The last weekend was a long weekend for me and comprised of four days of rest. I slept late and feel less tired (as my daughters say, we should have more long weekends!).
I spent some of my time watching a series that I have grown to love: Downton Abbey. I enjoy the drama and the day to day happenings of the characters in an England that no longer exists. I delight in the intrigue, and love to hate some of the characters. I managed to finish watching all the episodes until the end of season 4 – and now wait impatiently until the next season is broadcast on Netflix. While watching Downton Abbey, I worked on the afghan that I am crocheting for my daughter. She chose the colour combination and I think she chose well.
I spent some time reading on the sofa with a cup of tea in my hand in the early morning hours while the rest of the household was still asleep. With my feet up, I entered the world of Jack Calder in The Violin Man’s Legacy by Seamus Gallacher with no interruptions. I am happy to say that I completed this novel and was able to begin another – Crash & Burn by Lisa Gardner.
Most of the weekend was spent at home. With the temperatures way below zero (at -36C), we decided to spent family time indoors. I was grateful, however, that I was able to rest completely and that I could spend long lunches and dinners eating and chatting with my family.
