Happy Friday, y’all!
I don’t know about you, but I am so happy Friday is here. It hasn’t been a bad week, but I am ready to sleep later than 5AM and to get a little craftiness on. Bring on the weekend!!
Big Girl has a retreat with her church group this weekend. She’ll only be 2.5 miles from home, but she is really looking forward to it – and I am so happy she has this opportunity. Little Bit has a playdate scheduled tomorrow afternoon and SuperMan has to work – so guess what that means for Mama Bear?!? You guessed it! CRAFTINESS! Woo hoo!
I’m trying to decide between sitting in my rocking chair and watching Downton Abbey while I finish crocheting this:
Or, sitting in my office and watching some Forsyte Saga on Amazon Prime while I catch up on some more of my Project Life pages.
Have you watched (or heard of) The Forsyte Saga? I stumbled across the show while perusing titles on my Amazon Prime membership. It’s a Victorian-era drama (soap opera) set in London. The story follows the Forsyte family – the two brothers who are the heads of the family and their sons and daughters and grandchildren. One of the main characters, Soames Forsyte is a lawyer and he longs for love and prestige and finds that his quest to possess these both lead him to find loneliness and disappointment. Money can’t buy you love, honey. That’s what I keep wanting to shout at him when I am watching the show.
Soames marries Irene who does not love him but marries for the security and position he offers. Soames is confident Irene will grow to love him but she does not and the marriage is a troubled one – especially when niece June brings up-and-coming architect Philip Boisnney to meet the family. A love, um, square? ensues and occupies quite a bit of the story line for a few episodes.
I’m not finished with the first season but I am totally entranced. Maybe even more so than I am with Downton Abbey. Just as with Downton, there are characters you love, those you feel sorry for and those you just want to slap in the face!
If you have Amazon Prime and like Downton, I’d suggest you take a look at the show.
Let’s just Nap, shall we?
I’m off this morning to run errands, buy groceries, etc. but truthfully all I really want to do is take a nap! I think it is because of the rain we are getting. It’s gloomy and rainy and makes you want to hibernate. (and maybe because I stayed up late hanging out with the Forsytes?)
I am thinking a pilgrimage to Starbucks might be in order – I may need to fortify myself with a shot of caffeine to make it through the day.
If I get some crafty done this weekend, I’ll share my progress with you…
