Tuesday - Hot and Sunny
A good day.
I had a normal morning basically. I watched the British and US news, went down and had breakfast and iced coffee with K and then came back upstairs to do some of my stuff.
I wrote 4 postcards today for postcrossing and also got them ready to go out. I blogged the ones I received recently too, setting up my blog so they would space themselves out on the next few days.
I offered K lunch, but she didn’t want it. I put mine together. It was just salad and chicken, but I liked it a lot. I offered K more iced coffee which she took.
After lunch I did my dishes and then got busy in the kitchen. I had decided to make bread pudding in my slow cooker. I didn’t have any of my cooking stuff around like measuring spoons and cups, decent sized bowls or non-metal spoons so it was a bit of guesswork putting things together. I made the custardy eggy bit in two batches…I managed to spill a lot of the first batch all over the table and floor. Sigh. I had a bit of fun cleaning it all up, but I got it done.
Around 2 pm the pudding was baking away in my slow cooker, so I went back upstairs. It was hot in the bedroom, hot everywhere actually. I changed all of my clothes as they were very sweaty.Bleck. I re-watched Sex and the City the movie and it was okay. The whole storyline bugs me, but not as much as it does in number two.
F called around 5 to say he’d be late and then I checked the pudding. Looked good, but needed more cooking time.
When F came home around 6:30 he brought some ice cream for our pudding. We all had a piece with some ice cream, and it was quite nice. It got good reviews. I did the dishes and also washed and put away my slow cooker, then got dressed to go out.
F had asked for a restaurant I don’t like much, so I said okay, but when he looked it up, he found it would close soon. Instead, I suggested going to Bikkuri Donkey!!! and F went along with me.
We had a nice meal, I had my usual, but shared some french fries with F.
After dinner we got some things at the grocery store then came back to F’s house. We gave K her food, put away the rest and then came upstairs.
And that’s really about it for my day. I did a little crochet in the afternoon, but not as much as I’d like. Tomorrow the weather is supposed to be a little cooler, but it may be more humid. Oh joy.
Come back later and see what I get up to. Until tomorrow….
