Ten Things I Liked This Week March 2017
I started doing Ten Things I Liked This Week in June of 2015 and it’s definitely become my favorite monthly post. I love adding to my list throughout the week.
Here are ten things I liked this week:
1. Fiona the baby hippo
She was born six weeks premature and I have been following the Cincinnati Zoo’s twitter feed for updates. I am totally #TeamFiona
Fiona gets a ramp
Fiona gets weighed and a bigger bottle
2.The Hollow Crown
This has been around but we just discovered it. The BBC has done fabulous adaptations of Shakespeare’s history plays. We got the DVDs of the first season from the library but might end up the full set.
Season 1 is Richard II, Henry IV – Part 1, Henry IV – Part 2, and Henry V (Tom Hiddleston and Prince Hal/Henry V in the last three)
Season 2 is Henry VI – Part 1, Henry VI, Part 2, and Richard III (Benedict Cumberbatch as Richard III)
We’ve only watched the first two plays of Season 1. The productions are gorgeous and the cast is spectacular.
3. This pigeon
He marches to the beat of his own carousel.
6. “And then the murders began.”
Not for the first time, an argument had broken out over breakfast at number four, Privet Drive. And then the murders began.
Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again. And then the murders began.
“Where’s Papa going with that ax?” said Fern to her mother as they were setting the table for breakfast. And then the murders began.
One day when Pooh Bear had nothing else to do, he thought he would do something, so he went round to Piglet’s house to see what Piglet was doing. And then the murders began.
7. This monastery adopted a shnauzer
And it’s adorable
9. Steve ‘n’ Seagulls
I got totally lost in the rabbit hole of their videos. I now understand all the words of a few songs for the first time.
Steve ‘n’ Seagulls is a Finnish country band, playing bluegrass versions of well-known hard rock and metal songs.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
