Day Two of Baranduin's visit and it has all been really great. Do go to her journal and check out all the photos she is posting.

We have been eating well and eating very healthily. I made almond butter today and it was yummy.

We have been watching DVDs and making bead bracelets. And doting upon the kittens. Gideon is being "relentlessly obnoxious." Smudge is being stoic and thus utterly unimpressed by anything that Baranduin offers him as an acknowledgement of his wonderfulness. And Bangs is a special snowflake who wouldn't let anyone touch him for the first day and now is demanding tummy rubs and allowing himself to be held and snuggled, even if only for a few brief moments.

Last night we watched Grand Budapest Hotel. I found the movie to be wonderful and just so beautifully constructed. I loved how the story line, the characters, the dialogue and the movement of the actors all fit together in one of the most beautifully constructed films I have ever seen. I was utterly enchanted. And Wes Anderson is not my favorite director by a long shot but it was as if every movie he has made up to now was to allow him to fit together all the pieces of plot, dialogue, movement, and just all of it. Quirky. Odd pacing. Very stylized. But it all came together and delivered a powerful film. So glad I finally watched it.

Then tonight we watched How to Train Your Dragon. We covered up the kitties' eyes during the sad or scary parts.

The cats found us very annoying.

It is nice to have the kind of company that gets you to relax while they are here.

Tomorrow the mountains!

I'm so happy you gals (and kitties) are enjoying such a great visit.

I'll put that movie in my Netflix queue.

I love almond butter.

Glad you're having fun. LJ is down right now, so I'm glad you posted here at DW.

aww...Such a great thing to see so many happy posts from you and B.!!! It seriously made a sad day for me way less sad, especially with the pics. And this is a very important question, but did you see the Animal Merge Love Heart Blair and Jim moment yet?

Budapest Hotel was a movie that I finished watching and wasn't sure whether I liked or not. I LOVED the visuals and the uniqueness of plot and so much about it, but there was something in the particular quirkiness that I wasn't maybe in the mood for the day I saw it? I'm not sure. I couldn't put my finger on how I felt exactly at all.

The best kind of friend in the world is one with whom you can relax and don't always have to be 'on'. You don't find them often, and it's wonderful when you do.
