I'm in with the peasants ...



TGIF!

Tomorrow I'll be getting up early early early to watch the royal wedding since my invitation apparently got lost in the mail.


And they will be Duke and Duchess when they go by in the carriage. NOT prince and princess.


 And then I have a Danielle forum to go to in the afternoon. It's going to be a long day.


"Navigating the New World": Times are not only changing – they have changed. Many feel lost. We look at headlines and we see a world that didn’t exist even five years ago. This is the timeframe of the feminine, and all the energetic and social rules are shifting. Our ethers are thinning and we shift between dimensions regularly. Our thoughts become things, instantly. What does that mean for our businesses? Our plans, our society, our mindset? How do we de-program ourselves from the Old World limitation consciousness to world with the new World Spiritual Physics?

On Sunday, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "The End":


In the Season 5 finale, Coulson's life or death is the challenge the team finds themselves in, as the wrong decision will cause the destruction of Earth.


And NCIS: Los Angeles Ninguna Salida

Despite several team members having grave reservations, NCIS travels to Mexico for a daring mission to locate and rescue Mosley's son. Season 9 finale.

Have a good weekend.

Not quite the weekend yet




Tonight on the season finale of Arrow, "Life Sentence":

With a new ally on his team, Oliver engages Diaz in an epic final battle
As the title suggests, I'm sure we will end on Oliver Queen going to jail for the summer hiatus because in order to get the FBI's assistance, he had to verbally confess he was the Green Arrow. He's killed a lot of people -- bad people -- but vigilantism. And Quentin Lance character will die.  


 One of my favorite lines of his.

 Have a great day

Halfway through the week .... yay?



Nothing on TV tonight.  But it's Steve's birthday so we may go to dinner or we may bring in dinner like we usually do. Which will it be?


We may just bring in dinner and then he'll play Mech on his computer. It makes him happy. And if he's happy ....


And then I'll just read which is good.


Yep. Works every time.


Have a good day

Words of wisdom to live by


Nothing on TV for me tonight. I hope to meditate, do dinner, and read.


You know when you're working but at the same time your brain is still doing background thinking and then solves a problem? That happened to me this morning. I was thinking about my book project. It just wasn't clicking and maybe I should just abandon it.


But I had that light bulb moment that changes everything so I guess I'll keep going on it.



That's it. Slow day. Have a good one

Ditto



Maybe I've broken my book slump. I'm being cautious. I'm currently reading THIS SHATTERED WORLD by Amie Kaufman and Meghan Spooner, 2nd of Starbound trilogy.

Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac should never have met. Lee is captain of the forces sent to Avon to crush the terraformed planet's rebellious colonists, but she has her own reasons for hating the rebels. Rebellion is in Flynn's blood. His sister died in the original uprising against the powerful corporations that terraformed Avon. These corporations make their fortune by terraforming uninhabitable planets across the universe and recruiting colonists to make the planets livable, with the promise of a better life for their children. But they never fulfilled their promise on Avon, and decades later, Flynn is leading the rebellion. Desperate for any advantage in a bloody and unrelentingly war, Flynn does the only thing that makes sense when he and Lee cross paths: he returns to base with her as prisoner. But as his fellow rebels prepare to execute this tough-talking girl with nerves of steel, Flynn makes another choice that will change him forever. He and Lee escape base together, caught between two sides of a senseless war. As Flynn and Lee attempt to uncover the truth about Avon, they realize that there is a conspiracy on the planet that runs deeper than either of them could imagine, one that Lee's former commander Tarver Merendsen only scratched scratcehd the surface of two years ago. The stunning second novel in the Starbound series is an unforgettable story of love and forgiveness in a world torn apart by war.

Published in 2014; 400 pages. 

On the TV front, one my shows got cancelled. Scorpion. Oh Toby and Happy.


Seasons one through three were great. Season four ... wasn't. In fact, I haven't watched the final episodes yet. It was a great show that made science geek-ery fun and watching Toby and Happy fall for each other was true-love-delayed done well. At least I've got the DVDs. But I will miss them.

On a more positive note, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D was renewed today for a sixth season ... only thirteen episodes but I'll take it.



They were on the brink of being cancelled last year but they came back for a season five which overall turned out to be terrific. Good for them. MORE FITZSIMMONS! No, they're NOT done being cursed. And it will be interesting if this Friday they incorporate what happened at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.


We are still waiting for the fate of Timeless. It HAS to be renewed for a third season. Last night ended on a cliffhanger.


Wyatt and Lucy from five years in the future show up. And Rufus was killed. Gah!



