Oxford Archives ~ Bodlein

Continuing posting from my archives to refresh our memory of our time in Oxford and to remind us of what we do not want to miss this time around. We will be making sure to sign up for a tour of the Bodlein Library this time in September of 2022.

This magnificent room in the Bodlein in Oxford was used as the Hogwarts Infirmary in the Harry Potter movies. The detail of the carved ceiling is amazing, don’t you think?

This post will wrap up our day six  in Oxford and I’ll be moving along to day seven in Broadway soon.

And now for some local news…

We finally have some sunshine again and the rain has paused for a few days.

Thankful for that as Andrew and Katie will begin their move into a spanking new apartment on Monday. How nice to not have to deal with pet hair this time around. I’ll share some photos next week. They will pick up their pod and empty that and then get the rest of their belongings that are at this old house. They used a U-Haul pod which was more economical for them than other pod companies. The savings probably comes from the fact that you pick up and deliver the pod yourself from the local U-Haul Carrier. Then they ship it across country for you. When it arrives close to your zipcode you have to pick it up and return it. Their pod is being delivered to a very inconvenient place in the Seattle area. We are northeast of Seattle and the pod is being delivered south of Seattle with the route to get there going right through downtown Seattle. Traffic timing will be a huge necessity.

Today there’s a little gathering of friends of theirs at this old house. The Pork Butt is in the smoker and has been since 3am.

What does your Saturday hold?
