What I Love This Week – Andie Mitchell

I hope everyone seems to be having an excellent vacation weekend! I do know it’s not the everyday celebration with huge gatherings and seaside days, however we will nonetheless attempt to benefit from the summer time. Our household celebrated The Fourth with simply the three (and a half) of us at house. We went for a household stroll in our purple, white, and blue gear (I borrowed a US soccer shirt from Daniel since I don’t have any maternity garments which might be significantly patriotic). We visited the chickens in our neighborhood and fed them some cherries (with our neighbors permission). Then we performed in a large elephant inflatable sprinkler we acquired as a present. James completely loves water so he had a blast although the elephant misplaced fairly a little bit of air whereas we performed and so he sort of appeared like he was mendacity down on the finish 🙂 . We loved grilled hamburgers and hotdogs and now Daniel and I are planning on watching Hamilton. I can’t wait. It was a extremely nice day even with out touring or getting along with family and friends. I hope everybody had a secure and enjoyable summer time vacation. Let me know the way your loved ones celebrated.

This week Daniel and I watched a few new reveals:

We checked out “Perry Mason” as a result of we love Matthew Rhys from The People. The present appears to be like good with the costumes and interval particulars however neither of us have been actually drawn into the story. It wasn’t dangerous, it simply wasn’t as attention-grabbing as I hoped. I don’t assume we’ll be persevering with with this one.

We additionally watched “I’ll be Gone within the Darkish,” a docuseries on HBO about The Golden State Killer and the late true crime author, Michelle McNamara, who turned obsessed whereas writing her e book about him. Daniel thought it was actually fascinating however since I learn the e book, I didn’t discover it fairly as fascinating. We’ll preserve watching.

I’ve had lots of expertise with telemedicine throughout this pandemic. Most of my prenatal appointments have been performed over the cellphone. The New Yorker published an excellent piece on the benefits and pitfalls.

Currently we have now realized how important important employees are, particularly at locations like grocery shops, drug shops, utilities, and transportation. Many of those employees are underpaid and underappreciated. In reality, many important employees have been incomes lower than folks on unemployment over the previous few months. I hope they will be compensated with some kind of hazard pay.

I really feel lucky that we didn’t have to fret about homeschooling with James as a result of he’s too younger. I do know mother and father, college students, and educators have had a really difficult time with online learning.
