I remember the first time I watched I, Claudius.  By the time Star Trek : the Next Generation was on, I did not think about it.  When I later saw I, Claudius again, it hit me that Patrick Stewart played Sejanus.  That was something.

She was baptized in the Orthodox church today. Glory to God! Though it still feels a bit strange to me.

My 9 year old said we need to get more icons so we can put them all over the house.  ;D

Last day of school, so I no longer have to deal with the husband's video lesson prep, or chase the young one around to do homework.

Sir Patrick Stewart's daily Shakespeare sonnet readings.
I have to say: I see them only when you re-share them, and it brightens my day also! (And it makes me want to re-listen to his narration of "The Last Battle," which was fantastic.)

I'm very happy that the algorithm plays ball and shows me each new video among the first items on my feed every morning. When he took a break over the last long weekend, I took the chance to run through the list on his page and repost any that I had missed. Fangirls gonna fangirl.:D

Teal, thanks to a quart-size paint sample. But now I have to buy new furniture. And more paint. 😁
Or maybe I could paint the existing furniture...

Finding a dead spider next to the bed is such a double-edged sword. It means a reduced chance of a spider crawling over me while I sleep. On the other hand, how dare it be in my apartment to begin with.

I'm okay with spiders in the house - fewer bugs around. No sharing beds or tables, though. They seem to agree.

At this time of year, they're weaving like crazy, and I can often walk into a room and see one hanging from the light fixture. Blowing lightly on them sends them up their thread again, so no need for violent evictions.

Every once in a while I clean out my closet and sell a bunch of stuff on ebay/craigslist. True, most of the money will go to very boring, adult things, but until then it's just nice pretending like I'm free to spend it as I please

I didn't find anything worth selling in today's bout of tidying up, but I did unearth my Pimp: The Backhanding card set. It's going to be a fun half-term break...

Me too this evening on way to Vespers! Flew right over front of vehicle, flying low.
Same here! Well, DL, not Vespers, but still. It was chasing some buzzards, then perched in a tree on the side of the road.
