A Day of Dickens

~ Our Mutual Friend above

Labor Day is usually in our case, spent working on some sort of project that needs to be finished, but after spending most of the weekend working and working, I reached a point yesterday that I couldn't work anymore. Well, mentally that is. No inspiration, no humming in my heart as I worked, just plodding drudgery. So I told Benjamin that I needed to have me a day of Dickens and only Dickens. He smiled and said that I could indulge :) And I did! And Oh how delightful it was! I first watched Martin Chuzzlewit and then Our Mutual Friend. I really want to read the books now. It had been so long since I had sat down to watch a movie and it was delightful. Today I feel refreshed and inspired to pick up my work again with a song in my heart and continue my tasks set before me. 

I hope everyone had a lovely Labor Day weekend.
 Much love to all :)

I have never read or watched either of those, I will have to find them at the library. Isn't wonderful how a great story can refresh one's spirit!

Ooh now I wana watch Our Mutual Friend. The picture looks so lovely :)

I'm so glad you liked watching Martin Chuzzlewit, I was sad it was over.

I love the way you set a prose.

"No humming in my heart, just plodding drudgery."

My sweet friend, I am praying for a song in your heart and energy for your day!

Love you!
