This has been a crazy week and yesterday my body said NO more...I spent the day listening to my body and rested and slept. This is not always the most productive way to spend an absolutely beautiful day but I had to stop and reconsider the alternative if I fail to listen to my body. I did feel better by the end of the day and spent some time continuing my quilting ...I work so darn slow and to be honest I do not know if I will make my deadline. I do find myself unwinding and feeling peaceful when I am hand quilting and this piece is coming along fine ....haste makes waste.
Today we had a slow morning and went to see a delightful movie..."Hope Springs". Anyone who has been married for awhile will find this movie to be entertaining. Merly Streep is awesome but she has always been one of my favorite actresses! Tommy Lee Jones plays a grumpy angry husband that how he is living is just FINE. Steve Carrell does a great job as the $4000 a week in depth counseling session facilitator! Maine is beautiful and even though there are rough edges and a few realities in this movie...I highly recommend seeing this movie. The music sound track is a walk down memory lane. I looked around the theater and realized this is a real MOVIE for couples of a certain age. Thank you Ken!
Then we went to see some golden old friends at Elder Beerman...I worked there part time for 8 years and I do love these people!! Ken found two great ties for the new school year and I found packable skirt for my trip to Tucson next month..great people and great buys!!!
Now the time to have a cup of hot tea or coffee sitting in the porch swing...for porch swing meditations!!
