Thursday Thoughts

It took a full week but my stomach finally recovered from whatever was bothering it. It's nice to eat flavorful food again!

I tried to visit with my dad earlier this week. He came over to pick up some things and we sat out on opposite sides of the deck. After half an hour, it started raining. So that visit ended. I was annoyed because I'd checked the forecast and it did not look like rain in the morning. I hadn't seen him since March 9 and then all I got was half an hour. Stupid summer weather. Stupid virus.

Meanwhile I still haven't seen my mom. She is experiencing a terrible allergic reaction to something. She has awful hives. Dad took her to urgent care and then 3 days later to the ER. Mom said that the ER nurses told her they'd never seen a case of hives as bad as hers. It sounds awful. Last I heard, she was doing a bit better but she's taking a lot of medicine. The ER doctor quadrupled the dosage of the medicine urgent care gave her!

What We're Eating:
  • Grilled Pizza with fresh mozzarella, parmesan, provolone, tomatoes, prosciutto, fresh basil
  • Homemade Whole Wheat Bread topped with  Pimiento Cheese Spread, bacon, tomato, avocado
  • Special lunch treat:  Zucchini Fritters
  • Dessert: Milano cookies, M&M's
What We're Watching:
  • We finished Warrior Nun (Netflix). It ended on a cliffhanger but SP tells me he saw it was renewed for seasons 2 & 3, so that makes me happy.
  • We watched season 2 of Homecoming (Amazon Prime). It was just 7 episodes. It was a little lighter than season 1, which was nice, and I thought concluded the story nicely.
  • The Gentlemen (movie). This was a fun movie with a great cast.
  • The Hunt (movie). This movie is controversial. It's "a satirical thriller wherein wealthy Americans hunt “deplorables” for sport." I'm not going to say much more. It's over the top. It's a movie. Lighten up people. We enjoyed the fight scenes. We had a few laughs. We were entertained. If you want to know more about the movie/the controversy, just do a search.
What I'm Reading:
  • The latest Daniel Silva book, The Order. As always I enjoyed Gabriel Allon's latest adventure, especially one that wasn't an elaborately planned intelligence operation but rather more of a murder mystery.
  • The latest Sharon Bolton book, The Split. It held my attention but at the same time I felt like I'd read it before - ?
