Hallelujah


At last!



On Sunday there's NCIS: Los Angeles "767":

An engineer who was developing a new guided missile destroyer is murdered. Callen and Sam go undercover to track his co-worker aboard a plane to Tokyo who intends to sell the classified intel. Meanwhile, Deeks plans a surprise get-together for Kensi and her out-of-town friends.
 And we'll be watching The Walking Dead "Something They Need":

A group of Alexandrians embark on a journey to a distant community; and one group member must make a heartbreaking decision.
 I've got my group thing tonight, a Danielle forum tomorrow, and my Human Design class on Sunday.


 Otherwise, hanging with the boys, doing some cleaning and reading.


Have a good weekend!

By Thursday, one feels more upbeat



Hey, it's National Puppy Day!


For me, EVERY day is National Puppy Day in my heart.


Arrow last night was one of its best for character development of Oliver Queen. There were some difficult scenes to watch in terms of torture and despair.


 And it ended with this:


Nothing on TV for me tonight. I'm hoping to get some good reading in. The Kushiel book is picking up.



Have a great day

It's been a long week and it's only Wednesday







Must I?

Tonight is Arrow!

"Kapiushon":
Prometheus goes to great lengths to break Oliver. Meanwhile, in the flashbacks, Anatoly becomes worried about Oliver's increasingly violent tendencies, which come to a head in a brutal confrontation.

We're moving toward the end of the season so things are going to start happening now.


I try not to read two books by the same author in a row because the writer's flaws can show and you can overdose but I'm really needing something to read that will completely capture my attention right now.


So I'm starting KUSHIEL'S JUSTICE by Jacqueline Carey. 2nd of the Kushiel's Legacy fantasy series.

Imriel de la Courcel's blood parents are history's most reviled traitors, while his adoptive parents, Ph├Ędre and Joscelin, are Terre d'Ange's greatest champions. Stolen, tortured, and enslaved as a young boy, Imriel is now a Prince of the Blood, third in line for the throne in a land that revels in beauty, art, and desire. After a year abroad to study at university, Imriel returns from his adventures a little older and somewhat wiser. But perhaps not wise enough. What was once a mere spark of interest between himself and his cousin Sidonie now ignites into a white-hot blaze. But from commoner to peer, the whole realm would recoil from any alliance between Sidonie, heir to the throne, and Imriel, who bears the stigma of his mother's misdeeds and betrayals. Praying that their passion will peak and fade, Imriel and Sidonie embark on an intense, secret affair. Blessed Elua founded Terre d'Ange and bestowed one simple precept to guide his people, love as thou wilt. When duty calls, Imriel honors his role as a member of the royal family by leaving to marry a lovely, if merely sweet, Alban princess. By choosing duty over love, Imriel and Sidonie may have unwittingly trespassed against Elua's law. But when dark powers in Alba, who fear an invasion by Terre d'Ange, seek to use the lovers' passion to bind Imriel, the gods themselves take notice.  Before the end, Kushiel's justice will be felt in heaven and on earth.

Published in 2007, it has 721 pages. 


Have a good one

Going to be one of those weeks


Sorry for missing yesterday's post.

Nothing much to report and nothing on TV for me tonight. I'm just about done with the Carey book. Sharing today with you:












Have a blessed day

St Patrick's Day



Happy St. Patrick's Day!




I picked up some corned beef and cabbage soup via Soup N Such for dinner tonight so we'll see how it goes.



On Sunday, NCIS: Los Angeles "Getaway":
The U.S. Treasury Department is hacked, and Neil and Eric go undercover inside a couple's retreat to track a tech-savvy husband and wife who are linked to the crime. Meanwhile, Digital Forensics Specialist Dave Flynn arrives from the NCIS cyber office in San Diego to run ops while Eric and Neil are on assignment.

And

The Walking Dead "The Other Side":
The Saviors pay an unexpected visit to the Hilltop, catching everyone by surprise. This time, they're planning on taking more than just supplies.

Tonight I'm going to check out a meditation group; see how it goes. I have my Human Design classes tomorrow and Sunday. I missed them last week with the illness.


Have a good weekend.

To do list


I started to read KUSHIEL'S SCION by Jacqueline Carey. 1st of the 2nd SFF trilogy, Kushiel's Legacy.

Imriel de la Courcel's birth parents are history's most reviled traitors, but his adoptive parents, the Comtesse Phedre and the warrior-priest Joscelin, are Terre d'Ange's greatest champions. Stolen, tortured and enslaved as a young boy, Imriel is now a Prince of the Blood; third in line for the throne in a land that revels in art, beauty and desire. It is a court steeped in deeply laid conspiracies---and there are many who would see the young prince dead. Some despise him out of hatred for his mother, Melisande, who nearly destroyed the entire realm in her quest for power. Others because they fear he has inherited his mother's irresistible allure---and her dangerous gifts. As he comes of age, plagued by unwanted desires, Imriel shares their fears. When a simple act of friendship traps Imriel in a besieged city where the infamous Melisande is worshiped as a goddess and where a dead man leads an army, the Prince must face his greatest test: to find his true self
 Published in 2006, it has 769 pages. Another big book. Loved and adored the first trilogy. I've been holding off on this so I wouldn't rush through it all.

We're trying a new place for dinner tonight, highly recommended  -- a fish dive that has supposedly excellent clam chowder and we'll both be having walleye. Huge walleye, they say.



 Actual photo from their Facebook page. I'm looking very forward to it.


On TV tonight, we'll probably watch 60 Days In. Then reading, then bed.



Tomorrow ....



MY day.

Have a good one!

Monty Python strikes again!



Arrow night!


"Checkmate":

Oliver gets closer to the truth about Prometheus. Meanwhile, Helix refuses to continue helping Felicity until she does a favor for them.

Otherwise nothing going on. Steve has shooting but he's got a sore throat today so who knows what can happen.


If by anything you mean I'll be parked in front of the TV watching Arrow, then you'd be correct.


Have a great day


Much love,

Feeling better


Feeling better, at work for a few hours. Tonight I have my meditation class. Don't know yet if I'll attend or not.



Currently reading A DEATH BY ANY OTHER NAME by Tessa Arlen. 3rd of 3 in series featuring housekeeper Mrs. Jackson and Lady Clementine Montfort, in the early 1900s in England.


The elegant Lady Montfort and her redoubtable housekeeper Mrs. Jackson's services are called upon after a cook is framed and dismissed for poisoning a guest of the Hyde Rose Society. Promising to help her regain her job and her dignity, the pair trek out to the countryside to investigate a murder of concealed passions and secret desires. There, they are to discover a villain of audacious cunning among a group of mild-mannered, amateur rose-breeders. While they investigate, the rumor mill fills with talk about a conflict over in Prussia where someone quite important was shot. There is talk of war and they must race the clock to solve the mystery as the idyllic English summer days count down to the start of WWI.

Published in 2017, it has 334 pages.

If I skip the class, I could watch the season finale of This Is Us "Moonshadow":


Jack heads to Cleveland to make things right with Rebecca on the night of her first big gig with the band. Then, Randall, Kate and Kevin make big decisions about their futures.
And it's going to be a heartbreaker. There is no doubt about it. 


  On that happy note, have a great day



Much love,
