Alas! How time flies.

Today is my last day off from taking a bit of vacation this past week. We hardly did anything besides hang around the house, a little shopping, a lot of napping and a tad of clearing out our basement. The weather has been incredible this week, and I know I couldn't have asked for any better. It's been warm, but not too warm during the day, and cool at night. We did have some rain, but not too much. The breeze has been wafting the fragrant perfumes of privet and honeysuckle into the house. It's been especially wonderful since it almost always rains like mad when Keith is off, so this weather has helped keep his mood good.

We did see Ironman yesterday. I highly recommend this movie, and I must admit that Robert Downey Jr. is very easy on the eyes. Would I go see this movie again? Most emphatically yes. And I will admit here that I'll go see the Incredible Hulk later this summer because RD Jr is in it as Tony Stark also. (Hopefully without the iron suit.)

Speaking of movies, we saw the preview for the new Indiana Jones movie. I had wondered how Harrison Ford would look in it. I can't imagine anyone else as Indiana, but he's been looking more than a little rough lately. He looks good, and the movie looks great. I'm glad Karen Allen is back in this one too. She's so much better than the spineless, screaming moron from the Temple of Doom. It comes out on Thursday, but I'm sure it will be a few weeks before we go.

After the movie yesterday I made Keith go with me back to Lush. I did get Volcano, and I used it last night. It does live up to its name. It's a foot mask that helps to soften your feet, and it contains cinnamon leaf extract. It felt very cool on my feet, but after I rinsed it all off, I could tell that every capillary in my feet was opened up. My feet felt quite warm on the inside while the skin was nice and cool. I'd been neglecting my feet until about a week or so ago when Keith looked at them and said they looked dry. Since I probably won't wear any type of closed shoe except for the occasional sneaker until October, I figured I'd better start taking care of them. All I need now is a nice coat of polish.

I'd best get back to the housework. I have laundry and cooking to do to get ready for the week ahead. I'd love to let the day slip away while I nap with the cats, but if I do that, there won't be any dinner or clean underwear.

I know the new Hulk movie is supposed to be a reboot, so we don't have to worry about continuity with that other Hulk movie. And I really like Edward Norton. But I couldn't quite decide from the previews whether it looked worth seeing in the theatre or not. But Edward Norton... :)

I'm gonna wait on the reviews for Indiana IV. The trailer we saw for it kinda gave me a bad feeling, alas.
