I had hoped to be finished with at least one of my projects today but in spite of hurting hands from constant knitting loom and needles, everything is still in progress.

But I did enjoy the accompanying shows today, Raising Dion and Absolutely Anything. And currently, I am watching This Beautiful Fantastic. Trailer YouTubes below.

I can’t wait for season two! This was a very touching show!

So funny!

I’m only an eighth into it and I know I will love it.

What are you watching?

Theater Thursday


I just finished watching a good quiet show on Amazon Prime. Not exciting but heartwarming and great for my book-reading friends.

Hope you enjoy it like I did.


Per Linda:  Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “blue.” Talk about the first blue object you see when you sit down to write your post. Have fun!

 

The sky wasn’t very blue today. Prescribed burning was taking place up in the nearby hills. Cough, cough! I know they do it to keep us from having a big fire. But when you are downwind it doesn’t seem so healthy.

There is a blue tinge to the picture on Netflix that says, Time Trap. I LOVED this movie! I wish it were a series! Yet it seems to have bad ratings. As we finished, my husband and I were so excited about it and wanting to see it again soon. Check out the trailer here:

 

The only reason we went searching for something to watch was that we were finished, at last, with Van Helsing. It isn’t my favorite series but it kept me interested and the cliffhanger ending made me mad, yet hoping to see that last season coming up.

I have to admit to being a little blue about summer ending. Not nearly as much as previous summers. As I hate when it gets to the point where it is too cold to swim. But since I haven’t had the chance to swim in two years, getting a chance to cool off is more along the lines of staying inside. Even with no AC, it is still cooler with fans and windows open than outside.

I don’t want to complain about the weather. It has been quite a reasonable summer here for us. And only this day is smokey, unlike last year when it was smokey a lot. Temperatures haven’t gotten above the nineties.

Hey, I forgot to tell you about last weekend! It was absolutely wonderful. My offspring came up to see us. They set up camp at the campgrounds about 12 miles from here. That way we all got to visit while in the evening we had a campfire and fun. But it was only for the weekend. So now I miss them and feel blue. I can’t wait until we all see each other again. I’m thinking I need to make a trip down to see them before the winter and icy roads hit. I need to go will the skies are still blue. Did you see what I did there? I ended on BLUE!

As we are finishing the last couple episodes of The 100, I was trying to think of other shows I’ve watched and haven’t shared I’m sad to see the end of The 100 coming in the seventh season coming up on The CW. But I refuse to watch it with the wait between episodes and putting up with commercials. So I’ll wait until Netflix finally gets that last season.

I couldn’t remember what I had watched but I finally figured out that if I click on my profile picture on Netflix, then go to account and viewing activity, I found a list I could download and go through.

 

We watched Crazyhead. It was fun, different.

The show Typewriter was fun though a bit for a younger audience.

You all probably watched this long ago, but I finally got around to it and found it entertaining, Silence!

All of these were from my Netflix list. I’ll go through my other lists soon. Now I am wishing I would have kept a paper copy of my shows.

 

 

 

Things We’ve Watched Thursday


I know it’s been a while since I caught you up on our latest binges. Now that C’s shoulder is healing, and Kali has become a dog who eats instead of one who seemed destined for death or at least well into a bulimic situation. So I have a bit more energy to tell about other parts of my life. Bingeing has kept us all sane as we heal. Here are some of the shows we’ve enjoyed.

Right now my husband is catching up with my brother, son, and I on The 100. I’m watching with him as I love rewatching good shows. I think it helps my writing to see how shows are put together.

I caught up with Orange Is the New Black. OMG! Get out your Kleenex. I fear the people who need to learn what the show was trying to teach probably won’t watch it. Meanwhile, those of us who understand and have learned empathy for others will find ourselves crying out loud. I actually had to leave the room and go cathartic release to C. I don’t often cry like that but I did when Poussey died way back when. If you haven’t please watch.

Occasionally, I watch stuff I know the rest don’t want to watch in-between group watchings. Ozark is one of those I can take or leave an the guys don’t seem to care either.

A fun light watch is Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries.

A while back we finished all of Stranger Things. LOVED IT!

That’s all the ones I can think of right now. I’ll find others soon! Happy pain-relieving distractions and writer studies!

That’s my contribution to One-Liner Wednesday. Thanks Linda!

 

Only Two Seasons? But Wait!


