“What is a weekend?”
– Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham
I spent the weekend playing with Catriona and Bear (who were in town from Florida), scouring the local library’s annual book sale and donation drive, cleaning, shopping for a birthday present for my niece and a just-because present for Marie, baking, and watching Downton Abbey. I have thrown up my hands in despair at all of the characters besides the indomitable Maggie Smith’s Dowager Countess. I have decided that I am going to be her when I’m old. Although I have heaps of other characters and personalities to try on before I get there.
