We had toyed with the idea of going to the Bengies Drive-In Theater Dusk to Dawn movie marathon (which is SO much fun, if you can make it out) this weekend. The line up was fantastic, including Twister. I mean, seriously, how cool/scary would it have been to watch a movie at a drive-in that is hit with a twister AT a drive-in? But, the more I thought about it, the more I realized it would be a long time commitment. We would have watched 4 of the 5 movies, and the drive-in is about 20-30 minutes from us. That’s a late night. So, we decided to have a movie marathon at home. I got a few snacks during my grocery run to Aldi. Ah, I so love Aldi. It has saved us so much money, allowed us to eat healthier, and after their remodel, has been an even more enjoyable shopping experience.
We piled the snacks and started off with the new Netflix documentary, Resurface. It is a short documentary about veterans who suffered from PTSD and/or physical injuries who start surfing. It was absolutely amazing and a great reminder that there are veterans that are hurting. Besides a little language, it’s pretty clean. I found myself wanting to surf, and crying the whole time over the stories. Worth a watch, for sure.
Next we watched This Is War, just a fun “two CIA agents dating the same girl” movie. Pretty funny stuff.
We finished the night by finishing the last season of Duck Dynasty. It was sad to finish, because we really enjoy the show. As much as people make fun of the family, they are kind, have deep faith (seriously, reading any of their books you’ll see this), and have a deep love for their family. I love having a show that makes me laugh one minute and cry the next.

That sounds like a fun and relaxing time!
Today I spent the morning reading (and reminding myself that I need to do this more often) and the afternoon cleaning. Now I’m brushing off an old book idea from about a year ago to make into an ebook to be released next year. It’s been a lovely and peaceful day.
It was wonderful! Yes! Yay for more reading! I’m about to hop into my reading chair shortly! Ah, that sounds like a really great day. 🙂
