Monday - Rainy and windy
A good day.
I got up this morning rather early and checked that F had taken out the garbage. There was a lot going out and he had. Hurray for that.
I stayed up and when I went looking for today’s clean clothes, found F’s shirt hanging on the drying rack. I have half promised him that I would fix it, but I told him it had to be clean first. Well, it was clean and I had a bit of time, so I did it. His button at the waist level had vanished, but in doing so, had ripped right through the fabric. However, F likes the shirt a lot and I thought I could figure things out for him. I made a patch for the back of the button and sewed it in, covering the hole. Then, I sewed on a button, which I craftily took from the bottom of the shirt. F tucks in his shirt, so no one will notice that it is gone. I finished just as he called to say that he was coming home for lunch. I didn’t tell him what I did, just hung the shirt back up again. I wonder if he’ll notice. (PS…I don’t have a suitable button to replace the one on the bottom, when and if I find one, I’ll likely add it.)
F had his lunch and then left again. He came back when he officially finished work and then went to his house.
I had lunch then. I finished up the taco mix from last week and it was lovely. I did the dishes then too, and decided to get to work.
I pulled out all of the old futon and quilts that have been moulding away in the closets in the tatami room and got them ready to go out. F promised me that he’d help me take them to the gomi station. We took a car load full of them and it was very interesting. It cost us about 700 yen.
I had wanted to ditch some old chairs from my school, but F said he’d take them to a secondhand store. I told him they were worthless, but he did it anyway. He got 200 yen each for them, which I let him keep since it nearly covered the other expense!

We had a nice coffee in Cafe Studio Cinq and then F dropped me off at home again for a while. He came back fairly soon after checking on his mother.
We had dinner at a fish restaurant tonight. Usually we have raw fish on rice, but since it was cold I wasn’t feeling it. I had cooked fish and F had raw. We also shared a salad, although I got most of it! F couldn’t finish his meal again tonight. I don’t know what is going on with him. He just isn’t enjoying his food lately. It might be his new medicine or just a holdover from his flu, I wish I knew.
We came home and after some tea, F went to bed. He got up a few times, but hopefully is sleeping now. I watched a bit of TV and also something off the DVR. I wrote 3 postcards as well tonight, just to have something to do!
Tomorrow I’ll be off to the post office at some point and I hope to get back to boxing, packing, sorting and throwing things out! Oh, how exciting. Come back and hear what gets done. Until tomorrow….
