It is beautiful here in the heart of central Illinois today. Bright sunshine and 51 degrees right now to reach all of the way into the upper 70s today.
I told you all about my lovely Mom’s Day lunch out at the Red Lobster on Saturday, Yesterday afternoon my daughter took me to a movie I have been wanting to see since it hit the theaters a few weeks ago. It is The Lucky One from a book written by Nicolas Sparks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9w8lE83oYeM It was awesome. I love the books by Nicolas Sparks anyway but this one really touched my heart. The story is about a Marine who has served 3 tours of duty in Iraq and finds a picture on the battlefield of a pretty girl. On the back of the photo are the words ‘Be safe.’ And I won’t tell you any more. I cried a bit during the first part of the movie as it was a war scene. I saw what our troops are going through each day fighting in a war that should never have been. If you get a chance do see the movie. I promise it will enchant you.
Zac Efron, the star of the movie.
As soon as I get off the computer this morning I am going to get the flowers and tomato plant as I think we are finally over the frosts here. Pictures tomorrow.
I hope you all have a peaceful week. Stay safe and be happy!!
