I know that many of us are patiently waiting for the return of Downton Abbey on January 5th, 2014 but I am curious what are you watching on Sunday evenings in the meantime?

Paradise is based on the novel Au Bonheur des Dames by Emile Zola and is the latest BBC drama to be shown on PBS Masterpiece. It tells the story of the people who live and work at the Paradise, England’s first department store.
John Moray conceived the Paradise and has been slowly purchasing up the surrounding small mom and pop stores to create his fabulous emporium of all things beautiful. Denise arrives fresh from small town, Pebbles to make her life in the big city and instead finds that her uncle with whom she had been hoping to live is slowly going out of business due to the competition from the Paradise. In order to survive Denise takes a job at the Paradise and become enamored not only with the world of retail but also with John.
I love this program, it is a wonderful costume drama, romance, and mystery all rolled into one. At least it will get me through to the middle of November and then hopefully PBS has something else up its sleeve.
I would love to hear about what you are watching on PBS, cable or whatever. Although I am not a huge TV watcher I am always interested in your suggestions.
Have a great day!
On a side note, today is my husbands birthday! I have never meet a more wonderful, loving, supportive person in my life. Bill is my biggest cheerleader and I a so very blessed and lucky to have found him. Happy Birthday my dear husband. I love you with all my heart.
