1. Downton Abbey
Marvin and I finally made it to a showing of "our story". We say that with humor because our grandmothers called their soap operas "their stories". My uncle used to tease my Grandmother Tankersley that she prayed for the Horton family on Days of Our Lives.:) Downton Abbey was our soap opera that we watched faithfully every Sunday night at nine pm. The movie was good. I will warn you that there are some scenes that are not my favorites but I had heard about them in advance. If we prayed for Soap Opera characters we should pray for Thomas on Downton Abbey. Maggie Smith was a delight as always. Julian Fellowes writes the best one liners for Granny. A new Crawley family member was introduced. Matilda was played by Imelda Staunton who is Carson's wife in real life. You may also remember her as the very mean Hogwarts teacher, Delores Umbridge. The main part of the movie was about a visit from the King and Queen. The Downstairs members of the staff were brilliant in dealing with the King's servants who arrived with him. Overall a very enjoyable two hours. I will say that on the High Def big screen, you could see every line and wrinkle on the characters that you miss on the television screen.
2. Le Creuset Dupes from Aldis
I grabbed this new Christmas scent set of Mrs Meyers at Target the other day. They smell so good. I went back the next day to get more of the hand soap and the shelves were empty. I was surprised to see these on the shelves so early this year.
4. Bedroom Doughbowl
I decided to rotate some of my stitching among my dough bowls as I am accumulating so many small items. I went for more serene for the bedroom....these pumpkins look so cute all alone that I left them that way! I cannot remember where I purchased these fabric pumpkins...maybe Ross.
5. The BibleMobile.
Marvin and I spotted this RV when we were coming home from Landon's soccer game on Saturday. The vanity tag read James 4:8. This is something you do not see every day!
