Happy Valentine's Day

Hope all of you are having a great Valentine's Day today!

I'm waiting on the arrival of Bryce Eleanor. Amelia and Chris are going to Dallas today for their annual pre-Oscar Night, Academy Award Nominee Binge. They try to see as many of the movies that they've missed that have been nominated for awards. Oscar Night is a big night in the Chandler household.I've been playing with embroidery again. It is what I do with my hands if I'm watching television. These have no purpose other than I find it a relaxing and enjoyable thing to do in the evening.Yesterday, I watched 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama, another Netflix documentary that was beautifully photographed and very interesting.


  1. talk about having a sweet valentine's day a weekend with baby bryce!

    happy valentine's day to you word for the day is the quechuan word shungo - it means from my heart to yours!

    have a great day.....

    I met my goal of seeing the 5 movies that are nominated for best picture...they were all excellent, the two that I think are particularly of b.p. quality in terms of story, character and cinemagraphic magic are the reader and the curious case - it will be interesting to see what wins....I hope all 5 do well in the various categories....and although I loved the guy who played the lead in the visitor (a movie that probably also could have been a best pic nominee) I'm rooting for sean penn as milk

  2. Well! I certainly had a nice Valentine's Day, thanks to a dear on-line friend and a surprise that came in the mail!! =-) =-) =-) Thanks, Jen, you sweetie pie =-) Hope you had a great day, too!

  3. I love your embroidery. Very beautiful. I love the colors!

  4. What a lovely way to spend the day! And thanks for the heads-up on the Dalai Lama film. Definitely one I'm interested in!

  5. Jim and I enjoyed that documentary thoroughly. Really love how often the Dalai Lama laughs.

  6. kimy - It was a nice Valentine's weekend!

    I thought they did a great job with The Reader. It is the only one I've seen!

    Debby - I hope you enjoy the book and the pillow cover!!

    Serena- Thanks! It keeps my hands busy!

    rian - The film had a lot on the background of Dalai Lama's childhood and the occupation by the Chinese. I really enjoyed it.

    ACey - His voice and his laugh are not what one expects. I loved his curiosity!


Good to hear from you!
