7QT - Downton, crying, and mugs
1 - Ellie Holcomb's "Marvelous Light."
2 - Thank you for all the warm well wishes and excitement surrounding the new radio show I am co-hosting with Heather and Rebecca. I'm excited and really nervous and would appreciate your prayers. And if you haven't yet, make sure you find us on Facebook so we can keep you posted on updates since most stuff has to stay top secret right now.
3 - Last night I finally was able to watch the season finale of Downton Abbey. If you haven't watched it yet jump to #4. ....... Okay, for the rest of us: Carson! Wasn't it so great when he proposed to Mrs. Hughes?! And I really thought they would do something at the end so Tom would stay because I really don't want him to leave. Maybe next season will start off with him and Sybie coming back from the US. He's just so good and that is needed. I
really loved Lord Grantham and Tom going to Edith and letting her know that they know about Marigold. So sweet. (And who cast Marigold? Someone who had a favor to fulfill, that's what I think.) I hope Edith finds love again, and I hope Mary does too, as long as it's someone who makes her less of a jerk. I'm so tired of Mary being a jerk to Edith.
The whole Bates and Anna and the dead scumbag thing feels like the song that never ends. I hope the married couple skipping away at the end of the episode brings about two things: an end to that tiring story arch and a baby.
Finally, didn't you love how the family responded to Mosley and Baxter when they explained how they had visited all those pubs? They were so touched and proud and I cried.
4 - I actually am crying a lot lately. So there's that.
5 - A painter immortalized the last meal of 600 death row inmates, as PBS shares. Her paintings, and the broken lives they symbolize, will break your heart.
6 - I always appreciate when someone on the outside publishes a piece respectfully written about the Catholic Church and acknowledges the hypocrisy that can come from the government and some liberals, so I am a fan of the Wall Street Journal's A Fight to Keep Catholic Schools Catholic.
7 - These mugs are great, aren't they?
here, if you're interested (not an affiliate link, just something I liked)
Thank you, Kelly, for hosting again. Have a good weekend everyone!

Oh, I love those mugs!ReplyDelete
So hard to skip #3, I'm still working my way through season 4! And I need those mugs in my life! Mostly to remind myself about effect/affect, that's the one I have trouble with.ReplyDelete
I love those mugs so much. The word literally figuratively kills me on a daily basis. Gah. Have you tried this plug-in? http://www.cnet.com/news/browser-plug-in-changes-literally-to-figuratively/ReplyDelete
The Bates/Anna storyline was so incredibly tedious. I don't even like Bates, so I kind of didn't even care. But really, an established serial rapist falls in front of a car and 2 seasons later a witness shows up who maybe heard some sort of scuffle before hand and the police actually care? Not buying it. Methinks Julian Fellows is grasping at straws a bit.
SO excited about your radio show. Congratulations.
Hahaha! The song that never ends! Nailed it.ReplyDelete
I feel the same way you do about the Downton season finale. Everything. My girls and I are going to start over from season one to help us make through until next January.ReplyDelete
Whoa--world's collide. Ellie Holcomb and I went to the same high school. She has always been amazingly beautiful and talented, and also just the sweetest ever. It was a neat surprise to see her on your blog.ReplyDelete
I'm not a Bates fan at all, and the storyline that wouldn't die is extremely tedious. But it is sort of nice to have a plot thread I don't care about to use as a commercial break. ;)
My autocorrect needs those mugs (or I need to proofread). That should be plural worlds, not possessive world's, of course.Delete
Layla, that is so neat to hear that she's good to the core. I love that.Delete
Bonnie - thank you for #1. I think maybe I have only clicked on your song videos once or twice, but man oh man, I am glad I clicked today. So, so, SO GOOD! Just what I needed. Now I am off to google her and learn more. Thank you!ReplyDelete
I'm glad you liked her! Her song about making the broken beautiful is another favorite but I have barely jumped into her music.Delete
those mugs are awesome. i just checked out the link, they are out of stock! i'll have to look for them elsewhere.ReplyDelete
and congrats on the success of the new show!
Why are you crying a lot? Could it be....ReplyDelete
Nope. A lot of people have asked that and while I haven't taken a test several rounds of normal cycles have me thinking that's not the case. I do wonder if it's related to the thyroid medication I started a bit ago.Delete
Oh no, I'm sorry :( I hope things will settle down with your medication soon....Delete
