Tick Tock Tick Tock...the Nice Weather is Going Away...

Here I sit typing while Steve is driving up to the farm. I am staying home to attend Amy's wedding shower tomorrow. Right now it is sunny & in the 60's, but tomorrow....SNOW! Yuck! After a beautiful spring-like week...it is not welcome. Hopefully it is the last of it for the year. Right now it is snowing up at the farm so I hope Steve is having a safe trip. I'm heading out for a walk after I finish this post. Earlier I went out to lunch with Steve & his dad in Sycamore which is on the way for Steve to the farm. His dad seems to be doing good after Hilda's death. He got her ashes the other day and we will be planning a short trip to Canada to scatter her ashes. After that I met my brother to visit my mom at the nursing home where she is recovering from a broken hip. She was in good spirits and has started reading books again which is back to normal for her. The last time I visited she said she just stared out the window all the time & wasn't reading or watching TV.
So tonight it is movie night for me. I'll have to see what is available to rent. Tomorrow after the shower, I am planning on doing a liver cleanse. I'll fill you in on that later. I've done them before and it something almost everyone should do.

Please, please, please if you haven't seen it PLEASE [I am begging here woman :D] rent the movie "UP".

Yes, I realize it is an animated film. BUT it won an Oscar for Best Animated Film and was nominated for Best Picture.

My husband and I [and I know you don't read my blog but you should know I am not sappy/wimpy etc] Watched the movie FOUR times 24 hours. And? I cried everytime. Just a little, but it really is THAT great.

You won't be sorry - and Redbox only costs a buck. If you hate it I will send you a dollar. hee!

Have a nice quiet evening.

I am very interested in hearing about this Liver Cleanse.

Hi SM...I did see "UP", twice. Once alone & once with Steve. Made me cry both times :-). I'll try to get over to your blog more. I rarely leave comments, usually just in too much of a hurry I guess.
Hi Pat..I'll tell you about it over lunch soon. Let me know.

Liver cleanse might be good for me. So sorry about your mom. Am there myself with my dad. And the weather - cold front on its way. And, I'm not at the lake due to a shower tomorrow.

Everything sounded great up until the liver part.

Hi Barb,

I'd like to know more about the liver cleanse too. Beautiful day today, wasn't it? I walked on the lakefront near the aquarium and planetarium. There are some things about Chicago that I will really miss.

btw, your granddaughter is **really** cute.

Sun here today :-) But most of us have been happy for the rain we´ve had a couple of days now and the warm winds comming with it. Last week I had about three feet of snow around me, now it´s about an inch or two :-)
We all long for spring now.

Have a great day now!
Christer.
