The Monday after a 4-day weekend....

Oh yes. The body gets used to napping whenever it wants. It gets used to not having to deal with customers.

Hey! this is cool news:

The music is the best

And Linus' speech is fantastic. The kid's voice is perfect:

NCIS: Los Angeles is a repeat tonight so I don't have to stay up until 10.  Although I WOULD if it were the Internal Affairs episode. Bah humbug.

Today's plan

Yesterday went fine at Steve's mom's for dinner. Cleaning up was a bitch. We got home about 5:30. We won't talk about the Cowboys.

The boys and I didn't walk again this morning because it was -7 on the car's temp thingy as we went for a ride. Supposed to get to about 28 today and then the 30s/40s for the next 10 days.

Steve was up and gone to hit the sales when I got up to walk the boys. Foolish human. Me?

But he goes to the "man" stores and usually gets tools and stuff for the shop. And gun stuff for himself. In fact, there's a gun show today that he will also be going to. I expect that when he finally gets home, he will crash for several hours.

I will do some cleaning maybe ... maybe ...  but mostly I will read news on the computer, watch some Netflix perhaps, read, nap, etc.

Currently reading THE TOURNAMENT OF BLOOD by Michael Jecks. This is 11th of 31 in series featuring Simon Puttock, medieval West County bailiff, and Sir Baldwin Furnshill, ex-Templar Knight, in Devon, England.
It is 1322, and Lord Hugh de Courtenay's plan to host a tournament is a fantastic opportunity for the money-lenders of Oakhampton. When the defeated knights find themselves unable to pay the traditional ransoms to their captors, they will have only one course open to them—accruing interest by the hour. But when the most prominent money-lender, Benjamin Dudenay, is found brutally murdered a month before the festivities, Sir Baldwin Furnshill and Bailiff Simon Puttock find themselves on the trail of a most sinister killer.

Published in 2001, it has 362 pages.

Happy Friday!

This will be me all weekend.


Yeah, we'll probably get 1 - 3 inches out of this. But it will be back in the 40s next week so it won't stick around.

Gone with the Wind is on TV tonight. I probably won't watch it; with commercials it will be from 5 until 10.

Let's pause a moment and admire Scarlet's dresses:

Speaking of movies, the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War came out yesterday. It looks FABULOUS!

We have to wait until May. Argh.

I was soooo tired yesterday even though I slept better that night before. Maybe I was fighting something off. For the last 2 1/2 hours of the work day I was listening to music to help keep me alert. I was in bed and zonked by 8. Much better today.

Tomorrow, we'll be having dinner with Steve's mom and watch some football and nap. Since I'm on my diet thingy, I probably won't be having a food coma but getting up early and walking the dogs will be similar.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

The holiday is messing up my TV

SO ... last night. Deeks is arrested. We have to have TWO WEEKS to see what happens next. And, per usual they say “stay tuned for scenes from our next episode”. But they don't show anything.

And at first I'm like...

And there are commercials and I'm beginning to get a clue...

And when the 10:00 news starts I'm like  ...

So we're left hanging after this....

So I'm....

And there is no Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. tonight or Arrow tomorrow ...

So it looks like ...

Much love,

Disapproving rabbit doesn't like Mondays

Ugh Monday. But it IS a short week.

Tonight I have the one-week delayed NCIS: Los Angeles episode, "Defectors:
The team searches for a missing teenage girl who is feared to have been recruited by a terrorist organization.

The best part is the end when Deeks is arrested and we're closer to getting an answer on the Internal Affairs investigation:

Yeah, I'm a little excited.

On the reading front, I'm back to Charles Todd's A PATTERN OF LIES.

Oh, come on, it's not that bad yet

Snowing! This is not a drill! Snowing!

In the 20s today and currently fluffy flakes falling. Glad it's Friday.

On Sunday, we'll have The Walking Dead. No Once Upon a Time this week.

Weekend plans. Weekend plans. A movie, possibly? Still have the Bond movie and Mockingjay Part 2 opened today. We'll see. I'll probably surf the net and read. I need to clean off the counter that I would like to set my veggie processor center up.

Stay warm and cozy ....

Much love,

Especially on Facebook about current events

Well, I guess I was in the mood to read something fluffy. Currently reading FOREVER YOUR EARL by Eva Leigh. This is a nom de plume for Zoe Archer. This is 1st of 3 in The Wicked Quills of London series. Here's a description:
Eleanor Hawke loves a good scandal. And readers of her successful gossip rag live for the exploits of her favorite subject: Daniel Balfour, the notorious Earl of Ashford. So when the earl himself marches into her office and invites her to experience his illicit pursuits firsthand, Eleanor is stunned. Gambling hells, phaeton races, masquerades . . . What more could a scandal writer want than a secret look into the life of this devilishly handsome rake? Daniel has secrets, and if The Hawk's Eye gets wind of them, a man's life could be at stake. And what better way to distract a gossip than by feeding her the scandal she desperately craves? But Daniel never expected the sharp mind and biting wit of the beautiful writer, and their desire for each other threatens even his best-laid plans. But when Eleanor learns the truth of his deception, Daniel will do anything to prove a romance between a commoner and an earl could really last forever.

Published in 2015, it has 384 pages.

I don't have anything on TV tonight.

I know; I know! So maybe I'll read.

Cold weather and possibility of snow is supposed to move in tonight.

Steve gave me a gift card to Amazon for my birthday. I was intending to use it for my book purchases but have decided instead to get a KitchenAid thingy so I can food process veggies so I'll eat more veggies. I can have non-carb veggies all I want on Nutrisystem. It will be here on Monday.

Boy, you should be glad this isn't Facebook. I'm having a running battle/debate today with a friend of mine who is equating racial profiling white people for school shootings with the Syrian refugee call for better vetting situation. I believe I have the better logic.

Have a great Thursday!

It's a little breezy today

I woke up around 4-ish, hearing the wind roaring outside. Seriously. The dogs and I didn't walk this morning, we took a ride around the neighborhood. I think Ryker didn't like the sound of the wind; when I hugged him goodbye he tucked his nose into my neck like he does when he wants extra snuggles.

Last night's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finally had Fitz and Simmons doing something about their relationship:

Great scene!

Tonight I have Arrow. "Brotherhood":
Green Arrow's ongoing battle with Damien Darhk gets complicated by a shocking revelation; Thea's bloodlust returns and she loses control in front of Alex.

After that, I'll figure out what I'm reading and get some good sleep.

Meanwhile at the G20 conference in France:

And this is what today feels like:

Have a great Wednesday!
