long way from home

IMG_0771While New England prepared for another storm yesterday, we ate an early dinner on the patio outside of Whole Foods.

Snow??  What snow???

It’s a hard life.

The day began with breakfast at Habanero’s, a local Mexican place with fabulous breakfast tacos. On to the Alamo Drafthouse to see Annialation, starring Natalie Portman.  We hoped it wouldn’t be too scary for Banjo Man but it turned out to be more ridiculous than thrilling.

On to Waterloo Records to load up on new cd’s.  And then across the street to Whole Foods.

There was a plan to walk down Congress to listen to jazz, but Banjo Man decided he had had enough fun for one day.  So we rented a movie, THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE OF EBBING, MISSOURI and stayed home.

I loved it.  The more I think about it today the more I love that movie.  And the theme.  And the characters.

If you’ve seen it, do you agree with me?

Today I am making another giant pan of shepherd’s pie, as requested.  And then a vat of meatballs.  The next few days will require easy meals in the crock pot for whatever time the music stops and we are hungry and tired.  The lines at the local restaurants will be long.  We’ve learned it is easier to eat at home before setting out for Round 2.

My beloved, trusty Kindle Fire  HDX died Saturday, as did the crock pot.  Both were immediately replaced on Sunday.  Odd typos that might crop up in this blog are due to this old dog dealing with new tricks…and an inferior Kindle Fire.  Sigh.

Hopefully the crock pot will be a better purchase.

Sending love to those of you  dealing with the storm…..
