Well the temperature is 99 degrees and we just came inside our front porch painting project. We've been working for about an hour or so, then coming inside, drinking ice cold water, and cooling off. It's shady where we're working and we have a fan on, but it's still 99 degrees and very humid. We feel like we're making progress though, a little at a time. That's about all that we can do in this stifling heat.
We started watching a good movie on tv last night. We've been seeing advertisements for The Pillars of the Earth. It's a mini-series set in 12th century England. It's playing now on the AMC channel. It's pretty good and we're hooked.
I set it up on Tivo, and it had already recorded about 5 episodes, most of which were duplicates, and I didn' t know which was the first episode. I checked on Netflix and was surprised to find it in available for instant streaming and since we have a Roku player we can watch it there. That way I know I am watching it in the right order. If you have Netflix you can watch it through your computer, Tv, Roku player, or Wii player. Our preferred way is through the Roku player, but any of these ways work just fine.
So if you get a chance try this mini-series. It's has some interesting characters and a very good story line. In fact, I'm about ready to catch episode 3.
