Sundays are quickly becoming my favorite day of the week. Time to rest. Time to refill your well for what's to come. Time for the things you don't get to do the other six days. Somehow we managed to stuff some of my favorite things into one day...
A good book: I'm on chapter 7 of Ransome's Honor by Kaye Dacus. This is such a refreshing book as it deals with the British Royal Navy and has all the romance my favorite Horatio Hornblower series is missing. Go, Kaye! Can't wait for the next two - Ransome's Crossing and Ransome's Quest.
An amazing movie: Randy and I went to the matinee
of Robin Hood. I can't remember when I last saw a movie at the theater. This one reminded me of why I don't write medieval fiction. Lots of bloodshed and flying arrows and dirt and intimidation and raw living that makes you shudder. I loved it. And Russell Crowe. Oh. My. Word. Till now I've been immune to his charms but in this movie he had some irrisistible character qualities that had me wishing I was Maid Marian (who is no maid, BTW). In this role he is a true hero - loyal, brave, intelligent, intense, self-deprecating, capable, romantic, and of few words. Sigh. Move over William Wallace/Mel Gibson:)
A wonderful dinner (or supper as we say in the south): Last but not least, we went to dinner at Bella Italia on Port Angeles's First Street. You know, the restaurant where Edward and Bella had a tete-a-tete in the Twilight zone. Actually, I've never read the books, just pointed tourists to Forks, Washington.
Here's hoping you had a wonderful weekend, too.
