What I Love This Week – Andie Mitchell

This week it was lastly cool sufficient in order that I might get pleasure from time outdoors with out feeling like I’m going to burst into flames. We went blueberry choosing at our favourite close by farm and James had one of the best time operating by the rows of bushes and consuming handfuls of blueberries (after I recommended we put them in our basket to convey house he checked out me like, that’s foolish, why?). Final yr we went blueberry choosing, too, so this appears like a pleasant little custom we’ve obtained going. We additionally obtained an opportunity to see some bunnies and goats, which was particularly candy as a result of James LOVES animals (and bugs). He boils over with pleasure each time he sees an animal, a fowl, a toad, an ant…”HI!!!” he squeals earlier than attempting to kiss it. It’s probably the most heartwarming factor.

This week we tried to look at Alone, a contest present on Netflix the place the contestants attempt to survive in harsh situations (season 6 takes place in The Arctic), and the final particular person to stop wins $500,000. It’s a extremely fascinating present and I like watching them attempt to make hearth, shelter, and attempt to make use of the small quantity of things they’re allowed to convey. However I noticed I can’t watch the present as a result of a lot is, after all, centered on searching. I simply can’t maintain interested by how these animals are being hunted for a recreation present and doubtless would by no means have are available contact with people in any other case. I say this figuring out I’m actually a hypocrite as a result of I eat meat (*but once more* I ask myself how I can maintain consuming meat after I sincerely hate the considered taking an animal’s life), however deriving any leisure out of it’s simply inconceivable for me.
