though I don't know why. Still catching up?
Well, I'm halfway through the first of the three surprise loans from the Comtesse. That particular book has been on my "to read" list for more than two years, so I thought I'd start there. Perfect in every way--exactly what I needed. Thank you, again.
Spent yesterday alone (Duchezz on OES trip to Sonnenburg Gardens [which she says have noticeably declined since she was last there] on Duke to Melee Madness). So, I watched The Bretts
Vol. 1*, which I'd ordered from Netflix. Perfectly lovely. Made me a bit sour, though--I really miss my PBS and Masterpiece Theatre/Mystery! fixes. Grumble grumble.
At Mass today we got the news that Father Healy is out of his coma, sitting up, and trying to form words. This is good news.
Went with The Boy to see the fourth Indiana Jones movie. I was perfectly satisfied (not to be confused with claiming it's a good
movie) and entertained.
Made roasted vegetable soup for dinner. I have been requested to "not forget how [I] did it." I'll call that a win.
Duchezz and I stayed up to watch our third summer obsession's season premier. Looks like Who's the Next Food Network Star?
is going to be another edition of Who's the Next Bozo Who's Going to Get a 6 Show Contract and Then Vanish?
That's okay. The show is still entertaining. And not as much with the swearing as Hell's Kitchen
. Of course, there's a conflict with the show Morguhn's been looking forward to (In Plain Sight
on USA), so I'll have to get the VCR warmed up and figure out whose most likely to watch his/her show on tape. If this is the biggest problem I've got to deal with, I'm thankful.
Looking back on the short week (Sunday and Monday being holidays), I came up with three FOs (2 knitting, 1 embroidery), did some cleaning and gardening, walked more than 3 miles on two different days, cooked some, read some, and tellied some. All in all, I'm happy with it.*More on that later--strange nostalgia resulted.
