Father’s Day and #AmWatching

A belated Happy Father’s Day to all you fathers out there! We’re not much for restaurant crowds and prefer to have a quiet day at home and grill out. Hubby did some yard work and then he and Son #2 smoked cigars on the patio later in the evening. Although I was afraid we’d be watching some Hallmark movie (he’s a big fan and threatened to choose You’re Bacon Me Crazy), Hubby chose John Wick #2. I think it was actually more of Son #2’s choice, but I was fully on board with it. We also finally opened the good bottle of wine Hubby bought for our anniversary a year and a half ago. We’d been waiting for my taste and smell to come back so I could actually appreciate it, and over the past month both senses made big leaps and are mostly back to normal – finally!

Has anyone watched First Kill on Netflix? It’s based on a short story written by one of my favorite authors, Victoria Schwab, and I’ve always been a vamp fan. I’ve only got one episode left, and things are seriously heating up – loads of tension and conflict. Somehow I never got to the theater to see Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but I was excited to see that it will be streaming on Disney+ June 22 – so you know what I’ll be watching soon.

Have a great week!

    1. I’m a Schwab fan, but didn’t read the anthology with the short story First Kill is based on. I had high expectations since it had her name on it, and I definitely wasn’t disappointed. Hope you get a chance to watch the other episodes!


  1. It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend, Teri. Happy Belated Father’s Day to your husband. And thanks for the recommendation of First Kill. We’re always looking for something good and series are awesome as they last a little while! Have a great week.

      1. I wrote down First Kill so we can start it tonight. Stranger Things – I don’t know why, but I’m having trouble getting into it. I loved that show and couldn’t wait for it to start up again. Maybe I expected monsters instead of Russians. Sticking with it though. We just started the final season of Animal Kingdom last night. Were you following that one? All I can say is it’s going to be intense! 🙂

    1. That sounds like a perfect day, Denise! With a break in the heat, it would have been a good day to hike here also. I’ll have to figure out when to watch Doctor Strange – hubby isn’t really a fan, unfortunately. Hope you get a chance to watch First Kill!


    1. It’s actually in an anthology, Misty. I never got around to reading it, but I knew I’d like it if Schwab wrote it. And yes – it’s wonderful to be able to taste and smell again after eighteen months!

      1. I’m going to have to see if I can find it because now that I know it is an adaptation my brain tells me I can’t watch it until I read it lol. When I got COVID my taste and smell never completely went away thankfully so when I got over it my smell and taste were back to normal immediately. I can’t imagine how it would be to go so long without being able to taste or smell anything.

    1. I’d planned on watching it at the theater, but had a conflict nearly every weekend. Then it got to the point when I figured it was just a matter of time before it hit Disney+ so I waited. My patience paid off!

    1. I saw what you cooked – the lamb, I think? Hubby and sons are fans of lamb, but I’m not. I tried it years ago, but never developed a taste for it. Sounds like you guys also had a fabulous Father’s Day, Robbie.

        I spent most of the weekend resting to recover from my bright idea of single-handedly moving things around in my craft room so my desk could be in there in 75F heat without air conditioning on Friday. But other than that it was a good one.
