I was typing a date last night and it just hit me, holy crap I think my Dad passed away today (many years ago). Turns out I was a couple days off. Weird I thought of it because I’m not one to look back. Except when it comes to grudges, ha ha.
Sorry for the lack of posts this week. Iggy takes up a lot of my free time. I love this dog more than ice cream!
You know what I discovered recently? RedBox. I wasn’t able to stream anything and I was in need of some Hollywood entertainment. It’s a very good and cheap service. I rented ‘St. Vincent’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’. I liked ‘St. Vincent’ and have to re-watch ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’. The TV I was watching it on wasn’t up to snuff. Excuse me for a second…YAWN!!!
I couldn’t believe the amount of snow yesterday. It felt like we got 10 inches. Everybody is sick of it, of course. I can’t believe I made it this far without my snowblower. I did try to start it again yesterday but no dice. I keep telling myself shoveling builds character. But I have no proof to back that up.
My current favorite show is HBO’s Togetherness. It is so good! Great cast, great writing and a lot of great performances. The season finale is this Sunday.
My current favorite band is Future Islands. I missed their breakthrough performance on the Late Show last year. Cue the internet! Thanks to YouTube I’ve watched this at least 15 times!
Last weekend Cara and I were in Florida. It was great to not see snow! The trip back was hard. Our flight was delayed due to snow and our taxi wasn’t at the airport! I know there was a snowstorm but they didn’t even call. Crazy. I was pissed. While I was busy trying to figure out what happened, Cara got us a car. She’s my hero.
My sister-in-law & her family watched Iggy. I missed him so much! The book I was reading, “The Art of Racing in the Rain”, didn’t help matters! It’s about a dog.
I also started listening to some new music by: Guster, The War on Drugs, Palma Violets, Father John Misty and Future Islands. I’m late to the Future Islands party but I really love their songs. Good stuff!
You plan for weeks, buy gifts, spend all day cooking and it’s over in a matter of minutes. You’ll have to forgive me, I have those post Valentine’s Day blues. Now what do I have to look forward to, Presidents’ Day? It’s not the same. I’m kidding, of course.
When did putting your windshield wipers up before a snowstorm become a thing? I’m seeing it more and more. If your wipers freeze to your windshield, scrape them free! It takes a few seconds.
