Venus

Movies and More

So, our weekend storm has quieted down for the moment. Friday was a nightmare, with winds up to 69mph and parts of the city flooded and lots of fallen or damaged trees. We were spared all but a couple of tree problems— a small lilac tree with shallow roots that went down (which I'll replant and stake up like the relentless optimist I am) and a 2-foot split-away of a major branch on one of the Modesto ashes. Which needs the tree-man to visit really soon.

We'd planned to take the kids out to spend Xmas gift-card money and go to Enchanted on Friday, but it wasn't until about 3pm that I realized that the storm had settled down enough to make that possible. So the movie part came through. And my husband and I had Wednesday off together, and a Saturday night date, so there was much movie-ing.
