Wednesday - Warmer and clear
A good day.
I had the usual morning so won’t even bother writing it up for you all! F called again to ask me to start the water for his ramen. I think it is a little cheeky of him to ask me to do that since he knows that I hate the stuff and he uses my pan that he wrecked to make it in. I no longer acknowledge the pan at all. He dirties it and I leave it in the sink for him to wash.
In the afternoon I packed up a box of DVD’s and also picked up many of the used batteries that we have lying around the apartment. I put them in a clear plastic bag near the door and wrote on the calendar when to take them to the gomi station. I prepared a small bag of stuff for my friend in the next town, mostly stuff that I am returning to her.
I laid out the squares that I have been crocheting on the bed today to see if I have enough or not. I had the feeling that I needed to do one more, but big surprise…I’m actually done! I have the perfect number. Hurray. Now to finish sewing them all.
|This was just a fast layout to count them and check I had enough.|
Usually I try and hide the strings better.
I also took a picture of the knitting that I have been doing. I’ve put quite a few hours into it but it doesn’t look like much! Sigh.
|My tiny cowl. My neck is short, but not that short!|
In the afternoon, F popped back in between driving assignments and then popped back out again. I watched some of my TV from the DVR and deleted it, and even had an early and yummy lunch.
In the evening, F called around 6 pm to say he was coming home and then did. We got changed and decided to go to Cocos for dinner. I really wanted their “Ethnic Chicken” and the roasted potatoes that come with it.
We ran a few errands after dinner. F picked up kerosene for us and then we bought a few groceries for tomorrow and the next night’s dinner. We’re going to have tacos. I’m straining some yogurt overnight to make fake/low-cal sour cream and tomorrow I’ll look up the recipe for taco seasonings and will probably grate some cheese too.
I watched Macbeth on the telly when we came home. It was a newer version of the Scottish play with Michael Fassbender. I like him a lot usually, but I’m not sure that I liked this version. Of course, I did miss the beginning, but it was really hard to understand what everyone was saying, and I really know Macbeth, so that was disappointing for me.
I followed that up with some regular TV and did some square sewing. I got about 6 squares joined tonight and then I joined that set to the one I had done before. Tomorrow afternoon I hope to be able to block the remaining squares.
F went to bed and I will try and go too. I foolishly had some coffee at dinner, so I’m a little wired, but will probably be able to sleep.
Tomorrow I could have a busyish day, so please come back later and see what I get up to. Until tomorrow….
