Series 1 of #Outlander : Diana Gabaldon

This is a science fiction, suspense and romantic story of Claire Randall, a combat nurse who is married to Frank Randall in 1945. Then, mysteriously she was pulled back in time , year 1743 where she crossed path with Janie Fraser, a Scottish warrior and through force marriage, she became his wife. Claire is now in dilemma to return to her husband in the twentieth century but, leaving Jamie behind whom she is passionate with surely will break her apart.

I saw the 8 episodes of Series 1 of the Outlander and I love the show. I was intrigued with all the characters and after knowing that Outlander is based from a novel written by Diana Gabaldon, I am now excited to read the book series. Season 2 will be aired next year and that's a long wait. Of course, I will be looking forward to watch the Season 2 of the Outlander but, I am now excited to read the book. I want to know what's the ending, LOL.

I like the character of Jamie. Sam Heughan portrayed the role well. I like the Wedding episode. LOL. Awww, I bet you like it too. How romantic that despite it was a forced wedding, he wanted to get married in the church. The first night was funny ... romantic and goodness, you missed a good episode if you missed it.

I can't tell if Claire will go back to present time and end up with Franck. There's nothing wrong with him and their relationship was perfect. What do you think? Oh my goodness, Black Jack is a hateful character. He is scary!

What do you think? Do you watch Outlander? Who is your favorite character?

#GoogleDoodle : First Day of #Autumn

Don't you love Google Doodle ? I do! It's always fun to see what's new and interesting for the day. It could be acknowledging a holiday, birthday or anniversary of influential people, weather, innovation, science and technology and so on. Today, I woke up so excited! Let me tell you, I am not a big fan of #summer. The weather is super cool ... that's exciting for me!

My husband went outside to turn on the pool pump and came back to tell me that this is the day that I love staying outdoors. He is right! The air is chilly at 6:30 AM , windy and hey, this is the start of my favorite time of the year.

The only set back is when all the leaves fall on the ground. That's a lot of raking and blowing to do. I decided to just mulch it , make it as a fertilizer. I will not worry that for now. I will just enjoy the cool weather up to February. I don't think if I will miss swimming at all.

How about you? Do you like Autumn? Don't you love to see the shedding of leaves?

Praying for Comfort : #StevenSotloff

How devastating it is to lose a son? Or, losing a member of your family to an untimely death and brutal killing? This is a jaw-dropping reality that we read and watch on the news and this should never happen. But hey, it did! A mother's plea was not heard. We are not living in the savage era but, I guess ... some parts in this world ... they still are. For us who respect life, who feared the punishment of God, and who loves humanity ... we are shaken to the core knowing that some humans are not acting humanely.

We will not point our fingers who to blame. This story is so complicated that even if we debate the issue, the life of Steven Sotloff will never be back and his family will never be the same ever again. I pray that God will bring comfort to his mom, his family and his friends who loves him. I pray that those who are responsible will suffer the consequence and there will be justice.
Let us examine ourselves ... our conscience, what do we get from this devastating news? Do we continue to hate? Live in anger? What do you think? The government should do something ... then, what?

Here's what I shared in my Facebook yesterday, the words of wisdom from #MahatmaGandi :

“When I despair, I remember that all through history
the way of truth and love
have always won.
There have been tyrants and murderers,
and for a time,
they can seem invincible,
but in the end,
they always fall. Think of it--always.”
