Royal Fun

It wasn't that hot yesterday, but hot enough to tempt me to take to the sofa, under a fan and near the TV. Mom and I spent the day watching most of The Tudors, Season 2. We found it on Showtime (thank you, Dee). During the heat, we powered through most of Season 2. What fun! Okay, let me clarify. What fun to watch, but man, I wouldn't want to be a woman living and trying to survive in those times. I fear I wouldn't have kept my head for long.

Hi Kim!
I suggest you go see the Impressionist show at SAM now - a great way to spent a few hours in the air conditioning!

Oh thank you so much for the links. Just the perfect thing to take my mind off other stuff.
