Rainy Monday

It's raining. It rained ALL day yesterday and continued all night and it is still raining! January thaw anyone? The snow is almost all gone. Just ugly piles of dirty looking stuff by the streets. It is supposed to get colder with snow later today and tomorrow. Regular winter weather!

Chiara's sweater is finished and will go in the mail today. So, as it was finished on her birthday I didn't completely miss the date.

We had a movie weekend. For some reason, we haven't watched any movies for a long time maybe because nothing appealed to us. And now there seems to be an abundance of riches on HBO and pay-per-view.

On DH's ROMEO's (Retired Old Men Eating Out) night I watched "He's Just Not That Into You" which was an okay chick flick, just meant for a weeknight viewing alone.

On Friday night, I put on Julie and Julia which was as absolutely adorable as I had been lead to believe. I'm reading the book at the moment and will compare the two when I finish it.

Saturday night we watched Inglorious Basterds which is a typical Quentin Tarantino film, cartoonish yet somehow oddly compelling. I loved the "Aldo Ray" reference and the spaghettii western type music. Christoph Waltz was excellent as the evil Nazi. Be warned, subtitles (and they move pretty fast) don't allow for much knitting!

Can you see the hawk in the tree? We have multiple bird feeders, as do our neighbors. So our backyards are often the hunting grounds for hungry predators. They are magnificent aren't they!
