Waking up to a rainbow outside has to be a sign of a start to a great day. It’s the day to appreciate dad. My husband and I won’t have a chance to visit our parents this year, although we are fortunate to celebrate with our children in the new home.
It finally rained and the best thing to do when it rains is my husband’s favorite activity, which is go to the movies. He goes to the theater almost every weekend (mostly solo) and the movies aren’t even good most of the time! I think he goes just for a story. We saw the movie Tag which is about grownups who continue to play a game of tag every year in the month of May in an effort to remain youthful. They quote Benjamin Franklin:
“We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing!”
Theaters have really changed! The aisle widths are larger, seats are over sized and recline. This is a big improvement! I wish the airlines would do the same. Really why bother going to the movies if you are more comfortable at home?
The bar stools came in this week so now we have an excuse to break in the new space with Father’s Day dinner watching the baseball game at the bar. On the menu, hot dogs and hamburgers, potato salad and fruit. For desert, banana pudding, my husband’s favorite!
It still looks pretty bare in the house. Slowly it will get there. I’ve been looking for some art for a prominent niche. For some reason inside the house feels more modern and I’ve been leaning more towards modern decor. I found this mid century modern brutalist nail art by an American artist, Corey Ellis that I think would be perfect. It would go next to the fireplace in the niche. Brutalist from what the Internet says is a period after World War 2 whereby things built were completed with unrefined materials, simplistic in design and built with strength. I really like the idea.
