Thursday Thoughts

A couple of weeks ago, when SP was at the farmers market, he bought some peaches. The peach lady told him that the peaches are early this year and the season would likely end earlier than usual. We figured that meant that there might not be fresh, local peaches for our annual Labor Day weekend peach pie, so we decided to make it early this year. We made it this past weekend. The peaches were really juicy and it was a delicious peach pie. All gone now.

This is how I feel every day. How I've felt every day since November 8. I'm still struggling with finding the balance of being an informed person versus the fear, hopelessness, despair, outrage, frustration, and tears I often feel when reading the news.

What We're Eating:

  • Grilled Steak with salad & corn on the cob
  • Pasta Salad - lots of veggies: tomato, cucumber, carrot, grilled zucchini, roasted red pepper, kalamatas, green olives
  • Dessert: Peach Pie, leftover pizzelles

What We're Watching:

  • Game of Thrones. Finally, a battle with a dragon! Yes, I was cheering for the dragon. I was upset when Bronn hit it and the poor dragon yelped in pain. SP looked at me and asked if I realized it had just incinerated hundreds of people. Well, yes, but they were the "bad" guys! Can't wait to see Cersei's reaction. To find out Jamie's fate. If the dragon is OK. For Jon and Bran's reunion and what Bran tells Jon.
  • I am enjoying the second season of Animal Kingdom. I'm curious to see where the Baz-Smurf thing goes (how far it goes and how it impacts the other family).
  • We finished Kimmy Schmidt Season 3. I remain so-so about the show. Has some good moments, Has some rather silly stupid moments.
  • This coming week: Season (and Series) Finales for Orphan Black & Broadchurch.

What I'm Reading:

  • I finally read The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. Really good book. Lots of feelings and I'm not sure I can really express them,
  • I also read Michael Connelly's latest, The Late Show, which is not a Bosch or Lincoln Lawyer novel but introduces a new character, Renee Ballard. As usual with a Connelly novel, I couldn't put it down. I read it in a day.
