Grandsons, Knitting and a small candle
We have been enjoying the company of our oldest grandson Austin, (10 1/2 yrs old) for the last week, but he went home today. The youngest grandson Nicky, spent a week with us last month, he turned 7 yesterday. After they leave, the house has a stillness to it that is both comforting in it's "back to normal-ness" and lonely because it is so still now.
I have certain movies and recorded TV programs that I call my knitting shows. They are the ones that I know by heart since I have watched them so many times that I can enjoy them without having to watch every minute of them while I concentrate on the knitting project at hand. LOTR, Rosemary and Thyme among several others. But after posting in the "What's Cooking Tonight" forum that we had our version of the sausage sandwiches we heard about in the Tom Baker Dr. Who programs, I decided to dig out the 13 tapes we have of those episodes and start watching them again. I really need to knit myself a Dr. Who scarf now. Have any of you watched the episode of Monarch of the Glen that Tom Baker was in....I almost didn't recognize him.
I lit one of my homemade votive candles yesterday around 2 p.m. It was in a votive holder inside a cast iron pot in the kitchen and I forgot about it last night. It burned all thru the night and I didn't notice it until about an hour ago when I smelled something vaguely familiar in the kitchen and realized that little votive was still burning. Boy, I make really good candles. Most store bought votives burn for 6-10 hours this one is in it's 26th hour and still burning....just barely but still burning.

Aaahh old Doctor Who, classic! I think Jon Pertwee was the best. Must catch Rosemary and Thyme sometime as well. Have you seen a British sitcom called Keeping Up Appearences?
Oh, No....Tom Baker is the best. Just like Sean Connery is the absolute best James Bond. :)
>>> Randy and I have decided that if Richard ever did away with Hyacinth, no jury in the world would convict him.
