Monday - Clear and sunny for some of it
I woke up this morning surprised that I had fallen asleep. I wasn’t able to fall asleep as easily as I usually do today, I think it was because of the coffee I had at the restaurant yesterday evening. Darn. F had gone and I hadn’t heard him this morning.
I watched the news as usual and thought about doing laundry but didn’t. I really should have, but the pile is quite big and I didn’t feel like it. I had a quiet morning, but I did answer the door when we got a delivery. I didn’t see K until noonish and then she went back to bed. She needs someone like her daughter to come over and take her out for a bit. Someone to make a big fuss over her, unlike me who basically just leaves her alone.
I watched some telly, had my lunch and even worked on my column. I think I have it finished, I just need to rework the opening and the closing. Yay me.
I texted F today to tell him about his delivery and he said that he was thinking of taking a day off soon, did I have an idea of when would be good. I suggested that he take next Friday off and then he could join me in Niigata a day early. I’d have to get the hotel to accept me having someone in my room, but that probably wouldn’t be a big hassle. I hope. He’s thinking about it, but we’re not sure if it would be a good idea to leave K alone for two nights. He’s supposed to come to Niigata on Saturday for one night. We’ll see how it goes. Fingers crossed it works out.
F called me after 5 pm to say that he was on his way, so I went downstairs and got started on dinner. It was a simple one tonight, just roasted chicken in the toaster oven, microwaved broccoli, rice and miso soup for the mister and his mother, toast for me. I actually really enjoyed it. Oh, yeah, there was salad too.
After dinner, F washed the dishes and I dried them, then I did up the garbage for taking out. I’d forgotten last week. I also put the meat trays by the door to return to the grocery shop.
After a few minutes, F and I went out to the grocery shop. We did return the meat trays and I got things on my list. F was a bit odd if I’m honest. He wants to eat the crab that we got yesterday at the gas station for dinner. That’s not that strange, but he keeps saying we don’t need anything else with it. Umm….really? I would like something, not sure what exactly. I’m also not sure that two crabs are going to feed three people…they aren’t THAT big!
We also picked up some kerosene because we were nearly out and came back to the house. I sort of wanted to go out somewhere, but whatever.
We watched Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix tonight. It was good. It’s probably my least favourite of the movies though, I really don’t like Dolores Umbridge!
And that’s about it. I watched a few minutes of the Grammys rebroadcast. I enjoyed “The Body Electric” performance from Fame and I was even happier to see a little flash of Lee Curreri playing the music. He was Bruno in the film and TV series of Fame, and was my favourite character!
Tomorrow I have laundry to do and to edit my column. I’ll see if there is anything else that I can do too. Come back later if you will and see how things go. Until tomorrow….
