It is supposed to snow tonight and tomorrow. Maybe an inch. Maybe six inches. I was down to one library book. Granted I have whole shelves of purchased and unread books. But I still had to make a trip to the library. They had books waiting for me.
A library friend recommended a British TV series called Doc Martin. We have been ordering the series, a few discs at a time. And the next few episodes were waiting there, too. I told our British son-in-law that we were enjoying the series and he called it "twee".
I had to look that up to be sure of the definition.
: affectedly or excessively dainty, delicate, cute, or quaint
The movie was a bit twee for my taste.
Origin of TWEE
baby-talk alteration of sweet.
Well, we don't see it as all that "twee". It is about a London surgeon who develops an aversion to blood and becomes a small town doctor in a small British village. With all the inherent characters you probably wouldn't REALLY find there. OK. Maybe it is a bit twee. But it is twee with a bit of bite and it has made Lee consider renting a cottage in an English village.
So now I have a few books by I am really looking forward to reading, in case we have no power. Two of which are new books from favorite authors that I have been waiting for patiently. And some TV viewing in case there is power. And a good excuse to take the day off. If school children can have a snow day, why can't we?
I am declaring a snowcation for tomorrow!
