Friday - Colder but clear
An okay day.
I got up this morning on time basically, and did some of my usual morning stuff. I cleverly got dressed quite early for a change and that was a good thing! I decided to watch yesterday’s NCIS: LA instead of today’s “live” and that was good as it was a continuation of Thursday’s. I also started a load of laundry in the middle of it. After it was over, I went downstairs, grabbed my breakfast and came back upstairs to eat.
I was halfway through my cereal when I heard the doorbell ring. K wasn’t up yet, so I bounded down the stairs. It was K’s brother and his wife, come for a visit. Of course, I didn’t know they were coming, and obviously, neither did K! I woke her up, but I couldn’t remember the name for brother in Japanese…probably because I never have to use it! Anyway, K got up and didn’t seem upset that they were already in the house!
I filled up the water pot in the living room and made my escape. I took my laundry over to the garage and hung it up, and started another load. I went upstairs to try and finish my breakfast, but when I had eaten a few bites, K called me downstairs to see the visitors off. K and I did a little chatting to about the visitors and she told me the correct word to use about her brother so that was good!
We went inside again and I went upstairs and finally managed to finish my breakfast. However, it was laundry grabbing time! Between doing laundry and dishes I was quite busy for a bit.
I came back upstairs, watched the second part of the NCIS and a bit of something on TV. I went down a little earlier than I have been recently and asked K if she’d like lunch. She turned me down, which was fine. I got my lunch ready to take upstairs. I had wanted some bread, and even though we bought it last night, I couldn’t find it! A few minutes later, after a frantic search on my part, K came through from the living room, with the remnants of my loaf! She’d eaten a couple of pieces, which of course was totally fine…I just wanted a couple of slices myself. I hadn’t expected her to run off with the bag of bread!
While I was preparing my lunch, K turned on the radio. Surprisingly for me, Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody came on and I had a vision of her doing the head-banging bit from Wayne’s World. I didn’t look, I didn’t want to spoil it for myself!
I went upstairs to eat again and had a quiet time. I watched a bit of TV and worked on an on-line thing that I do.
F came back to the house around 6 pm and I suggested going out for a drink since the weather was decent. He begged off as his back was too painful. I told him I’d run downstairs and check the avocados and would make guacamole with tortilla chips if they were okay. They were and I did. I also put out a plate of Ukrainian sausage from Canada and some crackers, smoked oysters and we called it a meal. It may not be the healthiest thing, but it was pretty good. K really loves the garlic sausage and eats a lot of it!
F and I did the dishes and then went upstairs. A friend of mine had some questions about our women’s group and I talked to her via Skype for a couple of hours. I had to beg off at the end as I needed a break! While I was on the computer with her, F went to bed and fell asleep. I felt a bit sorry for him. He worked all day today.
So that, in rather long-winded form is the story of my day. It wasn’t too bad at all.
I’m not sure what Saturday will bring, but I am hoping for a movie or something. Find out later!
