Stranger than Fiction

So, theres this movie that I've watched a couple of times recently. I adore it:

It's about this guy that is living a mundane life. He hears voices and realizes that an author is writing his life.

Then he meets a girl (Maggie Gyllenhaal , who I love). She's a baker, and he's supposed to be auditing her. The voices are scaring him, so he is trying to change things in his life, to change the story.

Oh and the best scene, he decides he's going to take a chance with her, and he brings her Flours! (cause she's a baker..)

Isn’t that the sweetest thing?!

I love her apartment, and her bakery is really cute.

I love Harold’s weird blue suits and Dustin Hoffman’s character. Emma Thompson plays the neurotic author that’s trying to kill Harold. Love her too.

The ending is the best, and it made me cry, which prompted me to write a post about it ha! I think it’s so underrated. This movie just makes me happy

Almost April

So...DAMN! This year is flying already! I have numerous friends with babies due anytime now. The weather is finally getting to be bearable. I've planned my garden out and started my seeds. I even spent St. Patrick's Day working on the yard and beginning to refinish my deck.

I'm glad winter is over. It was a long hard one. The hardest I can recall in my life. I had strep 3 times, then the flu, then I had 2 panic attacks in VERY public places. Ahh, I can be such a mess!

I start a new job next week. I'm happy I'll have something to do again.

(This is going in random directions)

I saw these very cool pics this morning, of tulips growing in Holland. It made me want to grow a field of monochrome flowers!

I am planting some flowers, including a silver rose bush. I picked it out because it seemed so unusual. As long as I manage not to kill it anytime soon, we'll see how odd they do grow.

I finally had a chance to see Hawk this weekend. That's always nice ha! He works so much that we don't really see each other during the week. I'm hoping with the nicer weather coming we'll have more opportunities to get out and do things. It's been a long boring winter. Our spring projects are about to begin and I can't wait. We've chosen flooring and paint colors for our home remodel. I do most of the work myself, and I think it's the most useful hobby I've ever had. I'm going to tile my bathroom in a month or so, and I'm planning on documenting the overhaul here. Our house is stuck in 1975 and I love the modernization I've done so far. I just wish I had before pics. You guys would die.

I'm talking a wood paneled CEILING in the Master!
I have carpet to rip out and a popcorn ceiling problem I've yet to figure out yet.

But I'm excited :)

Off Day

I had, just the worst day today. I had a second interview for a job and my F'ing car wouldn't start.

I'm trying to not let the never ending Winter bother me, but it is. I am starting to thing I have S.A.D. My Dad has it and I swear I'm turning into a grumpy old guy.


I want to wear sunglasses and sun dresses. (& SPF 75) And I'd like it to be warm enough to get out of the damn house more!!
