Last night, Farmer Dad took Princess over to her friend's to swim
and eat dinner, and I was left to my own devices.
First, I pulled out an old Blue Oyster Cult cd and, after damaging the cats hearing,
I settled down with a cup of tea and some light tomato sandwiches to watch
the movie Miss Potter, based on the author's life.It was very pretty to watch, and I loved
the way they showed her illustrations coming to life,
but I did feel like they left something important out.
I know it's a lot to expect them to really cover her in depth in the space of
an hour or so. It was lovely to see a glimpse of her world.
This morning Princess and I watched it together. She lost interest in the movie
once she was an adult and they had "all the talking", but she picked up her Peter Rabbit book,
and went off to "draw".
I of course sat through the entire movie again, because it is so beautiful.
Now I sit here wondering if cleaning out the ice maker will do the trick, or should I call the appliance repair man
now to make an appointment for Monday. I found one old ice cube tray and filled it, but I need ice.
Is it too pathetic that I can barely deal with the very idea of getting through a day without my ice maker?
