Is it Friday yet?

I rented 3 movies the other night, The Chronicles of Narnia, War of the Worlds and Just Friends. They were all much better than I expected.
Loved the the whole visual of Narnia, and i’ve always loved the story. It really was made better than I expected.
War of the Worlds, well I’m not a Cruise fan, but it was pretty good. I kinda wondered about a few things though, like, with so many people getting killed, how this family is just lucky enough to be seperated and yet they all make it, and, I must have missed the reason Cruise’s character decides he has to kill Tim Robbin’s character. Why not just leave? Maybe I missed something?
Just Friends was really cute. I’m a big Ryan Reynolds fan, have been since 2 guys and a girl. I like the characters he plays, the smartass, funny, quips, and who could resist those dark brown eyes? Yes, yes I drooled when I saw how bulked up he got for the last Blade movie.
In this one he plays a Man who was fat in high school and in love with his best friend (a popular girl). He ends up back at home after avoiding it for 10 years, (he’s successful, thin, and handsome) to find he’s still in love with her. It’s a comedy, and has some funny, quirky characters. Anna Faris, plays a combination Paris Hilton, Ashley Simpson character that’s whacked.
 
 
Tuesday Dell sent a guy to replace the hard drive on this new computer. I spent yesterday doing updates, upgrades, dl’s, and, being booted over and over again, and still having problems. Their customer service people are gonna hate taking my calls, but, hey!
 
My daughter hit another home run in her game on tuesday. She’s a freshman and the Varsity Team has asked her to play. Not only play but start! She’s pretty excited, I’m pretty proud of her!
 
We are supposed to get up to 70 something today. I’m looking forward to doing some pruning and working on my Bonsai. Oops that reminds me, I have a Blue Spruce that’s growing too close to the house, it’s about 5 ft tall (planted by the previous owners), I told my brother Mike that he could have it. I better call and have him come get it before it’s too late to transplant.
 
I have big plans for my yard and garden this year. How about you? BIG HUGS, Steph
Now i’m off to go wander the fields around here. My daughter’s cat, Kimi, is 11 yrs old and a hunter, she lives for it. Problem is she hasn’t come home for 4 days now, and she usually does. I have that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach, and I’m not ready to acknowledge it or accept it, so, I’ll go tresspass and call for her.

    GAARRRR!  I am stuck in an apt with a 7 by 7 cement patio while 2.2 lovely acres of my real home goes unplanted and unflowered and unseen (at least by me).  I gotta get outta here!  I did get a bonsai started last weekend.  If I keep reading about your gardening, I may revert to serial killing and that never looks good to the parole board.  
    Not sure I can stomach TCruise in anything – I am hoping silent birth extends for a few more years…

    OH!!!!!  I hope you find Kimi!!!!!!   I didn\’t go to Disneyland today cause my broken foot isn\’t quite healed yet and I wasn\’t ready for all that walking. You know that Disneyland is ALL about walking!!   Now, I said it before and I\’ll say it again, that daughter of yours is gonna get her a college scholarship  (and tell that hubby of yours to quit harassing her coaches!!).  BTW, I\’ll have some bonsai pots for you soon!

    I do hope you find Kimi.  I live in an apartment and I\’ve tried getting some plants for my lanai, but it all died.  I either water too much or I just forget to water them…..either way it died.  So I decided to not buy anymore plants and put it through a torturous death.  Take it easy!

    Hope you find your cat ok
    Have a good day

    is this the new puter? – OH NO!
    And I also believe that Rascal Under the Spruce is laying eggs.  isnt that an egg?
    you could be rich –  leave the spruce.

    congrats to the daughter, I love it when kids excel in sports!

    My garden is already suffering from neglect. sigh

    That Kimi is a beautiful cat. Is Molly a manx by chance? I had a manx that was marked like Molly – her name was Tilly — she hated my guts.
