Movie 'Adventure' With Adeena and Mark! 

Marilyn and I are just home from seeing "Jurassic World" with our friends Adeena and Mark.

The time is actually 1:30 a.m. (on Monday, August 3). But I wanted this to be my Sunday blog post. (smile)

We had a WONDERFUL time! We promised Mark on Grand Floral Parade day that we'd go see this film with him, and it's nearly two months later -- but we finally went! And this was Adeena's FIRST EVER Jurassic Park movie (if you can imagine that). Marilyn and I were just watching the original movie again yesterday. We've seen the first three dozens of times -- especially one and three (which we really love).

Mark texted to say we 'need more adventures' -- and I think he's right! We really do!

I'm on book three of the "Wayward Pines" series now -- and boy, have things gone to hell! Seriously, the entire series is worth reading, I think. (Though I admit I was annoyed with the direction things took in this book and have done a bunch of skimming -- never a good sign with me! When I'm truly engaged in a book I NEVER skim... But this was about a 'plot gone bad' that suddenly didn't hold my interest. I've stopped skimming again, so we'll see how it goes as I finish it up...

Other than that, it was cooler today and overcast -- a very gray day. With a little bit of rain. We actually drove out in the afternoon and got big hot dogs (brought them home for a yummy dinner), plus shopped at Safeway, where we bought some salad-type stuff and some fruit. No lettuce, as I just can digest it. But I've been craving it like mad! So instead I got cabbage and some other stuff (like celery). We already got baby tomatoes and have been eating those...

I can't think what else to share, so I'll call it good for today!

Glad that you had a nice movie adventure with your friends. Today is the wedding for Bob and Micheal and I am so excited. I am taking Nicole and Madyson with me and I am giving Bob away to Micheal. They are just getting married by a judge in Vancouver. We are going to their home and then to the court house and back to their home for salads on their deck afterward. The big reception is next Saturday at their church. What a lovely event it will all be and I am so proud to be part of it.
