the TV's on... but nobody's home...

Home from the warm to the cold... home to the daily stuff i was not responsible for whilst away... home again home again jiggity jig...

i enjoyed my time away immensely.... sat in warm sunshine.. took a bunch of photos ... finished that sweater i started (after a false finish with monkey arms that had to be ripped back LOL)... finished a pair of soldier socks .... had two books read to me (And Furthermore by Dame Judi Dench and Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen which i am still having read to me)... read two other books (one was the review of the other day and the other was The Tudor Mystery (i think - can't remember and it is packed in a box on its way back here).... interesting take on the transfer of power from Edward to Mary to Elizabeth... with a little stopover with Jane Grey...

i enjoyed being able to sit and watch the "big" tv without having to jockey for position early... no so now... where b&c (my nickname for the husband) is watching inane comedy on cbs right now... comedies that i cannot even really sit in the room with... lol... he wants to watch the glee version of Grey's Anatomy tonite, which we don't really watch... but since thursday is not exactly the superbowl of tv night, i'll bite....

this post has a ranty-kinda flavor, but i feel i've deserted the blog for long enough and needed to say something again.

i will be starting a new little beret for my girl as soon as the yarn gets here. The talented pamela allen posted a freebie the other day (the day after my natal day to be exact) on her blog page TANGLED - and it will be lovely for spring... the blog title is A Beret for Baby and it's just adorable. My "baby" isn't new born... but she is just perfect for a little beret for spring...

and since...i think i've heard this song about 10 times today in commercials for the musical Grey's Anatomy... my musical offering is .. chasing cars... enjoy it...

a quote?

forget what we're told... before we get too old.. show me a garden that's bursting into life...
