Bright and Sunny Here. How's it in Your Neck of the Woods?

Awesome day to move around in the sunshine, let me tell you.
And my camera, which is PMSing, allowed me to take 4 pictures today.
Thank you camera.
Three other things I'm thankful for:
1. Summer house swap opportunity. I watched The Holiday tonight (Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet swap houses and find true love. ) And I'm getting excited about my upcoming trip.
2. I have seasons 3 and 4 of Reba to watch when I get bored this week.
3. I had a really good evening with Clint yesterday. We both loved Avatar. "Are you going to blog a movie review, mom?" I'm kinda thrilled that he'd think I have anything to say about a movie that blew us away with it's special effects. Because, truth be told, and that's what this blog is all about - the truth, Clint is far more qualified to blog about the wow factor, whilst I can discuss at length the crushability of the star, Sam Worthington. Am I right? Cute, no?

I will say this, thought. The first half, is pure candy for your eyes. I LOVED the creatures, the jungle, the wildlife, the colors, the 3-Dness of it all. Have you ever watched the Planet Earth DVD's on BluRay/HD? I think some of those obscure fishes and bugses are what inspired James Cameron when he made this movie. I kept sighing as one beautiful scene flowed into another. Spectacular.
Unfortunately, for me, the story was a little weak. But that's just me. You will probably really like it. And, for me, it was a little long. Three hours is a little show-offy, I thought. He had a captive audience so he was going to keep us there, pounding us with his brilliance. He coulda tightened up the story quite abit and made it 145 minutes, in my humble opinion.

But the 3-D factor? Mind blowing.
Go see it.
