FOR TODAY: It's My Simple Womans Daybook Day!
I am thinking... the day went way too fast today. Guess that's because I took Ginny to the cardiologist this morning.
I am thankful... that my friend Ginny's stress test went well today
In the kitchen... Nothing much planned so perhaps we'll have Stouffer's come and fix something.
I am wearing... white jeans and a purple paisley top
I am going... take a break from the entry & go to Joyce's for coffee
I am reading... Put "The Jane Austen Book Club" on hold this week so I could read "Heaven is for REAL" by Todd Burpo. It's a little boy's astounding story of his trip to heaven and back.
A favorite quote for today... "Life moves on, things change, we change, time moves faster, we move slower, we may eat less but still gain weight and try to smile, rain or shine! " Millie Garfield
One of my favorite things... mini-series
Encore is doing mini-series each week. They may have been doing this all along but it's new to me and I truly enjoyed the one that ended on Saturday evening. It's called Titanic: Blood & Steel. Here's a small summary of the 12 part mini-series. I think the new mini is Gulliver's Travels this week.
The series follows the lives of the people who made the Titanic: from the workers who built it to the rich financiers. Dr. Mark Muir, an American Engineer - metallurgist and former Irish immigrant, convinces American tycoon J.P. Morgan to hire him for the biggest shipping project in the world, the construction of the RMS Titanic at Belfast's Harland and Wolff shipyard.
While working there, Mark falls in love with Sofia Silvestri, an Italian immigrant. However, during the construction of the Titanic, tensions rise between the lower-class Catholic and the rich Protestant Elite. More setbacks stall the construction: Harland and Wolff wanting to save costs and use cheaper materials, the workers wish to form a Union, the women suffrage movement in the UK, and the battle between pro-Ireland and pro-Unionist groups. Mark attempts to deal with it while trying to escape his past.Join us by clicking HERE
