Morning Meanderings… A Little Downton Abbey Moment
I am here.
I don’t know why I don’t post as much as I used to and I really wish I did. I think about posts… and I dialogue them in my head… what I will say, what I will share…. a review, a funny moment, a hard one….
and then for whatever reason the days pass and I will think, “huh, I never did post about that.”
Really though… my whole life is like that now. I struggle to get the simplest things done. I would rather be at home than run an errand. I still avoid crowds as much as possible, and I am working hard to avoid the retail stores this season as I just do not want to see all the decorations or the hustle of people happily gathering things for their soon to be celebrations.
is not about that.
I have been a Downton Abbey fan for the past couple of years since I first discovered this addicting PBS show. Seriously if you have not watched this… you must. All previous seasons are on Netflix. In the past few months I have watched them all again…
That’s just good stuff.
A friend of mine told me that our local College Theatre was having a pre showing of the next season premiere that will not air in the United States until January 3rd. It was a free event and people were encouraged to dress the era. I was not up to dressing he part, but I was all in for going to the premiere.
The premiere was last night and it was fun to see those who did dress up. Got to love our “Stars Hollow” style community.
The premiere was wonderful. The gentleman in the above pic to the right had trivia for us. Some of the questions were:
What is the first machine you see in the first episode, first season?
What is Mrs.Hughes first name?
What is the name of the man who came to an untimely death in season one?
What has just happened in the opening scene of Downtown abbey season one episode one?
We also received some swag..
That was my evening… and it was a nice one.
In other news, First Book Of The Year is coming along nicely and I am thrilled about that. We currently have 65 signed up to participate! I think this meme, and the book I choose to read will be my way of getting through the end of this year and entering the next.
