OMG, to quote a friend, "Where are my ark building tools?". It has been pouring practically non-stop for the last two days. The Sunshine State can be a bit moody that way.
Between the weather and my mood (bleak of late), I have been sticking pretty close to home lately. I did make it out to meet the girls for KAL knitting yesterday. Kerri made an interesting observation, which I think could apply to a lot of us ("us" meaning knitters). She told me to keep knitting, said that she could see me visibly lighten when I was knitting but when I stopped, it was like the weight settled back on my shoulders.
Since Hubby hung around long enough this morning to take T2 to school, I decided to go back to bed. Since I could not get back to sleep, I treated myself to another episode of "Call the Midwife". I am so enjoying this show. It is in it's third (?) season. I don't know why it took so long to hit my radar. BBC series are usually top of my list. Anyway, now that I have discovered it, I am enthralled.
It is about a group of nurse midwives, living in a nursing convent, seeing to the medical needs of the poor in the depressed Poplar district of East London in the 1950's. However, with 80-100 babies being born each month, their primary work is delivering babies and pre/post natal care. One of the main characters even knits (the crazy one, hmm) which has an obvious appeal.
