May 26th – 28th

Days 147 – 149 — Sunday — cleaned up my writing desk with the thought of actually writing something.  Later, went to see The Great Gatsby with my daughter-in-law.  A wonderful adaptation of the story.  Baz Luhrman is a genius and Leonardo is probably the best Gatsby ever.  (Never bought Jack Nicholson in that role.)  Nice to get out with Jenn, even if it was only for a couple of hours.

Monday — back to work.  Cloudy, rainy, a perfect day to have to go to a bargaining meeting until 9 p.m.  Want to say it was productive, but. . .

Tuesday — another meeting right after work.  Thankfully I was home by six o’clock.  Scarfed down some supper, did a few email-y things, and then outside to work in the yard until 9 o’clock.  I was so happy I got some time outside.  I’m looking at my gardens and thinking how slow things are coming.  I don’t want to start fretting about not getting my baskets and planters done up, but I am beginning to.  Hopefully, I’ll find some time next week to get to the greenhouse and buy some plants.  In the meantime, I’ll just keep puttering away in the yard.

    I was debating going to see Great Gatsby. Loved Moulin Rouge, but wasn’t sure if I’d like the style of his new film. Good to know you liked it.

      I really liked it. If you like his Romeo and Juliet, you’ll probably enjoy this film. And Leo — he just keeps getting better. Tobey Maguire is exactly what you’d envision for Nick. It’s a very stylish film, and a bit long — 2 and a half hours — but I didn’t seem to notice the time, so that’s a plus.

    Having recently read The Great Gatsby, I’m interested to see the film. Have fun in the garden.
