This Thursday is the weekly gathering of our Book Group.
We are reading this book for January...
By the time I got to page 3 I was hooked!

I'm only half way through the book because of the distractions...
watching this...

I gave David the First Season of Downton Abbey DVDs for Christmas.
I was advised to purchase the UK version as it is not edited. (Apparently the
Masterpiece Theater series is edited)
I also ordered Season Two which will be out in February

We both love British period drama and comedy.
Back in the 90's we were in LOVE with these girls...

We had a crusty French baguette with dipping oil as our side.
Yummy and hearty!!

OK-back to the Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Pie society..

Sounds like you are having a lot of enjoyment with everything. Distractions aren't all bad if you are having fun. :-) Although, I will agree, I get frustrated when I'm suppose to do something and Pinterest sucks me in. The soup sounds super yummy. Thanks for the link.

BTW, in case you didn't see it, the Angry Birds party post is up.

Looks like your year is starting out full of fun :)

It's going to rain in a bit--a good day for reading under a warm snuggly quilt---enjoy!!!
