Time with Nanna, Remembering Alexander and Movie Marathon #15

On Saturday night we continued on with the marathon by watching #15, “The Living Daylights” (1987).

This was Timothy Dalton’s first movie and I really liked him in it. Ed and I will be reserving our ultimate rating of “Favourite Bond” until the end but he was good. It sucks when your Supporting Actor can’t act (see below for more details).

As the movie progressed, I was starting to think (more and more) that this was going to be my favourite one. But in the end, not so much. The plot started out believable and fairly easy to follow and ended up with people riding horses in the desert and falling out of airplanes in jeeps (hope I didn’t just ruin the movie for you).

Besides, the female lead (whoever she was, no need to remember her unless you want to remember her so that you’ll never see a movie with her in it again but fear not because I’m pretty sure that she wasn’t in one) was a really bad actor.

Ed gave it a “6” rating and I gave it an “8”.

On Sunday, we all went out for breakfast. Afterwards, Ed and I headed into Ottawa for a day of errands. We didn’t end up watching a movie as Ed had to prepare for several meetings (in Ottawa) that he has tomorrow.

The kids have been adding new words to their vocabulary every day. Artemis loves to draw, organize things and do puzzles. Max likes to play with balls, drive his car and play his musical instruments (electric piano, manual piano, tambourine, drum, whistle, horn and his karaoke machine). They’re both 33″ and almost in 24 month clothing.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end and after seven sleeps, Nanna will be leaving us tomorrow.

I need to take more pictures but we’ve been really busy. Here is one taken during breakfast. Artemis loves to show her teeth (note that she can say “teeth” and also show you where yours or hers are).

Yesterday, October 15 was Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Everyone deals with the loss of a child differently but most people enjoy talking about their child. Don’t be afraid to let them know that you’re thinking about them and that you remember their child. Sometimes the memories are all they have left.
