Sunday usually would be a free day for most people, but it was NOT that today.
Had to be at the community center soon after 9am to get ready for our annual neighborhood meeting at 10am. (Was asked to help with reception and check-in.) The meeting ended up being 2 and 1/2 hours, discussing plans for the upcoming year and looking over the budget from last year and this year. Lots of opinions, not too many clashes… over all, a good one, and about 150 people were in attendance.
After it finished up, 20 or so members of the neighborhood planning committee set things up to have lunch. We all chit-chatted about everything under the sun, packed up, cleaned up and got home at around 4pm.
From there, I got a call from a ramen shop owner I’m friends with and went to see him. Stayed for dinner, was planning to come home early, but his wife came and I ended up staying much longer… like until 11pm. (So much for coming home early!)
So, many apologies for a rather boring blog post. It’s been a LONG day and I have an EARLY morning and thinking about all those warm, fuzzy blankets on the bed… well, I could fall asleep quite easily right here in front of the computer as I think about them.
To those of you who have just started your Sunday, may you have a wonderful 18th! To those of you who are in my part of the world, may you have a peaceful sleep!
Good night from southern Japan… 🙂
