Here I am in the midst of three days off and even though I've got lots of things to do, I've got about zero ambition to do them. Kind of like Tesla here as he hung out next to me on the loveseat last night while we caught up on DVR'd episodes of "The Good Wife" and "The Defenders". Have I ever mentioned that I really like legal shows?
I've made some minor strides towards getting my stuff together for my rapidly upcoming cruise including buying a few new warmer weather duds and even - gasp! - ordering a pair of sandals on-line this morning. Now whether or not I'll keep them once they arrive is another story but a couple of people have told me that if I'm going to be walking around on Caribbean beaches taking pictures then sandals are in order. Truth be told, I figured if I just took my shoes off and walked barefoot, you wouldn't know where the white sand ended and my legs began!
When I woke up this morning I stayed in bed for a little while debating whether or not to take my laptop with me on my adventure. Part of me says "take it, you can edit pictures even if you can't go on-line" and the other part of me says "leave it home and forget about it for a week!" For now I've convened a recess so that both parties can prepare further arguments to present to the jury before a final verdict is rendered on the matter!
While watching the weather last night, the weatherman actually said that there was going to be a warm-up later in the week rather than predicting yet another big snow storm. Boy howdy that's welcome news to my ears; I'll be happy with temperatures in the high 30's at this point! Unfortunately, though, he did mention the possibility of a little snow tomorrow as a clipper system came down from Northwest Canada. I've been around long enough to know that those "quick" clipper systems can sometimes drop anchor and dump a lot more snow than was expected so my fingers are crossed this one just passes on by.
If you're looking for something to do this weekend and are at a loss, may I suggest that you go see "The King's Speech" - a most excellent movie. Jamie and I went to go see it last Sunday and it was well worth the cost of admission. Granted, I've always been an admirer of Colin Firth so I may be biased but the rest of the movie was quite well done, too! Even Jamie liked it and she was the youngest one in the theater by quite a stretch!
Oh well, speaking of things to do - I've got them so I'd best go do them. Have a lovely Saturday in your parts of the world no matter what you may find yourself doing ... or not!
