Monday - Sunny and clear
A goodish day.
I tried to get up on time this morning, but I didn’t feel all that well. The room spun a bit and I just generally didn’t feel that great.
I stayed in bed until 9 and then did my usual stuff. I did a couple of loads of laundry today too, slightly inconvenienced by F leaving a load of his stuff in the machine. Wonderful person that I am, I hung it up for him so it would dry.
I had my breakfast and watched a bit of TV off the DVR. I had a fairly quiet morning. In the afternoon, I watched the rest of a film I’d DVR’d last week. It was rather good. It was called Little Boy. Not one I’d normally want to watch but had an interesting point of view.
I heard K downstairs and when the film was over I went down to say hi and to grab my lunch. I did offer some to her, but she was full. I brought it back upstairs and ate.
Around 4 I went down again, did my dishes, and then went outside to see if I needed to shovel snow. I didn’t really need to, but I did anyway. There was some ice that I tried to clean up and I neatened up other areas. I also tried to shave the snow a bit thinner so that it would melt. We still have so much snow.
I heard from F around his usual finishing time and he came back from work. He wanted to take a bath tonight, but I didn’t. I had taken a shower here last night, didn’t want to go to an onsen. Since his mother didn’t want dinner, we went to a Japanese restaurant. Funnily enough, it wasn’t the one we planned to go to, that had closed already. We ended up at a new-to-us place. It was fine and we might be back.
I asked that we go and get a few groceries so F took us to Mina again. They didn’t have any salads at all! I got some steamed vegetables for tomorrow and also more yogurt. We came back to the house and after a few minutes, F left for the local onsen.
I had a nice quiet time alone. I watched The Great British Bake-off and started re-watching The Silver Linings Playbook when F came back. He felt better, but not a lot.
We had a quiet evening together. I did up the plastic garbage for F to take out tomorrow morning.
That’s really about it. I had a good, quiet day today. Tomorrow I hope to do more laundry and maybe finish packing my suitcase and work on my column again. Come back later and see what I get up to. Until tomorrow….
