another long weekend for me – probably the last for quite some time. friday night we finally went to see Black Swan – and we will definitely see it again. my favorite Darren Aronofsky film is by FAR the Fountain – but Black Swan was definitely great.
we also spent some time watching the United States of Tara – Season 2. we both just love this show, and Toni Collette is endlessly talented.
i took down the christmas decorations, and yesterday i took down the tree. ninja is bummed, but our living room looks huge. the saddest part for me is that every morning he would follow me downstairs and wait while i turned on the tree lights – which seemed to give him lots of joy. this morning he is sitting in my lap as i type, so i guess it isn’t too bad for now – and what i thought was joy over the tree could have just been joy over finally being fed… but i’ll stick with the tree hypothesis.
here are a few photos i got over the weekend. it was clear and frozen, and felt a lot like Vermont winter – minus the snow of course.
