Pk is outside in the garage finishing up a swift for me. It's a table top model made of cedar. It smells good and the grain is just beautiful. I'm not sure how much longer he'll last out there since it's actually cold today. We've had such moderate weather that it's difficult to remember that it's winter.
We went to see Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (movie made from John Le Carre novel) on Wednesday. It was sloooooowwwwww. I think a dialogue box in the beginning reminding people what life was like in the late 70's with the cold war going on might have helped somewhat. There wasn't much action, it's a talking spy movie. Peter Kevin liked it but admitted it would have made a better television show and really didn't need to be a large screen movie.
Friday we went to Winterthur. It's one of the Du Pont family holdings in Delaware that have been turned into a museum/cultural center. Another one is Longwood Gardens. This family seems to have owned most of Delaware at one point and their name is on lots of things in our part of the country. They were big into philanthropy.
But, Winterthur. (for some reason, loading photos is a long process this morning so I'll do the best I can). We got up Friday morning and first headed for the post office to mail some sunglasses to DrK (she ordered them and they don't ship internationally) and to send some needles back to signature needle arts. Pk gave me some more dpns and I wanted to exchange sizes.
