View of Guerin this morning at 7:30 looking out from the vacant farmstead and the bean field (and yes, I agree, those beans should have been walked early on in the season). Just lovely to pause a bit after dropping Matt off at school and appreciate the view...it takes me back and makes me smile.
READING: Still reading The Tree...way too much movie watching going on over here this week.
POOLSIDE READING: Finishing Donna Leon's second mystery book (1993) Death in a Strange Country; 14 more to go in that series...yahoo! What's not to love about reading a series of books set in Venice?
LISTENING TO: Snow Patrol...am a huge U2 fan, Snow Patrol may be there someday and I can say that I have been listening to them for years...they are having a good run...those Irish boys do rock nicely, don't they?
COOKING THROUGH: Apple recipes...it is, after all, apple season...and, don'tyaknow...got one for homemade applesauce in the slow cooker going right now. The house smells divine...cinnamon and apples...how delicious!
FAV NEW FIND: When young men are transporting a date to Homecoming, they suddenly take a great interest in cleaning, vacuuming, dusting, windexing, armoraling, the transportation vehicle into pristine condition...Blue Bernice enjoyed her spa treatments and she and I are hoping that the next school dance is not too far off (the boys aren't actually allowed to "date" yet, but they can attend school dances with a girl this year). Blue Bernice looks as good as the day we brought her home from the new car lot...if she were a boat, she would be yare...okay, maybe not for "speed and agility," but she is definitely the "set for action and ready" part of yare!
FAV THING TODAY; Well, all week actually as AMC is running 7 days of Hitchcock movies...I love Hitchcock movies and have been wasting away each evening enjoying such with proper movie-watching style (alternating between chair and couch and popcorn with salt or without)...and staying up much too late! Tonight: The Man Who Knew Too Much. Trouble With Harry is slated for 8 p.m. Friday (tough one...Guerin second half or Hitchcock...hmmmm...oh, wait, it is also on at 3 p.m. Saturday...this can be our movie after our girls' lunch...we can just watch it here in the new Men's Den as they will all be gone for the day! I love it when I don't have to choose between two favorites and can have both...life seldom works out that way, however, so I will be very appreciative that in this case it does).
SCRAPBOOK PAGES THIS WEEK; Ha ha ha...too nice outside to do much in this regard, and there are those Hitchcock movies this week.
GOING TO: Friday: Swimming, Guerin football; Saturday: Guys going to Catholic Men's Conference, leaving me free for at the very least, swimming, a chick flick and lunch with girlfriends; and Sunday: Mass, singing, golf, swimming, and LifeTeen. Enough to keep anyone busy and happy.
PRAYING FOR: The Catholic Men's Conference and the Attendees, please join me.
