Something amazing happened in my home last evening that I simply had to share it with you all this week as my Simple Pleasure!
After a very long day at work, I wanted only to cozy up in a corner with hot compresses on my feet and a cup of tea. Recently, the Tales of Beatrix Potter BBC series I had ordered, arrived, and this would be my first opportunity to view them. They are a splendid animated series of some of her tales, with live action footage and a cavalcade of BBC drama stars providing the voices. I expected to be entranced.
What I did NOT expect, was that Emma would be entranced, too.
To be sure, she sat, as you see, for a full hour and a half, watching every twitch of Tom Kitten’s tale and breathless hop of Peter Rabbit as he fled Mr. Macgregor.
She was as enraptured by the live action portions of Beatrix and her animal friends gathered about her writing desk, as she was of the animated portion – and the little butterfly that flitted across the screen on the DVD Main Menu.
Pure delight! A Simple Pleasure – watching entertaining Emma as Emma is entertained.
