Weekend Update with Alyssa Goodnight
A small sum-up of our weekend…
Friday night we watched Hoot as a family, and it was unanimously voted a good movie. It was a little strange watching Cody Linley as a sun-tousled, barefoot do-gooder after watching him shake and shimmy on the ballroom floor in Dancing with the Stars, Season 7.
Saturday was an all-day Science Fair marathon for my husband and son…and a day of house cleaning, laundry, and distraction for me. Saturday night saw hubby and I watching the last episode of Pushing Daisies, Season 2 (for the first time). Sigh. Why on earth did they cancel that show??? Arrested Development is next on our list of shows we missed the first time around.
Also Saturday, I finished my FIRST EVER Georgette Heyer mystery, received from my parents for Christmas. All I can say is wow! That woman knew how to write dialogue. In fact, I’d venture to guess that 90% of that book was dialogue. Whew! There will be another Heyer mystery in my future.
Sunday, after church, I dragged the family to Target with me to check out eyeglass frames. I’d casually browsed through the new selection earlier in the week and found several I liked better than my current ones, which are about three years old. Hubby and I narrowed the field to two and then the boys all voted. It was unanimous–all three passing over the sensible frames for the whimsical ones, which were not among my early favorites. I’m not even exactly sure how they ended up in the running, and even now I’m second-guessing just slightly. They should arrive within the week, and at that time, I will solicit opinions on this blog. Exciting, huh?
Then late, late last night, or early Monday morning, our heater stopped working. I kept waking up wondering why I was so cold, trying to settle into a warmer position before falling back to sleep. At 6:45 when hubby finally got out of bed, it was 61 degrees in the house! I was wearing a winter hat and scarf when the repairman arrived.
Now, all is good. I’ve been sucked into The Lightning Thief and am eager to get back to it. Happy Monday!
