Then I watched the highly acclaimed August: Osage County. It had Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep and won awards or was at least nominated for awards. I liked it. In parts it felt over-acted. The plot was kinda wacky and I had a hard time connecting the dots of who belonged to who. I'm glad I watched it. I probably wouldn't watch it again.

Movies are important. They make you think about stuff you might not think about. They provide a temporary escape from you life. I've spent so much time watching bad news reports on CNN (seriously DISH and Fox News - get over your pettiness and get me my Fox News back) and it's mentally draining to do the extra research every time I hear a news story that paints conservatives as the reason for everything bad in this world. I must. have. truth!

Then I watched Philomena. This was up for some rewards last year, I can't remember if any of them won but it was a very, very good movie. Basically a young Irish unwed mother gives birth in a convent where she's required to stay and work for four years after the birth and the nuns give her baby up for adoption. It's fifty years later and with the help of a journalist writing a human interest story she attempts to locate her son. It's based on a true story. It takes some unexpected twists and turns because, as we know, truth is always stranger than fiction. I would say probably the best movie I've seen in a long time.

Tonight I'm watching The Other Woman - it's where two mistresses and a wife join forces to bring down the guy who was cheating on all of them. Should be a light hearted chick flick. That's what I'm hoping anyways.
So today was just a cuddle and rest day. I stayed in my fleece lined leggings and a baggy shirt and holy sweatshirt. I have completely conserved every ounce of energy for tomorrow. Pictures in today's blog are me cuddling various fur-babies. Hope you enjoy~! And I hope you're enjoying the increased access to Heather's brain. I'm trying to be a better blogger!
Love and hugs and happy thoughts, y'all!
