The last batch of storms passed by us early this morning around 6am, thankfully, nothing happened. Just a lot of rain, from what DH tells me-I slept through it, thanks to our new firm Steinhafels Memory Foam Mattress.
Uses of a Memory Foam Mattress:
- hide under during a tornado
- flotation devise after roof blows off and bedroom fills up with water
- giant sponge for cleaning up rain-soaked carpet
- sleep through storms like a baby
- more cush for the Poodle (Note to self: shop fora Dog-pedic mattress for Igor)
Movie ReviewsShutter Island was GOOD-it was a mind-bender, lots of twists and turns, well worth the extra day to keep and watch it. The first day was free, I had a Redbox coupon, so we didn't mind keeping it another day anyway. DH fell asleep half-way through it-he missed a good movie...owell.
SO interesting to hear about Sophie, she is such a cutie patootie! I have her book, I think you saw it on my blog page as a link to her website ~ DiCaprio didn't fit the bill as a US Marshall, in my humble opinion, but he still played a very compelling role. There were a few older actors I am sure you'll recognize-the names escape me right now, I'm not good with names anyway...but yep, see if it you are into twisty-turny movies-not bad, but a surprise ending, to be sure.
And now, back to our regularly schedule programming-Knitting on the Alaska!
Those storms were too stressful, Igor needs his beauty sleep...
