    • I’m enjoying it, but I think I happen to be in the mood for that kind of weird at the moment. I’m not sure it would always work.

  1. I am glad that there will be a season 3 of Good Omens.

    I have been following Emma Cruises on Facebook for a while now! I find it very interesting, and it does make me which I could just get on a cruise and go!

  2. I read The Dutch House and very much enjoyed it. It was my first book by Patchett. Maybe a print or Kindle version would appeal more? I have tried audio books and they don’t work for me but, that’s obviously a persoanll preference as I know they are very popular.

    My son told me they’d raise the price of Amazon so you don’t have to deal with commercials. Honestly, Bezos has enough money …whish he’d feed the hungry kids instead.

  3. I’m not really sure either whether I liked The Dutch House so much because of the story itself or because of Tom Hanks.

    I have ended up adding so many streaming services to my tv. I rarely watch it. I should cut some, but a new series is always popping up, and it never seems to be on a service I already have.

    You did a lot of blog posts last week!

  4. Thanks for letting me know about Pauli Murray — sounds like a courageous female pioneer. I even lived in the DC area for 15 years and didn’t know about her, so that’s bad. I will read more about her.

  5. The week before last, we had beautiful, warm sunny days. Then we started getting colder days with lots of rain last week. Yesterday, we got blizzard weather. It was crazy. I want the warm days back, lol.

    I want watch Good Omens season 2, but my husband refuses to pay extra for no ads on Amazon since we already pay for Prime. And, unfortunately, I’ve grown too accustomed to not dealing with ads. I may have to pay the extra myself, lol.

  6. I think it’s supposed to rain here tomorrow and Thursday. I love the rain, especially when on days I am able to work from home. I think I could enjoy an audiobook narrated by Tom Hanks! I haven’t read too much by Ann Patchett, but what I have read, I’ve enjoyed.

    I haven’t minded the commercials on Prime so much. I think it’s because I’m used to them on Hulu, since we only get the basic Hulu service. I kind of miss the old commercials we used to have with regular television though. Not the amount (fewer is better), just the variety. LOL I actually am really good at tuning out commercials though–my husband thinks it’s a super power. But, yes, TV/movies are much better without commercials. Anyway, besides ignoring commercials, I have been watching Doctor Who and Shogun. I do want to watch Good Omens someday.

    I hope you have a great week, Joy! Take care!

  7. We ended up paying extra for Amazon to keep away the commercials since we watch that the most, but I am not doing it for every other channel because it is ridiculous. We were trying to save money with streaming and now it as much as cable!

    I’ve never Ann Patchett. I should probably remedy that at some point.
