Thoroughly enjoyable reading! Your cherry tree will probably always have sour cherries. Most do. Those are baking cherries! Yum! Have a great day, doll.


I think you are right. We have a large Rainier cherry tree in the yard but these are tart. We are nearly ready to pick.


Ah, Brideshead. So good. You meander all over the place and then suddenly all is eclipsed by the brilliant, shining, beautiful Truth. I have the 'hangover' effect after Les Mis and am reluctant to let go and dive into something else. I just want to wallow. Congrats on your new superpower. Would love to see some of your clothing makeovers. And cherry pie, dear lady. Cherry pie! What a delightful find.


My 14 year old can pretty much quote most of Brideshead. It is by far her most favorite book. The movie (the older version with Jeremy Irons is pretty much the book word for word! It is splended, Catholic, and beautiful. It, too, leaves you thinking for days. I revisit it at least once a year!
So many favorite quotes from the book that the family uses almost weekly! :)
We argue over who our favorite character is.... as they are all fantastic, well with the exception of Anthony Blanche and Boy Mulcaster. Oh, and what a bore Charles's father is! We all agree that we love Cordelia. Her quote towards the end of the book/film, "No one is ever holy without suffering" is one that hits home. One that so few understand. Oh, my how our house loves Brideshead! I haven't visited your site in quite some time. What a treat!

Word of Caution: Do not watch the newer version of the film...It is trash.
