Thursday Thoughts

The weather earlier this week was wonderful. SP reached a "use it or lose it" point with vacation accrual, so he took this week off for vacation. We can't do much or travel anywhere (thanks coronavirus) but on Tuesday we took a drive to Mingo Creek Park. The park has relatively flat and paved walking trails, so that was good for the wheelchair. There are 2 covered bridges and the historic Henry House, a house built in the early 1800s. There's also an observatory, but it's closed now because of the pandemic. We drove up to it and wished we gone a couple weeks earlier when there was still fall color because the view from the parking lot would have been a fantastic collage of color.

What We're Eating:

What We're Watching:

  • The Queen's Gambit (Netflix). We finished this and it was excellent.
  • We started Babylon Berlin (Netflix). We're 4 episodes in & enjoying it so far even though sometimes we're a little confused. 
  • Tonight Grey's Anatomy is back! As is The Unicorn. 
  • The Amazing Race continues to be fun. It's always fun watching people try to drive stick shift in Europe. And when people get hopelessly lost.
  • The Undoing is still holding our interest but I was disappointed at the turn the show seemed to take in the last episode. In my mind, I'd been wondering if that was going to happen but I was hoping not because it seems such an obvious choice but maybe it's just a distraction? I don't want to be too specific in case people haven't watched.
  • Fargo Season 4 continues to bore and with the latest episode, disappoint because while the train station scenes were great, my favorite character was killed, so boo.
  • The Great British Bake Off (Netflix). Oh gosh I feel terrible for saying this, but watching them create ice cream cakes in a 90+ degree tent was amusing.

What I'm Reading:

  • The Cairo Affair by Olen Steinhauer. Not a Milo Weaver book. It was good, although for soem reason I had trouble remembering everything/keeping it all straight as I read.
  • Triptych by Karin Slaughter. This is the first Will Trent book of the series. It was good, I couldn't put it down, but also, yeesh the villain was disgusting. 
  • Them Bones by Carolyn Haines. This was better than I expected although the main character has conversations with a ghost.
