Good morning! How was your weekend? I spent the last few days exploring the suburbs of Chicago and it was great. We walked miles on the Illinois Prairie Path, explored antique stores and blogger stores, discovered a new favorite in Wayne, ate some tasty treats and so much more.
Life upstairs and down was moving along, forward and backward but moving none the less.
Isobel was trying to manage her grief and have a life yet all the while worrying that doing just that would mean she was forgetting her beloved son Matthew.
Lady Mary is slowly coming back to life, she is working, going out and even doing a little flirting. Although I find Lord Gillingham intriguing, that fact that he is engaged and putting the full court press on Mary a little distasteful. A marriage proposal after a handful of meetings left me a wee bit skeptical of his true feelings and motives.
Watching Anna struggle with her feelings breaks my heart. Not only is she trying to come to terms with her assault, but instead of thinking of herself she is trying to protect Mr. Bates. In the meantime, Mr. Bates is wandering the house confused, lonely and looking as if he lost his best friend, which in fact he has.
Edith infuriates me, how could she be so intelligent and yet so stupid. I wanted to yell at the screen as she was signing who knows what document that her married boyfriend gave her. Will this girl ever learn?
I could be saying the same for Rose, that girl is always looking for a good time and always ends up in a mess. I do not think we have not see the last of Jack Ross the band leader, do you?
Thankfully Edna and her schemes were exposed. As I mentioned last week, I am a little tired of Tom whining that he doesn’t fit in with the Crawleys, but I certainly did not want to see him with the likes of Edna. Do you think we have seen the last of her?
Tell me what did you think of Downton? And did you enjoy Sherlock? Sherlock came highly recommended to me by Jeanne at Collage of Life and I loved it and cannot wait to see more.
On that note, I hope that you have a wonderful day and I am looking forward to hearing what you thought of both programs.
