Here it is already Monday again! It was a pretty low-key weekend for me. I was recovering from a cold and didn’t feel like doing much. That meant Mike and I didn’t do anything special for St. Patrick’s Day. 😦
But, regardless, it was a weekend! 🙂 It’s actually much nicer now than it’s been lately. By ‘nice’, I mean not raining and some patches of blue sky. It’s still only in the mid-40’s. 🙂
Last night I watched the movie Memento at the same time Lia and her friend were watching it. It kind of made for a “virtual” movie night. 🙂 Mike was going to watch too, but he got involved in working on his track and couldn’t tear himself away. It was a very interesting movie. Very dark, but very thought-provoking so for those of you who like thought-provoking movies (TOM!), you’d probably really like it. It had Carrie Ann Moss in it, which was cool. I really like her. 🙂 Although it wasn’t a scary movie at all, it kind of scared me because apparently my scare threshold is about equal to that of a four-year old. 🙂 I held Piper tightly in some spots, and Piper screeched unappreciatively.
I think I already mentioned that Mike got a new camera, and I got his hand-me-down camera. Mike is getting into photography hard-core. He’s reading a bunch of books and forums on lenses, focal length, and optics in general. That’s his “fun downtime” activity when he’s not working on his music tracks. 🙂 His new camera seems really cool. He’s already taken a few pictures of random objects that look really nice. It’s his first camera where you actually buy the lens separately. I, on the other hand, am perfectly happy with his hand-me-down point and shoot. I’ve already taken some nice pictures of Piper, but she’s very uncooperative. As soon as I point a camera at her, she comes and rubs around my feet, making it pretty much impossible to snap a good shot of her. I also tried snapping some pictures of snow coming down, but since it wasn’t sticking to the ground the pictures look more like rainy sleet than they do snow. Oh well. 🙂
Mike and I are looking forward to Margi coming to visit in a couple weeks! I’m not sure exactly what her schedule is like since she’ll also be hanging out with friends, but it’s always good to see family so Mike and I will be glad to see her! (And she better bring some pictures of Cora for us to see!) 😉 I hope the weather’s warmer by the time she’s here! As warm as it’s been in Michigan lately, this will definitely not be a pleasant change for her unless it starts warming up.
I’m hoping everyone else did fun things for St. Patrick’s Day! I saw a girl at the coffee shop who had on bright green sparkly nail polish and I felt a pang of envy. 😉 That would have been a small but festive statement for me to make. Maybe next year, if I remember! 🙂 How about anyone else? Anyone do anything fun?
