Thursday Thoughts


  • As usual in May, we are jumping right from running the heat to running the a/c - sometimes in the same day. 
  • Warm weather means we're hanging out in the sunroom more. 
  • Not only can I see everything blooming outside, my eyes can feel it. They're itchy, sore, watery, and swollen. This morning it looked like I had fat folds in my eyelids. I'm trying to not take medicine because it knocks me out but the alternative is to scratch my eyes out.

What We're Eating:

  • Pasta Primavera
  • Honey Sweet Marinated Chicken with rice & steamed broccoli
  • Dessert: cookies from Bethel Bakery, Milano cookies

What We're Watching:

  • We finished The Investigation (HBO). It was an interesting show. Definitely worth watching how the Danish investigators found the evidence to successfully prosecute the man who murdered a Swedish journalist.
  • We started The Underground Railroad (Amazon). Ten hour long episodes for a book I read in probably about 5 hours. It's good but it's so slow moving that we both are ready to give up on it. It's one thing to watch a slow, beautiful movie for 2-3 hours but 10 hours? 
  • We kept wondering when The Unicorn would return, especially because that United States of Al show does not look especially new/fresh/funny. Turns out CBS cancelled it, which makes us sad because we thought it was one of the better sitcoms.
  • SEAL Team. We like the show, even if at times it doesn't seem to make much forward progress. CBS decided to renew it but move it to Paramount+. So if we want to keep watching, we'll have to pay for Paramount+. I guess we'll be done with the show after next week. Sometimes I think the stuff we currently pay for doesn't get watched enough to justify the cost, why add another?

What I'm Reading:

  • Her Dark Lies by JT Ellison. I couldn't put it down. This is the first JT Ellison novel I've read and I think I'll start reading the others.
  • Kisscut, #2 in the Grant County series, by Karin Slaughter. Another good read with another creepy villain(s). 
  • Ocean Prey from John Sandford. I really like the Lucas Davenport series and don't see a drop in the quality like I do with other long running series. I think this is the 31st Lucas Davenport novel. I like that Lucas and the cast of characters has evolved over the years. This one was set in FL. It also pulls in Virgil Flowers and Bob & Rae.
  • Carrot Cake Murder and Cream Puff Murder, #'s 10 & 11 in the Hannah Swensen series from Joanne Fluke. They were the usual.
