Chuckles and Chortles

Hi, blogging pals! Happy June to all of you. Sorry I've been absent for this long. I've been dealing with a shitstorm over here with what should have been a trusted family member, and because it took me totally by surprise, I've been struggling to process it. I will say that the most amazing man in the world is also the most amazingly supportive. Now, let's leave it at that and move on. Because you all have your own problems to worry about.

How is everyone doing? What are you up to these days? We've done some outdoor work, some gardening and lots of indoor stuff. And walking. We always try to get out and walk. We've got a list of chores to complete, one of them being to paint our balcony. And because the gardening centres have opened up, we're planning to visit and pick up some plants, soil and whatever else is needed. In other words, we're trying to keep busy.

On Netflix, Blacklist is one of the series we're watching and I have to say that James Spader is a really good actor. We've also started Space Force and Dark, but I don't have an opinion yet since we're not far enough along.

I can't think of anything else, so let's get to the reason you're really here: the funny stuff! Enjoy and have a wonderful day.

Happy new week, blogging friends! How is everyone doing? And what's going on where you are? Nothing has changed around here yet. I've read that the province will start implementing minor changes this month with businesses but for now we're all still on self-isolation. I think caution is important at this time, so I'll deal with whatever needs to be done to keep the vulnerable safe. No one is happy about this situation but sometimes sacrifices are made for the good of all.

Okay, off my soapbox...

So we finished watching The Innocence Files and - boy oh boy - was that ever hard to get through. The most amazing man in the world and I were stunned at what these innocent people (and they are just a drop in the bucket of injustice) went through. If you haven't seen this documentary on Netflix, you might want to give it a try. We're now only watching Life in Pieces (very funny!) but we are thinking of also starting up Modern Family. Has anyone watched this? I've heard a lot of about it but don't know much else.

Our weather has been up and down but there have been a few decent days, and when they come around, we take advantage of them. One of those days we spent in the garden. We cleaned up, took out a few seasonal items, prepared the bird bath, hung the bird feeder and got rid of the weeds. Doesn't sound like much but I loved it! Nothing like being outside and enjoying nature. I don't have a lot of things planted yet but there are some gorgeous tulips putting on a show as I write this.

And that's all for now. Let's get to the funny stuff. We could all use some humour. Enjoy!

Here we are again! Happy Monday to all. I hope you're doing well, blogging pals. Nothing has changed around here. We're still social distancing and most places are still closed. And our weather is still not that great. We had a couple of days of sunshine and warm temperatures, so we made sure to take advantage and go out walking. Still waiting for those perfect days to do some gardening and maybe take our bikes out for a spin. They'll get here. In the meantime, we're keeping busy around the house. One of the most enjoyable things I did last week was have a group video chat with three very old and dear friends. We've known each other since our early teens and spent a lot of time together throughout high school. Oh, the memories...some of them crazy fun! We chatted for over two hours and had a blast. I'm really thankful for modern technology to be able to do this.

And what are the most amazing man in the world and I watching? Well, we wrapped up Waco, which we enjoyed, and also started and finished season 2 of After Life, a comedy-drama written by Ricky Gervais who also stars in it. Such a good show! We're now enjoying Life in Pieces (hilarious!) and The Innocence Files, a documentary that focuses on wrongfully convicted people who spent years in prison needlessly. It is difficult to watch. Spending any time at all in jail for something you didn't do is excruciating. Now imagine doing that for 10, 15, 20 or over 30 years! I can't even. It is very heartbreaking learning about these injustices. Anyhow, if you subscribe to Netflix, you may want to give this a go.

That's all for now, folks, Enjoy the humour below and have a beautiful day ahead!

And finally, where are you at these days? Most days I'm number 3 and number 6.

Happy Monday Tuesday, my friends! How is it going? How are you all feeling? How are things where you are? Not much has changed around here. We're still practicing social distancing and most places are shut down. I wanted to post yesterday but I did a quick grocery run, and honestly, I just wasn't in the right head space after that. Food shopping has become a tiresome chore. It has to be planned well, so I don't forget anything, and it has to be executed in a strategic way, so I can be in and out as quickly and efficiently as possible. Aside from the fact that I don't want to be in the store longer than necessary, I'm also mindful of the people waiting in line outside, the same line that I was in before I got a chance to do my shopping. It's not just about me. Anyhow, despite it all, I managed to get everything I had on my list, and then some. All the shelves were fully stocked; more than enough for everyone. I'm really grateful for that!

What are we watching? Well, we are coming to the end of the series 'You', which was more enjoyable than I expected. And we're on the last episode of 'Freud', one of the strangest shows I've ever seen, but also very unique and intriguing. Freud is displayed as a coke addict, which surprised me, but my husband says he really was into that drug. I didn't know since I don't know much about his life, but after looking up information through Professor Google, I found out it's true. The things you learn!

Another show we're watching on Netflix is Waco; a miniseries about the events of the 1993 Waco siege. Very captivating! Oh, and we just finished watching 'The Ten Commandments. I don't know how many times we've seen this movie but it just never gets old. A classic. Have you seen it?

Okay, that's more than enough blah, blah, blah... Let's get to the funny stuff. Enjoy the giggles and have a great day.

Happy Monday, blogging peeps. How are you doing? And what's going on where you are? Are you mixing up the days like I am? I almost forgot about posting my weekly humour because I forgot it's Monday. One day just seems to be blending into the next one lately. Ah well, at least we're keeping busy and staying sane.

We recently finished watching Ozark and Riverdale on Netflix, and we're now zipping through two other shows: Freud (thriller/crime series) and You (psychological thriller). They're okay, so far. We had considered starting The Walking Dead series but decided against it for now. Has anyone seen it? What do you think about it? And what else can you recommend on Netflix that is worth trying? Please share in the comments.

Enjoy the funny stuff below, and keep well!
