family, movie night, and solo shot

It’s already Thursday, which is just crazy. How did that happen?

Nonetheless, it has, and that means it’s time to look back at three beautiful things from the past week:

1. My dad turned 70 (although his spirit is far younger), and my brother and I and our partners were able to make it home to celebrate with him. To mark the occasion, my mom baked her apple crumble pie. No one makes apple pies that taste as good as my mom’s and my grandmother’s.

2. Rudi and I headed to the Uptown last night to catch the penultimate showing there of Trouble with the Curve. It was not high art, but it was a comfortable film that was well acted and that holds its own with most baseball movies. Plus, Amy Adams played a tough chick who could floor you with her baseball knowledge. A definite plus in my book.

3. Jason Werth hit a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth in tonight’s NLDS game 4, sending the Nationals to a tie breaker tomorrow night and eliciting cheers from the restaurant/bar where we were dining.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?
