Downton Abbey (S5 E6)

The house is quiet. I seem to be dozing off in this comfy chair, while trying to catch up with Downton Abbey; Mother is learning about All Things British by watching sweet Cranford; and the kindly husband is reposed somewhere else in this house, 'expanding his brain'. At any moment we will all have dropped off to sleep.

It was a busy day, which included:

  • visiting doctors in prep for the long journey ahead
  • getting enough medications for the long journey ahead
  • dashing to Macy's to finally snag the trendy travel items (this time the Visa card worked - yay!)
  • fixing a dinner which was as delicious as Lemon Pepper Chicken and asparagus deserves to be
  • having our first Strawberry Shortcake of the season!

It was all too much, though, due to an early morning wake-up once again. And so the SconeLady will now give it up and simply sleep. I did finish Downton, and I did take copious notes. Somewhere in mid-doze I thought I heard Thomas being nice to Baxter, but I could have been dreaming (I must have been dreaming..). 

Tomorrow, I will make sense of it all and try to make it make sense to you - (or something). I suppose I just need time to think.

And I can't help but repeat what the Dowager Countess said along those lines:

"All this endless thinking - it's so overrated."

See you along the way!
the SconeLady
