The View Is So Delightful

When the weather outside is cold! Not frightful to me, I like it cool.

Not quite the lyrics of a Christmas song, but the view from Alexander Hall on the Princeton Campus is nice. A bit of color hanging on to the warm of the stone and sun.

The makings of a poem right? I will be spending free time this week writing some.

I went on an interview with a new Princeton family to be their personal chef and help manage things. Ahhh to have money for extravagant extras.

We finally went OUT to a movie after watching the Princeton Brass Band perform on Sunday. It was nice walking the streets and the campus around Princeton. Did a little shopping in the local wine store, and window shopping along Nassau Street. Lots of families strolling around, the kids in cute outfits, and looking at Christmas decorations. Almost seemed normal. Yep.

Oh what movie did I see? Breaking Dawn. Was more like breaking a yawn. What a slow movie and friends on facebook talked about how the acting from the two lead characters has gotten better. The same to me it seems. Someone said the next one would be better, Part 2. Really? Because they would have a better budget? Okayyyyy.

I also caught a fast forward version of Bag of Bones on DVR last night before bedtime. Yawn. It must be time to cover the television with a black shroud, because I am bored. The only entertaining thing to me these days is reading and writing. I just finished The Vampire Shrink. Was interestingly funny. Now I would like to see that as a movie, if they do not over dramatize it. Now I am boring myself. I have to start something due last week. Have a nice week everyone!

PS- I also have to come over and see what some of you are up too!

Hi Elizebeth,
What a beautiful photo this is. So Christmasy in its own simple way. Love that you took it through a window. Kind of frames it.
Don't be bored, my dear. You've got so many talents to use that you should never want for something to do.
The movies are a poor excuse these days. Two many "remakes" and "bombs". Keep reading and writing.

You make me happy that I haven't seen any of the Twilight movies! I hope you get the personal chef job. That's pretty cool!

There are 1 million things worse than writing & reading you could be doing. Personally, curling up with a cat(or several) to read is one of my favorite things. ~Mary

The photo does not do the view justice! The old style glass window was just as glorious!

I'm bored of TV, have plenty to do!

Don't waste your time paying theater prices, I wish we hadn't!
