A Few Things

The past few days have been interesting. Here are just a few notable things:

It was supposed to rain all weekend, but instead it was 80.

On Friday I saw a man towing a ski boat. Literally. He had a harness wrapped around his waist, and he was pulling the boat through our parking lot, and then he pulled it out onto the main street, turning left and blocking the middle of the road while he negotiated the corner. Two buses waited for him to finally tug the boat over to the side of the street, but after they passed him, he kept trudging down the street going who knows where.

Yesterday I had a horrible 'junior high' flashback moment. I was supposed to meet some girlfriends for brunch, but when I arrived, they were nowhere to be seen. The organizer apparently canceled with everyone but me. Having been stood up, I ended up calling husband crying on the street in front of the restaurant. I even wore a new cute outfit for the occasion. Hmph. Darling hubby rescued me and took me to my favorite breakfast place, and because the weather was nice, we sat at an outside table with Drewser, which was lovely. Then he sent me to the bookstore to treat myself to a new book. Claire Tomalin's Jane Austen: A Life ought to do the trick.

We watched The Lives of Others Saturday night and I think it may be the best movie I've seen in a long time. It was fantastic. I highly recommend it.

Breakfast, books, and hubby are indeed things to be thankful for. :)
