Sunday - Cold and windy, snowy too
A good day.
Just reading back in my blog, it was a year ago I announced that I was going to have to move. A lot has happened in that year, and even though the move is over, I still don’t feel “settled in” and don’t think I will for the foreseeable future. I feel like I have had to give up too much of my independence and autonomy. I am slowly getting used to things here, but that is still a long way from being at home here.
This morning F and I slept in quite late. I was out of bed and at my computer long before he was, which was rather surprising. I spent some of my time shaving his favourite sweatshirt. I’d bought a clothing shaver at the hundred yen shop earlier in the week and used it on his shirt. It really did look better afterwards.
Around 1 he started talking about lunch, so I suggested going for sushi since his mother would probably come too. We went to Kula Sushi, which was quite a success. We had 6 plates of onion rings between us…this time we started off with one plate each and then K asked if we could get some more, rather than stealing all of F’s! We had a nice time there and left a little after 3 pm.
I had to be at my friend’s apartment at 4 pm, so we dropped off K at the house and then came back downtown. We had about 20 minutes and F suggested going for coffee. All well and good, but we got to the mall a scant 10 minutes before I had to be at my friend’s. After one spin around the parking lot I suggested just getting coffee at a combini, so we drove off to one. There was one near her apartment. We went in, and neither of us bought a coffee! I got a bottle of mugi-cha for later and F got something too. F dropped me off at my friend’s apartment and we spent the next couple of hours chatting, crafting and then eating. Yum! My friend is a good cook and made some pakora for us. They were so good! I had supplied some chocolate covered dates and they were very nice too.
F called me around 7:00 pm and asked if I was ready to go. I wasn’t really, but I think my friend had other things to do. I let him come and pick me up and off we went.
We went to pick up a few things from the grocery store, but when we got to the parking lot, F asked if there was a movie on tonight that we could go and see. I checked, and there was! So, we ended up at The Zookeeper’s Wife. It wasn’t bad. I had read that it wasn’t great…I would say it was quite good. I didn’t love it but did think it was worth seeing.
After the movie, F and I hit up a convenience store for a couple of items and then came back to the house. I got the gomi ready to go out tomorrow and set up the garbage places for next week.
I took a shower but it was so cold in the shower room I was worried about freezing parts off. It didn’t happen, happily!
We had a quiet evening after that. F wanted to watch some of the Olympics on TV, I didn’t really. He got to see a few things so he was happy.
And that is that, quite honestly. It was a good day. I finally got the two pieces of my poncho sewed together. I’m trying to fish out the basting line now, but it isn’t going well. Now if I can just do the crochet bit around the neck I’ll be happy!
Come back later on and see what I get up to on Monday. Until tomorrow….
