I have been playing with beads. I am going to take few ornaments out tomorrow and decorate the house a little.
On a different note I rented the movie "The Memory Keeper's Daughter". I have been listening to the book on tape and didn't particularly enjoy it although I am half through and things are getting a bit better. The movie is not great. It is not following the book. The dialogues are not great. The actors are doing a good job with a bad script. Why do authors accept to have their story changed so drastically? Money? Fame? Hard to imagine. I also watched "Transsiberian". That was not great either. Pretty hard torture scene. Not OK with me at all. Still waiting for the "Night in Rodanthe"....
Anchorage Movie Festival started yesterday so there is going to be opportunities to go check some interesting shorts and independent movies. I am looking forward to that. Another thing I am looking forward to is Billy Collins new book of poetry "Ballistics". Just got it.
Check out my Banana Bread. I made it in memory of Dewey from the blog "The hidden side of a leaf". It was one of my favorite Book Blog. Dewey passed away last weekend. She had reviewed the Moosewood Cookbook and had given us the recipe of that fantastic Banana Bread. I think that Dewey would have been proud of me.
