Actually, I'm just happy the sun is shining. We've just emerged from two days of gloom. At least we got snow out of it, because we were hurtin' for water, but I'm glad the clouds are now gone. We average 300 days/year of sunshine here, so when it's overcast, I for one go into a bit of withdrawal.
And with the start of spring comes spring break at the university, and same for Meego at the high school. Nothing major planned other than getting caught up on a few things along with filling in the gaps with fun.
And the gloom did provide the opportunity for some spring cleaning. I fired up the chromecast to stream "Sunshine Cleaning" while I decontaminated the house. That movie helped our house to not seem quite so bad.
In other movie news, Magnum and I watched Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation. I have no review to offer because the movie put me to sleep. Well, I guess that's my review.
At the other end of the spectrum, we also watched Wild. I'd been wanting to see that movie ever since I read the book and loved it. And I loved the movie too. It really is a great story, not just her solo trek on the PCT, but the whole thing of what put her there in the first place, and then going on to write the book and make the movie years later. As with the book, I was a bit sad when the movie was over.
Later last night, Magnum suggested we take China for her beauty walk. We usually take her at night because she prefers it, anything above 40 degrees seems too hot for her. I was reluctant because it was dark and cold out. Magnum says, "You just watched that movie, and you don't want to walk the pooch around the block?"
Yesterday, I was at their place and saw the finished chair. Magnum told him he should offer to similarly modify geek friends' chairs for a small fee. Chaco has no interest in that whatsoever, but I snapped a pic, threatening to open an etsy store: "Chaco's Chairs"

I'm wondering, how does he get his homework done? Oh well... I guess he does homework in lieu of cleaning the apartment *ahem*.
