Sunday - Hot and Sunny

A good day.

We had a good day today.  F and I both slept in this morning.  I went downstairs to use the loo before 10 and came back and told F that his mother was making toast.  He told me that he’d got up around 5 am and had set the bread maker, it was his bread that I smelt!  It was nearly ready and he brought me up a piece.  Yum.  Very nice.

We talked about what to do, and ended up going out for lunch with K.  After that, we drove to Atsumi Onsen and went to an Ashi-yu or foot onsen.  They have them in some of the streets, they are free to use and kind of nice.  We used one outside a cafe and then went in a few minutes and had drinks.  I had iced coffee and F and K had iced chai.  They thought theirs was too sweet, mine was fine.  

K didn’t want to explore any more of the Ashi-yu, so we drove back to Tsuruoka.  F and I relaxed for a bit at the house, and then he wanted to go out.  We checked about food for his mother, but she didn’t want any.  We went to a drugstore first and got a few supplies for the house, then we went to a karaoke box!   I hadn’t been to this one before, it was new to me.  F had been there for a work party a few years ago.  We had dinner there too.  F had ramen, even though I told him he wouldn’t like it.  He didn’t.  Mine was fine!  I had pork and kimchi on rice…yum.  We shared some french fries which were kind of nice.

We came back to the house via the grocery store so I could get a few things for breakfast and lunch tomorrow. We came upstairs and watched the second part of Twin Peaks the return.  It was super strange and the pacing seems so slow!  I am not sure how many episodes there will be, but I hope it gets better soon.  

F has finally gone to bed, but I don’t think he’s asleep.  I’m not terribly tired yet, but need to get some sleep soon.  Come back later if you will and see what happens on Monday.  Until tomorrow….
