On Friday, Peter asked me what I had planned for the weekend. “You guys are usually doing something or another, right?” Yeah, that’s usually the case. This past weekend, though, was 48 hours of pure, unadulterated lounging. It involved sleeping in, strong coffee, internet surfing, movie watching, bacon pizza, wine sipping, nibbling on persimmons and chestnuts, and absolutely no housework at all.
Today at work, we were all talking about the new E-2 visa regulations. In addition, it looks like we’ve hired a new teacher – a friend of Bart’s. He’s from Kentucky and has a banjo! During my children’s class today, I took the kids out to collect leaves. It was nice to go for a walk in the fall weather and play with the kids as we threw dried leaves on each other and had a contest to find the biggest leaf. We’ll be making these leaf wreaths this week. It’s very easy and instructions can be found here.
The movies I watched this weekend:
- American Gangster – Good! Can you believe Frank Lucas was clearing $1 million a day from selling heroin in the late 60s? Very interesting story.
- Hot Rod – Terrible. I fell asleep for most of the movie. When I did manage to wake up, I fell back asleep because it was so dumb.
- Shoot ‘Em Up – Good. It was action packed and held my interest, but most of the scenes were just down right ridiculous. Logic and laws of gravity were completely ignored. Still, I think that was part of its appeal.
