Sunday Night Thunderstorm?

Its been a nice quiet weekend, just the way I like it. I did my usual Saturday thing (after getting home from the beach late Friday night). I like my Saturday routine- go to the chiropractor (I like to pretend this is my weekly massage paid for by health insurance), do a little shopping, and then go for a nice long walk. Generally I walk up to the Court House area, where there are lots of little cafes where I can have lunch. There is also an outdoor flea market where I can look at fun stuff, but have never wasted my money. I sit in a little cafe, eat my lunch, read a book, pretend I am in Europe again, and then go to the movies. My favorite part about all of this is that I can walk to all of it. Walking makes me feel more like part of the community, even if my so-called community is one of the highest turnover neighborhoods in the entire area. Most people never live in this part of town beyond the length of lease. But I love to pretend there is community here and that somehow I belong to it.
This week's movie, by the way, was the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants." I have not yet read the book, but will now. I hadn't expected such a tear jerker. I loved it though!
Its nearly 11 pm now, and Cec and I keep thinking we hear a thunderstorm outside. Every few minutes our living room shakes and coffee table shudders. We have checked out the windows and online multiple times for a massive storm. But nothing! No clouds in the sky! We are on the top floor so we didn't think the constant rumblings could be furniture moving about. Finally, I opened up the door and heard the crash and rumbles even louder, followed by the Darth Vadar march. It appears that the people below us have installed a very nice surround sound system. At least it is just Star Wars. I can't imagine what it would sound like if they were watching "Saving Private Ryan" or something like that!
You may notice some changes on the blog soon. I am experimenting with my very limited knowledge of programming. (which equates to- if i can steal the code from someone else and copy and paste, that is what i will do) But I have added a stats counter, so I can see how many hits I get. (I won't be acknowledging when I refresh the counter.) And I have added links to a few more blogs by friends. If you would like to add your blog to the list, just shoot me an email!

have a great week!
