Creature of Habit

Saturday night. I don't know about you, but Saturday night is my time with the tube. You know I don't have many channels, so mostly on the non PBS station has the same garbage over and over, but on Saturday night I get to see old favorites, from 5:00 to 11:00. I park in my chair, ignoring my phone and hardly doing a thing on my comp. I get to see re-runs of Major Crimes (2 episodes), Rizzolli and Isles (2 episodes), and Haven, with 1 hr. of PBS at 9:00.
I don't usually ask questions, so here goes, take your pick:
Any questions for me? Off the wall is okay, I reserve the right to not answer anything I don't want to.
Comments on my blog?
Do you have anything special you always do on a Saturday night? (If it's about sex or anything like that - please, don't tell me)
Any subject (in good taste ;-))

Played cribbage with DH this afternoon and actually won a game!

  1. Usually Saturday nights here are spent at home. Hubby watching some sport on the telly and we have takeaway delivered
    To me that's just perfect!

  3. Our evening viewing is usually "reality" shows, cooking shows or sports and talent shows. We have a couple of channels that show reruns of old shows from about 2pm until 6.30pm, but that's Monday to Thursday, then on Friday one of those channels shows reruns of reruns of older movies suitable for kids, then more reruns of old movies for adults.
    I give upon all of them and watch DVDs, where I have movies and TV series like Haven, MacGyver, The Big Bang Theory, Criminal Minds, Castle, Death in Paradise,Fringe, Bones, Stargate, Stargate Atlantis, Warehouse 13, Grimm, Highlander, Sleepy Hollow, Murdoch Mysteries, iZombie, and more. My current new favourite is The Blacklist, which is only up to season four.

    1. When you say "Highlander" -- Do you mean the original, old "Highlander, The Series"????

      Luna Crone

    2. I see we have the same dislikes of today's programming. I still enjoy my Saturday night favorites and Sunday night Masterpiece Theater though. I would love a DVD library as extensive as yours!

    3. Luna Crone; the series begins in old Scotland and the Highlander is an Immortal, the story moves through the centuries via his memories as he is living in present times. The only way to kill an immortal is by taking off his head. That the one you mean? I don't know of any other.

  4. Nothing special for me. Television programmers here are diabolical lately. I get more satisfaction from books.

    1. Books are such a lovely alternative. I used to have my nose in a book all the time. I miss that.

  5. Friday night is my night to watch Dateline but I missed it this time and I regret it because it was about Princess Diana's death. We had fun this Saturday for a change. Our insurance company had a social with a barbeque meal and door prizes. John won a $10.00 gift card to HEB grocery store and I won a barbeque meal.

  6. Saturday is usually television night for us too. Suits, Gilmore Girls, Grace and Frankie. Haven't seen any of the ones you mentioned!

    I'm a late-comer to your blog so a brief potted history of your life would be good?

    1. DH watches Suits, but not the others. No clue what they are about. He controls the remote on the main TV.

      Brief history? Oh, my, that would be a series of books, even in a short history.
      I'm a great-grandmother on my second marriage. I have 4 children from my ex and 1 with DH. I have lived in many different states, from coast to coast. I used to be an avid reader, sewer, painter, writer, cook, gardener, and even a cake decorator. I have tried my hand at many crafts - knitting, crocheting, stained glass, jewelry making, wood working/scroll work and still have most of my tools, although I did sell my table saw. For some reason I can't seem to part with things, even though I know in my head that I can't do that stuff any more. I have been a sewing factory worker, a nurse's aid, and a draftsman. You could say that I am a Jill of all trades, master of a few. Ha Ha. Today, I am a chubby, gray-haired, old lady, with serious health issues that I try to ignore. My hands, eyes, lungs, heart, mind, and body in general have betrayed me. I now watch a a lot of TV/DVDs, play with my blog, putter with plants, and watch the birds from the window in my womb with a view.
      Anything specific? Ask again. :-)

    2. That sounds like a good life, well lived. x

  7. Well, we usually watch "Justice With Judge Jeanne" at 9pm. And before that, I used to have Hallmark Ch. movies on. But now, the Mets are playing well, so we have them on also. Meaning, we can switch among stations.

    And quite perfectly, since getting Netflix, we can each be watching some old Brit shows on our tablets, too. Mets on tv, with sound off...

    I know! That sounds like a "rig-a-ma-roll" of doing, and I suppose it is. LOL

  8. You asked about 'comments on your blog.' I like the way you have your Comments set up. Easy to scroll back up, to your post, while commenting. And you have colored click-able links. I like the way your Comments section is set up!!!

    1. Thank you! I guess it was a roll of the dice when I picked my blog page - I didn't do that myself! Heavens, I wouldn't know how! Ha Ha! :-)

  9. Questions? What is your favorite thing to do on the computer? What's the best thing you cook or bake that everyone raves about? What kinds of jobs have you had in your life?

    Love your blog!

    1. Favorite thing on the computer? Hmm ... Besides my little blog, I like to cruise Amazon and I look at Ebay at the antique jewelry, although I won't deal on Ebay anymore.

      Paying jobs? Nurse's Aid, Mechanical Drafting, and sewing machine operator (which I hated). I did work as a helper for a woman who owned a resort when I was a teen. (I hated that job too.)

      I tried to make a go of it with a T-shirt shop - lost my shirt. I also tried to make a go of selling vintage jewelry one year, that didn't work out well either. I loved it though.

      I can't really cook any more, BUT I used to make the best sweet rolls and they were always requested at family gatherings. Also German potato salad.

      Thanks!

    1. Today's TV programming mostly stinks in my opinion. I had a few favorites - gone now. :-(
      I don't watch many sports, I don't understand them. I now watch a little golf with DH - after watching him play golf on the wii game, I learned what it was all about.

  11. Our Saturday nights consist of watching whatever is on TV with Cindys Dad, I do check in on the blog with my Kindle from time to time though.

    Are you from Tennessee originally? If not where were you born?

    1. Nice that you spend your Saturday evenings with Cindy's dad!

      I was born in Minnesota. My father was an artist and he sort of dragged up all over - my favorite place was The Land Of Enchantment. I'd move there again if I was able. I do love TN in the spring and fall.

    2. I lived in New Mexico for quite a while, there are some nice areas there also.

  12. No...I usually play my day and nights by what happens to be taking place at that time. I love being home on my couch and I have tons of channels to pick from, but even with that, there are times that there is nothing to watch! So long as I have my bud with me all is good.

    1. Oh, yes, sometimes with the wide array of programs on TV, there is still nothing worth watching. Dakota is a great best bud! :-)

  14. I'm not a huge t.v. watcher altho the other day I did manage to sit the whole day with my feet up watching old 1970's sitcoms and game shows. Those are fun to watch. I like to see the hair and clothes. :) - Which were you a sewing machine operator at? I worked in a blue jean factory and a shoe factory when I lived in Arkansas. Never again.. - New post up. I've been away. :)

    1. I'm not positive, but I think the name was Angelica. My fun job was to sew the zipper in the flies of men's pants. Mostly UPS pants. Once we had a huge order of white suits for Mormon funerals, I had the willies when we did the ones for the little boys. I agree, never again.

  15. We occasionally order a pizza and rent a movie.
