They can make me hate or love someone in the blink of an eye.
I would NEVER have imagined I would say this...
But one of the most lovely things I have ever heard in my life about marriage and love was said by Bates to Anna this week.
Anna fears she can not have children. More than fears she is certain of it and VERY depressed about it. She thinks she has destroyed Bates' whole life by not being able to carry a child to term.
Finally Bates looks gently at her and says,
"To me we are one person, and that person can't have children."
So beautiful I could cry. And I did a little to be sure.
Other highlights in this quiet and intimate episode....
~Mary offers to help Anna and lists her own many mistakes!
~Carson being mean to Thomas makes me sad and I feel sorry for Thomas.
~Mrs Hughes being snarky about Mary makes me think less of Mrs. Hughes.
~Edith ruins lives by being selfish. I'm mad at Edith.
~The farmers wife needs to snap out of it. I'm frustrated with her too.
~The fact that Mr. Drew needs to move is beyond awful.
~Can they not see this is the same thing as Daisy's father-in-law being displaced.
~Will they give farm to Daisy's father in law?
~Still not happy about it.
~ I don't know what is going on with the hospital.
~I like that the women are making headway in the running of things.
~I don't like the dresses but I like the hats.
What were your impressions of Sunday night's episode?
My sister Janet and I made Italian Beef on the same day. We didn't know it. We were chatting/texting and I told her how good my house smelled and she instantly sent me a picture of her crock pot with the same things in it. How weird is that?
Playing catch with a snowball.
She is an excellent catcher!
It was time for a new tote. Katie had this made for me. I love it.
Sometimes at the grocery store I sign my name Donna Boo.
Those electronic pens are so awful to write with I like to shorten it up.....and it gives me a little thrill.
Oh! I watched a movie some of you might light. (I've watched a ton that you would not like...)
It is the famous story "Far from the Madding Crowd."
I liked the actors and the story and the look of the film. It's available on Netflix for free...and possibly elsewhere.
What does Madding Crowd mean?
That's all for now.
