or maybe that's "utters".
I didn't realize til just now that it has been so long since I posted
an entry. This update won't cover everything, but some highlights
are touched upon. Hopefully, I won't rest on my rhodedendrons too
long before the next post!
Well, my guy and I went to see Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion,
Witch, and the Wardrobe. It was fine, very similar in themes with
the Lord of the Rings, but I guess that isn't very surprising since
Lewis was very influenced by Tolkien in other matters as well.
We also went to see King Kong, which was good. I've never seen
any other version, so I wasn't doing comparisons, but obviously I was
familiar with the whole saving the damsel in distress, fighting off the
airplanes, whilst balancing on the empire state building. I mean,
I don't think you can grow up in US and not have some imagery of those
elements ingrained at some point.
My father's birthday was last week. I called him and, as
tradition holds in my family, sang "Happy Birthday" to him. It
was a good conversation.
My guy and I are driving out to see my folks on Thursday. My guy
will return to MS to be with his mother on Christmas Eve, while I will
stay with my folks as I haven't seen them since LAST Christmas.
I'm really excited about the visit.
I'll be taking Ace, my Boston Terrier with me. He is older and
his coat is thinner, and he minds the shivery cold very much. My
neighbors are watching my other two pupsicles and they are lending me
their pet carrier. The carrier is not so much for the trip but
for the stay, that was he can bed down for the night and I won't have
to worry about him roaming and "marking" the place (well, he is a
little incontinent....ok, he's alot incontinent...but I still love him,
even if he is a lil stinker).
Ziggee curls up with Shaddow and they will be fine. I cannot
imagine taking all three of them in the car, nor can I see imposing on
my folks for that length of time with all of them. So, I'll
bundle Ace up in his lil sweater (he looks so dignified...well, he
does!) and harness and take his leash, bowls, food, toys, etc.
Well, I've got to run, got lasagna baking and it smells sooooooooooo good!!!
