I started out the day (cutting all discussion of dishes, since that's a given) working on the trailer for the "Cow Cavalry". I had 'finished' it yesterday and had to go back and fix a few things--some of them I spotted for myself and a few others were graciously pointed out to me by family and friends whom I asked to view it critically. It's nice to have an honest critique board. As of this writing, I'm currently uploading my third take to YouTube. Never fear...I'll give you a link here real soon. :)
I landed the job of being the-guy (ahem, gal)-to-watch-Granddaddy this afternoon and because I didn't want to watch the Bonanza episode that was coming on (I'd seen it before and it isn't high on my list...some married woman takes a header for Adam), so I watched "Master and Commander". Mama found a copy at Goodwill earlier this week. I'd heard good things about it and I really enjoyed it. I hope to write a review over on Reformed Reveiws soon. I might actually like to watch it a second time before doing that though because the lighting was terrible (glare on the TV and the film is in shadow box and lots of dark-ish scenes) and I had a couple of breaks where I either had to put Granddaddy on the toilet, hold the urinal, make sure he wasn't going anywhere, and tell him that no, he couldn't go to bed, so I probably lost some stuff in the mix. The music is great, however.
In the meantime, I got about 4 and quarter inches done on a sock. (Dark brown, this pair is going to be.)
So, the question becomes, was my day profitable?
While it doesn't seem like I did much today, I think that yes, my day was profitable. I got some more done on my film project, I got a good start into a sock, and I did something that is, in the long run, far more important...I sat with my Granddaddy. Someone has to do it...and to be completely honest, it doesn't take much arm-twisting to get me to watch movies. Particularly good ones.
Oh, yes...and I also finished that kid biography on Queen Victoria. I have yet to pick my next book...(I like to read during the slow-time when working on video projects...)
