I want to thank everyone who tolerated and even commented and enjoyed some of the Prince posts from the past few weeks. I know this week was kind of heavy with them, but as he passed a year ago today, I wanted to make sure to do some things to remember him this week. I have pretty much used up all my ideas though so that's all the Prince posts for now. However, do expect to see some books in some upcoming hauls.
Last weekend was nice and restful. I took Grandpa on a mini-trip last Friday while Mr. Barb was working and then he came up for Easter dinner Sunday. With the cousins still at the house, he really needed to get out so I'm glad he felt he could come visit us. The boys got new Easter presents - a bunny and a parrot and enjoyed seeing Grandpa as well.
We also managed to watch a few movies this week that in my opinion, at least didn't suck. First we watched a new horror flick called "The Void." It was kind of reminiscent of 80's horror and I can say I practically loved it. If you are a horror fan, please consider checking it out. Then we watched the new Jamie Foxx film, "Sleepless." It's an action film about dirty and undercover cops in Las Vegas and although it's never going to be winning any awards, it was quite entertaining.
So tonight I will be watching "Purple Rain" and some older videos while chilling with a mixed drink or two. Mr. Barb works this weekend so I plan in doing some errands, visiting Grandpa and then having Chinese with Mom for lunch Sunday. Needless to say I want to cram some reading in so here's what's up on the stack - lots of great looking books!
So how was your week and what are you planning on reading over the weekend???
