Happy Valentines Day!

Well, I've just got the sweetest man around. Am so thankful for that! I was on my little Barbara Gaskill round-up addiction, having just watched Cranford and Wives and Daughters. I decided that when I got around to it, I'd try and see if I could find her North and South on Netflix.

Low and behold I find our latest netflix in the mail yesterday, North and South. I know that I was not the one who ordered it, and I didn't even know Dave knew about it. What a sweetie. He knew how much I enjoyed the first two films, and looked up Barbara Gaskill and discovered the North and South series and ordered them in secret.

This morning I woke up to find a lovely card and FOUR new books!!!!!! Mary Barton, Ruth, Wives and Daughters, and North and South. Someone knows his gal to a tee! I'd never read any of them, nor heard of Barbara Gaskill until Cranford. I might not get anything done for awhile now that I've got these books to dive into.

Unfortunately, Dave has to work today, but the sun is shining, the sky is blue, and I have all day to do nothing but sit on my fat derriere (sp?) and read! I'm a lucky girl!


  1. Sounds like a perfect day to me! :-)
    Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. I think you'll enjoy North and South, I know I did.A perfect flick for any kind of day at any time.
    Your Sophie is a sweetheart.
