Rainy Thursday Off Work

It was supposed to be Opening Day in Cincinnati but they postponed the game yesterday because the forecast was for rain all day. I put in to be off in October so off I was. It’s been a coffee and musicals kind of day for me.

What I’ve Been Watching

Beside my new found obsession with Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, I try to keep up with some primetime shows. Here’s what I’ve been watching.

9-1-1: I’m really enjoying this Fox drama with Connie Britton and Angela Bassett.

Station 19: I was shocked that this was a spin-off of Gray’s but I’m liking it.

Better Late Than Never: I found this earlier this year and this might be my new favorite TV show. I laugh so hard every time this is on. If you have not seen this yet, I recommend watching it.

Those are the only new shows I’ve been watching. Of course I still keep up with Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, Gray’s, and NCIS New Orleans.

Southern Belle Reads: What I’ve Been Listening To

As I’ve mentioned before I love listening to audiobooks in the car. Here’s what I’ve been listening to lately.

Currently I am on book two, story three (the first was a novella) of a series by J S Scott called the Sinclairs. The series is about four billionaire brothers finding love in a small costal town. There is more than four books so I’m not sure where the other billionaire Sinclairs are coming from.

Before I started these I listened to Darker (Fifty Shades Dark from Christian’s point of view).

Vacation Pictures

I have finally made it through the almost 2,000 pictures I took while on vacation at Disney World and I have to say I think this is my favorite picture from this trip.

My Journey Re-Reading Gone With The Wind

I made a decision this weekend, I am postponing my journey re-reading Gone With the Wind. I need to have a clear mind to be able to focus on this journey and I don’t have that right now. I should have known better than to start it right before vacation, since I get into intense vacation mode before a trip. Plus I have a few other books screaming at me. I want to read the book that was made into the newest Passionflix movie so I can watch the movie. And I have a book I started before Christmas staring at me daily. I hate leaving books unfinished for a long period of time. And I may just have to read a mystery or two to get that out of my system too. So I’m not ending my journey I’m just pushing it back a few weeks till I can focus on the journey.

My Wish List

I’ve decided I want a she-shed and I’m adding it to the top of my wish list. I want it more as a reading nook but it could have the same kind of feel. I’ll probably never get it so it will be on my wish list for a long time.

My Journey Re-Reading Gone With The Wind Week’s 2, 3, 4, & 5 Update

I’m starting to think I picked the wrong time to start this journey. Yes starting it on Valentine’s Day seemed cool but I’ve had a lot going on.

Week 2: this was the week before before my vacation so I was in vacation stress mode.

Week 3: this was my Disney vacation week so I had no downtime to read. It was go go go and as soon as my head hit the pillow I was asleep so I could do it all again the next day.

Week 4: was not only the first week after the time change but also my first week back from vacation so I really hit a wall that week trying to recoup.

Week 5: this past week and well it has not been a good week. I did have a little unplanned downtime but I slept through most of it. It’s funny how your body has little ways of telling you you need to slow down.

Maybe next week or maybe even this weekend I can get some reading in. Especially since they are calling for snow this weekend.
