A day of rest

Today is a day of rest.  Aaaah.

This was taken on a day when there was sunshine last week.  Sammy thinks if he waits on the picnic table he'll have a better view of people moving toward dinner preparation.

It's not sunny today.  There is light rain, clouds, and 57F on the front porch at noon. 

So, it's a good day to stay inside and watch a movie.  Today was "Maria Full of Grace" on DVD.  It was in Spanish with English subtitles.  What a powerful movie, which can be viewed from a couple of perspectives: 1) Columbian drug mules' side of the drug trade; or, 2) a young woman's escape from 'no hope' to 'maybe there is a chance'.  I recommend it 100%.

The young actress Catalina Sandino Moreno, who plays the lead, is up for an Oscar for this part.  I'm glad I don't have to be the one that picks the winner of this year's acting prizes.
