Thursday - Warm and sunny, then rainy
A good day.
I got up this morning, but it was a bit of a struggle. I made it just as the British news was starting on the telly. I had some tea and after my NCIS: LA fix went downstairs. I talked to K and she wanted to have toast this morning for breakfast. I prepared that for her and had my usual yogurt and granola. I asked her if she preferred coffee or tea and she said coffee, so tomorrow, I’ll bring down some coffee for our breakfast drink.
I did a bit of laundry for F and also before breakfast took out the garbage which he had forgotten to take with him. I snapped a couple of pictures of the day, it was so nice outside.
|All that overhanging snow fell on the house steps. Bad design says I.|
|Along the road outside the garage. Look at the blue sky!|
I came back upstairs and did some online stuff. I also did a bit of sewing. I had noticed that one of F’s uniforms had a pocket hanging off the front, so I mended it. It wasn’t perfect, but I think it’s okay. I think! It is surprising how long things like that take.
Lunch was interesting today. Last night, F had bought his mother some tonkatsu for her dinner, but she’d only eaten half of it. I thought that she’d probably like it for lunch, so heated it up for her, along with some things that I bought for us to share. We had some gyoza, some chicken roll, salad and soup. Well, K skipped the tonkatsu completely, had most of the gyoza and half of the chicken roll, plus a bit of salad and some soup. It was fine, but it surprised me. Sometimes I think she doesn’t eat much, but other times she eats a lot. Still, it is good to see her eat since she didn’t eat much when she was sick.
In the afternoon I planned to do some wrapping, but it just kept getting put off. Around 4 pm, I went out and shovelled snow. I started with the driveway since it was still light enough to see it. I took out the big chunks of snow that the snowplough left behind. K came out to see what I was doing and sort of asked me to do the steps of the house. Of course, I was going to anyway, but I did an especially good job of them! It was quite warm out and a little rainy, so I did get a bit wet.
When I finished I came back inside and up to my little lair. I did some computer stuff and watched the news that I had missed while I was outside.
F didn’t get back to the house until after 7 pm. He’d had to go to Yamagata today. He said Yamagata city didn’t have any snow!
We talked about dinner and F checked with his mother. She’d finally eaten the tonkatsu so didn’t need anything. That left us free. I suggested an Internet Cafe visit and a cheap dinner first. We went to a gyudon place and then went to the not very busy Internet Cafe. It was great. I sat in my chair prepared to do a little crochet and fell asleep. I basically snoozed for two and a half hours. I would set the chair to massage, wake up when it finished and re-start it. I didn’t do any reading, crochet or internet using. I guess I was tired.
We came back to the house via the almost closing grocery store to get a few things for tomorrow’s lunch. I got some hot salad and some tongue. I hope I can put together an interesting lunch with that.
Back at the house, F and I vegged and I watched a little TV. He’s trying to sleep now, and I really should get some sleep too.
I will probably update tomorrow night, but if I don’t, there won’t likely be an update until Tuesday at the earliest. I’m out of town over the weekend. Don’t miss me too much. Got to go. Until tomorrow….
