How’s the weather?
As I type this on Saturday, it’s raining, and it has been all day. But it looks like we’ll clear up for the early part of the week and even see some sunshine.
After a slow start, I devoured Kiss Her Once for Me by Alison Cochrun. I wasn’t sure I wanted as much angst as the main character, Ellie, displayed in the first few scenes. This book was recommended by a friend, so I stuck it out.
I was hooked when we got ourselves into a modern marriage of convenience plot. And then, that plot took a twist. So much fun! Much of the book is set during the Christmas season so we get cookies and tree decorations and snow — perfect for this time of year.
What are you watching?
Our favorite movie this week was Moving On (2023), which was recently released on DVD. Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda star in a revenge plot against the widower of their recently deceased friend. This is obviously a dark comedy. We don’t always go for that, but this one worked for us. It’s so great to see movies with older characters.
What are you doing?
We celebrated the holiday with a family gathering today, our first since 2019. There have been sad and happy changes in the family since then, so everything was different about this gathering — new hosts, new location, new day, new time-of-day. We had a beautiful tree, good food, and fun presents for the little ones. Before today, I’d barely met the two youngest children, so it was fun to reconnect.
How are you this fine Sunday?
