I’m heading to Colorado this afternoon! Yay! We are really only going to be there for a little over a day, but I’m still crazy excited.
This is from my last visit a few years ago. My hair was so short!
My all time favorite book is being made into a movie, and I’m just not sure how I feel about it.
a) I’m afraid they will ruin it, although Harrison Ford at least makes that less likely (Han Solo! swoon).
b) I kind of like that my fav book isn’t mainstream, I feel like it gives me character.
c) I don’t want to have to punch anyone who criticizes anything about the story or deal with people who don’t “get it” or who have their own interpretation of the book. I like my interpretation!!
d) The movie is NEVER as good as the book – yes I am one of those people – it might be an amazing movie, I might love the movie, but the book will still always be better. If you only saw the movie, then I know more about the story than you, because you can never fit the full story and all of its subtelties into the movie, you just can’t. **steps off soapbox**
If you need your spirits lifted, watch this video, I can’t wait for the full documentary. The resiliency of art and beauty amazes me. I’m so philosophical today!
I’m not sure what it is about the Hudson River, but the sunsets here are just incredible night after night. Pictures never do it justice and I never get tired of taking them.
Teaching PiYo Strength for the first time Wednesday was a moderate success. The group was small, but luckily my boss is not concerned about that. I was definitely feeling it yesterday, and I hope my students enjoyed it and got a good workout!
I made a potentially life-changing purchase this week:
I know, serious stuff. It’s a sunrise alarm clock and I’ve wanted one forever. I’ll update you once I know whether or not it has actually changed my life (I’m still playing with the settings).
It’s officially cold. I had to bust out the space heater (our landlord hasn’t turned on the heat yet), and I rocked full length leggings at Zumba on Wednesday.
