Thunder rumbled through, this morning. Our last warm day and I still am trying to finish those outside chores. Yesterday, despite my good intentions nothing on the list, MY LIST got done. Instead I was doing WHAT? Honestly, I know I was busy but for the life of me I can hardly remember what I did or have anything notable to show for it.
I did manage to put some layers on three different art projects, up in the studio while I was helping Zeus hang Christmas wreaths on the outside of the barn walls. It's not the way I like to work but I had to seize the moment.
Zeus finished putting glass block in this rather large finished hole we had in the front room wall.
Originally, we thought we would do something exciting. Well, to be truthful we really didn't have a clue what we were going to do, maybe stained glass? For nine years there remained an opening between the living room and the masterbath. Yeah, well, it made it interesting when company came to stay. My quilt buddies, when they came for quilt camp, thought it was strange but something that would never bother a boy.
It looks wonderful now. Zeus did a marvelous job. I'll take a picture later and show you. It looks very Art Deco and it fits with the house. Frank Lloyd Wright would be proud, let's in lots of natural light into an interior bathroom.
Clean up didn't take as long as I thought it would. I get a little stressed out when Zeus starts in on a project. He does great work but worrying about making a mess isn't something that even registers on his radar.
I gave the John Lennon movie, on PBS, Lennon Naked, a shot last night. Frankly, I really didn't know that much about him except for his relationship to the Beatles and Yoko. From the hour that I watched I still don't think much of him, as a person. Didn't quite like him, at all. The show concentrated on him, not his music but his relationships with people, his wife, son, press, world and of course Yoko. There is another part on tonight but I think I can find something else to do with my time. This little bit of history really doesn't need to be in my brainbank.
Zeus and I saw the third movie, in the series, called The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest. Good movie. Again, all three movies were good because they were foreign, unknown, to me actors and scenery. But, honestly, I would tell people to read the books, in this case there is so much wonderful information, in those books that had to be cut or adjusted for the movie. You'll get much more enjoyment from the books.
Mary and her friend saw the new Harry Potter. My little wild child, now a mother was upset because 10 year old kids and under, were in the theater and THIS movie was violent, she said. Good vs BAD and the BAD IS BAD. She said SHE would see is again, the theater was so crowded when she and her friend got there they had to sit in the second row. Not the best row for viewing.
But, she would advise parents to be careful about taking some kids and some ages to see it. As she put it reading the book, is one thing, you determine how violent you want the image in your mind but when it's on the big screen and it's somebody else's idea it can be too much.
I absolutely, ABSOLUTELY have to get to my TO DO list. With snow in the forecast for Wednesday I can't put this off any longer. Oh my.
