Evenings at "Home"

Good morning,

Although there is plenty of excellent entertainment and food available, some evenings while on board a ship it is nice to spend an evening at "home" in our suite.

On a recent shopping trip ashore I picked up this three disc set of the 1982 Miniseries, The Blue and The Gray.  So far we have watched the first two discs and will watch the third when we get another long evening at home. If you haven't seen this series or haven't seen it recently, it's a good "watch."
The blue expanding file case above is also something I just picked up at the store.  I have been looking for one of these that has the bottom of each compartment sealed and finally found it.  I have labeled the pockets with knitting needle sizes (I have more than one of each size) and have filed my circular needles for easy access.  The brown case in front is a set of interchangeable knitting needles.  The brown case fits perfectly into the back pocket of the expanding file. 
So, while watching The Blue and The Gray I started a new sweater.  It's not the one on the cover, but I'll have a picture of it all finished eventually.  ;)

What do you like to do on quiet evenings at home?

Lois
