I'm a weather wimp

It wasn't even raining, much less sleeting. But the temperature dropped into the lower forties, and that was just too darned cold to work outside, especially in water.

So I fooled around online instead. I played a game of Scrabble with canuckgirl, until Flar was done with a business call. We were going to go to a movie together. He'd even talked to Gaucha last night instead of his usual time tonight, to make it possible. Then neither of us liked the choices that were after 7:30 enough to leave the house. So Flar made Kung Pao chicken, and we watched Kate and Leopold at home.

We figured out a perfect formula for a date movie: romantic time travel comedy. Flar was mediocre on the concept of a Meg Ryan flick, and Critter was planning to flee upstairs. When I read on the cover that it involved time travel, they were both interested.

It was a really fun movie. I really enjoyed it, and so did Flar and Critter. I especially enjoyed learning the valet's name. :)

And now it's time for bed. I had trouble getting to sleep last night, because I was coughing. Tonight I'll take a cough drop as soon as I turn out the light.

    Monday - Pink
    Tuesday - Orange
    Wednesday - Yellow
