Yesterday, Terra was on call all day so it wasn’t totally a real day off – this was her first real day off.
I made cinnamon French toast with cream cheese icing and this year’s first large cappuccinos for us this morning.
We discovered the music (and dance) of Lindsey Stirling.
We watched Restless. I say of it what I said about Rabbit Hole – I’m genuinely glad it exists, someone out there needs this film in their life right now. But I don’t. That doesn’t make it a bad film – I thought both were very good films – but neither speaks to me personally – I couldn’t relate. But I’m glad I saw them. Someday I might need either one of them. And I may very well meet someone who needs one of them and now I’ll know to recommend it.
Made a dinner I really didn’t like but Terra did. Chicken and pasta with alfredo sauce, garlic bread, and a baked parmesan asparagus thing I really thought might work but I hated it.
Remember how I said she was working on the first day of balloon fiesta? Well, that has changed. The scheduler from work called and left a voicemail asking her to call back, she had a favor to ask. Terra assumed the worst – they wanted her to come in today. I finally persuaded her to call and she wanted her to switch a day with someone. It wasn’t until after she accepted and hung up that I realized it meant she’d now be off the first day of balloon fiesta.
We actually watched two movies today – both without Wesley, which is a rarity. We watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in HD on Netflix streaming. We’ve both seen it once before, both several years back. It is certainly a powerful film with a profound message. But I think once every few years is good enough for me.
