Monday - Cloudy and rainy and muggy
A good day.
I got up this morning and did my usual things. I filled up my water pot and had a couple of cups of tea. I sorted my laundry so I could wash it after breakfast.
I had breakfast with K, just cereal again, but it was nice. I did the dishes and then did my laundry. While my clothes were washing, I also worked on my packing. I hope I can pack enough of the things I want to take with me!
I did lunch today with K as well, it was our leftover nabe from Friday and I heated it up. It was rather good, and it was nice to have something warm again.
In the afternoon I did a few things upstairs, including working on my suitcase. I watched a bit of TV, I made some labels for my suitcase and I sent off an email to a friend. Oh, I also did some moderating work.
F called to say he’d be late, and he was. He didn’t come home until after 6:30. We decided to go and see a movie tonight, so had to get K something for her dinner. We did that, delivered it, and then had to see about our dinner.
Tonight, I suggested going to the place near the main post office. F likes it and it isn’t too expensive. They use local ingredients too. We went and for ages were the only customers. I had kara-age and F had a curry dish. His looked really good, mine was okay.
We finished up our day by going to see a movie at Machinaka Kinema. It was a Ken Loach film called “I, Daniel Blake”. It was good, as his films usually are, and quite funny in places, but also sad. I think we both liked it a lot. It was a bit about the rat race of being unemployed and needing benefits but not being able to get them because of bureaucracy.
We came back to the house and I spent a few minutes preparing the plastic garbage to go out. I even took it out to the garage and sorted out what was there. I came back in and after a bit of telly went and took my shower.
Really, that’s about it for today. I wrote a few postcard entries on my other blog so that I could leave it for a while. It’s hard to believe that this time next week I’ll be somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. Crazy!
Anyway, F is off work tomorrow and we have plans so I must away. Come back Tuesday night and see what I get up to. Until tomorrow….
