The cows have to eat year round so hay in the barn is a good feeling. So are a full freezer and a good woodpile.
I've been so busy cleaning up the garden and now helping John get the Gran House ready for our new tenant that I haven't managed much in the way of blog posts. By the end of the day, I just want to stretch out and read or watch another installment of some British mystery.
We just finished up the Inspector Lynley series. I'd read almost all of them and it took a while to adjust to the television characters. I found Lynley rather annoying and John really hated Helen -- the first one. When a new actress came in mid series, he liked her better. (I didn't. Too perky.)
We probably wouldn't have finished the series if it hadn't been for Havers. We both liked her a lot-- she was a nice antidote to Helen and Lynley's vaporings and angst.
