Quick update...

Hi everyone :) Hope you're all having a good weekend. Ours has been rather soggy, though the rain seems to have stopped for now and the sun has even peeked through!

Sean's vacation started Friday and continues till next Sunday, so I'll likely be on line a lot less during that time. Especially as we'll be in Vancouver for a couple of days.

I did, however, find a really cool tidbit in The Times of London from January 1, 1794, something I'm going to use in my ms. Research can be so much fun. Of course, if any of you out there know anything about the Temple of Flora in London (near Westminster) during the late 18th Century, please let me know. I don't have access to any of my London books right now and can't find anything about it on the web. Lots about the Temple of Flora at Stourhead, Wiltshire, but not the one in London. *sigh*.

I'll be updating my house blog after I finish here, so if you're curious about the progress, hop on over there.

Have any of you seen The Matador? We watched it last night and thought it was pretty good. LOVED Pierce playing a completely different type of character.

Happy Sunday!

We tried to watch The Matador and didn't make it past the first few minutes.

I love seeing the photos of your house. It's getting closer to being done all the time!

Have a great vacation with hubby!

The house is looking great! I was looking at the pixs on facebook. You must be getting excited.

Where did you find the info from the London Times? Is there a website?? I've been trying to dig up some info other than the dry stuff you get out of books for the early Victorian era.

Wow, the house is getting so close to being done! It looks amazing.

And we LOVED The Matador. Laughed like drains, as they say in Ireland, at the scene where Pierce tries to teach Greg Kinnear the business in a stadium.
