Movies: "Clouds of Sils Maria" and "Pride" -- We Recommend Both

Marilyn has a terrible cough, poor thing, but I do think she's getting a little better (thankfully!). We'll see how she's doing in the morning...

As for me, my day started by going to my clinic to get labs. It was supposed to be both blood work and a urine sample, but I was dry and will have to take in the other sample next week (so dehydrated!!!). At least she had NO TROUBLE getting the blood (NONE!!!) -- so I guess I wasn't that dehydrated, after all. (smile)

Sue picked my up well before 9:00 (my appointment was at 9:30). But the woman in front of me was having a TERRIBLE time giving blood, so it took AGES for her to finish up...

After that, Sue and I went to Starbucks in St. Johns and Sue bought for the three of us (we took a London Fog home to Marilyn). Very nice of her!!! In fact, it was very sweet of Sue to take me today, period.

Marilyn and I spent a lot of time lying around today. We both dozed. I read and she watched TV.

I've been re-reading "The Cardinal Sins," by Andrew Greeley -- one of my favorite EVER authors. (Last week I also re-read "The Stand," by Stephen King -- another of my favorite authors.) But last night I started reading "Blanche on the Lam (Blanche White series Book 1)," by Barbara Neely. The book was originally published in 1992, but was just recently re-released. I'm really enjoying it and hope to read more of the series (I'm only about half-way through the book so far).

Marilyn and I watched the movie "Clouds of Sils Maria," a 2014 art film featuring Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart. Really worth seeing. And we watched Showtime's Pride," which is a film about a group of gay activists who work to support the miners of a Welsh village during their strike back in the summer of 1984. (Inspired by a true story.) We LOVED it -- so be sure to watch if you get the chance.

We do love watching movies on TV when we're not feeling well, so that was nice today.

And I did read out loud from our cat book, too (a couple of chapters). We both like that.

The weather here is NASTY. Cold and RAINY! And it's both rainy AND windy tonight! (ugh) It's a perfect day to be inside.

We actually had pot pies for dinner (Marilyn had chicken and I had beef). And we had some cut up melon (honey dew and cantaloupe) and Jello, too.

I'm still not 100%. The damn antibiotic always messes me up. I have to admit that even so, I'm glad I took it! I have no lingering, deep cough. And I avoided laryngitis. So that's a good thing! I just hate the digestive issues. I've had a tummy ache all day long. (sigh)

I think that covers our Saturday...
