Another weekend flying by. I have not been to a movie in a theater in 2 years (the last Batman). It takes a lot to get me out to the theater and this movie did it. Godzilla! I am a huge Godzilla fan and grew up watching all the monster movies on TV. I loved Godzilla, King King, Rodan, Mothra, Gamera. Yay! Of course, I had to see this with my sis, so we met her, the nieces and my BIL for a Saturday showing.
I tried to get my nieces to look scared and this was the best take:
Good thing they have other talents because they are not thespians…
As a true fan, I have to say the last reboot of Godzilla with
Ferris Bueler Matthew Broderick was horrible and disappointing. However – this reboot? Amazing! I loved it! No silly one-liners, excellent special effects. Just very good. I didn’t really care about the family at all – in fact I kept forgetting their names. But who cares because… Godzilla! Highly recommended.
We all went out to lunch and then it was time for John and I to get in a ride. Not going to waste a nice weekend day! Our original plan was to go to the lake and back.
It was pretty breezy and I was feeling fatigued just from a hard week. Work was pretty bad this week and on top of that I haven’t been sleeping well and I think it just took its toll. After 10 miles, I told John to go on to the lake. I still wanted the miles, but not the hills, so we decided to meet back up again a little later. I went back through the streets. Looking off to the golf course:
You can’t bike on the golf course. Probably a good thing 😀
Hometown Glens Falls and our future home when the never ending closing finally happens:
I love the paint job on this building!
I rode for another 10 miles or so and got a text from John that he was headed towards Coopers Cave and froyo! I headed that way and met up with him on the path and it was time for our treat!
I got a Mexican sundae, which is chocolate and peanut butter (under that whipped cream!) on top of vanilla yogurt. That’s probably my favorite thing to get at Coopers.
We actually got chilly eating this as it was much later than we normally are out riding and was starting to cool off.
My patented shot while biking!
All done! Tired, but still a good ride:
I have another project I am working on. I found something interesting up in the attic of the shop.
So, I got to cleaning it up. It’s quite old, actually. I took off the back to make sure there weren’t any buggies in it before bringing it into the house and found a stamp on the mirror from CD Widman, which is a company in Detroit founded in the 1800s! The mirror itself is beveled and has that funny coating on it to make it the mirror (not sure if that makes sense). This piece has been painted, so it isn’t the original finish. It looks pretty good clean:
This is going to become part of my dresser redo project, which I will talk about at some point when I get a chance. This will be getting a new coat of paint and detailed cleaning (there is paint on the mirror).
Sunday was also more family time! It was my dad’s birthday, so we gathered for ice cream cake!
I can’t believe another work week is upon us. I cannot get everything done on the weekends that I want to do! Note to self: buy a lottery ticket this week.
