Thursday Thoughts

We're still in the red. Stay Home. Avoid people. My emotions are all over the place.

Last Saturday I left the house for the first time since March 7. Going out on the deck doesn't really count. I put on jeans, not sweats, and real shoes, not slippers. It was weird. We did some curb-side pick ups (beer, food) and also drove around the city, the parks, etc. It was good to get out on a nice spring day but it also made me sadder because it made me really miss and long for meals at restaurants, spontaneous stops in coffee shops, spur of the moment trips into tea shops/bakeries, etc. So I'm not sure if getting out was good or not so good for my mental health.

I miss life three months ago.

On the other hand, neither of us much wants to enter a store so we're still doing curbside pickups. We got rid of our old deck furniture in January because it was in terrible, terrible shape, figuring we'd find new stuff in March. Nope. The tiny indoor bistro table/chairs set in the sunroom is now "take outside when we need to" furniture. I no longer have any interest in shopping for new furniture.

Of course the one year we plant flowers in early May, the cold temps and frost warnings immediately show up. Sigh. We never bother with outdoor flowers/herbs until Memorial Day but this year, a friend's son was selling flower flats as a fundraiser, ready on May 2, so we bought some and planted them on Sunday. The weather from now until Saturday afternoon might kill them.

What We're Eating:

What We're Watching:

  • Deadwater Fell. It was good but sad.
  • Killing Eve. Oh my gosh! I sort of saw that ending of episode 4 coming but was still shocked! Halfway through through season 3.
  • Dark Waters (movie). Kind of predictable/formulaic but still good. Based on a true story.
  • Just Mercy (movie). Also kind of predictable/formulaic but still good. Based on a true story.
  • We started Agatha Raisin on Acorn TV and like it so far.
  • Spring Baking Championship. We always enjoy seeing what the bakers create. I liked all three finalists.
  • What's left of our usual shows ended this week/end on Sunday (Batwoman, The Rookie, SEAL Team).

What I'm Reading:
I started a Ken Bruen book but I just don't think I enjoy his style of writing. I find myself not picking it up the way I constantly pick up other books. I might just quit.
