Thursday Thoughts

Not much has happened the past week because SP is sick. He's taken a couple sick days and worked from home a couple of days while he sniffles and coughs. He saw a doctor and has some medicine, but whatever he has, it's lingering. He's never sick this long. I'm the one who gets sick and has it last for weeks. I think I am sick, but I'm not sure because I'm not sniffly, I'm not coughing, I'm just tired and my nose feels congested and I sometimes feel like I have a cough coming on, but then nothing happens.

What We're Eating:

  • Lasagna ( my mom's recipe - yum!)
  • Chicken Tacos
  • Dessert: French Almond Browned Butter Cakes

What We're Watching:

  • We blew through a 6 episode show from Norway called Beforeigners (HBO Europe). The show is set in Oslo. The premise is that suddenly there are flashes of light in the sea that turn out to be a phenomenon where people from the past (the Stone Age, the Viking Age, and the 19th century) suddenly emerge in the present. Fast forward several years & the "beforeigners" are struggling to fit into modern Norwegian society. When one is found dead, a cop who found the first beforeigners and his new partner, a beforeigner who has become a police officer, investigate. It's really good and we can't wait for Season 2!
  • Movie: Marriage Story (Netflix). The movie was a Best Picture nominee and Laura Dern won Best Supporting Actress. It's an excellent movie, but not one I could watch again as it's painful to watch Charlie & Nicole navigate their divorce and feelings. The scene where they let loose screaming at each other? Yikes! The movie is somehow both sad and uplifting.  
  • Movie: We watched Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw. I have never seen a Fast & Furious movie. But this one has Idris Elba. So we watched, and enjoyed it for what it is.
  • John Oliver is back.
  • Otherwise, just the usual shows.

What I'm Reading:

  • I finished The Limehouse Text (Barker & Llewelyn Series #3) from Will Thomas. It was good. I have a few other books to read before requesting the next books in the series.
  • Magazines.
