Monday Morning

I threw that little house decoration down the stairs and broke it a couple of years ago. It was seemingly innocently sitting on the side of my front door while we were having several feet of snow every single weekend for six weeks in a row (I might have inflated this in my memory and I don't feel like doing research on it right now). One of my neighbors came by and said "oh! so it is your fault!" and pointed to the little sled that says "let it snow." Immediately, I threw the thing down the stairs and it broke. I never threw it away because I really do like it, and things I have purchased at the gift shop at the hospital where I work are really precious to me. This year, I put it back together and hung it. I think it is time for it to be removed again. Because it is snowing, and snowing, and snowing, and then snowing some more. And it is cold.

Yesterday afternoon I was snoozing on my sofa when a dear friend called. She asked if I had seen the movie "Crazy Heart." I told her no, but then thought - I could just as easily go to a movie as sit on the sofa and watch the Olympics and sleep, so I hopped in the car and went to see it. I think it is a great movie. But, if you are a person who likes everything to be sunshine, puppies, and rainbows, don't go. It is hard to watch at times. But a movie about an alcoholic that is not hard to watch is probably not worth seeing.

I need to get in the tub and get dressed for this day - 12º and snowing. Then I get to get out of here and go to work! This is a good deal for me!

I love Jeff Bridges, and I loved Crazy Heart.

I have to see that movie. Have a nice day today, Mary!

I'm glad that you enjoyed the movie. It was hard to watch but I barely breathed until it was over. That's the sign of a good movie for me. Plus the music was great!

That's about the tenth recommendation I've heard - I do intend to see it.

I hope you're enjoying the same beautiful sunshine that I am. Makes it somewhat worthwhile.

Blessings and aloha...

I am still cracking up at you throwing that poor little sled.

Namaste

Confession: I've never heard of that movie, so I'm going to look it up on google.
The constant cold and snow sounds so depressing. I want you to be able to get out there and run until the only thing you can worry about is how to get a new darling running skirt you see in some catalog. I hoping a big ol' sunbeam comes down on your head today sweet snow cone.
