Its a little known fact that the City and Country factions are both intense Northern Exposure fans. INTENSE! City own the entire series on DVD, which Country borrowed and watched, two glorious episodes a night, last year. It was a sad day when we finished the last episode.
Last night as we sat around and talked about yurt plans and farmland and knitting patterns and whatnot, we also hailed and reminisced the greatness of the fictitious Cicely Alaska and its interesting residents and their lives which we became intertwined in for a few years.
It makes me laugh. For folks that dont have TV and very little time to spare, we stretched our bedtimes each night for a little bit of easy entertainment. For an escape to Chris in the Morning and Fleichman and Maggie and Holling. Its weird.
But if you happen to not find it that wierd....
Today the sun is out...the frost is hard and the critters are fed. The cousins are still filling the house with yells and laughs and crashes that we dare not investigate. And there is a kitchen load of dishes awaiting some sister bonding time.
