Well for the first time since Christmas, I am getting back to my regular schedule. Marvin goes back to work today after time off with his total knee replacement. I have already done a load of laundry and I look forward to getting my house cleaned and back in order. It seems when we are both home together, little messes pop up all over the house.:) We survived our stomach bug, the sun is shining and the weather is warm. I may just open some windows today to let in some fresh air!! I am a creature of habit so I do look forward to getting back to my routine. I can see that retirement will take some adjustments on both our parts when it arrives. Marvin hopes to work three more years. That will give us time to get ready for the next big adventure in married life!
The finale of Downton Abbey...what can I say? I am glad it ended on a brighter note than it did last year. I think we all loved seeing Mr Carson and Mrs Hughes wading out into the ocean holding hands. I hope this whole Bates thing is over with...I could not stand more heartache for Bates and Anna. I was glad to see Mary toss the ticket into the fire. And Edith...maybe she is coming into her own, making decisions for herself and going with her heart about her daughter. As for Mary...two suitors who are both suitable but I like Lord Gillingham the best myself! Sweet Daisy, she was so pleased that the Americans liked her and wanted her to be their cook but she gave the opportunity to Ivy. Of course, Daisy will inherit her father in law's farm so she could turn out to be a prosperous lady in her own right in the future. I guess we will all be waiting another year to find out what happens on our "story"!
