We are officially over the hump of March. The snow has been melting around here thank goodness, but all that melting snow makes for messy dog walking outings. And I just loooove cleaning doggie paws. However, the birds are singing and spring is on the way, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
Ok, I said I would see it and I did: CAPTAIN MARVEL! Did I enjoy it? Ooooh yes. All the
assholes commentators who bashed this movie based on the trailer can eat their words. It was full of action, and Carol Danvers/Vers (played by Brie Larson) gave us good reason to love her as a Marvel super hero, and as an inspiration to young girls. Now I have to figure out how to get a Captain Marvel costume.
The Pirates of Penzance. Aw, When the Foeman Bares his Steel has been tinkering around my head since last week, but the fact that Linda Ronstadt is singing in this clip makes it better. (Plus, Tony Azito as the police chief is a one-man wonder.)
Save Family Photos. Every photograph has a story behind it, and this Instagram page helps preserve those stories through people submitting their old family photos. I tend to go down a rabbit hole when I browse through the pictures, because they’re so interesting. (This photo I particularly like, but all of them are amazing really.)
Still Me, Jojo Moyes. Ah, the adventures of Louisa Clarke continue! This time we see her living the big life in New York after she had accepted a job as a live-in assistant in the previous book. Louisa has come a long way since the first book; the series (which I think this might be the concluding book?) has really demonstrated her growth throughout since meeting Will Traynor as his caregiver in the first novel. As I was reading Still Me, I wasn’t sure whether I really liked or not. It’s a great read, no doubt and there were some elements about it that I really liked (and holy jshfjsdhfjsh there were some plot twists I didn’t see coming!), but something about it affected my over all liking of it. I’m not sure if it was some of the scenarios that Lou was placed in or if it was some of the characters… Whatever it is I can’t quite lay my finger on it. Ok, now what shall I read next?
Not so strangers. This writing piece gives me a sense of comfort and familiarity in a cruel and unforgiving world.

All of the sudden I find myself listening to Joni Mitchell. This is my life now.
