The knock on the door came at last. Quickly, she jumped up from the couch where she’d been waiting impatiently. Checking herself in the mirror, she tried not to notice the newest lines on her face, and she pinched her cheeks hoping to give herself a bit of colour. She took a deep breath and … Continue reading The Real Story?
**NO SPOILERS** The anticipation is over... Thursday and Friday evening, I binge-watched Netflix's The Stranger starring Richard Armitage. What a relief to find that the 8-episode series is actually good! The Stranger is based on Harlan Coben's book of the same name. Red Production Company, Coben, and Danny Brocklehurst have collaborated on two previous series, but … Continue reading Finally… A Good On-Screen Project!
No power and around two feet of snow! What happened to my mild, green Vancouver?! Worst of it is... I can't keep binge-watching my House MD marathon!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone! It's been two months since my last post, as work and life got in the way of my blogging. Hope everyone is doing well! I've been playing again with some of the templates in Photo Lab, making myself giggle by dropping in some of the Richard pics on my phone. … Continue reading Christmas Gifs, Pics, and Songs
**CAUTION: FANGIRL ANGST AHEAD!!** I was distracted all day Tuesday, thinking about those pictures of Richard Armitage at last night's charity event, the Golden Heart Awards, in New York City. Guylty (with some sourcing from Kate) posted the pictures yesterday and I've posted them again below -- plus an additional picture from the event. While spending … Continue reading Another Charity Pic and Fangirl Angst
This morning, I was lazing around in bed. I should have been getting up and dragging my son out of bed too, because we both had work we should be getting on with. Rather than getting on with it, I decided to continue listening to Richard Armitage reading Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, picking it up again at … Continue reading Richard Spoke to Me
As you may remember, I was very disappointed that scheduled events on the home front prevented me from flying to Toronto to see My Zoe, but I did get to see The Lodge on Friday, at the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF). (Thanks, Serv, for letting me know it would be playing here!) The film was scheduled … Continue reading The Lodge
Today is Thanksgiving in Canada. As we are to the north in North America, our harvests are generally earlier, so maybe that's why we have an October Thanksgiving. Yesterday we had our family dinner -- only the four of us, but we still do the whole shebang. Of course I forgot to take a picture, … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving
I walked two blocks up the hill from my house and took these pictures of the colourful changing sunset on Sunday. My younger son said, "Yeah, they're nice, but I see it from my window every night." Jaded. An artist I've been listening to lately is Eva Cassidy, who died from melanoma in 1996, at … Continue reading Because They’re Beautiful
When is watching a movie like slipping into a warm bath? When you see familiar characters brought to life once more. Yes, I admit it... I have at least one guilty pleasure. I had resisted for years, but one day, I found myself watching Downton Abbey just to see what all the fuss was about. And … Continue reading Like Slipping into a Warm Bath
