I'm late to post because of hard times. I strained my feet three weeks ago and I had so much pain that I couldn't walk. But I would like to show the cake I made for my daughter in August. It was a nut cake. I'm suspect to say but everybody loved it.

I also stopped my wool blanket for my daughter. I've started sewing the squares tough.

Yesterday I watched the film Mr. Holmes. I have been expecting to watch it for months. I love it. The actors are great and Ian McKellen  is wonderful! So,what kind of  films do you like? I like comedies, romance and sci-fiction. We enjoy watching 《Murdoch Mysteries  》and it is great! It was on a time t there were  no mobiles, computers, laptops or modern appliances.  So why do we like it?  How about you?

We are in spring in Brazil but it is still too cold.

I love puns and I think this one is very funny! There are ones that I don't understand.

Wishing you a lovely week.

  1. I'm sorry you strained your foot and I hope it is less painful now as it takes a while to recover. I see you have been doing a lot of knitting, baking and watching movies. Mr. Holmes is a good one - well acted. I have been reading more Conan Doyle stories about Sherlock Holmes recently. Keep warm if you can and have a good week.

    1. Thank you Linda! It took long to be good but I can walk better.I love detective stories and we are watching Murdoch's mysteries.There are no mobiles, Internet, television but we really love it. I love watching Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch. He is wonderful!
      Thank you.
