Addicted to Downton Abbey

I’m not one to watch that much TV. I’d much rather read or play on the computer.

Last night, I stayed on my sore butt (delayed onset muscle soreness from Monday’s fitness class) and watched three episodes of Downton Abbey. I literally sat and laid on the couch from 6:15 until about 9 p.m. Um, I am a bit obsessed with and addicted to the show! I know I am not alone because I keep reading and hearing about more people just like me.

I love the characters, historical references, romance, the British accents, the mystery, the clothes, etc. I could go on and on. I am one episode away from finishing season one, so I am a bit behind considering the last episode of season two just aired. I had to sign up to get season two from the library and I hope it comes in soon so I can have another marathon!

I ate some thin mint ice cream while I watched. 🙂

I got my sore butt to the gym tonight. I worked through the pain and it felt good.

After I got home, I made my lunch for tomorrow–a spinach salad with peppers, mushrooms and cheese. Kind of a weird combination, but I have been craving peppers and mushrooms lately.

Aldi had a sweet deal–I got all three of those peppers for 99 cents total. Score!

I saw Jenna review this book on her blog and when I looked it up on Amazon, I was impressed with the five out of five stars from other readers. It came in at the library and I picked it up today. Yet another book that is set partially during WWII. I guess I can’t get away from the subject this year, no matter how much I try.

I am looking forward to this book and I think it will be a much better read than The Tiger’s Wife! There’s a bonus of some lovely German recipes in the back of the book too, so maybe I’ll attempt to make some of them. I love German desserts.

Time to get ready for bed and read that book. Have a good night!

  1. There’s 11 days left to watch season 2 on PBS.org…plenty of time since you’re watching 3 episodes/night 🙂
