Rest Is Best – October 21, 2009

Today is going to be a day for me to catch up on a number of things.  I need to work on a blog entry, take care of some college recommendations that I have agreed to write and work on a couple of magic effects for tomorrow evening’s gathering of los veteranos.  Susan has decided that she wants to return to La Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias to shoot some more pictures.  She takes off about 11:00 and we agree to meet for lunch at a restaurant call La Lambrusquería that Nick had pointed out to us when we did our swing through the Cánovas section of the city.

I finish my work at 1:00 and take a shower and get dressed.  I meet Susan a little after two and we choose the menu of the day.  We both start with an outstanding spinach salad and Susan follows with a plate of pasta and I choose pizza.  We order a bottle of wine and later have dessert and coffee.  The two menus added up to 13.90 Euros and the wine was another $13 Euros.  Not bad for a fancy little restaurant.  We head back home at 5:00 and decide to take life easy.  Susan resumes her reading of The Time Traveler’s Wife and I head out to play the slots.  Luck is with me and I cash out 100 Euros, which means that I made a 65 Euro profit.  After almost six weeks, I am still ahead.

We decide to spend the evening at home.  We both read for a while and then we watch THE BROTHERS BLOOM, which we had downloaded from iTunes.  I watch for an hour and then give up and go to bed.  Susan stays until the bitter end and makes her way upstairs a little after midnight to sleep perchance to dream.

Here are some of the photos that Susan took yesterday.
