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?

If you like George Eliott and Anne of Green Gables, you should try to find "Cider with Rosie" by Laurie Lee and of course "The Mill on the Floss"

What a wonderfully busy weekend! {I say you can call a day a weekend...any time off: weekend. Count it.} Your room is going to look fabulous. 10 doors? I knew there were a bunch, but 10? Goodness. Love the china set. Yes, I'd take tea with you {and George Eliott for the matter}. Lovely day to you sissy!
