starry eyed saturday

not a lot to write about this week. . . but i thought i should have at least a saturday check in.

today was the first day of the charlottesville farmer's market, but sadly, i realized a bit too late and missed it.

soon tashi and i are going to see the spiderwick chronicles. she read the series of books recently, and so is eagerly anticipating the film. last night i watched atonement. i feel fairly indifferent about the film; in fact, i was sort of loathing it at first. but i found that, more than the story, i enjoyed the filmy-ness of it all, the camera work, the flash forward/ flash back storytelling, the sets & costumes, and in particular, i dug the typewriter incorporated into the soundtrack. so it was entertaining enough.

tomorrow we are going to see a free concert of traditional indian music by vishwa mohan bhatt. now that's something to look forward to!

this week is tashi's spring break. we haven't much planned, a few play dates, a couple bring-your-daughter-to-work days. and at the end of the week my dad is visiting with his wife shirley. that will be good fun!

anyway, i'm off to have my weekend. how's that for random, anyway?

I'm dying to see Atonement. I liked the book. The stars are lovely.

i cannot take credit for those stars (only the photograph of them). they were items discovered in the waldorf school treasure hunt last friday.
