It's a beautiful, sunny day out and I feel better than I have in weeks. Let the weekend begin!
I'd say it really began last night. Before I left work, my husband told me that one of our friends wanted to meet us for dinner at our favorite Americanized Chinese restaurant. My husband and I split a gigantic appetizer platter, complete with an open flame for warming our beef-on-a-stick and then split an entree. I was stuffed when we left.
After that, we watched a DVD of The Expendables, which was just crying out to be given the Rifftrax treatment. As I watched it, I kept finding myself saying things like, "The political system on that island is so compromised, it seems unfair to be killing off their entire military." So much for suspension of disbelief.
I wrapped up the evening by finishing The Magicians: A Novel by Lev Grossman. It was my pick for one of my book clubs this month and I chose it based on several positive online reviews I'd read. I found the book interesting and engrossing, but never quite warmed up to the protagonist. However, that doesn't mean I won't read the sequel when it comes out. I'm looking forward to hearing what my fellow book clubbers thought.
Today I'll be participating in a pre-St. Patrick's Day parade with The Animal Rescue Alliance (T.A.R.A.). I don't know if I'll be walking a dog, passing out flyers, etc., but I guess I'll find out. This evening, my husband and I have decided we're going to hang out at home, have burritos for dinner and catch up on our TV watching from last week.
Tomorrow I'm doing my regular volunteer shift taking care of the adoptable cats at Petco, then going to my aunt's birthday brunch with my sister and nephew.
That doesn't even count the housework, work work and other activities I'll be interspersing among the fun stuff.
Have a great weekend! I'll post any good photos I take on Monday.
