Day 5 of 6 Staycation is for 22nd May.
Just a simple day and a slight change of plan. But I did not mind, as it was a good enjoyable day anyway.
Woke up at 7am, so got up, got washed and dressed. Had breakfast, which I decided I am in the mood of a double breakfast of cereals. So it was a bowl of rice crispies, followed by weetabix. But this came in handy, as you will see.
I checked in at work to let them know all is well, then responded to another email that I have been waiting a reply from. I wonder how long now they will keep me waiting again.
I then checked my blog and read others. By the time I done all this and washed my pots, my neighbour came as planned. We chatted from then at 10am, right into the early afternoon. So gone past my lunch. But I wasn’t hungry. A couple of teas served during that time. Now you see why my breakfast came handy in the end? But we had a good time chatting and I think the time went quick. I’m a little tired for it. But I feel good all the same.
After my neighbour went, I checked on my blog and read a few others, then I decided for dinner, I’d have an omelette, after I was fancying this, or scrambled egg from our discussion on food.
Now I have had omelettes before, but it is first time doing my own. Here it is. I put some of dairy-free cheese on top, grated, after taking photo. I enjoyed with two slices of bread.
I then watched my dvd I have watched before, ‘Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.’
During watching my film, I started to smell strong smoke. My eyes were stinging a little too. Looking outside, while closing my window I had open, I could see a lot of smoke. I thought it was coming from opposite side of the road, but with the thickness of the smoke and trees in front of my property that made viewing to across the street difficult, so it was hard to tell. Not long after I closed my window, I could see my neighbour had warned me about smoke too and to close my window, in a text. Then I seen a fire engine go by. Whether it was for this fire, wherever the smoke was coming from, or going elsewhere, I don’t know. But in the end, like my neighbour who is also asthmatic and said he had to use his inhaler, I ended up having to use my inhaler as well.
I think it was about an hour this smoke went on for, before it stopped and when I thought it had finished, another thick smoke appeared during that time.
Although a hot day today, there was a breeze that picked up earlier and that breeze still there, probably brought the smoke this way, bringing it from a different direction to where I thought it originally was. But it was hard to tell.
After I watched my film, I put a tai chi dvd on again and did a bit of that, followed by some gentle stretches, before I went to bed.
