How often did I already read Ithaca? I don't know, still it remains a meaningful and interesting poem. Thanks for another read.

I'm a regular reader, but I don't believe I've commented before... This is such an interesting way of getting to know someone!

I did this a year ago, too and enjoyed reading your new answers. It's amazing how much the answers to these questions describe a person.

That photo is gorgeous, your Sabin has some serious skill and talent going on. Thankfully she has parents who appreciate it!

I am having a very zen, very quiet weekend too. I have been watching Faulks of Fiction (on BBC iplayer if you can get it), drinking tea, cooking, and relaxing. We rarely have 'at home with nothing planned' weekends, so I am making the most of it.
