A long week, a busy weekend and here it's nearly the end of January. Time flies, whether you are having fun or not. I haven't been online much lately, not least because our connection is so slow right now.

I've been walking nearly every day, at least 25 minutes, a daily Watch&Walk, while we plow through 10 seasons of Friends. But now we've had to take a break and start watching Downton Abbey Season 4 because when we went to start season 6, we discovered that the first disc was missing from the box set. And we won't be able to get the DVD from the friend we borrowed Friends from until Wednesday at the earliest.

We picked up DA4 at a 50% off sale this past Saturday. Martin thought I was crazy because I wanted to get up early and get there when they opened...the sale was at the local DVD chain Hemmakväll, 50% off all movies and box sets! In addition to DA4, we got Mad Men 6, Sherlock 1 and 8 movies. But I had to laugh, when we got home and looked at our loot: 2 superhero movies, 1 zombie flick, 3 Disney replacements for my old VHS collection, the last Harry Potter that we were missing and Looper. Not exactly high-brow. Heh.

We watched Looper on Saturday and really enjoyed it. Time travel movies make my head hurt, though.

I've painted the plant stand that my mom and I bought nearly 2 years ago. Bought white spray paint and gave it a thorough spritzing but it wasn't enough to cover the original black so I had to go buy another can today. Anders will probably kill me for getting white paint on his tarp. That was project number 6. One more spray ought to do it, and then it's taking its planned place in the bathroom with some pretty greenery on it.

It's freezing cold here, in the minus temps, and snowing non-stop. It's all powder, though, so it just blows about and looks pretty. Anders is in the Czech Republic skiing with work buddies until Wednesday and he called me tonight to ask if I was still considering taking the school's winter break week off when the kids are out of school. "Weeeell, yes, but I haven't talked to my boss yet," I said, "Why?"

"Because they have rooms available here at this resort!" he said. Heh. I think I let him down when I said skiing wasn't really what I had in mind. :) I'm not sure what I have in mind, actually. I still have to finish planning the Ireland trip for the end of summer, after all!
