The Wheels on my mom’s car go round and round.

My mom is learning Austin like a pro.  Today she made it over to the arboretum, and the sam’s club, the other day, we went to the domain and the walks of the arbors, where Sam Moon is, she drove it.  I am proud of her.  usually we take the bus, to different places, there are places here that she knows how to get to by driving, and she pretty much knows her way around round rock and George Town, so Austin, is getting its work out as well.  We go on the bus first, then she drives it, by that time, she sees that we don’t have to go this way or that, and where she can turn off to get to a place faster, so cool.  She loves it here, and getting to know all of Austin has been pretty cool as well.  Since I don’t drive, I take the bus, when needed, but know, if we go out, she drives it, so the bus rides are getting fewer.  Of course there will be times, and situations, where the bus will be a must, but also know that the car is an option as well.

Plus, the time is coming fast, that I will be in training, and won’t have the days off to just go and hang out, so trying to get it all in now, that work/life balance thing is still something I am trying to figure out.  I am ready to get back on the job, don’t get me wrong, being able to sit and watch shows like crazy has its perks.  I just finished season two of Wentworth, this show is pretty dang good, I highly suggest the watch.

Well that time is upon us, you know…  Tax Time, I am still waiting for my w-2, then I am off to get it filed, have to go to another free place this year, but once it is all done, I will be so happy it has been taken care of for another year.  Well, once again, today has been a nice sunny day, yeah, this is me loving this winter season here in Austin.  Until the next time readers, here’s to a great day.

 

Amazing show

I don’t know where this show came from, but it is a Marvel show, it is called Jessica Jones, and I just finished watching the last episode on netflix last night, it is Amazing.  Woah, with a Capital Woah!  It was a little slow going in the beginning, but it blasted out of orbit as I continued to watch, I am pretty much drooling at the mouth, wondering when the new season will begin.  I will say, that if you haven’t watched it, Go, go now and watch it, It is on Netflix.

What A Game…

Mom bought the first season of The Game of Thrones.  My, my, my and a game it is.  Awesome storyline, great acting, could use less nudity; plenty of carnage, in all I say…  Where the heck have I been all this time.  I am going to have to do plenty of catching up.  This show is awesome!  I practically stayed up till midnight watching it, knowing I had to be up at four am to get ready for work, oh yes, I may suffer today on the grind, but I do knowing it was well worth it.  I  have a new obsession!  Let the games begin!

Love knows no ending

Five years ago, I fell madly in love.  With the show Justified!  Yes,a television show like none I have ever seen.  It had gorgeous characters and brilliant writing.  I was hooked when I laid my eyes upon Deputy Marshall Raylin Givens, as played by timothy Oliphant.  It was a love affair that lasted six seasons.  Oh yes, we have had out differences; but overcame them.  Oh he left a trail of bodies from Miami to where it ended in Harlin Kentucky.  From the first scene with him telling one Tommy Bucks to leave Miami in 24 hours or he would shoot him.  To which he did, shoot Tommy bucks that is; to his  show down with or drawdown with Boone in the end.  It has been one hell of a show, with everything in between.

Yes indeed, I am madly in love with this show , love knows no ending; even though the show ended this year, and I have all the seasons for my collection.  I totally love the ending and how they wrapped or tied it all up.  I swear, most shows leave you with a fairly bad taste in your mouth, Justified was not that kind of show.  Sure, it could have continued to go on( I wish it would have), but the way they closed it out was top notch writing and superb acting.  For that I thank you Graham Yost, And the late Elmore Leonard.  This was truly a show for the ages.  If you have not watched it, download or go buy the DVD.  I highly recommend.  My love for this show has  been Justified!

Day 278:

Today I am…  Intrigued!  That’s right my loyal reader’s.  Deborah has a new Netflix series addiction.  “The BlackList”  it stars James Spader, oh my, and it is thrilling, I am liking it mucho gusto!  I just turned it on yesterday evening once I got out of work, have been seeing it on there, but always passed it up, well decided to see what it was all about, and boy am I glad I stopped at it.  I have it all cued up right now, and once I finish this post, it is going on.  If you should happen across it on your Netflix, I highly recommend it.  Good watching.

