The Week In Seven Photos

Two more days until the Oscars and I still have a few movies to watch.  Spring-like weather, a trip to the Detroit Zoo and deciding to see Game Night instead of an Oscar movie has slowed my progress.  So far, a few movies that have stood out are Darkest Hour (Best Picture, Best Actor – Gary Oldman), Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Best Picture, Best Actress – Frances McDormand), Loving Vincent (Animated Feature Film) and Game Night (Comedy nomination for next year!!).  If one of my teams loses early in the NCAA Big Ten Basketball tournament this weekend, there is a very slight chance I may finish my Oscar movies challenge by Sunday night.  Enjoy your weekend and The Oscars! 

How could I resist spending time with her instead of watching Phantom Thread.

I was standing by the lake enjoying the warm temperatures and another winter thaw instead of going to theater to see The Post.

It was so wonderful to see some color at the zoo after watching the amazing colors in one of my Oscar nominated favorites, Loving Vincent.

She made a nap look more enjoyable than going to see I, Tonya.

After leading the way this year with 13 Oscar nominations, I probably could lose hours looking into the clouds in this shape of water trying to understand the fascination with The Shape of Water.

I saw this Taveta golden weaver at the Detroit Zoo and wish I was one of the lucky ones who have seen the yellow cardinal in Alabama.

I think this adorable crew was trying to remind me that winter was not over when later in the week our spring-like temperatures were interrupted by a winter storm.
