Downton Abbey is over. Long, heavy sigh. Since early January I’ve looked forward eagerly to Sunday evening and my time with Lady Mary, Cousin Violet, Bates, Anna and all the other characters who have populated Downton so well. Now it’s over. Of course, there will be another season. How could there not be after the runaway success of the past two?
And I will look forward to next year. But in the meantime, I’m suddenly at loose ends on Sunday evenings. Which MEANS . . . I can get back to doing what I should have been doing all along. Editing, writing, querying, blogging–even doing laundry and vacuuming. All the free time tasks I put aside to gaze adoringly at those dresses and that house and that library!
I miss all the people, upstairs and down, from Downtown already. But I’m also just a little bit glad to have one less delicious distraction to keep me from pursuing my dreams. Especially now that I’m on Pinterest . . .
