Thursday Thoughts

1. I'm sad about the Pirates losing last night. But what a great season!

2. This past week I read Uncaged. At first, I couldn't really get into it, which surprised me because I usually can't put a John Sandford book down. But once I read the first 50 pages or so, it picked up. I'm looking forward to Part 2.

3. I'm trying to decide if I want to see Gone Girl. I enjoyed the book and so far the movie reviews seem positive, but... I'm just not sure.

4. So much new TV!

  • I can't get used to The Amazing Race on Friday instead of Sunday, but I sure did enjoy seeing those blond bimbos from FL get eliminated on the first leg. The sun rises in the west? Really?
  • Bones made me cry. I did not see that coming. And I do not like that Fox put the show on Thursday again. It interferes with my evening of Shonda shows!
  • Speaking of Shonda - So far I like How To Get Away With Murder. Scandal and Grey's Anatomy are the usual. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next on Scandal - and more Mellie, please! Drunk and clad in sweat pants & robes Mellie is a hoot! Also, where's Charlie?
  • Boardwalk Empire. I can't wait to see what Nucky does next! Sometimes the show sends us to our tablets to look up historical accuracy, like it did last Sunday when we looked up Cuba's history to find out what was really going on at that time. 
5. This past weekend we grilled a leg of lamb and asparagus. So tasty! That might be the last grilling for a while. This weekend is looking chilly so there won't be any grilling or smoking.

6. Yesterday I followed up on my insurance claim issue. I called the Biller to see if they faxed the form to Insurer #1 as I requested. The Biller assured me that there are 2 supervisors working on the issue and that the issue is not the form even though Insurers #1 & #2 told me it was. ? I am so fed up with this issue. I asked when this might be resolved and was told to call back in a week. OK then.

7. Garden & herb update: It looks like our garden is done for the year. Everything looks brown and crinkly. Most of the herbs are done, too. Just the chives, thyme, tarragon, and rosemary look good. All the little pots of herbs of herbs we planted in August have sprouted. We'll have to move them into the house this weekend. Hopefully our attempt to have fresh herbs grow inside over the winter months works!
