Yesterday was a day of enjoying appetizers and a drink at a nearby restaurant, and then heading to the movies. I saw Home Again, with Reese Witherspoon…and it wasn’t mind-blowing, but there were pretty scenes, like the homes of the characters.
While munching and drinking, though, I started reading my NetGalley review book The Best Kind of People, by Zoe Whittall, a story that tells about a local schoolteacher who is arrested, leaving his family to wrestle with the possibility of his guilt, in this exquisite novel about loyalty, truth, and happiness.
I didn’t get far into the book, just far enough to watch the teacher be arrested…and I was eager to keep going, but the movie was starting.
Then when I left the theater, I had to go to the grocery store. At home, I put away my goodies and turned on Netflix to continue watching Nurse Jackie. I loved that series when I saw it on Showtime, and it was great seeing it again.
Then my Blu-Ray player froze. I tried rebooting it, but nothing.
This morning I went online and tried a few other things, like unplugging everything…and it’s back. Whew! Meanwhile, I finished watching some episodes last night by hooking my laptop up to my bedroom TV. And contemplated having to do that from here on out…because I’m not buying another Blu-Ray.
My next purchase will be a Smart TV, so I don’t have to deal with these individual electronics.
So…I am glad it is working again, as I’m not ready for that purchase. But it was cozy watching in my bedroom…once I moved the laptop and hooked everything up. My bedroom has been completely rearranged since I took this photo (below), but the idea of it is the same.
So…the weekend is over and a new week looms. Today is September 11, so many people are remembering that day sixteen years ago. So many things have happened in the world since then…and not so many good things. But we do have to go on.
What does your week look like? What about your weekend?
