Lazy Sunday Thoughts: One Lost Hour

Pin It

How I hate setting the clocks forward! That hour missing kills me. I'll be messed up for a week now. At least it will be light out later. We've had some fabulous weather this week too. I hope that means spring is on its way. I can't wait to start gardening. Right now my garden is a big block of ice though. 

So, I was sick earlier this week and couldn't do much of anything. It really wiped me out. I'm back in the swing of things now. I thought lying in bed would mean more blogging and reading but really it just meant more feverish sleep. I did get a book read for a blog tour later this week: The Flight of Gemma Hardy. I have mixed feelings about it. Tune in later this week.

Let's see what else can I tell you.

No new books came in. I have a gift card for Chapters which I need to spend. I keep looking but then don't spend it because I can't make up my mind. Not making up my mind is a problem lately. I can't even decide on what book to read next. 

Bloggiesta is coming! Bloggiesta is great because there are so many little blogging duties that get put off until 'someday when I have time.' Bloggiesta is that someday. It's also helpful to have other people doing the same thing. Someone out there will be able to help you if you have a problem.

I watched all of Season 1 of Downton Abbey this week. I cannot wait to watch the next episodes. I don't always like Lady Mary. I know what Edith did was terrible but Mary can be a bitch. Matthew is too good for her. I guess it's too much to hope that Edith marries that guy she wanted. Sybil is adorable though. I'm sure all of you who've seen Season 2 already are biting your tongues!

  1. I'm glad to hear I'm not alone in not much liking Lady Mary and wishing Edith could marry the man she became interested in. I felt sorry for her a lot of the time and could understand the impulse that caused her to betray Mary, even though it was wrong. I've done well to stay spoiler-free about season 2, but I have a feeling they're going to push Edith into the villain column and not let her find happiness.

    1. I haven't paid much attention to posts and opinions on the show since I was avoiding spoilers so I wondered if I was alone in feeling that way.

  2. I feel so behind - I haven't started Downton Abbey yet!

  3. I love Mary, she's my favorite. She's not always nice but she is always interesting to me.

    But I like Edith as well. I'll be interested in your thoughts on the third season.

  4. Matthew has his moments. :) Trust me, by the end of season two, it will seem like he and Mary belong together.

  5. I loved Downton Abbey. Mary grew on me some in Season 2 and you are right that Matthew is too good for her. I still haven't warmed up to Edith, but she is growing on me a little. I adored Sybil from the beginning. Elizabeth McGovern's facial expressions are priceless and of course Maggie Smith is perfection. Actually my favorites in Season 1 were John Bates and Anna.

    1. I love McGovern's expressions. You know just what she's thinking. I did enjoy Bates and Ana. All that pining for each other.

  6. Feverish sleep is worse than missing the hour!! It's good to sleep of course, but when you wake two days later you really feel as if you stepped out of a time machine. As if everything has changed. LOL.

  7. No spoiler here but give Lady Mary a chance- she, like so many others in the show is a character who grows and deepens- such good intelligent writing! Enjoy!
