Ready for the weekend

Friday! Woot!

No plans for the weekend other than the usual stuff.

More binging.

Some reading, some Internet-ing, some cleaning.

And working on the new story in my mind and discovering this character I'm thinking of that's an anti-hero.

That's about it.

Have a good weekend

Much love,

Thursday on the desk ...

Receptionist was sick today. I was on front desk duties.

You know what's really strange? I haven't been on Facebook very much the last few days and when I got back on I wasn't really enjoying it that much.

Wouldn't it be great to just give it up completely? Weird huh.

I've been getting hit with another book idea. The first one is on pause and I'm wondering if perhaps the one I'm thinking of now is in the same world but a different character and is either simultaneous or earlier .... ???

All I know is I have to roll with it and follow the obsession when it hits me.

Nothing on TV tonight. I'll be doing the usual. And speaking of obsessions, I gotta do my Tom Keen of the day:

Have a good day

If only ... .

Wednesday. Waiting for the weekend of course.

Steve has the gun range tonight. I'm going to do some beading. I started a new bracelet last night.

I'm using the "wild honey" superduos.

Otherwise my usual binge and reading. I'm still binging on Ryan Eggold so re-watching The Blacklist and New Amsterdam.

And before I go, an obligatory Tom from The Blacklist shot:

Have a good day

And it's only Tuesday

Nah, things are ok.

Nothing on TV tonight for me so I will either read or continue my binge of Ryan Eggold's TV shows, either The Blacklist or New Amsterdam.

Reading wise, I'm about to start A LADY’S GUIDE TO GOSSIP AND MURDER by Dianne Freeman. 2nd of 2 in series featuring Frances Wynn, the Countess of Harleigh, a young American-born widow beginning in 1899 London

Though American by birth, Frances Wynn, the now-widowed Countess of Harleigh, has adapted admirably to the quirks and traditions of the British aristocracy. On August twelfth each year, otherwise known as the Glorious Twelfth, most members of the upper class retire to their country estates for grouse-shooting season. Frances has little interest in hunting—for birds or a second husband—and is expecting to spend a quiet few months in London with her almost-engaged sister, Lily, until the throng returns.  Instead, she’s immersed in a shocking mystery when a friend, Mary Archer, is found murdered. Frances had hoped Mary might make a suitable bride for her cousin, Charles, but their courtship recently fizzled out. Unfortunately, this puts Charles in the spotlight—along with dozens of others. It seems Mary had countless notes hidden in her home, detailing the private indiscretions of society’s elite. Frances can hardly believe that the genteel and genial Mary was a blackmailer, yet why else would she horde such juicy tidbits? Aided by her gallant friend and neighbor, George Hazelton, Frances begins assisting the police in this highly sensitive case, learning more about her peers than she ever wished to know. Too many suspects may be worse than none at all—but even more worrying is that the number of victims is increasing too. And unless Frances takes care, she’ll soon find herself among them . . .

Have a nice day

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,
