The only reason that I'm excited that's it's Friday, is because this Monday is Family Day in a few provinces in Canada. Ontario being one of them. I'm thankful for that and am going to enjoy it. I've learned to take advantage of Government/Federal/Provincial days off, because I have the law behind me to say, I need a damn break! I know that I'll be working on school stuff for the rest of today and all of this weekend. I plan to get caught up and comfortable with where I am, in school, if it kills me. Okay, that's a bit dramatic but I think you know what I mean. There's no point in taking this program if I can't teach someone, with near perfection, everything that I've learned. At least that's the way that I feel about it.
I did finally finish, 1 of the 3 books that I borrowed from the library. Who Asked You? by Terry McMillian, 2013. It took me weeks to finish it because if I do have any time to read my eyes are burning from exhaustion, so it's a constant, "I'll read another chapter tomorrow," deal. So I'm hoping that I can get another head start on book 2 of 3, (Heartbreak Hotel by Deborah Moggach, The Widow Waltz by Sally Koslow). Maybe watch a movie, or keep working on my book forward. Which by the way has been thrown way back out of my minds eye. I knew I would be busy with school, but I underestimated the workload by a lot. My first book schedule is months off and I have to find a way to get it back on track. I'm still trying to figure that one out, since school really has no end for me. Anyway, I'm off, I have a courses calling me. Have a great weekend and Family Day, if you get the day!
Book of the Week: Who Asked You? by Terry McMillian I'd give it a 3.5/5. (Links may not work in all countries. All videos belong to the artist/corporation. Links may be affiliate links.)
It's Family Day here in Ontario, Canada. Some of you have it off as a government/ bank holiday, some do not. I think it should be country-wide. I don't have anything planned for Family Day this year, except to play some board or card games. Monopoly, Scrabble, UNO, dominos?
Season finale of Downton Abbey, season 3 was great. Although I don't know why the writers can not let any character be happy for too long. Does there always have to be a tragedy to keep the audience enthralled? I personally don't think so. It's cliche but at least Matthew died instantly. The other unfortunate thing is, now Mary will most likely become her old snarky, miserable self again. Matthew's mom, Isobel will be a mess. Her husband, now her only child are dead. Maybe she'll allow Dr. Clarkson in her life as more then just a friend. Time will tell, I guess.
-I am happy that the new maid who was hitting on Branson was sent packing. She was too much, even for changing times.
-Edith is determined to get "her" man any way that she can. I'm not happy with the circumstances but she deserves some happiness. Her father will blow his gasket, though.
-Thomas and Jimmy new friendship will be interesting to observe. Thomas does need a friend since him and O'Brien have fallen out.
-I couldn't believe how sour and miserable Susan MacClare & her maid are. It will be interesting to see those story lines flush out.
-I do like the edition of cousin Rose to the mix. She'll be a good "replacement" for Sybil and will keep the household on it's toes!
-Too short of a season but I enjoyed it & I can't wait for season 4! How did you find the season finale of Downton Abbey?
How are you spending or how did you spend Family Day, if you get/got the time off?
