We all know it’s the little touches that make a house a home, right? MHC West will never be the same as my real home, but I have added a few little things that cozy this place up. Some are things I’ve bought or brought from home, others are from my sweet friends.
My ribbon board: I bought 2 of them last year and took one home. Since I’m in the same apartment, the other was still here. You can see notes and cards from friends and family, my 39 squares project, Elyse’s wonderful clothespin, and some prize ribbons.
:: I finished reading Anne of Green Gables on the Nook and am now reading Anne of Avonlea. Like many of you, I saw the television series based on these books and own the DVDs. When I’m reading, I hear the voices of Megan Follows and Colleen Dewhurst in my head. I wrote about this last year, but I’ll say it again for those of you who might not have been reading this blog at the time. I had the great good fortune to work with Megan Follows several years ago. She was in a production of The Sea Gull right here in this theater. I don’t talk about these things often, but I’ve worked with a lot of well known actors. I think I was most excited to meet Megan. When we had our first work session, I said that I hoped she didn’t mind but I was a huge fan of her work in that series – that she must hear that all the time. She immediately said that she didn’t mind at all. She never tired of hearing how powerful that series was for so many. Megan was a delight. She was all grown up with children of her own but she’ll always be Anne, won’t she?
:: I had the strangest dream last night. I’m a big Gregory Peck fan. I was lucky enough to hear and see him in person when he was doing his one man show. He had the most glorious, deep, resonant voice. In this dream, there were several people in one room. We were all crying – were we in mourning? I don’t know. Suddenly, Gregory Peck came in the door. He was wearing a checked flannel shirt and was as handsome as you might imagine. I hoped he would come up to me. He did. He leaned down to speak in my ear. And out of him came the most nasal, high-pitched, southern twang you’ve ever heard. He might as well as been a cast member on Hee Haw. And then I woke up.
Aren’t dreams fascinating???
