|I wonder who...|
|All Nice and Tidy|
With so many days of snow and more coming, John is keeping busy. Believe it or not, he's happiest when he can clear the yard without resorting to his truck and plow. Sometimes I help. More like sometimes he gives me a little pile of snow to clear as he would if I were a kid and then he gives me a little more when I get that accomplished. At least, we're out in the fresh air enjoying a bit of the day together.
With so much down time from snowstorms, I've been following the recommendations for good programs that I find here there and everywhere: from Vicki at Turkey Feathers who shared her love of the Victorian Garden and Kitchen (now regrettably removed from You Tube) to Brenda at Coffee Tea and Me who shares often about her favorite books and movies and BBC series. Having just finished up watching North and South on Brenda's recommendation, I was eager to move on to the "next thing." (North and South is available in a number of places. I watched Episode 1 on You Tube and the final episodes on TV.com with my Netflix account.)
Yesterday, I was visiting Laurie at I Love a Cloudy Day and she mentioned Wartime Farm, which I have not been successful at finding even on Netflix. There are some episodes on You Tube (here's Episode 1). While looking for Wartime Farm, I accidentally fell upon this hour-long gem about the British War time kitchen—lots of historical tidbits and good old-fashioned tips for working with very little—which takes us right back to Vicki's love of The Victorian Garden/Kitchen series because it is part of that set.
If you wish, you may watch directly at You Tube *here.* For those of us snowed in, it's a pleasant way to spend an hour with feet up, sipping tea, and learning more about these moments from history. One gets an entirely new appreciation for the way things were and all the hard work.
Have you been watching any good period pieces that you might recommend?
