Yesterday was sunny, the temps were comfortable, hovering in the low to mid 80s (F). Right now we have drizzles outside. Yep, it rained overnight. My dahlias needed it.
Also, the electrician showed up a bit early and we walked through some of the updates I want to have done in the house. One of them, moving and outlet and prepping for the installation of a new sink and dishwasher is going to be put on hold for at least 7 or 8 months. Instead of that expense, I'll have my drywaller remove and install new vinyl plank flooring. What have in the kitchen now is old, and it was very inexpensive. We don't install the product anymore because it's not waterproof, water can leak through the seams, and the wear layer was not intended for dogs.
I went to see Oppenheimer last evening. This is truly one amazing film. There are two stories here, the first being the creation and detonation of the first nuclear weapon, which is in color. This is juxtaposed with the politics of the era with all of the hobgoblins of McCarthyism, and the cold war, which is is stunning black and white. Cillian Murphy is outstanding as a man glorying in the authority and power his creation gives him while coming to terms with the true horror of what he has helped to create. You sympathize with a man whose reality was fed by an ego that was fed by the popular press, someone who realizes too late that he wasn't always in charge of his life. If you get a chance, see it on a really big screen, and prepare yourselves, I cannot even begin to explain the emotional impact this film had on me.
