Hard to get up this morning!
We stopped at the Farmer's Market briefly this morning to get James some chicken salad and buy a dessert. The Capra Gia folks had two little white kids with them. They sniffed at hands and even tried to suck on fingers; they must be just weaned. Finally little Blue Collar was bored and lay down to sleep. Little Orange Collar didn't like this and kept pawing him to get up. Blue Collar held out for a good five minutes before just giving in and getting back to his feet. We had ample time to watch them because a train came ambling through town, separating us from the truck. It did speed up after a while, but it definitely was not highballing its way anywhere.
Then a pleasant ride through Villa Rica Road to the Butlers for a pleasant morning of conversation. Juanita was there, looking pale but on her feet (her C-Diff had recurred). We got an update on Lin's eye problem. John and Oreta brought shepherd's pie for lunch. And I had my spring hair trim.
We had to stop at Kroger on the way home (for the stuff we forgot last night) and then bring the stuff home to put away, and then we had a couple of hours to do something fun.
Well, we went to the bookstore, of course. No chance of finding a March "Best of British" yet, but James did get a "Good Food." I was actually looking for a magazine that the BBC was putting out called "Britain 1914," hoping Barnes & Noble might have it, but no luck on that. However, just perusing the "literature and essays" shelves, I found a book I had to have, coupon or no coupon: Fic: Why Fanfiction is Taking Over the World. Then I went to sit with James in the cafe for a while and enjoyed the jazz they were playing.
We had potlucks for supper and watched two specials on GPB, one about Britcoms and one about British costume drama. Not even one flash of a scene from Flambards. Booooo! Then we watched programs stacked up on the DVR: Too Cute with miniature poodle, Samoyed, and Chessy puppies; Flipping Boston, and This Old House with someone from Deadliest Catch on. Now watching The Incredible Dr. Pol.
