Today I woke up at 6:00 a.m, and then turned over to snooze a little. The sound of two texts woke me up again…and it was 8:45! How did that happen? LOL
I guess I needed the extra sleep, and thinking back, I remembered that I was binge-watching on Netflix until midnight! Another season of The Ranch was on, and even though I say I’ll never watch it again, I found myself there. Again. I like some of the characters, like the ones portrayed by Debra Winger and Sam Elliott, even though the things that they say almost always annoy me. LOL. I’m glad the Danny Masterson character is gone, although they spent several episodes “searching” for him. But…they’ve added Dax Shepard, whom I loved in Parenthood. I will never like the character played by Ashton Kutcher…he has to be the stupidest one on the show, now that Danny is gone. Again, LOL.
Can we say sheer torture? I tell myself that hanging in there while characters say and do irritating things is good practice for dealing with one or more of my adult children.
The current state of the world (and politics) brings out issues we didn’t know we had!
Meanwhile, the holiday season has grabbed me, and I did bring out some of my decorations. Just a few. I left my doll there on the pub table by my bookshelves, and added my miniature tree with the Coca Cola ornaments. The bear in the music box is one I’ve had for a while, and my Christmas coffee mug seemed appropriate:
Then I added my Mr. and Mrs. Santa bears beside the hall tree with other dolls, hats, etc….and my fake poinsettia:
By the hearth, I added these nutcracker figures next to my birdhouses, some of my regular features here:
This miniature tree has wooden framed ornaments with my grandchildren in each of them…from back when they were younger. A gingerbread bear hangs on the green cupboard that contains other trinkets…and favorite books.
So…what else? Oh, here is another view of the miniature “grandchildren” tree, with a candy cane bear on another cupboard:
So…I have a lot more I could bring out, but I’m done for now.
Today I plan to start reading Tell Me Lies, by Carola Lovering:
Yesterday, when I was out shopping…I had this Mini-Shepherd’s Pie for lunch:
How is your weekend shaping up? Do you binge-watch movies and shows, read books, or go out for fun and adventure?
