Friday night husband and I headed off to see the Downton Abby movie. It did not disappoint. I love the splendor of it all! The costumes and the settings in the south of France in the late 30's early 40s and of course Downton itself. It was nice to have couple of hours where you could escape real life and just pretend.
We have not been to the movies in at least 3 or more years. It is not a cheap night but once in 3 years we splurged. We bought popcorn and a box of junior mints! It is worth seeing just for the evening gowns alone!
The heat has settled in the past few days. Horrid, humid, heat.
We are camped out on our porch with the ceiling fans going full speed. The porch is my most favorite place in the house.
It smells so good lilacs on one end.
Lily of the valley on the other, heavenly
My lady slippers are back. So glad
And we have wooden screen doors on either end of our porch. Each time I hear on bang I think of summers at my grandmother's, such good memories.
I got a fair amount done on my rug at camp last weekend. And I put a bit of background in this week.
I have really enjoyed this rug, but I will be glad to move on.
I am changing a few things I do not like the nonsensical things in the background. So I am drawing in vines and flowers where I can and just deleting the rest.
Very different color pallet for me but I am again enjoying it.
I have read a couple of books lately but they are crazy, a bit trashy books but they make me laugh until I have tears running down my face. Just exactly what I need right now.
Janet Evanovich by the numbers books. I thought I had read them all but I found a couple I had not.
The world has been over whelming to me lately. I have avoided the news and just try to catch the weather.
Well you know what is happening no need to hash it out here.
We are in for storms this afternoon it will cool things off for next week. I just hope they are not severe.
Have a wonderful week!
