Lovely moments in my life this past week…

* Going on a fun dinner-and-a-movie date with my husband on Friday evening (we ate Mexican and saw The Giver)

* Sitting on the deck late one evening last week, even after the cats had gone back inside one by one, and listening to the cicadas, birds, and bats

* Literally cutting and pasting looseleaf pages on which I’d written ideas for the plot of a novel into a composition notebook, for easy flipping and because composition notebooks are just fun 🙂

* Riding with my dad to and from a visitation at a funeral home outside of town: the scenery on the drive was very pretty, and we had a nice time talking about various topics

* Spending extra time on my hair on Sunday, straightening it (which I rarely do) and then enjoying the sleek look of it

    Lovely! Did you like The Giver? I love the book and am horrified by the movie promos. So nice to hear about your lovely moments.

    Thanks for the comments, all!

    Stefanie and Ngan, The Giver was pretty good. I had been wondering how they were going to make it into a movie: basically, they just added a bunch of layers and action to the ending to make it more movie-like. They also added characters, of course. I enjoyed it more than my husband, I think; he hadn’t read the book and couldn’t accept the un-scientific premise of literal collective memory. But as far as the acting, filming, and overall experience, I definitely enjoyed it!
