How I Spend Cold Winter Days

On Sunday I spent 6 hours watching The Tudors Season 2 on Netflix. I adore learning things about the Tudor era and particularly Henry VIII. I love reading historical fiction about this time period so I was pumped to get hooked on this show last year. I know it's the second season but I don't get Showtime so I have to wait for it to come out on DVD to see it. I still have to watch the last three episodes (Queen Anne's days are numbered--yikes) but I have to say that even though I know how the story goes, it's riveting to watch. Have you seen it? If not, rent season one. It's that good. I promise.While I love spending hours watching TV, I hate to just sit there with nothing else to do. I always need some sort of project. So during the Tudors marathon, I worked on a pink baby blanket (for my Great Aunt--she is a foster mother)
I also decided I needed to make a little frame for Valentine's Day. I guess watching King Henry order beheadings makes me feel crafty.

Where ever did you learn to multi-task? You must of had a great role model at some point in your life!

Good Work Fred.

OH, I'm glad to hear it's good (Tudors)cause I heard it was sort of the payback to HBO for their series Rome (which, by the way, I was completely obsessed with), so I'll have to make it a point to start watching this. Beheadings and crafts do go hand in hand, indeed.
