The days are getting shorter

After breakfast we had a little visit with Max (via Skype). He’d slept 10 hours and had just finished another 2 hour nap. And he was VERY happy and VERY cute.

Somewhere around 10:30 it was time to go for a walk. The day was quite warm, but not stinking hot. We headed out on Ginger Rogers and stopped at the mall on Monterey. Picked up a few things and once we were nicely cooled off, headed back home. Along the way we stopped at Macdonald’s for a quick lunch. When we got home Sue headed out to her spot in the shade in the backyard and I sat down at my computer.

We had to hurry our showers and hurry out the door and even drive through a couple of just-barely red lights to get to the Palme d’Or theatre in time for the 4:20 showing of “The Gatekeepers”. But we made it. The cool thing about the Palme d’Or is that they are showing lots of small independent films, including foreign films. Today’s movie was one of the five best foreign film nominees for the 2013 Academy Awards. It tells the story of Shin Bet, Israel’s secretive internal security service, from the perspective of six of its former leaders. The description doesn’t sound at all interesting, but Sue and I really enjoyed the movie and even had a little movie discussion on the way home.

When we got back to the house we watched a bit of TV. No pizza tonight — too many leftovers in the fridge. We had leftover steak and fried potatoes. After our comedy shows we watched “Kitchen Nightmares” and the first part of “Shark Tank” and … well, actually we had ‘cued up’ a couple more shows after that but that’s around the time I pulled a Max and fell asleep on the couch. I don’t remember what time it was when Sue dragged me off to bed, but we’ll see tomorrow if 10 hours of sleep really is the secret to happiness.
