Thursday Thoughts

I don't know what to say about the news headlines, so I'm not going to say anything.

Tomorrow our county enters the Green Phase. Whoo! We have our hair appointments scheduled for first thing tomorrow! For me, it's been 16 weeks since my last cut/color. I've been hiding my hideous gray roots and unruly mane under a variety of head bands, bandannas, hats. Not that I've gone anywhere besides the driveway and deck. But still. I had this crazy idea I might not hate my gray hair after I let it grow in for a while, maybe it would look distinguished (hahahahahaha I just look like an old hag) and that maybe I'd like having long hair again (hahahahahaha). Nope. I do not. It's white, not gray, and there's a lot of it. Also, I forgot how much I hate long hair. It takes forever to wash, rinse, condition, rinse, and even then it's still tangled and painful to comb then it takes twice as long to blow dry and just... UGH. How can anyone stand hair longer than chin-length?!

Tomorrow, all will be fixed. I will be happy.

Bonus: We scheduled a curb-side pick up at a bakery for special Donut Day paczki.

What We're Eating:

  • We used the grill rotisserie to roast a whole chicken, so that's what we've been eating this week, plus potato salad & sliced tomatoes/steamed broccoli
  • Two nights we ate grilled hot dogs. Hot dogs are a once every three years kind of meal.
  • Dessert: Cast-Iron Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

What We're Watching:

  • Killing Eve (BBC) ended its third season (8 episodes). It was good but also a little untidy, is maybe the word I'm looking for? Maybe not. We sort of find out who killed X in episode 1. I don't want to spoil anything by writing anything else. 
  • We watched Run (HBO) and enjoyed it. It's 7 episodes, each a bit under half an hour long. 
  • We started White Lines (Netflix) and so far, after 2 episodes, are intrigued. Ten episodes total, each an hour long.
  • We got caught up on Amy Schumer Learns to Cook (Food Network) and some other Food Network shows but still have a Worst Cooks to watch.
  • I watched The Assistant (movie). It was good but slow. Also, it made me angry! 
  • We watched Midway (movie). It was good. As always, movies like this sent us to our tablets as we watched so we could look up details on the war and battles. 

What I'm Reading:
A Conspiracy of Bones by Kathy Reichs. I'm wondering if I missed a book, or forgot something, because it seemed like I missed some key developments. But, it was good.
