I’ve got a great weekend planned – my sister Deb is coming across the state from Silverdale to visit for three days. I am ignoring the reason she’s coming: to see Marni and Hans and their boys before they move to St. Louis in June or July. We’ll spend most of Saturday, Sunday, and Monday together and then Deb and the kids will head back home on Tuesday. Pray for good weather on Snoqualmie Pass as she crosses the mountains.
We had three inches of snow here yesterday! It didn’t stick on the roads, and mostly melted in the afternoon, but it came down like the dickens for a few hours. March comes in like a lion, goes out like a lamb, my foot. I think March got things topsy-turvy this year.
I have red fingertips and my hands smell like vinegar. Anyone have a guess about what the kids and I did today? And, no, we didn’t dye our Easter eggs a week late.
Kevin and I are watching Stranger Than Fiction right now. Well, he’s watching – I’m half-watching and typing this post. I’ve seen it before – with Michelle – but he hasn’t, and I knew he would like it. I like watching movies again, but for some reason it drives Kevin crazy if he knows I’ve already seen a movie. I try not to let him know – while avoiding out-and-out lying, of course – because I know he’ll like it if he just watches it.
Well, I better get on to the links, because it’s getting late and I should be heading to bed soon.
~ Yahoo! has listed the 10 Most Historically Inaccurate Movies. Bummer – I really like Gladiator and Patriot. Why do they have to change so much in films? History is fascinating enough as it is!
