Seriously? We sat outside on the BLAZING deck for about 10 minutes…at minute 11 we couldn’t take it any more…we couldn’t breathe…the air was thick…the air was heavy…but…we made the three treacherous steps back into the house and into the chilling cooling AC! Whew! Safety! Lemonade! TV!
But seriously I finished 2 books and almost 1/2 of this one…this one is so funny and sweet and perfect for an EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING!
Plus we finally watched Thor…Ragnarok. This movie is said to be the funniest of all the Marvel movies. That tongue in cheek funny that is surprising and refreshing in an over the top fantasy thriller where lots of people get stabbed and beheaded. Oh…and blown up, too! Jeff Goldblum is in this movie…Cate Blanchett…Matt Damon…the director plays the rock guy…this movie is funny…have I overstated funny?…tongue in cheek fast paced funny! Plus I got to stare at Chris Hemsworth for 2 hours…even sometimes when he only had one eye…sigh! Laurel-Rain? Is it worth a try?
Well..in case you have been wondering which comfy Free People Tunic-y thing I bought…I bought all three…they are so cute…I wore the black one with jean leggings to dinner on Saturday night…kind of Capri length jeans…but really you can toss these on with anything…they were on sale but only for a short time! I had to snap them up!
Book business! We are down to the business of books!