Well, as I told you yesterday we are binging many shows but as of a couple hours ago, we finished both seasons of Outlander on Netflix.

We closed up the living room and all walked to our rooms in despair.  But look what I just found Hulu:

YAY!!!

I love shows/books like this because it makes me learn more history while playing with Sci-fi and Time Travel. Meanwhile, I had a credit with Audible and picked up the Kindle version from the e-library. So I’ll get to see more in the book than the show could ever cover. I’m practically giddy!

My Latest Binges


My pain requires distractions. I can knit (loom-knit) to keep my hands busy. I watch shows to keep the mind occupied during the day. Those who might criticize might take drugs for your pains. They don’t work for me. This way, something productive happens while I watch or listen to a story.

Sometimes my brother and son and or husband join me. I like having others to watch with. I will watch it alone, but I want others with me because then we can talk about the show and things I might have missed or interpreted otherwise. How do you like watching shows, alone or in groups?

So my newest favorite is Outlander, It has surprised all of us how much we like this show. In fact, I am starting to read it (listen on Audible, too) tonight.

When my brother and son and husband aren’t available to watch with me, I am working my way through Riverdale, which can be a bit much even for me.

And Royal Pains, which is getting better in the later seasons. My biggest complaint is the little brother and how irritating he can be, but as he is married and has a wife to pull him in line, it grows on you. The doctor does seem to have a lot of McGivers using balloons.

We are finally caught up on Fear of the Walking Dead. Tonight’s show was fun with the old west ghost town. And I laughed so hard a couple weeks ago when there were flying zombies!

And now we’re into NOS4A2 It isn’t as scary as it seems on the commercials. In fact, it is kind of interesting.

My husband loves and has drawn me into Jessica Jones. We’re watching the latest season.

What are you watching?

Royal Pains Mid-Binge Thoughts


A friend suggested recently that she just finished binging on Royal Pains. Finding myself in a binging lull, I decided to try it. My brother and my son have in protest joined me most days. They both have their own rooms and the same access to all the same shows so no one is pulling their limbs to watch. We are all equally bored and yet there, binging.

Our biggest gripe is the younger brother, Evan. Irritating! Without him, it is another medical show that could take itself seriously, if it tried. But I suddenly couldn’t stop looking at Evan. Who did he remind me of? After a couple seasons, I finally figured it out. First here’s a picture of Evan:

Here is his look-a-like, I think:

 

What do you think? Could they be related, same person, or coincidence? Clue? I don’t think anything but two very nice looking people. Love their eyes!

By the way, I think we are finally at season 5. So I may be finished within a few days. (8 seasons). Thinking I may need to watch the L Word again!


No this isn’t about Mamas and the Papas. Just couldn’t figure a good title for this small bloggy. Besides, bet that earworm took! 😀

I don’t have enough time to gather all the looms to do a Make-it Monday: Two sock-looms are in use, there are a few dolls I need to stuff and sew closed, a little hat for a doll on the littlest loom, a baby hat on the next bigger, all in process and nothing near finished product.

So, while knitting, binging, right? Tried Royal Pain but too flirty and not enough medical to keep my interest. I’ll try again later. Instead, I went for an old favorite that has added new seasons: Call the Midwife. I love that show. I miss Miranda (Chumie) but the newer cast is still sweet. One of the best parts of this show is following women and health issues over the past couple of centuries. If you were there at the beginning, there were few cars only bicycles. They even went through war.

I’m at about 1962 in a most recent episode. They talk about Kennedy and Cuba crises. So it isn’t just the women’s health it shows what else is going on in the world at the time. On the last episode, they showed the results of the drug given for morning sickness back then Thalidomide.

This show doesn’t hold back when it comes to things women have been through over the years. I do so wish the midwife was a more acceptable way for birth. My last two were homebirths so I have a love for that kind of birth. Don’t get me wrong. There is a good reason to have hospitals and doctors on hand, but I think the woman to woman care is missing for those who need to go to the hospital.

My second experience in the hospital were people running around yelling the phones were out. My first was a most uncomfortable affair with not the slightest care as to what I wanted or what baby and I actually needed. I studied a lot about being a midwife, but by the time I had babies three and four, I didn’t have the time or energy to go for it. So this show helps fulfill some of that. I find I love all the characters and how well they tell the story. And that music gets me going! I can guarantee that I will shed at least a tear with every viewing! This is a herstory that everyone should watch and maybe get the other side of history.
