Florence is on my mind this morning because I just bought tickets to see her show here in Oregon next month. I can't wait!

I've been listening to her music quite a lot lately. As I mentioned in another post, Florence and the Machine was playing non-stop in the background as I wrote 44 Book Four and it appears that the same thing is happening as I write Book Five.

I love the song "Blinding." Here's a link if you want to listen.....

I love the lyrics too, especially these:

No more dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone
No more calling like a crow for a boy, for a body in the garden
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love with the wrong world  
  ---Florence + the Machine

Hope you all are having a great week~

When Sunday Nights Are Good...

This is a random post about watching a lot of television, but I had so much fun last night that I had to share.

First off, at about three in the afternoon yesterday, I found out about the Adele television special on NBC. Wow, lucky find~she was amazing!


Then I watched the season finale of Game of Thrones, which was fantastic! I loved those incredibly intense scenes, like when Daenerys, Mother of Dragons, searched for her dragons in the House of the Undying and found her dead husband and baby in a tent, and the White Walkers in the snow. I was happy too that Tyrion Lannister was still alive after the battle last week. Wow! This series has it all...myths, heros, demons, suffering and triumph, love and loss. It's going to be really, really hard to wait a year for the next season.

The fun of the evening didn't stop there...a quick refreshment break and I was back on the sofa....
Madmen was next up and awesome, as always. After last week's shocker with Joan and Peggy, the writers refused to let up and put us through another heartbreak at the very end of the episode.

And finally, I topped the night off watching Veep with Julia Louis-Dreyfus. It was nice to see a comedy after all the drama of the evening.

I confess that I'm a little sluggish today, with a slight headache and wobbly vision. But the evening of indulgence was well worth it...

Hope you all are having a great week~


P.S.  I did a few interviews with some of my favorite writer/blogger friends last week, so if you'd like to check them out, here are the links:
