For most of this past week, my wife was away visiting her mother in Delaware, and I was on my own. Theoretically, that meant I should have had extra time to read, watch, and listen to what I wanted. In reality, it meant I read nothing while she was away, started watching one show and then deciding that I needed to stop watching until we could watch together, and listened to very little.
The show, the title of which is badly translated according to my wife, is Money Heist, a Spanish series originally titled La Casa de Papel, which literally means “paper house.” I am only a few episodes into the Netflix show, and all I can tell you is that it is a must-watch:
After she got back, I started my reread of The Return of the King, we watched Three Billboards in Ebbing, Missouri, and she “forced” me to listen to this:
The video was made in 2013, but became popular on YouTube only last year, garnering 3 million views. The son Brian Owens also has made a tribute album to Johnny Cash titled Soul of Cash:
We also continued watching the fourth season of Mozart in the Jungle on Amazon Prime:
Since the show is only 10 episodes and about 25 minutes each episode, we have decided to watch only a couple at a time, especially since it’s such a beautiful show. This is one show we didn’t want to binge-watch but savor as fine wine, sipping in each sweet moment.
Which books, movies, TV shows, or music have you been grooving this past week?

This is probably my busiest week. I have triple booked myself every day this week. Every day. Some could not be helped. Choir concerts changing weeks. Doc appts that I was forced to reschedule. I have this mandatory training for volunteering that I really want to cancel on but I do love to volunteer and after a tense moment last night at homeless outreach, I am think more training can’t be a bad idea.
The only show I sit myself down for is The Walking Dead but that’s mostly because it comes on so late on Sunday and after volunteering with teenagers it’s a nice, mindless break.
I am reading a book for a tour called Rainbirds. I am always a little skeptical when it comes to book tours but this gal writes like Haruki Murakami which is a delight for me since his new book isn’t hitting the IS until after November. I’ve been waiting nearly two years.
Just from working at the library, “dealing with the homeless” isn’t easy.
I will have to let Jim know a new season of Mozart in the Jungle is available for his viewing pleasure. When he lost his job, he stopped watching all TV. Now that he is working again, I hope I can bust him out of his ennui and get him to at least watching those shows he really enjoyed.

I can’t believe how I waste my time when I actually have it. Why is that?
Sometimes, though, we need it.
