However, the challenge was good for me. I'll do the next painting in this series on another cradled panel.
That cold I mentioned 2 weeks ago: I still have it. It keeps coming and going. On the days that I feel well, I have absolutely no symptoms. On the days I feel not so well, my head is stuffed up horribly. Meanwhile, I haven't had any sore throat, no fever or aches so I know this isn't a flu -- just a really stuffy head on some days but not on others. Weird.

I've seen a number of good films since my last movie report. These were all from Netflix.
Muscle Shoals -- another excellent documentary about the mid-20th-century music business.
Annie Liebovitz: Life Through a Lens
Everlasting Moments -- Swedish film
Million Dollar Arm -- great sports-related film
The Hundred-Foot Journey
McFarland, USA -- another excellent sport-related film
I've never considered myself much of a sports fan -- but I find that I really love sports movies...because they're always good human interest stories that are about way more than just sports. One of my fave movies sports or not is Bend It Like Beckham, which I've seen maybe half a dozen times.
I have had my sports-loving moments, though. Like watching this year's Superbowl online (thank you NFL) so I could see The New England Patriots and Tom Brady win another Superbowl. Although I don't regularly follow any team in any league and probably never will again.
Have a good week. Thanks for reading!
