Spring is for nerds

I've been having a bit of a fling. With spring. While fall is my favorite season, I must admit that spring does have its fine qualities. And though this particular spring has been busier than most, I won't hold that against it.

Up at school, the girls are all abuzz about graduation...

And at home, I've been all abuzz about new furniture. That's right, the Hoosier is here!

Isn't it lovely?

Sigh. I'm such a sucker for hardware. I bought it from a woman on Craigslist who owned it for years and years and loved it dearly. I can't wait to give it an equally long run in my home!

I've also been all abuzz over MI-5 (aka Spooks for any Brits reading). Can I take a moment to geek out over that? I've been watching the 6th season on KERA. I must admit, I initially started watching just for Rupert Penry-Jones, but now I'm just straight hooked. Every episode, I'm on the edge of my seat. Here's a clippy-clip from an earlier season. Featuring Mr. Penry-Jones of course.

I'll probably end up renting them all eventually. Maybe over the summer..

So yeah, spring. It has a few things going for it. Flowers and such. Babies and sunshine. Patio drinking. Enjoy it while you can. It'll be 100 degrees before we know it.

And one more quick plug for another sign of spring. The Etsy Dallas Spring Bash! It's next Saturday, May 1. Be there or be square, nerds!

They've been showing Spooks on your PBS? You're lucky. I can never find it. I've been on a UK kick since Ought Ten began. I hear the BBC is considering ending it and some of its other longer running series soon.

You got your Hoosier! It is rather beautiful, and I can't think of anyone who will treasure it more than you. :)

Don't think baby will be here before May 1, so you prob don't have to worry about the ETSY initial.
