It has been a quiet week. And, no news is good news.
The biggest excitement round these parts is that Max, our 110 lb. rotty-mix, is having a heck of a time. His world has been thrown into chaos by obsessive behavior (on his part). You see, a young, stray, orange and white cat has made an appearance. Repeatedly. And in the last two days, has dared to allow Max's humans to pet him--and then gets his purr motor going, loudly, adding insult to injury on Max's part.
Now, we must take extra caution when opening the door--because Max has already dashed outside in hot pursuit of the orange and white hobo who seems to be taking up residence here.
That aside, life has been quiet.
Today, Hubby and I took our 4 year old granddaughter to see, "Brave", the Disney/Pixar film.
But...this princess breaks the Disney mold. They are finally giving a good "princess" message to little girls. And it does not distract from the story. There was no prince charming saving the day. You read that right.
The princess was tough, capable, and refused to be married off to a prince from a local clan.
There were consequences from her attempt to change her fate, and she had to face them (there had to be a story) but it's a good story...and made me glad that we took our granddaughter to see it.
Kudos to Disney for getting this princess stuff right!
