Thursday Thoughts


  • I was excited about the warm temperatures until my allergies attacked. They are the worst they've ever been. It's awful. I have sneezing attacks (sneezing 5+ times in a row) several times a day followed by blowing my nose into many, many tissues. It's disgusting. I constantly clear my throat. Every afternoon I take a decongestant and nap then every night I take an allergy pill and toss & turn all night. Plus the eye twitches. So annoying.
  • Being old-ish and having many health issues means we qualified to get our coronavirus vaccines. We were lucky enough to get appointments and later today we will be getting shot #2. I'm both excited to be vaccinated and scared of shot #2 reactions. After shot #1 my arm was super sore for 3 days. Hopefully this 2nd one won't be worse but...
  • I guess spring is coming since we spotted the fat groundhog in the yard this morning. Also, this weekend is "change the clocks" weekend.
  • We went out on the deck for a bit during the warm weather. The darn squirrels have become quite bold. I think they buried their nuts in every single herb pot we have on the deck (I think we have 10 of them). Then they dug them up and there are big holes in the dirt in the pots plus smaller, corresponding piles of dirt on the deck. I guess the rest of the dirt fell through to the yard. Maybe it's revenge since we trimmed the walnut trees?

What We're Eating:

  • Salad. All week. Greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, olives, hard boiled eggs, ham, grated cheese, homemade dressing.
  • Dessert: M&M Cookies

What We're Watching:

  • Judas and the Black Messiah (HBOMax). It was very good. It's a "based on a true story" film about the betrayal of Fred Hampton, chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party in late-1960s Chicago, at the hands of William O'Neal, an FBI informant. 
  • We've now watched 5 episodes of Doom Patrol Season 1 (HBOMax). I'm not sure I like it. In episode 4, things veered way off the previous story line into something totally new and now I'm just kind of confused about the whole show.
  • I liked the conclusion to WandaVision (Disney+).
  • I'm losing interest in SEALTeam. It seems like they want to grow the characters, but that means breaking up the team which means there wouldn't be a team, so we get boomerang stories where someone leaves, then decides to return, and repeat. 

What I'm Reading:

  • Magazines.
