Currently Obsessing Over....

Two new "likes" in my life.....

Wait, who am I kidding?!?!?!  Two new things that are bordering on "addiction" is more like it!

First of all, Spring is slipping into Summer here in Texas with a big BANG!  The weather around here is making national news.  We've had more rain than normal - not so much here, but down in the Hill Country south of they are getting hammered.  In fact, there has been extensive and tragic flooding down along the Blanco River, particularly in Wimberly, Austin, San Marcos.....and my thoughts and prayers are with all those who are experiencing loss.  The rain is flirting with us, though.  Fortunately, we haven't had the severe weather those around us have had recently.  But, we could sure use a bit more of the wet stuff to bring our rainfall totals and lakes up!

Having recapped our weather for you, let me move on to.....

New Love #1 - The Outlander series of books by Diana Gabaldon.  They're huge, massive books.....like 800+ pages each.  And there are eight books in the series.  I am plowing my way through installment #3 and am totally hooked!  So, if you're looking for some good reads and are serious about sticking with it, I totally recommend these books!!!

New Love #2 - Watching "Parenthood" on Netflix!!!  In the evenings when Eddie Dale is working late, I plop down in front of the TV and watch an episode or two of this series.  I just love it - the interaction between the siblings, the parents, the cousins....it's all good!!!  The background music is awesome; the sets are absolutely to-die-for.  I am almost finished with Season Two and already so sad that it is going to end because the series has been cancelled. 

So, those are my two guilty pleasures at the moment.  What about you?   How do you indulge when you have a little spare time?  

In the meantime, if you haven't joined me on Facebook, I hope you'll take a second to click over on the Facebook link in the right column (right over there >>>> and down just a bit) and LIKE my page to keep up with more frequent posts and updates!

Until later.....
