What To See and How To Get There

"People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character." - Ralph Waldo Emerson


We had a lovely, relaxed weekend. Friday night we dined with friends at the Caley Sample Room. Saturday I made fried matzo for breakfast, then worked the morning away so that we would have time to see the film Genova at the Filmhouse early that evening. Our friends Scotty and Rebecca came over later for dinner and then our high-brow taste in film was lavished on Nacho Libre.

Sunday morning Matthew and I visited Palmerston Place Church. The church is orthodox and the people were friendly. (And the building was gorgeous -- built as a replica to some church in France -- just beautiful). We'll return!

We also enjoyed beautiful weather yesterday afternoon and today. We've spent as much time as possible outside! On an afternoon walk yesterday we sauntered through several charity book shops and made several amazing finds. As we didn't have spare change on us, we had to go around and pick up our finds this afternoon. I picked up a copy of Touring Britain and Ireland for 50 p. Matt picked up a Karl Barth book for 50p, a Biden, and several Brunner books. I wish I could tell you that they were all 50 p -- but alas, I cannot. But finding great used books makes our world a very, very happy one!

I just finished up a long work day ... contract work with the firm in the US, instructing duties for Liberty, drafting a contract for a Nashville client ..... and now we're about to watch a BBC show on a family that inherited a castle and estate ~ and ~ a $6 million tax bill. Interesting!
