nobody has to explain to you
which ‘pile of bricks’ this famous room is in!
tonight is the night!
the premier of the third season of downton abbey!!!
i don’t know why.
i love all things english. i simply do.
and the periods that these stories ~ rather THE story ~
of this english family takes place are my favorites.
romantic that i am ~
the costumes. the sumptuous rooms.
the eccentric characters.
the sheer beauty of it all . . .
and the dog isis
and the breathtaking music that is part of the setting ~
suffice to say i have been awaiting this night for some time.
i peeked ahead so i know what will happen.
and i shall not spoil it here.
but you’re in for a ride.
and now . . .
news about my own little ‘pile of bricks!’
the new apt i had picked out ~
well. that one fell through.
the lady occupying it won’t be out for many many more months.
i panicked just a little.
“where am i to go? what am i to do?”
“what’s to become of me?”
remember that ?
famous line from ‘my fair lady!’
my little 525 square feet of ‘bricks’
will now have
brand new carpet
and a big window (the other one didn’t)
and my new bricks will have a fireplace too!!!
i will also have a private balcony
and stairs to my apt that are totally private.
no one else to share.
it faces south. the window in it faces east.
it will be filled with my beloved light and fresh air.
i am delighted.
someone somewhere is looking out for me.
in case you’ve forgotten what the little pile of bricks looks like
here are two more shots of the
‘ model apartment ‘ with the apt complex furnishings.
can’t wait to move my own things into my very own!
and now . . .
going to pop some pop corn
and wait for downton abbey.
good grief charlie brown.
now THERE’S a pile of bricks!
til then old bean!
