Good morning! I hope your week is going well. I am cozy on the couch this morning with this little pup, thinking about my day. I have some errands to run in town, and then, because we had some sort of cold/cough/allergy situation around here last week, we rescheduled our Family Movie Night for tonight! Rhett and Kyrstin are providing dinner, and I heard a rumor that Peyton is bringing something sweet! We are watching The Batman. Which I am sure resembles in no way the one I watched as a kid with Adam West and the Batmobile.
I will leave you with some random thoughts and suggestions on this lovely Wednesday. In no particular order:
1. If you choose to wear eye makeup and are thinking about being lazy and trying to remove it with an old sample remover you found in your drawer and a cheap tissue, rethink your decision. You may or may not end up with an itchy, red, irritating sty in your eye. Just sayin'.
2. If you are looking for something to watch, Apple Tv + has a fantastic miniseries called We Crashed. Steve and I loved it! From IMDB-The greed-filled rise and inevitable fall of WeWork, one of the world's most valuable startups, and the narcissists whose chaotic love made it all possible.
It is based on real-life events and is so fascinating!
3. If the world news is getting too much for you and you want to be educated but not overwhelmed, pretend you live in another time by turning your tv to Buzzr, Game Show Network, or MeTV. Watching game shows and family shows like they used to be is fun, refreshing, and calming. Stars were talented people who loved their work, not just being famous. Gilligan's Island, The Brady Bunch, The Andy Griffith Show, and so many more are still around. They entertain. They don't politicize everything. They just Are.
Well, I am off to say my morning prayers. Thank you for the love for Rhett on my previous post! He read every single one! Have a cozy day with your people, my friends. Thanks for visiting! I will be around soon!
Enjoy your family movie night. Sounds like it will be fun.ReplyDelete
We found The Gameshow network and turn it on regularly as a needed break from the chaos of the world.ReplyDelete
Wednesday was a relatively good day at work even though we are still short staffed. Phil and I watched Mysterious Island late Sunday evening. Patrick Stewart was in it. Written by Jules Vern Interesting and a bit scary at times. We have Roku tv to watch. Good things to find, especially on TBN. Have a good week!ReplyDelete
Agreed...love the old shows and yes, I remember well the Batmobile! We've been rewatching some favorites on Acorn...Brokenwood Mysteries, Doc Martin along with some old favorites like Nanny McPhee. LOVE family movie night...snacks, movie, curled up, nothing could be better!ReplyDelete
We watch Andy Griffith every night while we eat dinner:) Love the old shows and game shows too. We have so many political ads running here, mute button is getting a workout:) Enjoy your day and movie night dear friend, HUGS!ReplyDelete
I love the advice about watching shows from another time. I actually do this in my life and it truly is a blessing. You and I always think so much alike my friend! Hugs to you. ~JuliReplyDelete
Hope you enjoyed your movie night! We watch MeTV quite a bit around here, the late night news usually doesn't stand a chance against Hogan's Heroes (I never watched it originally so it's nice to have a "new to me" old show to watch) and my husband loves Andy Griffith. Need to look into Apple TV+. Hope you are having a terrific Thursday!ReplyDelete
Hope you are all well! I've been watching Leave It to Beaver on MeTv some mornings - I remember it from my childhood -- yes, I am THAT old! Take care!ReplyDelete
I needed to kill some time today, waiting to pick up a kid, and I thought, what better place to hang out than at Billie Jo's website. It made me smile and feel cozy. I enjoyed every post I read (I was waaaaay behind!!!) and of course loved all your beautiful pictures!ReplyDelete
Such a cozy picture of your puppy! I love MeTV! I've also been watching Adam 12 in the evenings. Like you say, honest wholesome TV with actors who just want to act.ReplyDelete
Hi just found your blog. We have been watching The Donna Reed show and Patty Duke show on Roku tv.ReplyDelete
