We got home yesterday morning and one of the first things I saw when I walked in the door was a book that was due the day before. Oops. So once we were all awake, dressed, and fed (at 4:30 in the afternoon, don’t judge), we moseyed on over to the library to return it. I also let the boys play around a pick a few books while I sat and watched for 20 minutes or so. Because, why not? They were being great and it sure beat trying to chase them around the playground.
When we checked out our books I was informed we had a DVD on hold. A surprise! I love surprises. It was volume 2 of Downton Abbey, a BBC miniseries. A friend introduced us to it and we are pretty hooked. There are only 6 episodes, and as of last night we are half way through them. Who knew that the lives of the aristocracy of the English countryside and their household help could be so intriguing?
My recommendation is that you snag it on Netflix or your library or wherever you go to find cheap home entertainment as soon as you can.
