Thursday Thoughts

Tomorrow is the first day of May! April seems to have zipped by while at the same time seeming to drag on.

I know that most people are having hair issues since we've been in Stay Home mode since March 14. But that was already 4 weeks after my last hair cut/color. I'm now at 11 weeks without a hair cut and without color to hide my gray roots. I'm getting a real good sense of just how gray, well, white, my hair is. It's not a happy thing. On the other hand, my hair care routine is wash, dry, brush, hide it all under a bandanna and make sure it's pulled low enough on the forehead to hide the ring of white hair. If I go out on the deck, I hide it under a hat.

Last weekend we were nebby neighbors. The most exciting stuff in weeks was going on! Neighbor across the street was having trees removed! And next-door neighbor was removing a tree! They actually used our driveway - their truck was in our driveway with the rope attached to the tree, they drove towards our deck, and tree came down, not even close to our property. They had a very narrow amount of space to work with as they tried to avoid pulling the tree onto their house, fence, or shed. They got it to fall right between the shed and fence (it's a partial fence just to, um, well, I have no idea, I guess give some privacy between the end of their drive/garage and our side yard?). Anyway, we were happy to help (by saying yes, you can use our driveway and side yard).

What We're Eating:

  • Pappardelle with Chicken in Red Sauce
  • Crunchy Pork Chops with Spiralized Zucchini
  • Dessert: Raspberry Chiffon Pie

What We're Watching:

  • Extraction (Netflix). Chris Hemsworth in an action movie. Perfect quarantine movie. Not much of a plot. Lots of action. Lots of a very good looking man.
  • We started Interrogation on CBS All Access. Apparently there's a free 30 day trial and someone wanted to watch the Star Trek shows (not me). But I did watch the first 2 episodes of Interrogation. We'll finish it (6 more episodes) but my gosh did I get angry and yell at the television during episode 1!
  • A while ago we cancelled our Dish service and switched to YouTube TV. They are currently offering free month-long trials of Showtime and Acorn TV, so we signed up for those. I'm not sure how much we'll actually be able to watch in 30 days. I guess we won't be watching anything on Netflix or Amazon.  
  • Anyway, we started watching Deadwater Fell with David Tennant on Acorn TV. We watched the first 2 of the 4 episodes and like it so far. Well, as much as one can like a show about 4 of 5 family members being killed in a fire and it was probably murder.
  • We finished The ABC Murders (Amazon). Episodes 2 & 3 were more exciting than episode 1.
  • Little Women (2019 movie). It was good. I get why people loved it, why it was nominated for pest picture, but for me, it was just another Little Women movie. Plus, Little Women was not one of the novels I really enjoyed.

What I'm Reading:
I finished Hell Bay and read Blood is Blood (Barker & Llewelyn Books #8 and #10) from Will Thomas. I hope the library re-opens soon so I can read #5 and #9.
