Wednesday - Cloudy but warmer
A good day.
F had the day off today, so he slept in. We actually stayed up quite late last night. I got up when my alarms went off, he didn’t. It took a while before he got up. I thought he was going to go to the doctor early-on, but didn’t. Sigh.
After NCIS (I had to watch it!) we went out for breakfast. By the time he was ready though, it was 10:30 and there aren’t any good places that do breakfast then. I finally suggested going to the bakery in the Mall as they have a seating area and sell baked goods and coffee. It was a good idea. We went in, bought our stuff and sat and ate.
After we finished, F went to his doctor and I did a little shopping. I first went and got his Valentine’s Day presents (Shh! Don’t tell him!) and then a little looking around for me.
F was finished soon and came to meet me. I suggested going to the restaurant in the hotel attached to the mall for lunch and we went to check out the dish de jour. It was soba, so a big no from me. Just then, a relative of F’s came and stood near us and had a loud discussion with a woman. F dragged me out of there. I didn’t know it was a relative and F told me the story of how the man’s wife tried to tell him that after we got married I had to change my nationality. They apparently had a few arguments, F and the wife.
We ended up in Foodever again, and this time I planned to go to the meat restaurant. However, it was closed today. I had fish which was really nice. F had it too but wasn’t as impressed as I was. I think I liked it because it didn’t taste “Japanese”, he didn’t like it because it didn’t taste “Japanese”. Maybe.
|Sushi, grilled cod with an apple/kabu salad, mushrooms, fish in tomato sauce, roasted potatoes and a creamy cod soup on the side. So yum!|
We walked over to the train station and took care of buying my tickets for my trip to Narita next month. I’m getting so excited. The ticket guy was worried about a bit wait I’ll have in Niigata train station, but I’m not that concerned. As long as I have a book or some juice in my phone battery, I’ll be fine.
We came back to F’s house to check on his mother. She was fine apparently and didn’t need food.
F and I went off again, this time to the Internet Cafe. It wasn’t my idea really, but it was okay. We each got a massaging chair and spent the next 3 hours relaxing.
After our time was up, F wanted dinner. He chose a place out in Kushibiki. It was okay, not great. I think they had a bad night, that’s all.
On the way back to Tsuruoka, we had a quick stop at the MaxValu and bought a few groceries and a dinner for his mother. However, when we got back to the house, all the lights were off and I think she went back to bed.
There was a lunar eclipse and a Super moon tonight, but it was very cloudy here so we couldn’t see it at all. It was a bit sad.
And that is basically my day today. It went well, and it was really nice to get out of the house. I am really pleased about getting my train tickets, so yay.
Come back later and find out all about Thursday. Until tomorrow….
