Breakfast Sunday

It was a breakfast in Little Tokyo day. J and I enjoyed breakfast there as usual. I had a toothache this morning so, I didn't eat much. I brought half of breakfast home. I am going to see my DDS this coming Thursday. I still have to wait four more days to fix my teeth.

I went out for a lunch with my friend. It was the French restaurant. I had avocado and mushroom omelette. It was great and sound healthy, too. I usually don't like to eat omelette here in US., because it too dry but this one was very good. It wasn't overly cooked so it  was nice and tender which I like. It was the great lunch.  I enjoyed it immensely.

I found a notice of missed call on my smartphone. It's strange, because I carry it with me all the time no way I missed call. Only one possibility would be this, call tone volume had setting as vibration. I check a volume of call tone and found It was setting as vibrate.  I didn't set it that way. Then, I found out what happened. My smartphone has volume button on the side body of phone. Every time I hold the phone I touch the button unconsciously and lower volume until it become vibration set up.

My pick up has new tires now. I have been driving my truck almost a year since I noticed tires were not look good. My mechanic said "They are way over the limit." So, I decided to get new one. I felt good driving my pick up on the way to my home. It was very smooth drive.

Watercolor Class

I had watercolor class this afternoon. 
When I came to the class room, it was totally empty. 
In the room there is nobody and no tables. 
A man was working there. He was waxing room floor. 
Well, where can we have watercolor class. 
I went down to the office and complain.  
Then we got a temporary room right next of our original one. 
It was larger than our room and more tables. 
So, I should say it was lucky accident.

N and I went to a restaurant on Larchmont street to have a breakfast. This is the first time came to this restaurant and I forgot to check the name of the place. I wasn’t really hungry so I looking for something light. They were names of ordinary breakfast menu. An  American breakfast is so big Just look at it I lose my appetite. So, I was looking for something light. I found a waffle with fruit topping. That’s sound light enough. I was right. It was just  about right amount of meal and it was good. I enjoyed it.

I tried 5 or 6 times and gave up. It was mystery. what was happening. Well, I still need cash, I have to go to bank and try it again.

A friend and I went to Japanese food market after the breakfast. He wanted to get Japanese udon noodles. So, recommended instant udon which has fresh noodles instead of dried one. I think some how it better than dried noodles.

He called me late and ask me how to cook the noodles. A cooking instruction is only Japanese. I thought imported product always English one too, but I was wrong. I explained how to make it. I am glade that I bought same noodles for my self so I now how to cook. Otherwise I can't explain to him on the phone. I think he got it because he didn't call me back. At least not yet.
