So did the better half's vacation.
He is back out on the road again.
We decided to spend the last evening of his vacation quietly at home with "Dinner and a Movie Night".
He loves to grill and I have to say he is really quite good at it. I enjoy when he grills, not only does the food taste better to me (always does when someone else cooks) there is less mess in the kitchen for me to clean up.
We had a delicious meal of grilled salmon steaks, a side salad, asparagus and a baked potato.
After dinner we watched Australia.
We rarely go out to the theaters. The last time was in 2004. Going to the theater is a bit out of my comfort zone. I have a difficult time with crowds and it is almost impossible for me to sit still for 2 hours.
Now don't get me wrong, I do watch movies. It is just easier at home where I can putter and piddle around the house while the better half can kick back in his recliner comfortably and watch.
Besides my not being able to sit still...the price of a ticket at the theater...oh my goodness, come on...in 2004 it was $6.00 per person for an afternoon matinee at that. An afternoon out for 4 with drinks, snacks or popcorn cost almost $50.00. I can think of much better things to spend $50.00 on than a movie. Sorry about the little rant...back to the movie...
In my opinion Australia was a very good movie.
I am not a big Nicole Kidman fan but still it was a good movie.
Hugh Jackman was awesome.
It was a drama, a western of sorts (better half loves westerns), a love story and much more rolled into one. We laughed out loud a couple of times and it brought tears to our eyes later on.
For the better half a good movie has to have a happy ending, this did. I actually didn't want it to end.