So the fans, including me, are on pins and needles waiting for word on next season. It, too, came back from the dead last year so it really really needs a boost. 


Nothing on TV really for me tonight though a new season of Street Outlaws is starting. Two hours. So I'll watch that with Steve.

I didn't sleep well last night. Just one of those nights. So I'm hoping to get some good zonking tonight.


See you soon

I'm so happy it's the weekend


Friday!


Tonight on Marvel's Agents of  S.H.I.E.L.D., "The Force of Gravity":

Daisy’s future as the destroyer of worlds could take a critical change.
I believe this is part one of their season finale. Not sure yet if the show has been renewed for next year. I don't think that's happened yet.

We also have to find the season premiere of Battlebots tonight. Along with viewing some Live PD.

On Sunday. NCIS: Los Angeles, "Venganza":



NCIS investigates the murder of a federal prison inmate who was the adopted daughter of a notorious counterfeiter. Also, Callen is summoned by the ATF's Internal Affairs board to discuss Anna Kolcheck’s actions during a joint NCIS and ATF case

Die, Anna, die. NCISLA has been renewed for a 10th season. Hopefully, they'll get their act together over the summer hiatus and have better writing than this season.



Timeless has a TWO HOUR season finale:

"The General"
When the Mothership jumps to South Carolina in 1863, the Time Team partners up with a courageous Union spy and military leader, Harriet Tubman - AKA "The General" - to thwart Rittenhouse's plan to alter the outcome of the Civil War. Back in the present, Rittenhouse hits the team where it hurts the most.

"Chinatown"
SEASON FINALE - When Jiya makes a daring escape from Rittenhouse that strands her in San Francisco's Chinatown in 1888 with no way home, the fractured Time Team goes back to save her in this emotional and action-packed finale that leaves the team questioning everything.
This fabulous show is dragging its heels in renewing for a third season. It's maddening.


Otherwise this weekend, I'll be taking my mom to lunch at Olive Garden tomorrow for Mother's Day.


And Music Night tomorrow night.



Have a great weekend

Watching for Friday





Tonight on Arrow, "The Ties That Bind":

Diaz targets Team Arrow and their loved ones. Oliver struggles with Felicity putting herself in danger when she gets the chance to stop Diaz for good.

Getting down to the wire on this season. (Yeah, that's a great photo up there).

And have to meditate tonight.



I've given up on the two digital library books. Can't get much past a couple pages in one and a couple chapters in the other. And I'm only reading a couple pages at a time with the Laurie R. King ARC. My book slump is entrenched.


Maybe it's time to start a new one. One that came out recently that I was looking forward to its release and reading it but couldn't read it because I was with another book.


WHISPERS OF THE DEAD by Spencer Kope. 2nd of 2 in series featuring Magnus “Steps” Craig, the lead investigator for the FBI’s Special Tracking Unit, who can see a “shine” people leave behind, living on Chuckanut Mountain in northwest Washington.

There has been a murder, but not only is the identity of the victim unknown, most of the body itself is missing. All that’s been found is a pair of feet, stored in a portable cooler, and left in the house of a Federal judge in El Paso, Texas. The killer apparently broke into the judge’s house, left his grizzly message, and disappeared without a trace. With no clues as to the killer, the person killed, or the intent behind the cooler, all the authorities really know is that this likely isn’t the killer’s first—or his last—victim. Magnus “Steps” Craig is an FBI agent and an elite tracker, easily the best in the world. Steps is renowned for his incredible ability to find and follow trails over any surface. As part of the three-man special team, FBI’s Special Tracking Unit (STU), he is called in on cases where his skills are indispensable. But there’s a secret to his skill. Steps has a kind of synesthesia, an ability that allows him to see whatever each particular person has touched in a unique color—what Steps calls ‘shine.’ His ability is known to only a few people—his father, the director of the FBI, and his partner, Special Agent Jimmy Donovan. While the Special Tracking Unit tries to grapple with the gruesome scene in El Paso, they soon discover another, earlier victim. Once again, only the feet—in a disposable icebox—were left behind. With almost no clues besides the body parts, Steps and his team find themselves enmeshed in the most difficult case of their careers. And The Icebox Killer has only just begun.

Published 2018, 324 pages.

Ommmmmmmmm


Mid-week. Steve has shooting at the range tonight. I don't have anything on TV. I'll be ordering Chinese food, meditating,

 
and reading. And then sleep.


Sorry, I'm in the middle of a big ol' book slump so I'm not reading very much lately. Books, that is.



I am reading some research stuff on the Akashic Records.


Metaphysical stuff.




Have a great day




Much love,
