Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.

The sock is beauteous!

Ok, so now I've added both seasons of Rome and The Tudors to my queue on Netflix. I really have to wonder if I'll ever get to watch all the movies I have on my list! But I put Rome up towards the top (and The Tudors, too ~ I remember wishing I had Showtime for this one, too).

Hugs, Jen

Give me a 3 day weekend any time! Wooee! I am so glad to be home some more. I do wish this MLK and Virginia's Lee Jackson King weekend stuff (Only in the south, and especially, only in Virginia) happened in February, or better yet, in March, when there are NO holidays. I could then have felt comfortable about taking a 4 day weekend. The only other county employees working yesterday were the police. I could have shut the library down, but it always seems to me that doing so 2 weeks after all the short weeks we had at Christmas is a bit much to ask people to endure. Especially one week before high school exams start. So I give all the folk who would otherwise work on Fridays (including me) one comp day to be taken later in the winter to make up for working on a state holiday.

I'll use mine on Tuesday, because that's Mama's birthday and I haven't seen her for a couple of weeks. I'll be working out a plan with sister today – maybe we'll get the parents together – maybe not. It's always iffy but I like to pack as much into each trip to see them as possible, without exhausting them.

But today is cloudy and cold and the weather dot com guys are calling for snow late in the afternoon. I am going to clean the house and then knitknitknitknitknit. Here are photos of the creativity project – my BSBSBS. This Brown Sheep yarn was so satisfying to knit with. The dye pattern is lovely. I think it looks good in a pattern that creates diagonals and in just plain stockinette stitch.

Here is the finished project.

And because I am not done yet with those Romans – here are some visuals.
Would you trust this man with your daughter?

And just how did HBO get THIS

(movie star Atia - looks like a Playboy pose to me.)

from THIS

(Macedonian Queen Atia)

Lawsee! I know a woman who has this exact bone structure - and she is very queenly. Hmmm.

Ain't Tee Vee fun?

Happy Saturday
