Nothing like spring weather and sunshine to put an extra bounce of hope and joy in our lives. We went to see the movie, The Hunger Games a few weeks ago…with low expectations but really liked it. I told my granddaughter about the movie…she told me about the book and loaned me her copy. Three days ago I finshed reading the second book in The Hunger Games series, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. Loved it! Katniss is defintely my heroine, I am anxious to read the third one as soon as I get my hands on it. These are really fun to read books recommended to me by my granddaughter as well as AARP!
Whne my ten year old Sunday School students started whistling the four note mockingbird tune during crafts last Sunday. I knew. They knew I knew. And it is good to be in tune with what is happening with the younger generations. So far I can see nothing harmful with young or old and everyone in between reading these great page turning thought provoking books. I predict there will be a great increase in the number of young girls who want to learn to use a bow and arrow!
My next book to read is a nonficiton, What’s So Great About America by Dinesh D’Souza. Obviously, I have a a very eclectic taste in books.
Last night we watched the French movie, with English captions, Coco Before Channel, on dvd. It was very good and the pre-WWI historical scenes were especially intriquing. The trouble with the first 40 minutes was me, I was doing the ironing while watching the movie. It’s hard to keep up with all those captions while ironing. Some days just don’t have enough minutes to do all that needs done! Next movie in our queue is I Bought A Zoo. We’ve heard soo many great things about this movie and we are looking forward to it.
Till next time…stay healhty and keep reading , and sure, why not watch a movie or two?
