Was a slow, relaxing, mostly wasted weekend. Lots of reading, walking and a some chores, not much else.
I did go see Thor on Sunday with Talks to Owls. I enjoyed it thoroughly. My only complaints were that his transformation was a little abrupt and barely shown and I think Alexander Skarsgård should have played Loki to up the eye candy and keep me even more amused. The actor playing Loki was too whiny and not nearly mischievous enough. I feel that Skarsgård could have done a much better job at being trickstery. Overall worth the price of admission though. I forget how much I like going to the movies. I wish the good theater by my house would reopen. Stupid flood damage keeping me from movies for more than a year.
I also read the Hunger Games trilogy. A fast but riveting read. Highly recommended. Like I can’t stop thinking about it and harassing my friends to read it so they will talk to me about it.
And I didn’t touch any of sewing projects I have around the house in various states of doneness, but I did make a little felt book for my embroidery needles out of some scrap denim and silk I had lying around. I’m pretty pleased with it. And Talks to Owls just got me these owl scissors so I’m be all ready to get embroidering!
