Tenacious Thursday…

  1. Not readily letting go of, giving up, or separated from an object that one holds, a position, or a principle: "a tenacious grip".
  2. Not easily dispelled or discouraged; persisting in existence or in a course of action: "a tenacious legend".
persistent - tough - stubborn - dogged – obstinate
And that is the way today has been, dogged.  I grocery shopped again at Food Depot and Kroger and got my car washed.  I am well stocked now so stop by and we’ll have lunch and some iced tea.  Sweet tea for you southerners.  I also did a load of laundry so I have been pretty busy.  
The time just flew by this morning and I missed Y&R.  I do have it recorded on the DVR so I can watch it later.  This has not been a good week television wise.  Desperate Housewives is gone forever, never to return again until it pops up on the USA Network or TBS or one of those channels.  I might start over again and watch it from the beginning.  I really loved that show!  Ducky had a heart attack on NCIS which happened at the same time as the telephone ringing and the weather radio about blasting me out of my chair.  Man that thing is loud enough to be heard in the next county.  I didn’t watch the 2 hour finale of Criminal Minds so I will have to catch that through On Demand.  All of my favorites, Bones, The Big Bang Theory,NCIS gone until September.  Sigh….I will be reading a lot now.
I hope you all have a lovely sunny day.  It is beautiful here, bright sunshine and 71 degrees right now.  Stay safe and be happy!!


  1. I enjoy the summer and could hardly wait for it, but it's hard to wait for the shows to start again. The endings just drive you crazy.

  2. I don't watch any of the shows you mentioned!! But then I don't watch much television.
    A nice sunny day here by me and I too did laundry today.
    Enjoy the rest of your day.

  3. I'll really miss Big Bang. It's my favorite comedy right now.
    I used to watch AMC...since 1971 shortly after it started. Still seems weird that it is gone. At least your Y&R is still on. ;)

  4. I will also miss Housewives. Very sad to see it go.

  5. Gosh, I LOVE Big Bang. I just never remember to watch it. Steven Hawking was/is supposed to guest star.

    It's over 80 here and sunny. I am praying the a/c will cut on but it is stubbornly waiting until the agreed upon temperature is reached. I am HOT!

    Well, we KNOW I am hot..hee heeee..I mean temperature wise. :-)))

  6. I'm on my way over to visit :) Oh how I wish!

    I'm so sad about so many of those endings :(. Criminal minds really got me down. I sadly was on FB early in the day and their FB posted what was going to happen to one of the characters which really was a pain. I guess contract battles :(.

    I'm going to be reading a lot more too :)

  7. I love your "word study" posts, Beth!

    Our high temperature has been in the mid-eighties today, so some good iced tea would taste good about now.:-)

    Our TV-watching seems to be limited to the news and a bit of "reality" shows - The Biggest Loser and American Idol. We will be watching the Preakness this Saturday, though! Golf is popular here, too.:-)

    Enjoy your evening on this Thursday!

  8. I hear ya on the shows ending. I am switching to History Channel and TLC for the summer until some new shows come back. I was happy to see that Ducky would be back next season. Warm weather here this weekend so looking forward to some outdoor activities here. I love sweet tea..drink it everyday only using artificial sweeteners.Hope your weekend is wonderful. :-)

  9. Here in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, we have got a bit of a cool spell as a cold front goes by. I just planted a tomato plant that I got 2 for 1 at Home Depot today. One is planted and one to go. I brought the planted one in the house as well tonight. Tomorrow I will plant the other one. I also got a couple of Strawberry plants for $2.50. They are awesome looking Everbearing Strawberries. Have a great day tomorrow Beth.

  10. Oh I'm so sad that Desperate Housewives is done. I too dearly loved that show. Other than Dancing With the Stars, American Idol, there just isn't anything much left to watch. I do like Criminal Minds, but don't see it very often.,

  11. What a day Beth, we have just 4 more episodes Of Desperate Housewives . I shall be sad to see it go Just loved that show.
    Have a Lovely Weekend
    Hugs Sheila and Wile-e xx

  12. I love Y&R too, but I gave up taping it and just watch when I can. It's very addictive!!
