It is always a bit different being in Decatur for a weekend. Yesterday, Marvin and I got out to go to the library to exchange our movies. We have pretty different taste in movies so he watches his in the man cave and I watch mine downstairs while I stitch.
We did watch The Darkest Hour together. It is about Churchill and how he rallied England in the dark days before the US entered WW2. A very good movie. Gary Oldman who played Churchill may be remembered by Harry Potter fans for his role as Sirius Black. We did see a few familiar faces in this movie....Rory from the Hamish Macbeth series, Reverend Collins from the 1990s Pride and Prejudice as well Tommy Lascelles from The Crown. I watched The Phantom Thread which starred Daniel Day-Lewis. If anyone can explain that movie to me, I would appreciate it.lol
My picks for this week are A Royal Night Out, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children( I read the book and Kendall and Landon said it was pretty good) The Big Sick( Charles and Nancy suggested this one)and Brooklyn which I had wanted to see when it was in the theaters but I missed it. Kudos to the Decatur Library for their good selection of movies for the patrons.
After the library we checked out High Point Market. This new venture sells locally sourced products. I was looking for Shine On Coffee, which is roasted here in Decatur. Alas they did not have any decaf but I put my name on the list to be notified when some is available. Marvin picked up some sausages and I got a cute High Point Market tee shirt.
From their we strolled down the street to The RailYard for lunch.
We were both happy campers as we paid our bill and headed to Pineapples to get a little flag for Grimmwood. I found a perfect one as it said, Farm and Family. I will share a picture when I get it in place. While I browsed Pineapples, Marvin took a stroll down the street. He declared Pineapples a Girly Place. And I guess he is right. Saturday was just a lovely day here...the humdiity was low and you could almost feel a touch of fall in the air.