So after work, called mom, they are on their way this way.  This is the last time I will see both for a bit, dad is going to be heading back to work, so won’t get to see him, he still has to get his lens put into his eye, that will take place in a couple of days.  He also has to pass the eye part of his physical, so that also will take place next week some time, So they will be here till Wednesday, always glad to see them, tonight I am making spaghetti.  So until tomorrow my reader’s enjoy the end of your weekend, and may the start of the new week bring nothing but blessings and Joy.

Today I am…  Intrigued!

The Start of Something Good

So it started back up with the television series Torchwood, and proceeded on to what I have in my Netflix repertoire.  Now things have branched out, new and older programs.  I have now watched The Fall, Happy Valley, South cliffe, and I am now into the first season of six seasons of Prime Suspect.  I have dived into Luther, and I am all giddy with all that I have been seeing.  There are much, much more to go, I have always had an infinity for british comedies, and British shows, now I can really indulge it on Netflix.

Day 260:

Today I am…  Doing Nothing.  That is right my friends, just doing nothing of the sorts.  Today is my day off, and I am not doing anything special today with it, just going to lounge around my little apartment, type out this blog, watch some Netflix, which I have been getting into some Netflix original series, and they have been really good.  I just finished one called Happy Valley, if you happen to have Netflix, I am really suggesting you check it out, it is a bbc broadcast, very good though.  Right now as I type this out, I have Pandora streaming away.  I feel like a little music for the day.

Got assessed yesterday at work, then mentored for one of the clients I am on, the assessment was ok, not great, but just ok, I really do need a bit more help on this one, so I am hoping to get more mentoring on this client, as for the mentoring I did get on the other client, that went good, they say I am doing alright on it, so that makes me smile.  Yup, in six months I will have been there for a year, I am hangin’ in there.  Who knows where my next step will be…  Stay tuned.

The weather has been in and out the past few days, all the while I was taking my umbrella with me everywhere, there was no rain, the moment I leave it at home for the day, it rains, man isn’t that ironic.  Life has a way of laughing at you, great laugh life, but I am still chugging along.  It’s all good.  I will be taking my umbrella with me from here on out, the smaller one in my purse.

Well it is about lunch time, so off I go to have something to eat, here’s to having a great day.

Today I am…  Doing Nothing.

Day 244:

Today I am…  Onto a new series.  On Netflix that is, I have been seeing this every time I click on television shows, so now I have decided to stop and finally watch it.  There are apparently 3 seasons of it on Netflix, I am just in to episode 3 of the first season.  It is Continuum.  I am finding it really good, yes sometimes, it takes a while for me to get to things, but when I do, I always kick myself and say, where have I been, why didn’t I watch this while it was on television, but that is neither here or there, it is a beginning for me and I am liking it a lot.  So as I put on some chicken to bake for dinner, I am about to switch on Netflix and get on it.  So Happy Monday Y’all, and hope that you are enjoying what is left of it.

Today I am…  Onto a new series.

Day 235:

Today I am…  All Worked Out!  That is right my friends, and reader’s, I just got off work an hour or so ago, and now I am home, ready to get my grub on, and kick back to watch season 4 and the series finale of “The Killing”, here on Netflix.   I started watching it last night, got through 3 episodes, really two, I fast forwarded the third episode to the end, I was way to curious to see what was going to happen.  Now I am going back to watch the complete episode, and move on from there.  I should be done with the entire thing before I lay my head down to go to sleep tonight.

Whew!, the weather outside is muggy, but a breeze is blowing through as well.  I haven’t seen any rain, but can’t say there still won’t be any.  So this is about it for today my reader’s and friends, here’s to a fabo weekend, keep it fun, safe and always enjoy what ever you do or do not do.
