Breathe in ... 2 ... 3 ... 4 ... and out ... 2 ... 3 ....



Last night's Arrow finale was somewhat satisfactory. They killed the big bad guy. But the Team is breaking up and Olicity wasn't a ride-into-the-sunset finish. And now we wait until October.  


And!! It's not the weekend yet. It's only Thursday! Damn you!


So tonight we'll probably watch the final finale of 60 Days In where the participants find out about each other  .... and apparently it ain't pretty.


We just have today and tomorrow and then it's a three-day weekend. Woot! You know what would be the best ever? If it rained all. three. days. But it won't.


What I should do is finish viewing some series's seasons I've started and stopped midway through like The Musketeers, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Supernatural, The Fall .....


But I'll probably waste a lot of time trying to decide what to do, per usual.


Anyhoo.


Have a lovely. I'll see ya tomorrow.

Much love,

Please let today be good, please let today be good....



I will NOT be answer the phone or texts or the door or even the call of nature from 7 until 8 tonight. The season finale of Arrow is on.


"Schism":

Oliver teams up with a surprising force in an attempt to stop Damien Darhk and his magic once and for all.


It had better hold up to expectation. They actor who plays the Arrow has tweeted this:


So.


I still haven't picked what to read next. So many options.


And I guess things are better than the last couple days.


But maybe the worst is passed....

Wait, what do you mean the weekend is over?


I read a novella, A PRESSING ENGAGEMENT by Anna Lee Huber. In between books 4 and 5 in series featuring Lady Darby, a widow taking refuge at her sister’s estate, in 1830s Scotland.

Scotland, 1831. With her wedding to fellow investigator Sebastian Gage only a day away, Kiera is counting down the hours. But just when matrimonial jitters threaten to consume her, Kiera receives a welcome distraction in the form of a mysterious gold necklace. The Celtic torc, thought missing for decades, was directly involved in a recent investigation. Now, Kiera feels compelled to uncover the truth behind its sudden reappearance.But with an overwhelming flock of wedding guests, a muddled cat, an unpaid favor, and a ferocious storm throwing things into disarray, it’s anyone’s guess whether Kiera and Gage will actually make it to the altar...
Published in 2016, it has 83 pages.

I'm not sure what I'm reading next.


I started watching a BBC series, The Musketeers. Yes, based on the Three Musketeers. Two seasons available on Amazon. A third is on going.


Coda had a mostly good weekend. We had an accident yesterday morning while heading out to go for a ride that required a whole lot of cleaning up.


But by yesterday afternoon Coda had improved enough to go outside more than once and to kinda let me know the urge was there.


That was a big hurdle. I'm trying tonight for the first time to not boarding Coda but bring him home every evening after PT. We'll see how that goes. 
 
So not much on TV for me tonight so I'll either read or keep watching Musketeers.

The weekend is so close I can taste it


TGIF!

Coda is coming home again for the weekend. He still has issues with his back left leg but otherwise is being more active so we'll be having a normal-ish weekend as much as possible, i.e. not sitting on the couch keeping him quiet.

On Sunday, we have Game of Thrones, "The Door":

Sansa confronts Littlefinger about what he knew of Ramsay's intentions; Arya gets an opportunity to prove herself; Bran is transported to a dangerous place; Tyrion envisions an unusual alliance; Brienne undertakes an important new mission.



I have about 25% left of the Tessa Arlen book so I should finish that this weekend.


So much so much so much to read next. A lot to view on computer.  


I know. I know.  Every weekend. Every time.


Oh and clean the house a bit.


A bit, I said. Maybe.


All right off you go. Have a good weekend.


Much love,

Still there?


Apparently Coda is doing some side work to help pay off his medical bills. Wait, I'm told this is pro bono, dammit. On Facebook, I came across a photo today that the vet posted to help promote some cleaning products.



Who can resist that smile, eh? I'm seeing a great career ahead of him.

Tonight I have Arrow, "Lost in the Flood":

Oliver and Diggle race to rescue Thea, while Felicity, Curtis and Noah join together to stop Darhk.
Last night's TV viewing was good. Some tears for NCIS. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D was suspenseful and didn't end on a terrible cliffhanger like last year. Two season finales down, one to go -- Arrow next week. Then I'll have my evenings free for the summer months .... to do other addictive things.


Steve has shooting tonight; I have an evening somewhat to myself. Much needed.


Have a great one, folks!


Much love,

Interesting perspective


Tonight I have the two-hour season finale of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., "Absolution" and "Ascension":


It’s a showdown a season in the making as S.H.I.E.L.D. takes on Hive, and when his master plan is finally revealed, the team must spring into action. Who will live, and who will die?



I may also catch the season finale of NCIS. It is Very Special Agent Tony DiNozzo's last ever because after 13 years, Michael Weatherly is leaving the show.



Even though I'm still watching via Netflix episodes from back in Season Six (and this is Season 13), I've spend over 100 episodes with this Very Special Agent and I'd like to see how they conclude his character.


Aaand on the book side of things.....


Currently reading DEATH SITS DOWN TO DINNER by Tessa Arlen. 2nd of 2 in series featuring Lady Clementine Montfort and housekeeper Mrs. Jackson, in Edwardian England. 
Lady Montfort is thrilled to receive an invitation to a dinner party hosted by her close friend Hermione Kingsley, the patroness of England's largest charity. Hermione has pulled together a select gathering to celebrate Winston Churchill's 39th birthday. Some of the oldest families in the country have gathered to toast the dangerously ambitious and utterly charming First Lord of the Admiralty. But when the dinner ends, one of the gentlemen remains seated at the table, head down among the walnut shells littering the cloth and a knife between his ribs. Summoned from Iyntwood, Mrs. Jackson helps her mistress trace the steps of suspects both upstairs and downstairs as Hermione's household prepares to host a highly anticipated charity event. Determined to get to the bottom of things, Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson unravel the web of secrecy surrounding the bright whirlwind of London society, investigating the rich, well-connected and seeming do-gooders in a race against time to stop the murderer from striking again.
Published in 2016, it has 320 pages. 

Ok, so that's my evening.
