Sunday so far

I turned off the computer around 11:00 p.m. and went to bed a little before 1:00 a.m., when I was at a good stopping place in my book.  I'm still reading Call the Midwife: The Shadow of the Workhouse.  I didn't go to sleep right away, and got up again briefly.  I decided to try again to go to sleep a little after 1:00 a.m.  That time I managed to go to sleep.  I woke at 8:00 a.m., but went back to bed.  I think I fell asleep again pretty quickly.  I woke again a few minutes before 10:00 a.m., so that wasn't too bad.

Several fics I've been following had new chapters, so I read those.  Mom and Dad went to a Chapel of the Four Chaplains luncheon and awards ceremony.  I went last year, but the food was really bad.  I decided to stay home this time.  Mom and I will probably go shopping later.  I am sitting under my light and will probably watch another episode of "Call the Midwife."

A couple of hours later: I went to the grocery store.  Parking was very bad because there are still big mounds of snow covering a lot of the parking spaces.  I ended up parking at the end of a row of spaces a few stores down.  I wished I'd waited for Mom and her handicapped parking placard.  I got what I wanted to get, so that was good.

I texted a little with WhiteSheepCBD.

Later: I watched another episode of "Call the Midwife."

Mom's stepmother H.G. called to see if we were coming to Florida.  Mom said no.  That was depressing to hear, although Mom had been saying for a while that a trip there was unlikely.

I saw that Callie had posted about "Agent Carter."  I made some observations.  I said that the California setting was very different from the first year's New York setting.  It's good to see the "original" Jarvis, the one I knew as the butler at Avengers mansion in the comic books.  I said we knew from the movies that Peggy survives into the present day, and Howard Stark into the 1980s.  Also, Jarvis was presumably around long enough to make a deep impression on Tony.  In the comic books, he was Tony's butler.  Any other character who appears on "Agent Carter" seems to be fair game to be killed off.  It's keeping me in suspense.  I hope they don't kill Daniel Sousa off, but we haven't heard from him in the present day.

Mom and I watched the second episode of "Mercy Street."  I've been taping it.  It's a little gory for Mom's tastes.  It's set in a Civil War hospital.  It cut off early.  I'm still not that great with the VCR.  Mom was hiding her face when there was blood and gore.  "Tell me when it's over," she said when the trepanning scene started.

YMCA-P. called.  He was back from church camp.  I said we'd enjoyed the bowling, but we'd missed him.

Die_traumerei posted a new chapter of her fic, resolving the cliffhanger.  She promised a happy ending, so I knew it wouldn't be too bad, but the cliffhanger was suspenseful.

Mom and I watched "Downton Abbey."  I texted a little with J. and J.-PA.
