Greetings from Meadowside

We have a very highly hyped snowstorm coming on Sunday, so on Saturday we went to Meadowside Nature Center along Rock Creek Park to walk. The wind chill wasn't as cold as the past few days and the trees kept it from blowing hard along the creek, so it was a beautiful afternoon to walk to the mill ruins and we saw deer and many, many vultures in the woods. Then we stopped at Roots Market for vegan lox and other necessities before the arrival of the snow. There was a Pokemon Sneasel event going on, so I caught lots of those too.

After dinner we watched The Dig, which I had been warned shortchanged Peggy Piggott's actual contributions and altered the details of her life story for some gratuitous storyline developments, but it has a lot of lovely aspects -- Carey Mulligan's and Ralph Fiennes' performances, the discovery of the boat, the recreation of the Sutton Hoo dig, a child performer who's lovely, the overlap with The King's Speech. Would definitely watch again. And SNL is back, uneven but enough good moments (kiss!) that it was worth watching.
