I didn't as much go somewhere as I was consumed by somewhere. It was really hard to come back to real life. I got back about 11 p.m. last night and I'm a little lonely today.
A lot happened while I was there. There was a wedding. There were babies born. There were deaths. There were schemes. And stubbornness. And lying. And love. And hate. And successes. And failures. And injustices. And redemption. And traditions. And more love. And finally, a shocking death.
Many (most) of you have already been there. I was a late adopter.
That's what I do. Adopt late sometimes.
Anyway. As I said, most of you have been there already. And you always come back telling all about it. But I ignored you. I was probably secretly envious.
That will never happen again.
Because I have been to Yorkshire.
Thank goodness Xfinity had Watchathon Week! As soon as I could I packed and left all reality for my visit. It was a short trip. Only three days.
You see I had never seen an episode of Downton Abby and I didn't want to start watching any of it until I had the time/opportunity to start at the very beginning.
So I did. I Started at the beginning, and
It was wonderful.
But now I'm back. And I miss my friends.
I want to know how Mary is doing. I feel bad for her loosing her husband and all. Maybe I should bake her a cake. I have some great recipes. Do you think she would appreciate something baked in a mason jar? Or would they find it gauche?
I really want to have Mr. Bates and Anna over for dinner. They are the kindest people I know. I want to take Mr. Bates to see my orthopedist. I'm sure he could help him.
I would love to cater their next outdoor event. I would serve this, or this, or this... and maybe these. I bet they would fancy my cooking.Most people of high standing and good taste do.
Oh, I forgot about these. They might be scandalous!
Do you think I could somehow score that fab kitchen table that the servants gather 'round for meals and such?
So I'm going to make something wonderful today! How about you?
I Gotta Try That!
