Join us each weekend for Celebrate This Week with Ruth Ayres.
When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!
A movie, a play, a movie, and a play. It's been an indulgent week. Monday night we met Sara and Will at the theater to see "Hidden Figures." Wednesday afternoon I went to the Rep with a friend to see "Woody Sez." Friday afternoon we went to the movies again. This time to see "Fences." And today we have tickets for the matinee of "The King and I" at the Paramount. If you haven't seen Hidden Figures yet, go! Woody Sez, about the life and music of Woody Guthrie was delightful (especially for this homegrown Oklahoma girl). "Fences" was thought provoking and intense. We saw the play years ago in Houston. And today, after "The King and I," I'll be humming those familiar tunes. All in all, it's been a great way to spend the week. Can you tell I'm avoiding the real world for now?
We belong to a film club and tonight our friend Bobbi will be doing her Year in Review discussing favorite films of 2016. That's why we were "forced" to fit in two movies this week that we'd been meaning to see.
I also celebrate our Three Musketeers occasional book club. When two good friends moved away, we set up a google chat book club. It's always a challenge to get the three of us together, but what a delight to catch up with these two dear friends over a book. This week Coleen was in town for her annual ski trip with some other friends, so she came by my place and we connected with Renae for our discussion of What Alice Forgot by Lian Moriarty. Next up is The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. (I was a bit sneaky suggesting this title since it's what I'm reading for my other book club.)
And as always, I celebrate our friend, Ruth, and this community of friends who come together weekly to look for and celebrate the good in our lives.
