Okay - it has been a long stretch since I have written a post. I have been getting things done, working on some - I can't show you stuff - so sadly I have neglected my blog. Forgive me please?!? And I just wanted to share with you one of my new favorite things - seriously so good!
I have caught the bug - the Downton Abbey bug. My mom introduced me to this series when I went to the Cabin retreat with her and I was going crazy because I had to wait for season 2 to come out. It's been a tough wait, but Clint and I have faithfully been watching this season every Sunday night on PBS when the kids are in bed - he won't admit that he likes it, but at least he will watch it with me. So, if you haven't been watching it - you should and I found it on Amazon for $19.99. Have a great week everyone!

I need to learn more about it. It seems to be the thing to watch! Thanks for the tip :-)

I watched it a couple of times and couldn't 'get into it'.
I have the whole series of Little House on the Prairie , Ann of green cables & Dr Quinn Medicine Women that I love to watch.
I pleased you have found something to chill with.

Ooh! I love Downton Abbey! I was so upset this week! I won't say why just in case people haven't caught up yet. I really enjoy seeing how each set of people (divided by their class/economic station)seems to have their own group of problems/issues/trials/joys/happiness. Each group seems to think they have the worst of it but only a few seem to grasp that they're all in the same boat (life!).

We live quite olose to the property they call Downton Abbey...it is called Highclere and it is near Newbury in Berkshire, UK. Lovely programme..we have had season 2 here already! It is very popular over here too.

I love these British features....will have to look into it.

KaHolly said...

Oh, I just love British drama series. I'll have to look for it!

I'm hooked, too! I was able to get Season One on Netflix (streaming) and have watched Season Two online when I workout. Keeps me on the elliptical longer:)

Sally said...

I just bought Season 1 to watch on my iPod, but I haven't watched any episodes yet. I can't wait, though!

Needled Mom said...

Oh gosh, we both LOVE it!!!

Nielsen Family News said...

I watch it on masterpiece theater online and season one is on netflix now- yea! I have to say though that Cora makes me a bit crazy (as well as many of the other characters), but all in all you just have to love a good period film! Did you see 39 steps with Rupert Penry-Jones? That is worth a see as well! Oh and the new Sherlock Holmes is pretty good too.

Brenda said...

Right there with you. Love Downton Abbey!

I follow "Period Movies" on Facebook and she is on top of things Downton! I watched the series online before Christmas with links she posted.

She covers other period movies, of course. But I also enjoy the links she had to interviews and articles about Downton Abbey. I hope you can check it out!

Life With Gert said...

I too caught this bug! LOVE this show!

Cheryl said...

I am hooked on it too!

krisgray said...

Me too!! I remember putting it up on Netflix while I was quilting and by the 3rd episode of season 1, I was hooked. I watched it Monday night on line since our PBS station airs the new eps on Sundays and we were watching the big game.

Jenny said...

Where have I been? Gonna check it out...thanks!

Marianne said...

All my friends were raving about this, so I borrowed it from our library and, guess what, my ordered copy is in the mail. ;-)

Downton fills the gap left behind by "Monarch of the Glen"

Mama Pea said...

My mom and dad are hooked on it. I watched two episodes with my dad while visiting him. And now I"m hooked! I need to go back and start from the beginning!
