John and I had an unexpectedly relaxing day yesterday. We slept amazingly well – which is always the goal and yet still a pleasant surprise when it happens – and both woke up in this wonderfully fun mood. We were going to sit down and work on our stories, but something came up in a conversation about comics and we made an unexpected trip to Ryan’s Comics in Murrieta.
What a fun time we had! I went through the $1 comic bins looking for comic series that I’m not familiar with to try one or two issues, looking for the kinds of stories I like. We met Ryan, the owner, and the three of us had a great time talking about the best comic book stories, what John and I should try, and all kinds of other geeky things. John found out they’re going to have a 24-hour gaming day next Saturday, April 11, so he’s happy to be going to that. And I promised I’d send brownies in with him. (Haha! The only thing I make that is great.)
Then we rented Interstellar and Annie from Redbox. We saw Interstellar last night. Very well done, very interesting, very cerebral, but a couple things in the overall philosophy that didn’t jive, so we decided it was just okay. (I can’t even tell you what it was because it would totally give away the story.) We’ll try to get home in time tonight to watch Annie, which should be fun and much more straightforward. (Haha!) 😀
We’re so happy to be driving to Los Angeles to go to our own church, Bel Air Presbyterian, instead of watching church streaming live on the Internet. We get to hug our friends, and talk-talk-talk, and go out to lunch. It’s going to be wonderful! I can hardly wait!
Anyway, that’s been our Easter weekend. I hope yours is just as wonderful! Lots of love and hugs and prayers to you and yours. 🙂
