My windows are filthy.
Embarrassingly so. It's always amazing to me how dirty the air in New Orleans must be; because I don't think I've ever lived anywhere before in my life where dust accumulates so quickly.
Anyway. At some point this weekend I shall have to do something about it.
Thanksgiving was a lovely day; the pizza was amazing and we watched two movies, Absolutely Fabulous (which was so bad it was sad) and Neighbors 2, which was actually quite funny. If someone would have told me before watching that the movie I was really looking forward to would be terrible and the one I was watching because I thought it would be terrible would be enjoyable, I would have scoffed in utter disdain. But Rose Byrne is quickly becoming a favorite actress of mine, and this is the first thing I've ever seen Zac Efron in, and he played the role of douchey frat bro aging out much better than Rob Lowe did in St. Elmo's Fire; in fact, I kept thinking as I watched that he would be perfect in the inevitable remake.
I also got further into Elizabeth Little's wonderful Dear Daughter, which I am also really enjoying. I started off the day watching another documentary series, Secrets of English Castles, and was about halfway through the episode on Dover Castle when Lisa arrived with our pizza, and once I'm finished working today (Paul won't be home until really late this evening yet again)I am diving back into it. I really am delighted to discover all the documentaries on all of my streaming apps; I see plenty of informational and enjoyable viewing in my future.
We also watched the LSU game last night; GEAUX TIGERS. It's really quite a shame, as they lost four games by a total of twenty points. Yet another season so close, and yet so far. The coaching situation should be resolved soon; one thing for certain is that LSU football is never dull.
I also can't believe my vacation is almost over. Where did the time go? I didn't get nearly as much finished this week as I wanted to, and yet...I can't really see where I wasted time or goofed off a lot. But the primary purpose of a vacation is to get rested, and I certainly have rested this week and gotten a lot of wonderful sleep. We shall see how that translates into next week when I return to work, won't we?
And now I suppose I should return to the spice mines.
Here's a hunk for the day:
"another documentary series, Secrets of English Castles..."
That sounds interesting - I hope you get to see (or have seen) the castle here - Lincoln Castle - which has lots and lots of history!
So glad you've enjoyed your break.
