All Sorts of Excitement

Not really. Things have been pretty quiet, which I’ve been enjoying. I finally finished one mitten and started the second. I’m hoping to get that done before the weekend. And of course I need to make time to read our next pick for book club, “Marley and Me.” It looks cute and not too long. If only I could read AND knit….

I saw Passchendaele last week and didn’t really enjoy it. The more I thought about it, the less I liked it. It just seemed like a mellow dramatic play, not a feature film. The story was so-so, the acting seemed a bit stilted and I just didn’t believe most of the characters, although I thought the costuming and locations were well-done. I really wanted to like this movie. Sigh.

It was nice to stop out to Scott & Alison’s Halloween party. Unfortunately by the time Friday rolls around I’m usually pretty tuckered. Last week, for some reason, I was absolutely exhausted for the entire week, even going to bed a few hours early a couple of nights in a row. So by Friday, I’d worn my “Faye Wray from King Kong” Halloween costume to the office, and I just wanted to be comfortable so I switched costumes and pulled out my red & blue “Arwen from Lord of the Rings” dress that I’d made two or three years ago and I wore that. (It’s super comfortable and somewhat warm.) It was nice to see everyone and see their costumes.

I’m looking forward my mom coming up and visiting next weekend. And since I’m taking next Monday off, I’m looking forward to the fact that it is a long weekend.
