This weekend we spent a couple nights watching the 1956 version of War & Peace (the one with Audrey Hepburn) with our older girls. It’s a three hour movie so it took us three nights to get through. It’s been at least 14 years since I’ve read War & Peace and either the movie changed a lot of the plot or I barely remember it at all (probably both) so I decided it is time for a re-read. This will be slow going as I have many other books on the go right now but it will be worth it. This only days after I was extolling the virtues of short novels. But if being isolated and on bed rest isn’t the right time to re-read War & Peace then I don’t know when is.
I did not walk around the block today or do much of anything other than lay down because I’m trying to heal any bones that may have recently cracked.
