1. Reading on the porch in mid-October
The weather Sunday afternoon was simply delightful. Rain arrived later in the week.

Ten Things I Liked This Week July 2017

Ten Things I Liked This Week July 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. A beautiful morning
A lovely morning inspires me to get off the train a few stops early and walk to work.
Pretty morning

 

2. The Musketeers
for the second time We’re partway through rewatching the first and second seasons before we watch the third and final season for the first time. Such a fun show.

3. Fiona spending time with her parents.
(You knew there would be a Fiona update didn’t you?). I have an irrational desire to fly to Cincinnati and hang out at the zoo until I see her in person.

 

4. The Hubster’s birthday present
He adores the Minions for some reason so he needed Turbo Dave. It’s hilarious.

 

5. These clowns
Abby loves Howie. Howie is getting old and was just diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism as well as some other issues. He’s now on daily meds and once the thyroid issue is settled down we’ll see how much of the other things were side effects of that.
Howie and Abby

 

6. Broadchurch
This is just an excellent show. The third and final season is airing now. David Tennant and Olivia Coleman are so good as detectives.

7. Marvin
I was fully prepared to ignore Amazon Prime day until the Roomba. I’m impressed so far.

8. Field trips for ice cream
On Friday my boss scheduled a ‘meeting’ at Ben and Jerry’s. Supporting our downtown Ben and Jerry’s supports a good cause.

10. Wonder Woman
We finally saw it yesterday. I loved it.
