The best part about vacationing is the vacation. The worst part is coming back to a full email box and a slew of things that have to be done. Things more important than blogging, alas. However, I’ll give you a quick rundown of How I Spent My Columbus Day Vacation:
- Went to the auction, and bought a table and chairs, a clock, various garden tools, a sewing desk, coffee table, end table and other sundries. I love the auction. Love it.
- Drove up to Rangeley to see the beautiful trees. Actually a bit late to see the beautiful trees up there in all there glory, but still very pretty.
- Went shopping
- Went on a date with DKC–saw City of Ember, a movie I really enjoyed. DKC and I loved the book, and the film had Bill Murray in it. What’s not to like? Well, the theater had crappy sound that warbled out all the music and made it sound tiny and pitchy, but what can you do? I give the film a good three out of four stars. The scene design alone is worth the price of admission, and the teenage actors did a fantastic job. I thoroughly enjoyed myself (and if you live in the area, the word on the street is that the sound problem has been fixed, so go ahead and go). It’s a great family-friendly movie, although probably a tad scary for the littlest ones. I don’t think TRC would have enjoyed it.
- Cleaned out my garage. It looks like a new room. Honestly. You should have seen how much garbage was hauled away to the dump. A Civic and an Explorer’s worth. Lots.
Anyway–a Fun Time Was Had By All. And now I have to get back to work.
