"Stitchdot" stitch markers. I love what they refer to as the "retro" case. I remember taking my lunch money to school in a case like this one.
I have the toe of one sock to complete on Nathan's socks. Need to have him try it on. His feet get bigger every day!
It was warm enough (with rain) for all the snow to be gone. We even took a nice walk yesterday during halftime of the football game. We have been watching the playoffs this weekend, so didn't watch any movies. We watched the Golden Globe award show. This is always so much more fun to watch than either the Emmys or the Oscars.
We did watch last weeks episode of "Downton Abbey" and I was a little disappointed in what seemed like choppiness in the scenes, didn't seem to flow well. And a little more of the wedding would have been nice. The program that aired before it was the real life residents going through all that they have to do to keep this beautiful place from falling down. It does seem like a daunting task and incredibly expensive.
I am really keeping to my resolution to read 2 books a week. I have been using the recommendations of the podcast "Books on the Nightstand" as my guide and I haven't hit a dud yet. Listened to "The Age of Miracles" audio book and enjoyed it tremendously.
I also read an Agatha Raisin "Hiss and Hers", Now I love M.C. Beaton having read all the Agatha
and Hamish MacBeth series, but this was just dreadful. It reminds me of The Cat Who series that just got impossible to read. Not much plot, or character development and a total disregard to time. I'll probably try the next Hamish but I'm definitely finished with Agatha.
It's hubby's ROMEO night out, so I may watch a movie tonight. Have to see what's out there!
