1. Hiram, Molly, Deke, and I worked for about two hours and jerking up the weeds in the backyard, creating a haystack on the concrete patio, a satisfying outcome of a small commitment of time and good work.
2. Deke fixed pesto for pasta and an anitpasto. What a refreshing, satisfying meal.
3. I enjoyed Stranger than Fiction tonight. I enjoyed its exploration of narrative fiction and how genres work and it's the only movie I've ever seen Will Ferrell star in and I enjoyed his portrayal of the Macon Leary-like* IRS auditor who breaks through the confines of his mechanical life and learns to live a life of vitality, especially as he comes to learn his death is just around the corner.
* The terribly emotionally shut down central character of Anne Tyler's The Accidental Tourist.
