Beautiful Orcas


One thing Michael and I regret about our trip to California is that we didn’t go on a whale watching cruise. I have always had a fascination with whales so to see one in the ocean has always been a dream of mine.  This  video made me so envious. One day I hope to fulfill this dream.


Catching Fire

Yesterday Michael and I were out to eat. While we were waiting for our food, a woman and a young girl were sat near us. The young girl took out the book Catching Fire to read while waiting for their food. I saw her and exclaimed to Michael that I thought the DVD for Catching Fire was released. He replied, “No, I think it is next week.” I took out my iPhone and went to my Target app to see if it had Catching Fire in the ad. It did and showed it came out March 7th – that day this happened. Michael sighed and pulled the phone out of my hand and turned it off. He then expressed, he was planning on going to pick it up after his afternoon meeting and Chinese take out as a surprise for me. Now all because a teenage girl sat down across from us and started reading Catching Fire the surprise was ruined. But the thought was there and we had a nice Friday evening watching Hunger Games and Catching Fire back to back while enjoying Chinese take-out. Thankful for having such a great guy that thinks of surprising me out of the blue and for no reason, but to see me smile.


Downtown Abbey

I have been drinking more tea this winter. Last winter, I might have had a cup or two a week. Now I have one almost everyday.  Even having a second cup sometimes. I told Michael this morning that either it is just because it has been so cold this winter or maybe watching so much of Downton Abbey is inspiring me to drink more tea. It took about 3 episodes of the first season before getting Michael hooked on Downton Abbey. We watched season 1 on Netflix and 2 on Hulu. Right now 3 is being shown on until March 3rd. But luckily for me, Michael bought me Downton Abbey UK edition Season 3 on DVD so we had a season 3 marathon recently. I was thrilled to see moments I had been waiting for since season 1. But I was also shocked by some things and think Mr. Julian Fellowes writer/creator of Downton Abbey has a little Joss Whedon in him. Joss fans might understand when they watch season 3.Now I am waiting for season 4! And rewatching all seasons OVER and OVER.
