nine days gone...

a week and two days since I last was here
but as I am fully aware of how few people read what I write
it's OK...
I spent the past few days propped up in front of the TV
having one of the best viewing times ever
ever ever ever...
our cable company had a 
yes it's a word
well now it is
they opened up all the channels and let us indulge in gluttony of the viewing kind

I chose to watch
"Game of Thrones"
30     ......       episodes
I loved every second of every minute of every hour of every day that I watched this lavish spectacle unfold before my eyes..
I have heard the buzz and praise it has received over the years but have never seen it as we don't have

It was like the ocular version 
of books on tape
I averted my eyes and held my breath the first few episodes
 when the gore and horror
flashed across the screen
but then I got used to it
and just let it be what it was
graphic depiction of the violence and horror and evil
 that only men can do to each other

I had to take breaks
 of course
 and I did
(I've never cleaned and cooked so fast
I didn't dust...
dusting takes too long
 and the laundry wasn't always folded perfectly!!!!!)

but I couldn't wait to get back to 
the next chapter and find out 
if that little shit of a King
 had had his face slapped 
had been sent to bed without his supper!!!!! 

We don't have HBO as I said and I don't think we'll be getting it
 just so I can watch one programme
 once a week
 for 10 weeks
I've had my fill for now and will wait until they have another

as I can't just sit and watch anymore
I made all those little doilies 
and the bigger ones too
I'm not sure why!!!

and it's a very gloomy Monday Monday here today
...rainy days and Mondays always get me down...
so imagine 
a rainy Monday!!!


see you when I see you

I saw the pattern for those little doilies in the first picture on Pinterest and copied the pattern a few days ago. Yours turned out great! All of them are so dainty and pretty. I love the binge-watch shows. I did that with Downton Abbey because we missed it. I think it was more fun watching for hours upon hours as long as we wanted to. See ya.

It may be gloomy ~ but your silent swam gliding thru the slate gray water & your softer than soft crochet makes for a beautiful day.
