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….
