Today has been a laze about day for all of us. I would use the excuse that we are recovering from camping. But the truth is that we are just being lazy. However, I think everyone needs a lazy day from time to time. Teen has been off with a friend and Tween and Tall have been dividing their time between playing the Wii and running the doll preschool that is so well organized I could take lessons from it.
I have been doing the camping laundry. (It is amazing how much clothing the girls get wet trying to catch fish with small nets all weekend.) But while things have been washing and drying I have indulged myself on a marathon of online videos.
For some time now, a friend has told me that I should watch PBS's Masterpiece Classic, Downton Abbey. She loves it. To be honest, I didn't really think it was up my alley. I am more of a sci-fi fan. I would be more likely to watch a marathon of Dr.Who than anything else. But while flipping through Netflix one insomniac night, I came across season one of Downton Abbey and was immediately hooked.
Keep in mind, I like aliens, temporal anomalies, and dystopian societies. I never watch soap operas or dramas in general. So the fact that I became hooked on a story about disappearing aristocracy, backstabbing footmen, and illicit affairs in early 20th century England is rather surprising. But hooked I am.
And now I have to go. The season finale of season 2 is waiting for me at PBS.
