this unusual real winter

 More rain today. There is a promise of Spring but not today. I will pick up my friend Ginger and head some place, but no party today. I still miss Robin Williams, by the way.

more rain, popcorn and this movie

 I was not really looking forward to The Whale, but of course I was enthralled yesterday as I watched Best Actor Brendan Fraser play the obese professor. This film covers way more than just sad fat guy topics and yes, I'm so glad I spent Sunday afternoon in front of the TV with my box of Kleenex®.

April book club selection

 Well, this stock photo of Lessons in Chemistry says Large Print, but thankfully not necessary because the type face in the regular old hard back is easy to read. Not always the case, alas. Anyway, this is a VERY good novel and I certainly recommend it and I am enjoying it immensely. More rain on hand today and next week, so I am happy for a good book, needless to say.

connections and conversations and FOOD

 Despite Dodger Doug's 0% Irish button, we all were all a little bit Irish last night for our fun celebration with corned beef and all the trimmings. Guests brought food and helped me clean up and today I just put stuff back where it belongs and maybe nap a bit after a neighborhood walk.

Tonight's the night

 Robert's is still a cash-only little hole in the wall on Bryant Street where we buy our corned beef. Their main business is restaurants and fire houses, but Husbando used to enjoy talking to the butchers and the place is filled with memories for me. Tonight there will be eight people here (gulp), but I have all the notes and I think everything will be a-ok. Plus how difficult is it to boil a bunch of stuff? Stay tuned...

Sunshine! Outdoor lunch!

 The Book Club met at the Magic Flute yesterday and we talked of many things, even about the book, every once in awhile. I like being forced to read things that I normally would miss and I like these women who are all flaming liberals, as am I. But you already know that...

a perfect rainy day film

 Women Talking was such a powerful movie. I watched it yesterday afternoon as the rain pelted the world and the wind howled. A bowl of popcorn, a super soft cat and three choices for these women trying to find their way out of a horrible situation.
