The guy on hotel reception this morning wanted to practice his English and what he wanted to say was ‘you have had a long stay.’ Instead, he said ‘ I think you have lived too long’

Or maybe that’s what he meant :(

Saké!

Three new batches (different yeast for each but same koji) coming soon. For now I am drinking good commercial saké.

I have been in a rare bad mood all day today. No real reason why. I hope I wake up on the right side of the bed tomorrow because it annoys me no end to be in a bad mood. See what I mean? Huh!?

They played ‘Pink Orange Red’ by Cocteau Twins on the local radio this morning at about 6:30. I was chuffed as mint balls!

Last night I ate the best arancini I’ve ever tasted. I’ve got to learn to make them!

Never heard of them but checking them out, I'd love to try them. I will be keeping me eyes open.

Today, I decided that I was taking a real vacation day. I've been busy of late and saw an opportunity to just RELAX today. Do what I want to do when I want to do it (other than feeding Phoebe of course, she always decides when the time is ripe for that, which is all the bloody time. :) ).

But seriously, I stayed up late last night watching old sitcoms reruns. Slept in almost until noon, rose to a slight rain outside and cool air. Slowly had my herbal tea and then prepared a brunch of sausages, eggs, taters and lots of cheddar. relaxed for a couple of hours, watching more reruns and playing fun little games on my phone. and on and on.

Oh, it has been well worth it. Well worth it.

You know, it's amazing sometimes to just sit there and stare at the sleeping cat for 5 minutes.

It's only 8pm and I wonder if I should get dressed or just stay in my pjs. :D Phoebe has no opinion on the matter.



Ooooops. I thought I was making an entry in my diary. Oh well. Sorry about that. Where's my eraser now I wonder? I'll look for it tomorrow.

The municipal pool across the street is finally open for the season. It actually opened yesterday. It was raning buckets, so, nobody showed. Today, so far, it's sunny but only 14C outside (it's a large outdoor pool). I haven't seen anyone enter yet. That'll be different later when the thermometer hits above 20C I think.

I never use the pool anyway. I've always been a horrible swimmer, one that sinks to the bottom straight away. Ole bag'o'bones.

Two new batches of saké pressed, one to go. So far so good.

Good stuff!!

I took off work early today. It’s hideous and hot, and I’ve come to a local bar and I’ve got a good seat at the bar. The wine is fucking lovely and the AC is on. I’ve got a great book and I’m pretty happy. Y’all should join me!

It’s very hot here as well 100 F +/- 3. I skipped open mic last night because of the temp but found myself practicing the lyrics to Wicked Game (Chris Isaak) in my sleep.
