Gentle Friends it was a cold and overcast weekend - with sporadic rainy periods!! A very typical by the Bay wintry two days.
I hope those that are watching got to catch the First instalment of Season Three of Downton Abbey. One of our PBS channels ran a Season Two marathon all day leading up to the premier of Season Three at 9 PM. I really enjoyed it last nights 2 hour preimier and look forward to lots and lots of O'Brien machinations!!
We ran around to a few Thrift/Consignment Stores Saturday morning, there wasn't much that I was interested in.... but, I did find these two books...
As you remember I collect different copies of "A Christmas Carol" and this "Where's Waldo" type book is one I had never seen, I also found a nice edition of "She was Nice to Mice" a book I have always liked.
On Friday I got my new phone - now, you know me, I do not like change or new things. For instance... back in the day I fought the coming of CD's, and hung on to my records like life preservers. New technology is NOT my thing, never has been, never will be....
However, I have been fighting a loosing battle with Rico for a few years about me getting a new phone. I was fine with my really old phone but he thought I should get a new phone.
I like my old phone (On the right) Yes, I know the back stopped staying on a loooong time ago, and I have been keeping it on with tape.... and yes, I know the battery doesn't hold but a partial day's charge, but I am used to it and do not need a some crazed gadget ridden new phone.
The inevitable happened, I had to buckle under and "upgrade" to a slim I4 phone. I spent a good part of the weekend playing with all the things this new phone can do - and it has way too many gadgets and bells and whistles for my taste, but I suppose I'll get used to it like everything else "new and improved."
I am still stitching green grass, and will not bore you with another photo of that never ending area!!
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
