Metro Recommends: Volver
It’s been a nice weekend so far. Last night I went to a movie (my first in AGES) and dinner with the two moms across the street. We had a lovely time-we’re going to make it a regular thing.
The movie was excellent. Volver (to return) is Pedro Almodovar’s latest tribute to women. A story about family, death, rebirth, and going home again, with a twisty plot, it kept me riveted. Penelope Cruz is magnificent and the other female supporting characters are wonderful too. I highly recommend.
Today my mom and I did a little shopping. Mom bought me a Skip Hop diaper bag for my Christmas/birthday present. I never carry any other type of bag anymore, so I thought I deserved a cool diaper bag. We went to Treasure Island Toys on the Danforth-it's a great store. The staff are super. I picked up some toys for Cakes (I had the hardest time staying in budget, but I did it).
Tonight I'm going to make a nice meal for my folks. Tomorrow Cakes and I are going to meet her new little cousin, Cole (I've been too sick and contagious until now). I hope Cakes doesn't hit him-she's been a little rough lately.
How are y'all spending the weekend?
