Friday - Cloudy and cooler
A surprisingly good day!
Yesterday I wrote of my plans to see my friend tonight and go to a movie. Well, plans change.
In the morning, my sister very kindly drove me to the bank and I took care of some business there. Then, I did a little shopping for things that I like to take back to Japan with me. Chiefly, things like headache medicine and blue mascara! We came back to the house and I had lunch while my sister picked up her son.
I got a text from my friend saying that she didn't feel very well, but I was charging my phone so I went upstairs. When I checked my phone a bit later, she had written more to say that she was feeling really bad and didn't think she would be able to come. I wrote her back a few messages to say how sorry I was and that she should really take care of herself first.
I told my sister and the others and some of our plans changed. My niece was supposed to go out with a friend too, but the friend cancelled on her. Instead, we decided to go out together for dinner! I took her to the same restaurant that I took my nephew to earlier this week and we enjoyed a nice meal together. Today we had some spring rolls and kimchi to start and then she had wor-wonton soup and I had grilled chicken vermicelli. I quite liked mine. After dinner, we went to the local Starbucks and had some iced tea and talked a bit more before going back to the house.
When we arrived it wasn't too late, so we all decided to watch a movie. We settled on Hidden Figures and all really enjoyed it. It was great to see a movie about women making it in an all boys club...made even more difficult because they were women of colour. My sister's family had visited NASA a few years ago, so they had seen some of the places in the movie.
And that was about it. I thought I might be able to have a chat with my husband tonight, but I couldn't reach him. He was taking his mother out for lunch so I know he was awake a while ago!
Tomorrow I will probably go to the hockey game to watch my nephew and then hopefully give my sister a hand with some of the pre-Thanksgiving dinner cooking. But, we'll see. Come back in a bit and see what I get up to. Until tomorrow....
