Weekend Work and Fun
OK, first of all, I don't even know if I can call it a weekend as it is only one day this week and I have to go in 4 hours earlier than normal tomorrow. We are short staffed and I agreed to cover. Despite that, I think we got a bit done. First, work stuff. We did more painting on our 10, yes 10, doors and 6 screen doors and are just about done. We also put a gallon of gray primer on the bedroom walls which will also be a a lovely shade of red, called Valspar Posh Red. Then we made time for some enjoyment. Our first natch of tomatoes was ripe and I made our favorite tomato, basil, garlic and olive oil bread dip to have with some french bread, and a glass of red wine.
Then I sat down to watch an episode of the mini-series of Middlemarch which was adapted from the George Eliot book. For those not yet fans, George Eliot is actually a woman, Mary Ann Evans, who took on the pen name of George Eliot when it was not yet appropriate for women to be authors. Couldn't stop until I finished the whole thing at 1 am just now...argh for work tomorrow!Finally, isn't this just the most beautiful china? I would love to take tea with George Eliot using this service. Would you like another biscuit?
