Stars and Meteors....

So went for a wonderful nap Sunday afternoon after no sleep Saturday night and after that felt ready to go outside and see the world. So myself and himself went to see Stardust the new movie http://www.stardustmovie.com/ based on the book by Neil Gaiman http://www.neilgaiman.com/journal/

There's no other way to say this but stop what you're doing and run and go see this movie. Your Granny will love it, your kids will love it and you will cheer at the end of it unlike any other movie you've seen in years. Its the kind of movie that makes you go - yes! they still make movies that I want to see again and again. That magic of the original Star Wars, the first time you saw The Princess Bride. (literally after movie I was in bathroom and this lovely older lady about 85 yrs young was saying how much she loved it and how it reminded her of the Princess Bride, and she was quoting that movie - you killed my father prepare to die while wheeling her walker and I thought - fantastic!)

Afterwards we went to Effies, had some dinner and then I remembered it was the night when you can see the best meteor showers. The Perseid meteor shower was best last night so we decided to sit on our patio under the stars and look for the shooting stars. It was such a beautiful night and we were on such a high from seeing such a brilliant movie.

Three years ago, himself brought me on such an amazing date where we drove into the Santa Cruz mountains to watch the same meteor showers under the night sky with a thermos of hot chocolate in his VW car. And here we were again under the night sky, a week and a bit to go for Hobbit to arrive, at our own wee house and so happy. Feel very blessed and 3 years ago I saw two shooting stars and last night saw 7 shooting stars from our wee patio having a shandy with Himself who is so amazing and thought this is what life is meant to be.
