quiet weekend - strange dreams

Last week, I discovered the wonders of the "Red Box" our 'second grocery' store has a Red Box in it and so I rented Over the Hedge. That was on Wednesday - strange dreams were had that night. On Friday, I rented Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest. Strange dreams were had that night. Last night we watched Cars weird dreams again. It must be noted that my husband and I rent few videos or go to the theater often. This year, I think three movies were seen by us in the theater. Twice hubby and I saw Dead Man's Chest (okay, I love the movie - it makes me laugh hysterically). and I took C to Cars as her first movie. We seldom rent movies either our list of rentals is maybe four times long as the list of viewing experiences. Maybe my mind is under stimulated.

Saturday was a very quiet day. I piddled around the house, then I took C to the Y and K stayed home with Dad. While at the Y, I finished Blue Like Jazz I won't to a book report for ya'll since I've written extensive quotes from it twice already. While the girls napped, I worked on a few craft projects and hubby added a few decorations to our meager light display. After the girls woke, I ran out and picked up pizza.

Today we worked in nursery at the church. After church, the girls started watching Cars and ate supper, now they are sleeping. Hubby and I napped and now I am here and discovering that the whole world must be just about as quiet as I am. I did somewhere in the midst of all that 'business' start a new book: Memoirs of a Catholic Girlhood by Mary McCarthy. This is different for me and I needed something different - but I might need to lighten up after all that maybe some All Creatures Great and Small would be good.


  1. I have the same problem with watching movies before bed - I dream about them all night. Actually, I get totally over-stimulated and have a terrible time even falling asleep because my mind endlessly replays scenes from the movie.

    My husband and I rent a movie together about once a week, but we almost never watch TV. I guess I'm just not used to all the excitement :)

    Oooh I love Pirates of the Caribbean, I haven't seen Dead Man's Chest, I have been dropping hints for a Christmas present, Hurrah for Jack Sparrow :)

  3. I think I saw Mary McCarthy interviewed on "The Writer's Tale." The book was very interesting, as was the author.

    I have yet to see Dead Man's Chest, but I loved the first one so I am looking forward to seeing this one.

    It's wonderful you had a quiet weekend. Sounds perfect. Mine was rather busy with the church Christmas music program, the choir party and a Stephen Ministry Christmas party all in the same day (Sunday). In retrospect (a few hours anyway), I am glad it was a one -day affair and I can, maybe, settle in and get ready for Christmas now.

    I'm looking forward to your ten (I forget your letter)things you love post. :)

  4. It sounds like you had the kind of weekend I would have loved. But this house is gearing up fora beloved daughter's birthday on Thursday, and then of course His Birthday on Monday so it was a busy little house, and a tired little she. But I also watched Dead Man's Chest, for the first time, 'twas good.

  5. movies always give me weird dreams.. add in being preggo and I'm in a weird la la land every night these days!
