SUNDAY POTPOURRI: BOOKS, NETFLIX, & A FAMILY TREE…

Good morning Sunday!  A day to relax, read, watch movies…and reflect on family.  Above, my younger brother and his wife are hanging out on the “family tree” with their three grandchildren:  Luc, Gavin, and America.

They live on the ranch where I grew up, so I’m familiar with that tree.  It has been there, welcoming climbers, since I was a child.  I think.  Why am I not sure?  Well, we started out with a different house, so after my father built a newer one, the arrangement of the trees might be a bit of a blur. 

In the present, my brother and his wife live on the “family farm,” with fewer acres than we had growing up.  My mother sold off most of the farm in the 1990s.

When their grandchildren visit, they do enjoy climbing the very trees we climbed.  Here’s America, my grand-niece, enjoying a kitty.  She was born on September 11, 2008 (hence the name America).  I have never met her, except in photos.  I need to visit them all someday, but going “home” to the ranch is still an emotional situation.  I was last there on the day of my mother’s funeral.

Meanwhile, here at home, I had a wonderful day yesterday binge-watching Season 4 of Grace and Frankie.  It was the best season so far, IMO.  The show dealt with issues of aging, family dynamics, and how the characters are dealing with these issues.

Now I can’t wait for the next season!  That’s what happens when you watch ALL of the episodes.

Today I’m reading Seeing Red, by Sandra Brown, a book I’ve had for a while (since August 2017).  I’m loving it.

So…I may stay in all day, or go out to eat.  Or I might just go to Barnes & Noble, since I don’t have nearly enough books already…lol.

What does your day hold?

  1. Reading the NYT…watching SNL…tossing a roast in the slow cooker that will turn into Barbacoa Tacos for dinner…I also made spicy barbecue yesterday baked wings!

  2. Oh Laurel… Sounds like a very quiet Sunday! This morning I took my daughter clothes shopping after church (I start a little bit of student-teaching in the schools this week and needed to fill in my wardrobe with some professional pieces), and I got in a 5.5 mile run. Wrote a little bit on the blog, did a little studying and reading, and am looking forward to a quiet night. I think I might start the TV show Penny Dreadful after a blogger’s recommendation.

  3. My oldest loves to climb trees. One time I caught her in our neighbor’s outside and told her to get down as that wasn’t our property, LOL. I just finished prepping my blog post for tomorrow. I need to tend to laundry but will slowly start on sewing prep.

  4. Loved your pics Laurel. Whenever I’m bored, a trip to a bookstore is in order. Today was lunch and an Indie bookstore when the hub picked up Fire & Fury LOL

    1. Thanks for visiting, Diane, and I always love bookstore browsing. There are no Indie bookstores near me…just Barnes & Noble, but that works. Enjoy Fire & Fury! The bits I’ve read have made me furious…
