Anyone feeling the winter chill?

We're not, that's for sure. Look what we did today....
And I have to say, I really enjoyed it. The boys and I headed to the beach while Tommy stayed to host an open house. That went well, we had 8 couples come look at it today. I hope someone buys it soon - all this keeping it clean and tidy is killing me!!!
I can't go ANOTHER post without showing some knitting. So here it is. The completed Noro Kureyon Log Cabin blanket. Only, as you can see, it's not entirely finished. Gotta weave in all those ends and block it. It's gonna have a bath, then into the washing machine for a spin cycle. I'm terrified. Imagine if I felt it!

As we sit here watching the Golden Globes, I'm thinking about all the really great movies I've seen recently.

Just after Christmas it was The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. After which I cried (like a freaking baby) for half an hour. Possible my new favourite film ever, knocking Shallow Hal off the top spot. Hmm, maybe I need categories.

Friday night we saw Marley and Me. My husband who, to put it mildly, is NOT an animal person, cried. For a dog! When we got home we googled hypoallergenic cats and dogs. Maybe Matt and I have hope after all :0)

Last night, I saw Doubt. I had no doubt, but those last 10 seconds sure were interesting.

Last weekend, the boys and I saw the Tale of Desperaux. Matt was enthralled with the mouse with the ears. What a cute movie. You wouldn't believe the amount of people who come into Barnes & Noble asking for a desperaux toy!

Other movies I'd really like to see include Valkyrie, Gran Torino, The Reader and I can't wait for Revolutionary Road to come out. So many movies so little time.

Hope y'all had a great weekend :0)

Well the sand is white like snow! Ha ha!!!

Just make sure you wash the blanket in cold water before you spin it. It's gorgeous!

I dunno about Valkryie. What's worse than a Tom Cruise movie? A Nazi Tom Cruise movie.

You should see Bedtime Stories! Totally cute, and didn't insult my intelligence the way Adam Sandler usually does.
