Anyone who reads my blog for much length of time knows it’s very hard for me to tear myself away from knitting and/or the beach. But summer is never complete for me without some lazy afternoons spent reading or going to the movies.
I just finished reading a real-life Indiana Jones story, which fascinated me and basically meant I couldn’t carry on with life until I finished the book. Parts of it were very technical, but overall, it was an interesting read and amazing to me that there is somewhere left on earth that is relatively unexplored. However, the author also gives a dose of reality about the risks taken to go trekking through dense jungle, and just so I don’t spoil anything, let’s just say that Indiana Jones remains more fantasy than reality.
Next on my reading list is an art heist true story… if you’ve already read it, let me know your thoughts, spoiler-free of course!
On to movies:
I don’t know if there’s an exploration theme going on with me, but I have always loved the Pirates of the Caribbean movies – especially the first one, and the last two. I just took the kids to see the latest last week, and it didn’t disappoint!
But, there is one movie that is at the top of my wish list to see:
A number of people I know are so excited about this movie they went in costume to see it. Not sure I will go in costume, but, if I did, this would be my cape. Seriously the coolest knitting project ever! And this is why I think our community is the best ever – where else do you find such cool stuff for free?! Enjoy!
