le busy morning????
(Gary and Emily, the chubby 15 year old kitten)
Mmmm. One post but much to say I think.
I just loaded a bunch of items into a glaze firing and started it, but working backwards, somewhat eventful weekend.
We went to a movie matinee yesterday of 'Wendy and Lucy' about a homeless young woman who loses her dog. Seemed like the absolute saddest movie I have ever seen, despite the fact that both the dog and woman at the end are basically OK. But maaaan...it was sad. The actress Michelle Williams, who is pretty darn sad and stressed out here, was Heath Ledger's girlfriend, and I think that in her personal life she had a lot in the last year or 2 to make her SAD alright. A+ movie. Then we come home and walk OUR sweet dogs, and watch a video of 'The Savages' about 2 adult siblings taking care of the father who had never taken care of them. Its about the brother and sister coming together, and it deserves an A+ and THANKS BE TO GOD although it is a sad movie it has a happyish ending. A+. As we get into our 40s and our parents into their late 70s and 80s.....well, anyway.
Then, as happens 3-4 times a year, I was wide awake late and finished my book---I always go to bed early, not last night, up to 1-2. I was reading 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' by Stieg Larsson. A+ mystery, very disturbing but exciting.
Here are a pair of very true to life haikus, written over the morning coffee pot.
