Living It Up

   The weather was not as bad as forecast. The morning temperature was -18C but the sun was out so it felt considerably warmer than that as the day progressed. I think the high was -15C. It has clouded over now so that should mean milder temperatures overnight and into tomorrow. That is good news as I am going to the theatre tonight and won't be home until late.

   Earlier this week I went to see the Best Picture movie, "Parasite", and it was as good as its reviews. I think you would describe it as a dark comedy - some fairly hilarious bits, some pretty horrific scenes and a very interesting theme of clashes between the "haves" and "have-nots". I will say no more as it is better to go in with little knowledge of what is to come but I do recommend you see it.

   Yesterday was our wine-tasting club and a merry afternoon it was. There were just 9 of us this time so the wine went a bit further. We tried 5 wines (two whites and three reds) and enjoyed a lovely spread of food as usual. We were all quite jolly by the last bottle but we sobered up before we left with tea or coffee and some yummy pastries. Those driving just had a few mouthfuls of each wine so kept us all on the straight and narrow.

   Today just my usual fitness class in the morning and pickleball in the afternoon. I have had a nap so am ready for my evening out.


  1. Wow - what a gadabout. It all sounds really lovely and I hope the evening out was just as good as the rest.

    1. Sometimes it gets to be too much. I didn't get home until 11:30 last night.

  2. I can't begin to imagine those temperatures. I shiver when it drops to 4C here.

  3. It all depends on being properly dressed for the temperatures.
