Time to relax. And nothing says Hawaii like relaxing in a hammock.
I think a hammock is actually a required item when living in Hawaii. We have a camping hammock.
We took it to Girls Camp this summer.
It fit perfectly between two palm trees, and was a great place to swing! I had hoped to bring it home and put it right to good use in our yard. But it is rolled up, forgotten and abandoned, on the floor of my laundry room, as none of our trees are close enough together to hang it.
So, I'm dreaming of something like this:
(wish we had that view, too...)
The Tiki Hut NEEDS a hammock. Really. Can it be a Tiki Hut without a hammock? The kids like to play outside each evening, but I'd rather lay on the couch. With a hammock I could get all my relaxing done while they run around! Perfect!
But (and I do mean butt) hammocks do sometimes have the embarrassing problem of allowing all your soft parts to mush through. That's something to think about, you know.
While you ponder that fascinating bit of diamond shaped squish, I have two movie recommendations for your Aloha Friday Movie Night:
Last weekend we checked out Sweet Land. It was the grown-up movie in our movie night selection, and by the time it started all the youngsters were snoozing. It is a totally SWEET movie. Seriously. One of the best movies I've seen all year. It had all my favorite things - the prairie, hard work("farming and banking don't mix"), accents, angst, and love. Loved it when they held hands. Beautiful. and rated just PG. It is a little slow and had kind of a confusing beginning. I hope you love it as much as we did.
And tonight I am going to watch Dear Frankie for the 4th time this week. It is the story of a young deaf boy who writes letters to his absent father. His mother has set up a PO box to collect his letters and answers them as if she is his "da" who is a sailor. Frankie tracks his dad's ship as it travels the world. Things get tricky when the ship his dad is supposedly on comes to port in Frankie's home town, and Frankie's Mammy has to find a substitute dad to act the part. Again, another sweet story. Gerard Butler is hawt! I wonder what else he is in... Some language near the end of the movie, and the Scottish accents are really strong. I had to turn on the subtitles to catch all the words.
What's on your queue?
