Thursday Thoughts

It's quiet here, which I think means the roof project is finally finished. The last of the soffit went up this morning and some other final bits & pieces were finished. After 3 weeks (but not every single day), the big project is done. I think this weekend I'll spend some time outside looking up & admiring where a huge chunk of the savings went!

Dinners this week:
Apricot-Mustard Glazed Grilled Chicken with sauteed green beans
Fettuccine with Grilled Shrimp and parmesan, bacon, arugula, basil, tarragon, tomato cream sauce
Gianduja-Stracciatella Gelato for dessert.

Books: I finished Brighton & thought it was a great read. I have not started a new book - too noisy and/or too tired.

Magazines: I read 3 new magazines, so at least that pile is under control.

TV Shows: I have no idea why I was so excited to have Dish reconnected because several times since last Friday I've scrolled through the entire guide and found nothing to watch. We got caught up on The Night Of and the final episode is this Sunday. Otherwise, we've been watching OITNB Season 4 (we have 3 episodes left) and UKS Season 2 (we have 7 episodes left). We also watched Season 1 Episode 1 of Bloodline on Netflix. I like it enough to watch the next episode. Who needs Dish when everything we watch seems to be on Netflix these days?!

Movies: I, regrettably, watched the remake of Point Break. Words cannot describe how awful it is. I fast-forwarded through it and laughed and rolled my eyes. The original is a movie that struck a chord with me and my brother. It was wonderful the day we were talking and discovered we both loved the original Point Break and could always get sucked into it. It was a brother-sister bonding thing, with his wife rolling her eyes and when I told SP, him rolling his. But the new one? So. Bad.
