Hope you're all having a lovely Sunday...

The weather here is bright and sunny so I washed yet another ceiling to floor window and one regular double window.  It was my aim to slowly get that side of the LR done,  and I did.  I'll have the cleaning lady do the MBR door/windows and the window in the TV room in the basement on Monday.   The rest of the house.... well..... the afternoon sun doesn't shine thru them directly so they don't really look all that bad, they'll just have to wait until spring.  Isn't that the purpose of having sheers???????? LOL     (I'll get the hang of this yet Donna...... !!!!)

Now it's time to sit and finish  watching the movie (i'm half way thru it and decided to take a break).   It's a Morgan Freeman film called The Magic of Belle Isle.... it's pretty good easy going film..... 

I'm reading a book by Nora Roberts: Perfect Harmony; just a simple beach book type of thing...  

so...................back to my film.....   TTYL Alligators  (I'm missing all the members.... really do....  )

We went out last night with friends for dinner and a movie. We saw Argo, a true story about the hostage crisis in 1980 and how the US, with Canada's help, got 6 citizens who had escaped the US embassy and were taken in by the Canadian embassy (thanks, neighbors!) out of Iran, having them pose as a Canadian film crew. It was very good. Even knowing it turned out well, I was on the edge of my seat as they made their escape.

I'm also watching the .... fifth season, I think, of Mad Men it's growing on me, lol.  And on tv I never miss Castle, Hawaii Five-O, Person of Interest, the two NCIS's and the two CSI's.

I'm reading a book called The Devil in the White City, a true story about the World's Fair in Chicago in the 1800's and the psycopath who captured and killed several women during the run of the fair. It's good, but not great, and so is going slowly. In my car I've got a trilogy of Cormac McCarthy books going - All the Pretty Horses, The Crossing, and Cities of the Plain. I've barely begun the first one (haven't been in my car in days, lol), but I like the author, so I think I'll like the books.

Yes, I've watched Mad Men from the beginning. I think the process of making and selling ads is very interesting.

Well here lately I have been reading a series of books called the mortal instruments.  I am currently on the third book of the series called city of fallen angels.  It is a very good series, it is about half human half angels known as Nephilium that fight demons.  The story is about a girl that is a Nephilium but she does not know it, in the book they are known as shadow hunters.  The book has demons in it, vampires, werewolves, and the fey.  It is a great series of books, I believe you can find it in the teens section at the book store.

As far as shows I am watching all episodes of Game of Thrones. Currently I am on the 4th episode of the second season, I am trying to get caught up so when the third season starts I will not be lost.   I am also looking forward to true blood starting back, but as for current TV series I am usually watching the voice or X factor.

As for games I am back playing World of Warcraft again!  LOL!

Yeah anything to do with vampires and werewolves I love.   I am a Sci-fi geek, I love anything to do with the supernatural or fantasy world.
