A further indication of our brighter spring days: We've had enough sunshine lately to generate dramatic shadows in the dining room, and liven up our sparkly hanging ornament, a gift to Dave from our friend Kellee in Michigan.
Mary and Jesus, who prop open the door in our garden-ornament rendition of Michelangelo's Pietà, also appreciate the sunshine.
Yesterday was a whirlwind at work, between checking in all the books returned after the students' long weekend, checking out replacements and photographing more "ideal bookshelves," a project that continues today and probably all this week. Along with various other miscellaneous tasks.
Last night Dave and I started watching the original "Brideshead Revisited" miniseries, with Jeremy Irons. Seeing how much Dave liked "Downton Abbey," I thought he might be into "Brideshead," especially given the gay subtext -- and I hadn't seen it in years so I was happy to watch it again. The jury's still out on whether Dave approves.
