Most of you know I live in Southern California so we don’t have TRUE seasons here. However, I do enjoy fall and spring because typically they are moderate and pretty in their own ways. Right now the mornings are cool but by the afternoon there is a definite hint of spring in the air. Perfect.
We’ve been trying to hit church on Thursdays but last Thursday my club met to discuss the movie Parasite. Today, is our backup day but not sure we can attend because my daughter now sings at a church across town which we drive her to and then I have to volunteer. Might be watching online again.
Nothing planned for this week. Well, one possible theatre meeting but it hasn’t been confirmed and probably won’t happen. It’s so nice to be home in the evenings.
I finished Before She Knew Him by Peter Swanson. I had not read this author before but he has quite a few books out and I really enjoyed this one. Review should be posted early in the week.
What should I read next? Maybe The Grace Year.
I finally saw Parasite. As you know, it’s gotten plenty of hype and took an Oscar for Best Picture and Best International Feature Film and I believe Best Director too. I waited to see it because my discussion group chose it for our February discussion and I wanted to see it with them so we could all react accordingly. VERY interesting film. Not sure it conveyed what it intended to convey. At least. not entirely. As for the subtitles, you don’t even notice them and half the time don’t even need them. The acting is too good.
Still watching The Crown. Almost done with season one. Very interesting and enjoyable.
Tonight, The Walking Dead starts up again. As a loyal fan, I will tune in. I hope the writers pull it together this season.
New Things I’ve Tried:
I like to make my pasta sauce from scratch. I am 50% Italian and there is no better sauce than homemade sauce but this one (Prego Farmer’s Market) was a step up from your typical jarred Prego. Pretty good. Tastes freshly made. No hint at all that it came from a jar and I only used half a jar because of how rich it was. Anything to make the dinner hour easier, right?
- Really good lip balm
- My new computer glasses
- Lush face masks (any of ’em)
- High quality hand creams
What are you looking forward to this week? I really need to do some purging. My living room and family room always look cluttered when I get home. Even when I spend time straightening, it still looks cluttered so something has to go. I am looking forward to fixing that issue because who wants to come home and immediately feel anxious? No one.
