The weather outside made the walk to the University or to Starbucks unpleasant, so I spent the time knitting, listening to the radio and to already-downloaded audiobooks on my Ipod, and shoveling snow, and, oh yes,
watching Anno 1790, which I had read about last week on Kate Davies' blog and managed to acquire before our outage. I started off watching the first episode, but by Sunday it had turned into more of a binge as the intensity of the series kept ratcheting up. I also realized that the fact that it seemed to be snowing during most of the outdoor scenes, just as it was doing out my own window, made the series all the more realistic. Seriously, how could such a superb show have been cancelled just before the second season was about to be filmed?
Now our internet is back up and running and I'm getting caught up with e-mail, banking, etc. The second iteration of "Wheatsheaves" is more than half done, but you'll have to wait a while to see it.
