Sunday – it was a nice day – putzing in the back yard – a little housework – Hallmark movies – and “date night” with the Ex.
So my little back yard is mostly a cement slab and a small raised wooden deck with maybe a 2-foot edge along the fences for green stuff. The previous owners of the unit didn’t do much in the way of fostering landscaping so there is one tree of some sort and a rose bush. And weeds. Now that the endless rains of this winter/spring seemed to have stopped, and I have a little free time on weekends, I’ve started working on “greening” a bit. Got a weed wacker to keep the growth down, trimmed the rosebush and the tree, got a Pikaki bush and a Morning Glory vine, and have started nurturing Daichondra seeds to replace the dirt strips around the patio. We’ll see how that works! Aything to take away from the barren-ness.
Ex and I went to see Going In Style (link to trailer) with Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin, Ann Margaret, and Christopher Lloyd. It’s about 3 old guys who after losing their pension fund decide to rob a bank. No spoilers here! Just go see it –
I will be so sad when these incredible actors leave us. No one can bring with them the same class and style. Going In Style is a timely story for older folks that young people won’t get. And even though it’s about robbing a bank, the movie has great and huge heart about the importance of family and of dear old friends, and always looking out for each other.
We followed the movie with sushi and saki at Silver Sake, our favorite neighborhood sushi haunt for an awesome late afternoon/early evening date – perfect for us ol’ Baby Boomers!
Namaste, my universal groovers – here’s to a pleasant weekend.
