There’s nothing quite like a long weekend for recharging, spending time with the ones you love, and – at this time of year, at least – getting ready for the Oscars.
That’s right, my friends, the Oscars are coming right up and in light of that we saw
Hacksaw Ridge – nominated for Best Picture. I hated every minute of this excellent movie. If you know me at all you know exactly what I mean by that.
A Man Called Ove – nominated for Best Foreign Language Film. It is absolutely wonderful. It stays very true to the book and is just a lovely and moving movie without being sentimental at all.
Fences – also nominated for Best Picture and the last in this category that we hadn’t seen. Adapted from a play, it’s a little long but definitely very good.
Other fun things this weekend included a night of Mexican Train and music with Dale, a night of Thai food and doggies with Sean, a date day with Dale that included a ride in the Mustang and ended with terrific food and cocktails at a local upscale bar, some reading, some knitting, and plenty of relaxing.
And YES, for those of you who want to know – I tackled the closet.
It got worse before it got better.
But in the end there was 1 bag of rubbish and 4 bags for the local thrift shop. And a clean and organized closet.
That new bed, in case you’re wondering?
