Things That Are Making Me Happy
I know you are all sorry and feel bad for me so give me the positives in your life and that will buoy me.
THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN was so-so. A bit too lethargic for a movie about a man who craved adventure. But well-meaning and good to see some faces I don't see enough. THE HATE U GIVE was terrific if you can bear to be reminded of how racist we are in this world. The events of this week sicken me. And we have officially become inured to it, I think. No talk about gun control.
Good friends who got us out to lunch and dinner a few times this week. If we didn't have friends....
Bought a new Christmas Tree, which looks alarmingly big. The place got it here in two days when I expected two weeks at least. The box sits in my living room waiting to be unloaded.
And I am truly grateful for the ability to do so much shopping online. Sometimes I make a mistake (slippers that were too small) but on the whole, it works out well. And most places are so good about returns now. Our brave new world.
Cannot settle into a book. But I keep buying or borrowing them.
What about you?
