Here Comes the Sun!

Maybe...for a minute...if we're lucky!

Woke this morning to an unexpected thunderstorm...bloghopped, put together my shopping lists and called in prescriptions so that I can run errands this afternoon. Dottie is off this weekend; Laura flew to D.C. yesterday to spend the weekend with Bill and won't be back until Monday; John, Noel and the grandkids are busy this weekend.

So it's supposed to be a nice quiet weekend with just Dottie and I...for the first time in months I think!

She wants to see Mark Wahlberg's new movie "Max Payne" so we'll be doing an early show of that either tomorrow or Sunday. If we do two this weekend, "Appaloosa" is also on her list. I'll be waiting for "Nights in Rodanthe" to hit DVD, along with "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist". I like both of the "kids" playing the leads in that one...

And though they're in their 20's, I guess I'm at that point where if they're less than half my age, they're "kids"!

We have some Netflix that have been "sitting" while life "whirled" around us these last few weeks, and I bought "Leatherheads" last week when it came out; one I had really wanted to see "on the big screen".

So, there's probably already more on the list than we can get done before Monday morning!

I spent yesterday rearranging the basement and moving her plant stand and plants inside for the winter, along with rigging the plant lights and a timer, as we got down to 40 the night before last. I also, not being as hardy as some of my friends, vacuumed out our main furnace and lit it off, for which we were grateful night before last.

May the weekend be kind to each of you...

I love the term: "blog hop" ... and it's more art than science. But you've got to be careful, and that's why I like how you modify it as "hop" ... because it's easy if your not careful to get sucked into the blog "vortex" ... and when that happens, who knows when or where you'll emerge. Hope you had a good day and it worked.
