We ended up staying home New Year's Eve. I was all set to go, when I found Warren setting on the couch with his eyes closed, looking miserable. He had a migraine starting up, so I called Mindy & let her know we were staying home. He went to bed at 9 p.m. & slept all night. He felt better the next day.
A celebration of Alaska's 50Th year of Statehood, activities are now happening in downtown Anchorage & all across the state. Yesterday there was an array of venues & the Anchorage Daily News has a slide show of pictures. I found friends Corinne McVee (holding the flag)& Mona (front & center, who has a new last name that I can't remember, she just got married).
You can tell from the pictures we are still in the deep freeze. Temps got all the way up to -8 here yesterday. It was -18 last night when I checked. Right now it's -12.2 at our house in the middle of the day.
I'd really like to go the the Museum to see the "quilt" display. Actually they are panels that we pieced together. I worked on one of them. We are going out for dinner & maybe a movie today.
We saw the "Curious Case of Benjamin Button" on New Year's Day. It was OK. I didn't love it, nor did I hate it. It was entertaining, but weird as this sounds, from someone who loves Sci-Fi, & Fantasy books & movies, I have a hard time getting into a story where the character is aging backwards. It just defies all the laws of nature. Why would the magic in Harry Potter be more acceptable to me than aging backwards? I just don't know.
