Hello, hello! Happy Sunday to ya 😀
I hope you guys are enjoying a wonderful weekend so far, and I hope you’d be willing to help me petition for an extra day between Saturday and Sunday — we could call it Sunterday.
This weekend has been non-stop go, go, go around these parts, and it doesn’t really look like things are planning on slowing down just because today is Sunday (read: a day meant for r&r). The cold front that we’ve been dealing with over the past couple of weeks seems to have taken its claws out of us, so I’ve been taking advantage of the warmer weather and spending a good chunk of my time here:
Oh, and if you’re wondering where I am, I’m the little black speck near the bottom left part of the hill… or so I’m told 😆 And what better way to follow a day on the slopes than by curling up on the couch to watch a good movie? How about braving insane crowds and cramming yourself into a packed theatre to watch a good movie? Okay, so it didn’t have quite as pleasant of an effect, but its was definitely worth it to watch Catching Fire — I liked it so much more than Hunger Games.
But that’s enough rambling from me. I’m due for another busy day, and I’ve got some great links to share with you guys. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
