You know what I did this morning? Ticked another thing off THE LIST. Now this one has been siting there for just shy of two years. TWO. And I know that because I just looked to see when this post was written. I finally went to the tree farm and purchased 6(!) new trees that were all on sale. My mate Fiona drove me because she is a legitimate gardener and has a trailer. I got 3 silver birches for down near Rob’s studio, a couple of maple’s and a standard crabapple that will go somewhere. Great bargains. Good fun. Good for the soul (but not my shoulder). Now to get planting!
It’s a bit bloody chilly down here today just 12 at the moment. I can see the fire going on later this afternoon and a bottle of something being opened up too. It’s been a shit of a week….I have been in agony with a shoulder injury since Saturday LAST week and nothing much seems to be helping. I’ve had massages, cupping, acupuncture, osteo and it;s only today that I feel a very SLIGHT improvement. And the worst bit? No stickers on my chart this week. Well, one, but that’s it. I want to feel better and get back into it soon. But before then I suspect some wine, rest and a movie on the couch will make things right again.
Speaking of movies, last Friday night Rob and I somehow got sucked into watching Big on TV. Remember that movie from 1988? We got wondering about whether Tom Hanks won an Oscar that year for it, so Rob checked and we saw the list for Oscar movies in 1988 (the 61st Academy Awards). Man, there were some films that year. Have a look at the list:
- Rain Man
- Dangerous Liasons
- Mississippi Burning
- Working Girl
- The Accidental Tourist
- A Fish called Wanda
- The Accused
- Gorillas in the Mist
- Bull Durham
- Die Hard
- Who Framed Roger Rabbit
- Coming to America
Can you believe ALL of them? In one year? What a year! Good times 1988, good times.
I quite liked the look of this app I saw this week. You type into the recipe builder 4 ingredients that you have in your fridge/cupboard and it comes up with a recipe for you. Not bad for busy people when inspiration can lack at the end of the day. I read about it here.
It’s kids only day over at Temple & Webster today and if you follow this link and sign up (for new members only) you get $15 credit to spend. I had to stop myself from receiving Temple & Webster emails a while ago because it was too dangerous, but there are always good bargains to be had and especially so if you are looking for things for kids. Onto it.
I’ve got a pretty quiet weekend ahead of me this weekend. Rob has gone away with his brother fishing for the weekend so I am flying solo. That means as much time as possible on the couch watching endless movies on Apple TV. It’s also Yabbie Day on Sunday so that means a morning out in the creek attempting to find another one like I did last year. Still so proud of that!
Planted a tree lately?
Any other years in contention for the BEST year of films ever?
What movie should I watch this weekend?
Got any yabbie catching tips?
Happy weekend friends!
