Movies and Yarn

I have *a lot* of rug yarn, all in tangled skeins, currently filling the closet in what will be Daniel’s nursery.  So I’m making them into balls.  To keep the mind from getting too numb, I’m watching movies while doing it.  Currently, I’m rewatching _The Lake House_.  Yeah, I’m a sucker for romance films that have a fantasy/magical realist element in it.  In this case, the magical realism is cross-time communication (gal in 2006, writing to guy in 2004, with one mailbox as the shared point between them).

It’s a sweetly poignant little movie with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reaves.  Yeah, a “chick flick.”  Certainly not for manly manly types.  🙂

Back to making yarn balls…

7/10/2007 Update: Another sweetly poignant little movie, this time with Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor — _Miss Potter_, about Beatrix Potter, the creator of Peter Rabbit.  Which reminds me to buy _The Tale of Peter Rabbit_ for Daniel…

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.
