Focus, fragments and other ‘f’ words…

Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, “Heard” items, other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post. Then leave a link to your Friday Fragments  post and link back to our host Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin’ Time.

It’s not too late to join in on the fun and we would love to have you!

I am full of fragments.

I have always loved the thought of a brand new year. It gives us the opportunity for another chance to get it right. It is a fresh start with the promise of new possibilities.

New Year Midlife group!

Last year, John and I agreed 2014 would be about making memories one at a time and my word of the year was finish. We certainly did create a lot of memories and I finished the scrapbooks so we won’t forget. I also finished my second book. I am so excited that The Stranger In My Recliner will be going into production very soon.

We just had our first really cold day and I am ready for the beach. I am looking forward to March and bike week in Daytona Beach.

I am also looking forward to Nashville in March for the very first BAM conference. Is it cold in Nashville in March?
The word I chose for 2015 is focus. I am already stressing that I am going to need an ‘f’ word for 2016.

I’m having my 8th jaw surgery next Wednesday. There were only supposed to be 8 but because of complications there will now be 11. This is one thing I really wish was finished in 2014. I can’t wait til it’s over. The good news is it is working.

Are you a Downton Abbey fan? I loved the few episodes I had a chance to see while I was in Florida with my mother and always intended to binge watch to catch up. I am finally doing that and wow have I missed a lot. I’m not sure I’ll finish before the new season starts but I’m trying.

I’m missing Son’s of Anarchy. I can’t wait to see what Charlie does next. He would make a great King Author but the plans for that are six films. That is like a lifetime.
Sons of Anarchy, power couple Kurt Sutter and Katey Sagal are looking to make lightning strike twice. Katey will be involved in Kurt’s new period dram for FX, The Bastard Executioner. Will we see Charlie in this show that revolves around a warrior knight in King Edward III’s charge? I will be watching for sure.

Charlie Hunnam

What TV series are you looking forward to watching this year?

I just read that 2014 movie admissions were the lowest since 1995. I think it’s because the snacks are so disgusting and way too expensive.

Have a positive, powerful and blessed first week of 2015,
Doreen

  • Oh, thinking of you and those surgeries. But do give Downton Abbey a go…it’s really wonderful and sooooo pretty to look at!

  • I watched the first 2 seasons of Downton Abbey and then lost interest during the 3rd. I’m looking forward to all 3 NCIS’s to start up again. Also, Castle is another favorite that I’ve missed during the holidays. Should start again real soon.

  • Oh no. All those jaw surgeries sound terrible. I hope you can say that did finally finish in 2015. My word is “present.” I want to be present for those around me. Less preoccupied, putting down the phone and making more eye contact. I don’t want to miss a minute of motherhood. My boys are growing up so fast and if you blink you might miss it. Thanks for the great post.

  • Oh, my! Good luck with the surgeries! Why in the world so many.

    Yes and yes! Downton Abbey and (YES) SOA. I do miss Jax and the gang. I’m so thankful Charlie Hunnam backed out of Fifty Shades of Grey and look forward to what he will be doing. Thanks for the heads up on The Bastard Executioner; will set my DVR!

    • The extra surgeries are because of bone rejection and infection. The one on Wednesday is to correct some damage due to infection. Not looking forward to it at all, I have such a busy month.

  • I repurposed a retro graphic for F Word days… such as Fridays #ff and such. I may have done some fragments and given a nod to Half past kissing time. I lose track over the years of blogging. And jaw surgery, yikes! 11 surgeries are no minor group of procedures. May all go well.

  • I am sorry about the jaw surgeries. I hope they can get everything fixed up asap. I like your idea of Friday fragments. That’s a clever way to put too-short-for-posts prose to good use! I like Sherlock & Doctor Who as well as Reality TV shows American Idol, Top Chef, and So You Think You Can Dance. (And guilty pleasures Bachelor / Bachelorette, but I’m NOT going to confess to that. In fact, I don’t watch those unless I’m on a treadmill as penance.) All my best to you in 2015.

    • Friday Fragments are a lot of fun, great group of bloggers.
      I record all of the reality shows, I think they are a great lesson and reminder of how not to act. I like American Idol too, loving this group of judges. I like the treadmill idea, I should give that a try!

  • Two topics in this post stood out. Jaw surgery–good luck & blessings for a quick recovery. And Downton Abbey–YES am a fan! From Day 1. Keep going, it’s fun!
