Oh hello, Monday

I got my new glasses today. Not my sunglasses yet. I like 'em. Steve did too.

The beading class went well on Saturday. I like the patriotic bracelet I made. I just need to finish the ends before I can wear it.

I finished binging all the seasons of The Blacklist that the character of Tom was in. What an amazing story arc. The character is killed off (the actor got his own show, New Amsterdam, so no spoilers there I'd say), and I have to say I've not seen a more heartbreaking scene in perhaps ever. The music was beyond emotional with the raw painful cover by Disturbed of The Sound of Silence; the final interaction between the two characters just floored me. I was stunned and shocked and bawling.

Bravo, The Blacklist. You meant to kill him off twice and he was such an amazing character they let him come back through the first half of season five and even had a spin off season of his own.  Now I'm re-watching them.

I have a love/hate relationship with the obsessions I get but I'm actually grateful I get to have them and that there are stories out there that feed it and I have the availability to wallow in it whether it's in book form or visual.

I also realized that for me to truly love a book or a show I have to fall in love with a character and/or a 'ship. Or the actor playing the great character. Both helps.

Deeks and the concept of Densi on NCIS: Los Angeles

Oliver and Felicity on Arrow  - Olicity

Fitz and Simmons on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

 David Tennant as the 10th Doctor on Doctor Who

Charming and Snow on Once Upon a Time

  Friday Night Lights' Coach Taylor

Veronica and Logan on Veronica Mars


Jack on This Is Us

Dean on Supernatural

 Toby and Happy on Scorpion
Sherlock on PBS's Sherlock

And with The Blacklist, Tom Keen and a great redemption storyline. Oh and for fun here's a shirtless scene when he was undercover as a Neo Nazi. :)

Street Outlaws is on tonight. I'll probably watch for a little while but not the full two hours it's slated to be.

Have a good day

End of the work week

Friday. Soooo....

Oh, binging on The Blacklist and now its 6-episode spin off featuring my favorite character. Where has The Blacklist: Redemption been all my life? Loving. It. So Much.

Love me some eye sparkle. Yeah, I'm having a crush. So whatever. Nothing new here.

Tomorrow I have a beading workshop that should be fun. The project is one of those memory wire coiled bracelets of lots of different beads of your choosing. Since we're coming upon Independence Day, I'm going to do a red, white, and blue one. I ordered some spacers in the shape of stars.

And I'm hoping to start whatever new project I'm choosing. Maybe a bracelet using this superduo mix:

Or this more complicated bracelet:

Otherwise, a usual weekend of reading, napping, some cleaning, and more binging. 

Have a good weekend

Much love,

Just hangin' in there

Getting closer to the weekend. But not yet.

Not much going on tonight. Steve has a board meeting at the range. I don't have anything on TV but I'm on season 4 of The Blacklist

The writing and story arcs are so good. And if one fast forwards to pretty much just watch the storylines of Tom and Liz .... their story is thrilling. Second chances. She gets more complex and less black/white and he becomes more heroic. Now they both have darkness and light and will do anything; powerful apart and together. Loving it.

I believe I only have up to season 5 to watch and then Ryan Eggold left the show. But then I also have one season of a spin-off kind of scenario. Woot!

Now he's on New Amsterdam.

I still haven't narrowed down to a beading project yet.

Have a good day

Much love,

Strike a pose

The haircut last night went well but not best. I like the cut I've chosen but it will need more layers next time.

I finished beading Candy's bracelet last night.

Just need to put the ends and clasps on. And now I get to work on a different project!

Nothing on TV. I've been binging on The Blacklist on Netflix.

That's about it. We've got thunderstorms this evening so I imagine I'll be comforting a freaked out dog.

Have a good day

Much love,

I'm getting a haircut tonight! I can't take it anymore!

I had to cancel my last appointment so it's been about eight weeks since it's been trimmed. My bangs are horrible. I can't see.

Nothing on TV tonight, of course. I hope to do some beading. I didn't get a change last night so no progress since Sunday.

And not only do I have a lot of other projects to work on ... I've got a TON.

And so it goes. 

Have a good day

Much love,

And we start a new week.

Not much time to talk about stuff today.

Have a good day
