Olive the cat laying on my journal
My usual early morning seeking to produce 3 webpages in my journal with Olive seeking my notice.

Yesterday we experienced designs to see the film “Amsterdam” with our new friends who reside around the corner. Sure, they are California transplants, too. It looks our neighborhood received crammed with us in the course of COVID.

Our neighbors purchased the film tickets and manufactured reservations for dinner. I was seeking forward to the movie simply because it stars Christian Bale and Margot Robbie. It is directed by the similar dude (David O. Russell) who did “American Hustle” and “Silver Linings Playbook.” Also, we under no circumstances go out on a weeknight, so this was unusually pleasurable for us.

My husband got a text from our neighbor that his spouse bought ill and they wouldn’t be capable to go. They were going to the health care provider as an alternative. So they emailed us the digital tickets. Then my husband had an appointment in Phoenix. I was going to fulfill him at the flicks 30 minutes absent. Then he texted me that he wouldn’t be capable to get away in time to make it to the motion picture.

Oh very well. Greatest laid designs. Particularly wherever did the saying “Best laid designs of mice and adult males oft go astray” occur from?

I appeared it up and this is what I found:
