Tuesday - Cold, snowy and windy
A good day.
I got up this morning on time and turned on the heater. I did my usual morning things and enjoyed them as usual. Boring I know. True though and I’ll miss my little routine when I have to give it up.
F came home for his lunch again and I worked on scanning my cards to send. I got them done quickly as there were only three so far this week. I also had to arrange some stuff to send to my sister, so did that as quickly as I could. I planned to take some of F’s coins to the post office for him as well. I got ready to take everything to the post office and got there a little after 3:20. I started with the coins, deposited them and then paid for my envelope to go away. I had put the postcards in the outside mailbox.
Sadly I had to leave the nice warm post office, but not before I withdrew the money for the coins in something a little easier to carry. I strode off home again.
At home, I put out the money for F and then had my lunch. Today it was simple. I had a toasted onion bagel with some smoked salmon on it. Last night we saw a packet of smoked salmon in the shop for half price. Today was the last day on it and I got it. F said he didn’t want any of it, so I ate the whole thing. (It was less than 100 grammes, so don’t think it was a huge amount or anything!) It was amazing. Really, one of the nicest lunches I can remember having!
I did dishes after 5 and F called to say he was coming home, but would soon go out again. When he came home, he saw his money and told me I could have it. Woot! Yay.
While he was gone, I prepared the kitchen for dinner. I wasn’t cooking tonight, but I know how nice it is to start from a clean kitchen. Unfortunately, I usually am the one to clean it here!
F came home and made us a nabe. I went out to the genkan and tidied up a bit and tossed a few things that I know we didn’t need anymore. F has a lot of stuff out there, but I’m sure he won’t be going through it unless I make him.
Dinner was good. We’d bought a nabe soup base at the hundred yen shop on Monday and tried it tonight. It was a yuzu-chicken one and was pretty good for a hundred yen! F couldn’t eat all that much again, I’m sad to say.
I did the dishes and then settled in to start my column. I did do a little and I even watched most of a movie on YouTube to refresh my memory of it. I need to finish it when I can. I did a bit of knitting while I watched it too!
At 11pm I made myself some tea and went to the couch to sew and watch the Criminal Minds offshoot. I LOVE Gary Sinise, but I don’t really like the show at all. It comes over as being quite arrogant that these FBI officers go to other countries to “rescue” Americans. Not sure I can say exactly why I don’t like it, but the attitude on the show is very similar to the attitude that the Americans that lived near us had in Norway when I was a child. It was condescending, that’s how it seemed to me.
Anyway, I watched another couple of things tonight and worked on my blogs. That’s really about it for tonight.
On Wednesday, I hope to spend more time on my column and also do some packing of things if I get the chance. I also have to work on dinner, but F thinks he’ll be later so that gives me a bit of time I hope. Come back later and see what happens. Until tomorrow….
