Thursday - Sunny but cool
A busy day.
I woke up this morning before 7:00 as I have for the past couple of months. F wasn't up. In fact, he decided not to go to work. His back was bothering him again. He didn't want to leave the house until a bit after 8:00 am. I was a tad bothered as I had things I wanted to do, but I also really wanted a bit of a lie-in!
We left after 8:00 this morning, and drove to the apartment. There I set the DVR for my two morning shows and we went off to have breakfast at Gusto. It was rather nice to have some peace and quiet and enjoy a slower paced morning.
We went back to the apartment, I changed into apartment cleaning clothes, and we both got busy. F did a lot today. He cleaned the toilet and the balcony and the shoe closets. I cleaned the balcony first, I swept a lot of the leaves up and redid part of the window that needed it. I also cleaned the genkan. F had done the heavy lifting of emptying it, I did the dusting and wiping. I also cleaned the mail box for good measure. Really cleaned it.
We stopped along the way for lunch, courtesy of the butcher's shop that is now a very busy restaurant. It was good, not great today.
We stopped working on the apartment around 7:00 pm. We had done a lot, but there is so much more to do. Sigh.
We brought K a bento for her dinner, unloaded the car and then we went out again. I suggested a Chinese place near the house so we went there. I wasn't overly impressed tonight, but it was okay. I had wanted more vegetables, but the dishes that F wanted didn't have that many.
We came home after dinner and came upstairs. We ended up having a nap for an hour or so before waking up. We played a couple of card games. I tried to teach F to play Blackjack, but I realized that I don't know how to play Blackjack! Oh well, he knows the basics now, if not the exact rules.
And that's about it. At one point in the day, I told F that he probably worked harder in the apartment than he would have at work. It might be true! He is still in a lot of pain, but the better weather today may have helped him a bit.
Tomorrow I'll be back to the apartment. I plan to wash walls again and perhaps pack up more of the things I've been using in the apartment. I should also clean the fridge and toss any remaining outdated stuff. There really isn't much though.
Come back later if you want and see what I get up to. Until tomorrow….
