A little list of things currently making me smile:
- Free books — I just “won” my first two books through LibraryThing and am eagerly anticipating their arrival. I’m also having a great deal of fun randomly adding to my library from books that I own and books that I’ve read — it’s a pretty scattered combination at this point of library books borrowed and read, and stuff I actually own. When I tire of trolling the groups and people’s libraries, I review a couple of the things I’ve listed in my own. It’s fun and essentially no-pressure. I’m finding myself thinking about the fun I could have with a CueCat. 🙂
- Indian food — made two really yummy new-to-me recipes last night and had leftovers for lunch. So. Much. Yum.
- Miniatures — I used to collect them as a child, and made some too. I was poking around Etsy and found some things that lead me on a four hour trip down memory lane, reading some of my miniature design books and (kind of seriously) thinking about constructing a miniature building of some sort. I think I’d have a lot of fun with a miniature cake shop. Or green grocer. 😀
- Had a rough start to my morning and #2 came over, patted me on the shoulder, looked at me sympathetically and suggested I needed some coffee. Think he knows me well? 😉
- BBC costume dramas — watched North and South Saturday night. (Which, btw, stars “Mary” from the Torchwood episode “Greeks Bearing Gifts“.) Might watch Persuasion tonight.
- Sweeney Todd — watched this Friday night. How did I not know Angela Lansbury was Mrs. Lovitt in the original run? I love her stuff, but somehow this escaped me. Have both soundtracks on request from library. Can’t get “Worst Pies In London” out of my head — am hoping #2 doesn’t start parroting the lyrics back to me. He has a good ear for tunes from musicals — maybe someday I will get to be a stage mother. *glee*
