  10. May we both have a weekend full of fun and relaxation :).

      I hope you did. we had a great weekend!

      • Yes, ours was wonderful too. We went to see World War Z on Friday night which is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time (very frightening concept) and basically spent the rest of the weekend outside reading and working on my tan :). I am feeling very relaxed this morning. Are you still enjoying awesome weather? It was hot and sunny here all weekend, and it is going to be an extremely hot and humid this week. I am loving it :).

      • TBM says:

        We are in the midst of a London heatwave. Miles and Att are not happy. Not one bit. I’ve seen the ad for the movie, but haven’t watched it yet. I spent much of the weekend outside, but no tan. Unless you count pink. In the winter I’m pale and in the summer I’m pink. Never could tan that well.

      • Well, we all have to watch out for those UV rays, so I did make sure that I put on some sunscreen part way through the day, but I am very lucky that I tan nicely. You should see Mike!! He’s so dark you would swear he was native Indian, but then he works outside in the sun every day :).

        I am so happy you are getting some nice weather :). I hope you spent some time reading outside! I am sitting outside right now because our house is really hot and stuffy. You should hear the birds. It sounds like I’m sitting in the middle of the rain forest or something – oh, how I wish I could stay home! There’s nothing better than listening to the birds singing in the morning. Mike put a patio door from our bedroom out to the deck and most nights we sleep with it open, so every morning I get to wake up to the sound of the birds singing. Good thing I’m a morning person right?

        As for World War Z, you should definitely try and see it. I was very impressed, and it sure stays with you afterwards and makes you think. I’m reading the book right now too but am finding it a tough go. It is written as a bunch of survivors’ accounts, and just when you are getting into one story it switches to another. This is one of the rare occasion where I definitely liked the movie far better than the book.

      • TBM says:

        I love hearing the birds in the morning, but I’m not much of a morning person so I wish they’d wait until 8 am. Interesting that you prefer the movie, but from the sounds of the book it sounds like it moves on too quickly from each story. that can be aggravating. I always want to know more.
