Relaxing Weekends are Good for the Meg.

For a weekend that was supposed to be rainy all weekend, it was awfully sunny.

Now, I'm not complaining, really, about the sunny weather. I love the warmth and sun.
But I really do wish it would rain a little. Maybe at night? Maybe a nice gentle rain to soak the yard? Oh well.

Friday night, John and I had a nice evening out for dinner and a movie. Dinner was quite yummy--Thai food from a great place around the corner, and we got downtown in plenty of time to see our movie--The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.



We were so disappointed. I'm totally with Roger Ebert who said "This was a wonderful concept spoiled by poor execution". I know that they were going to sanitize the LXG, I mean, you can't rescue a hero from an opium den these days, but man, they just made it boring, with no compelling predictable plots, and not even a whole lot of device to get from one big fight scene to the next. It was sad (and not in an emotional way). I actually took a little nap during it. I shouldn't be able to do that during a good movie. That means I was bored. Oh well.

Saturday, we had a relaxing day, just hanging out around the house, having coffee with our friend Mark, making cables with Gordon (well, the boys did, I cleaned the kitchen, kinda.)
John washed our cars, and I pulled up the peas and replanted for fall. We both got some nice sunshine. Made dinner, then I headed over to snorklet's for a soothing massage (complete with Akira-kitty). She was practicing some polarity energy work, and apparently cats are really attracted to energy work. Being a kitty-mom, it's not at all distracting to have a massage with a cat helping. :)

Sunday, we slept in, then went to root on The Mariners, which is always a fun afternoon. Since it was an afternoon game, we were home by 5, and hooked up with snorklet for dinner and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. What a fun movie!

Looking forward to The Lavender Festival this Friday. Rhonda and I are taking the whole day off to go be girly and frolic in the lavender fields.

But first, the work week...
