It was a pretty lackluster weekend, in fact we didn't even get in the car to go anywhere. We walked to brunch on Saturday and visited the new spa they opened nearby. There, I bought spouse his birthday present. On our way over there, spouse said, "You're not going to buy my present in front of me, are you?" And I said, "Of course, that's how you'll get exactly what you want." So he ordered a 90 minute massage and a manicure for his mini spa day on his birthday in two weeks. I told the nice lady that I wanted to prepay for his birthday and she gave me my total, "$127.00" Instantly Serge said, "That's not ALL you're getting me." It made me laugh and want to smack him at the same time. The lady giggled.
I finished the book I've been reading for the past six weeks - Forests of the Heart by Charles de Lint. It took me a long time to read it because the print is so small and the first third of the book is (yawn) character development. The rest of the book is cool as the characters slip in and out of this world and "myth time". Anyway, since I finished it, it was time to dig out my list that I got from all of you and head to the library. I picked up The Phantom Tollbooth and Red Leaves. Just reading the Phantom Tollbooth in the metro on the way home got me hooked. The print is very large on the pages in this book, so I'll probably finish it within the week.
Last night we had martinis and cheese fondue. I tried to stay awake for the Simpsons treehouse of horror, but fell asleep watching. I wonder if it was good.
