The trouble with a long weekend is you haven't really got a clue what day it is.
All day yesterday we felt it was Saturday
Today has been a Sunday day.
Nice to know we still have Sunday to come.
Last night we watched Bridge of Spies which we hadn't seen and we really enjoyed it. I can honestly say we have loved every Tom Hanks film we have ever seen (and I think we have seen most of them) bar one - Charlie Wilson's War. We couldn't get into it and the sound was dire. He is a very prolific actor and the list of his films is immense. I just had a rough count and we have seen 29 of them and some have been real favourites we have seen over and over. The Money Pit was a film we watched on video and one of the few we had to pause as we were laughing so much we couldn't catch our breath. League of their Own is one of our all time favourite films as is Apollo 13. I love Philadelphia and the Green Mile and we enjoyed the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons are are awaiting Inferno and Sully on video. I think he is a terrific actor - one of the truly greats of our time.
I have caught up on my weekly pages today and am up to date at the end of week 8. I am so pleased I am doing this bit by bit and not in one foul swoop this year. Not every week holds something exciting, but this week did.
They are not works of art - very simple pages and journalling to record the mundane days of our first retired full year
I like the fact I don't have to worry if there is not a photo for every day - for some days there are many, for other nothing. It doesn't matter. It will serve as a nice record for the two of us.
Today I am thankful for
- a chilled out day (and actually - as it happens - a chilly day too)
- ibuprofen gel - I am struggling with my neck - goodness knows what I have done!
