Let's dive in and see what is swimming around in Nana's mind!
1. I came home from Georgia with some sort of 24 hour bug. I am not sure if it was a bug or extreme exhaustion after a week of taking care of my sweetie but it laid me low over the weekend. I stayed on the sofa and in the bed but woke up this morning feeling fine. Maybe I just needed the rest.
2, How many of you are looking forward to the Bronte Sisters series on Masterpiece Theater on PBS? To Walk Invisible tells the story of the three Bronte sisters who lived a quiet life as a clergyman's daughters but sought for a life outside their humble home. Their dissolute brother, Branwell, also lives in the home. All three girls wrote novels...Charlotte wrote Jane Eyre, Emily wrote Wuthering Heights and Anne wrote The Tenant at Wildfell Hall. I am not familiar with Anne's book so I may have to check that one out at the library. I read a book about Charlotte years ago and if I remember correctly, Jane Eyre was published under a pseudonym because the public would not read a book written by a woman. The series calls the Brontes 'secret authors" so this was probably true for all of them. PBS brings us so many good British series. I am also waiting on the next season of Home Fires.
3. I am officially an old lady. Why? Ok, I will confess I wore thigh high hose to my Uncle Robert's funeral. I have heard all the stories about why panty hose are passe'. No one wears them anymore. Go bare legged! Please people, bare legs might look good on sweet young things but 62 year old pasty legs need some help. I forgot my panty hose and Mother told me she had a pair of hose she would give me. Well, I did not ask what kind they were and since I needed a pair, I took the package not realizing they were thigh highs. I had to laugh as I pulled them on. I remember my mother in law purchasing this kind for herself and her mother and me thinking, what in the world??? But ladies, after wearing them I can see the appeal. I doubt I will convert as I like the panty part that helps suck in and smooth all the bumps and bulges but don't knock thigh highs until you try them!
4. Today is our first meeting of the Glens Book Club. I have read the book, The Awakening of Miss Prim. I took some notes and underlined some passages so I think I am ready to participate. I love reading and I look forward to hearing what others thought about the book. Sometimes we all see things differently. Thanks to my friend, Susan for establishing the group.
5. I am enjoying the Daylight Savings Time. It helps me to get in all my steps each day. Last week with Audrey here, I did not reach my goal any day but I am going to jump back in this week. One thing I have learned as I have gotten older...if you do not reach your goals, don't give up. ( As my perfectionist self would have done years ago) Just get back on that horse and ride. Consistency is my goal now rather than perfection.
Time to get busy here at Nanaland. Steps were not the only thing that was neglected last week. Have a great day Blog Friends.
