We have gone on long walks with the dog:
We have found good deals on dessert plates - something we really needed after having used somewhat broken secondhand ones for more than 3 years. We went to Anthropologie to have a look and check this out! They had llama plates on sale for only 3.50$ each. #llamalove
I love having things that makes me happy, when I use them and these plates are most definitely in this category.
We have been going out for breakfast and dinners. I dragged Kristian along to hopcat where they had more than 100 beers to choose from. And even better, they sell them in small tasting samples so you don’t have to confine yourself to just one one. I had salted caramel porter and Belgian beer tasting like “althea bolcher” (a Danish hard candy with an orangy flavor that I used to hate as a child but kind of like now).
And after that we only had to skip across the street to be right at Michigan Theater. Here it is from the top of the parking garage:
It is an old theater with those movies that usually don’t make it to the big cinema complexes full of teens. We had tickets for “The shape of water” and I was blown away by everything in there. The golden ceilings, the red velvet chairs, and the live organ music during the commercials. Seriously a guy walked in and starting playing in the little organ up front:
The film was one of the best I have seen in a long time. Please go see for yourself if you have the chance!
We were sitting next to a couple of college kids and they were audibly gasping when one of the main characters - a power tripping psychopath - gave racists comments to one of his employees, or when there was that kind of beautiful artistic nudity involving non-surgery-modified and quite real human bodies .in some scenes. They have obviously not watched non-Hollywood movies before🙄
And now it is Sunday afternoon. The kids will be home in a few hours and Kristian and I are not quite ready for it yet. We have learned though that we cannot keep blaming the kids for always being late for church Sunday morning..... ahem......
