Yesterday, I decided to do something totally selfish and decadent . I realize that decadent for everyone is different. For me, decadent can mean so many different things. It can mean staying up as late as I want and sleeping in as late as I want. It could be laying on a rabbit skin rung, curled up under a window with the light streaming in.
But yesterday, it involved finally going in to see the latest Avengers movie followed by dinner at a nice Korean restaurant. I enjoy watching movies but due to being about 2 hours by air from the closest movie theater, I don't usually get a chance to go.
When I bought my tickets for the matinee, I got sticker shock!!!!!! They charged $9.50 for a single ticket!!!!! For that much I could have waited till the DVD came out but on the other hand, I would have missed out on the whole surround sound experience if I had not gone. Did I like it? Yes I did except for some of the fight scenes where the editing was so quick you couldn't see who was doing what. Other than that, I loved it.
After a lovely dinner at a Korean restaurant, I popped over to the ice cream place for a double scoop of ice cream. I had one scoop of pipeline swirl and one scoop of S'mores which lasted me through a lazy drive over Rosie Creek Road to Cripple Creek Road, past Bluegrass, Dulcimer, and Violin before intersecting the highway. A right turn and a mile later, I was home.
The weather was awesome and the ice cream as usual was totally decadent. I don't usually treat myself to a nice afternoon like this. I should have stayed home and done some work but you know what? I do not feel the least bit guilty about putting things off to today.
Always remember, take time for yourself! Its important!
