Grateful for Long Weekend

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!).

Downton Abbey season 1.jpgI 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.

The Violin Man's Legacy

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.

  1. Minus 36!!!! I can’t imagine dear Colline 🙂 In here it was 20 °C that is not normal for February!!!! Now should be less than this. Because the sun goes down soon… I loved your crochet waves.I will make it too, but I should learn, because I haven’t done before waves… By the way I knitted socks with 5 sticks, I learned how to make 🙂 from youtube! I am grateful for this weekend, that we traveled to Baku and I hold my grandson in my arms at first time. He is three month old now. Thank you dear, Blessing and Happiness, love, nia


  2. I was reading your post with a smile on my face till I caught that alarming – 36C. I think I would pass on our coffee date next week 😉 It’s insanely cold, Colline.
