Four-day weekend

It’s Semana Santa (Easter), so we have a four-day weekend, Thursday – Easter Sunday. It’s really nice, but the downside is that everything in town is closed, so there’s not a lot to do. But I’ve enjoyed staying home and relaxing.

We did venture out to the fancy mall on Thursday while it was still open. It’s pretty high-end, plus it has stores like Kiehl’s and Sephora that you would see in America.

Friday we used some elbow grease and moved furniture around, so now one guest room is pretty much ready for company (as long as you don’t open any drawers).

The rest of the weekend we’ve been pretty lazy – or at least I have. John went to work yesterday for a while, and he’s gone to the gym every day this weekend. For some reason, I just can’t get motivated to go. I’m not beating myself up about it for the time being but know that I need to get going again soon.

We’ve had a bit of a movie-fest. I watched “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” while John was gone Saturday. Then together we watched “The Imitation Game” and “Whiplash” – all really good movies.

This past week, we also got caught up on “The Americans,” and we watched a fun, short series called “The Assets,” about how the CIA caught Aldrich Ames, one of the most damaging spies in U.S. history.

Wednesday night we joined a group of co-workers to celebrate a birthday – we had dinner at the new Brazilian restaurant across the street from us. Very good – they have a nice salad bar then they bring a lot of meat on skewers.

I talked to Mom several times this week. While I can’t understand a lot of what she says, she sounds good overall.
