Lay low and chill

That's pretty much me this weekend. I am tired from the head cold or other sinus hell I've had all week. Feeling better but not wanting to make it worse. MrB is headed down to Waterloo Records to see Rosanne Cash at her free show there this morning. That's a sweet deal (and usually includes free beer to boot). Then he's going to Eco-Wise for some accent color paint to put on the tray table that goes with this bench. We adopted the pair of them this summer off the side of the road on bulk trash day, and now they are being spiffied up some. We went with intense green and orange instead of "aubergine" as originally planned.

It got to a hard freeze last night (goodbye mosquitoes) so we are in our dead of winter here - all stocked up with firelogs and DVDs from the library (mostly documentaries) and I'm working my way through The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. I love the Library.

Oh how do you like Lovely Bones? I read it a few years ago and it stuck with me for months. I'm curious about the movie but I'm always afraid it won't be as good. But it's been a while since I read it, so maybe it will still thrill.

Firelogs? For what, when it gets down to like, oh, 40?!

MM: 40 deg is what they call "bitter cold" around here. ;-)

As for Lovely Bones (the book), I thought it was pretty good but did not flip out over it. I really am curious to see the movie. I love Peter Jackson but he can screw stuff up too. We will wait for DVD.
