Thursday Thoughts

Another week, another Thursday, nothing exciting going on. I know restaurants are open, but with virus numbers rising a bit in the county and people becoming more & more anti-mask, we're not feeling comfortable with another restaurant outing. We're both starting to get a little stir crazy. Frustrated. Bored. Really bored. But then also lacking energy to do something, go somewhere. Because, really, where can we go? We agree nowhere indoors with other people. Outdoor activities like hiking and biking and kayaking are out (wheelchair). We could find a paved path, but in our experience, paved walking paths are always crowded. Much as we enjoy movies, no way are we going in a theater anytime soon (I think they re-open next week?). The Cultural Trust has cancelled/rescheduled next year's fall Broadway shows, so we have no shows in 2020, which is good because indoors/people/virus but also bad because bored, so bored.

At least I have some new library books. And SP got a pellet smoker so we're expanding our culinary horizons (or something like that).

What We're Eating:

What We're Watching:

  • 21 Bridges (movie). This was better than we expected. We enjoyed it a lot.
  • Harriet (movie). This was good, too. It sent us to our tablets to look up Harriet Tubman's biography. What an amazing woman!
  • Perry Mason (HBO). I've never seen the original show, or read the books, so I have no preconceived notions of how it should be. So far, I like this version. I like that it's set in 1932, I like Matthew Rhys as Perry Mason (if you haven't watched The Americans, you should). There are 8 episodes, a new one each Sunday.
  • We started Money Heist (Netflix). I've watched a lot of subtitled shows lately (White Lines, My Brilliant Friend) and this is another one. We've only watched 4 episodes and I think there are 31 total. So far, we are enjoying it.
  • New season of Worst Cooks (Food Network). Poor Alex Guarnaschelli, I don't think she knew what she was getting into, just how bad the cooks would be!

What I'm Reading:
  • Two Nights by Kathy Reichs. This one is not a Temperance Brennan novel so maybe that's why I missed it when it came out in 2017? I liked it, a lot.
  • The Good Killer by Harry Dolan. Maybe because this was a new author (for me) and new characters, I really enjoyed it/couldn't put it down.
