#A to Z Challenge–N


Now ‘N’

Which stands for Netflix. Which is what I did when I wasn’t visiting with friends or family. Here are some of the shows I watched:

BFG (Big Friendly Giant) Held up to the book quite well. My Review Here.

finding dory with friend

Oh, this was delightful! I loved how they treated the mental disability as a special ability. I LOVED the octopus!!!

13 reasons

After two children’s shows, I thought I’d go serious with this one. It ends in a rather triggery manner so if suicide is difficult for you to watch fast forward that part. The rest is a good reminder to be good to others and not jump to our own conclusions. Though delicate in nature, it would be good to watch with your teens so as to discuss relationships and how we each see things differently.

calling the midwife

I love this show. I had wanted to be a midwife at one time in my life. I gave birth to my last two at home and found the experience far superior to hospital birth. Since I was only a season behind I found this newest, of the fifties and sixties interesting. The move from the healthier home birth to the overmedicated hospital births and the result of medication that caused birth defects very sad, though a truism in our history. I love how it follows the history of women!

I was surprised to see this on Netflix. It, too, followed the book. Though I didn’t read the first one I read The World According to Bob. My Review Here. Which prompts me now to go look up more by the author.

growing up wild

Helped me fall asleep. It was cute but the narrator made the show seem immature.

3percent

One of the shows I looked at and didn’t follow through was 3%. I kinds of found it boring. Maybe I’ll try again later.

Next, there were others I tried and didn’t stay with are Life in Pieces, MST3000 (Actually watched it with family. One of many shows we watched that caused us all to laugh together.)

My sincerest apologies. For the past few days, to those who read these, I have been MIA. It is Mostly because I have been in Motion. We Motored to Reno where I stayed at my daughter’s while she stayed with her friends. It was as if I had my own apartment for a week.

I never had that. I went from my parents’ home to my husband’s home. After four kids and divorce, I was in charge of my own place but shared it with my children who were becoming teens. After children left the nest I married again. Another husband’s home. Most of my children have had the chance to live in their own places and learn who they are. I am proud that they have had that chance. Well, my oldest lives with his dad, but at this point, Dad needs the company. So oldest still needs that time. But the other three have had that experience and come out quite nicely.

So for this past week, Kali and I had the place to ourselves and enjoyed the quiet time thoroughly. Most of the time I found myself watching Netflix or Hulu. Daughter doesn’t have cable. So it was good to catch up on my watch lists.

Apartment living wasn’t as nice as living in the country. Every time Kali needed to go outside she had to have on her harness and leash. I had to remember poop-bags. Daughter’s apartment complex supplies the bags at certain grassy areas but I tried to remember ours. It was good to have them in my pocket. The time or two I forgot, it was nice they were still handy. It was irritating that others didn’t avail themselves of the bags. I assumed they were more into cell-phone gazing than connecting with their dogs. So I didn’t walk in the grass. I stayed on the cement nearby and Kali walked the length of her leash.

Meanwhile, this is Merely ‘M’! I nneed to Move on to the nnext letter in the #AtoZChallenge. Must Move on!!!
