1 See that little square with the pearly orange color? That's the color I had in mind and I might still have been able to put the pearl stuff on and get that, but frankly, I give up. That orange bathroom totally defeated me! The color I chose instead is right below it with the writing on it. Hopefully it can be enlivened with colorful items accents. I do like color.
2 This week we celebrated both my sister's and my dad's birthdays. They both cleverly sidestepped April Fool's Day by hours. My mom found a card I gave Dad a couple years ago. If you enlarge, you can read it. It was the perfect card from me to my dad. Inside it says: Happy Birthday from that daughter.
3 Luke brought home his scarlet tanager from wood shop. He perches high above my kitchen.
4 On my daily walk in the park I spied a red-winged black bird in a tree and heard its call over and over. This park I've been walking in has a ton of birds. I loved walking through a flock of Canadian geese as they honked warnings at each other back and forth. Didn't move, just made a lot of commotion about me. I'm loving all these spring birds!.
5 Movies have been adding color to my weeks. Last night I saw In Bruges. Very good. I have two foreign films waiting for me to watch and review for the weekend. We've had free movie channels a lot lately because - and I don't mind saying - VERIZON OVERCHARGES US EVERY SINGLE MONTH, several hundred dollars so far. So my Stanley - analyzing, critical Stanley - catches the overcharges, calls them and forces them to give us free movie channels for his trouble. Anyway, I cannot tell you how many times I've seen Juno, Chocolat and Darjeeling Limited. I love ALL of the characters in each of these movies. Not only that, I now know all of their lines.
