Well, I’m ready for rain 🌧 if it ever shows up! I snapped up these water-resistant boots when they were marked down a few weeks ago, and they’re again 30% off (but today’s the last day). I went for the leopard print, naturellement, but there are other colors and finishes available too.
They’re comfortable right out of the box, and run true to size.
More sale boots…
We’ve been watching…
I’d heard good reviews of “The Life Ahead” on Netflix, and we watched it over the weekend. Sophia Loren (at 86) plays Rosa, a Holocaust survivor and former prostitute, who now cares for the children of other prostitutes. Momo (played wonderfully by Ibrahima Gueye) winds up living in her household. Though their relationship is initially antagonistic, a bond develops over time. It’s not a happy film, but a hopeful one, and I thought it was really well done.
We also watched “Fisherman’s Friends.” While I really loved the music (we used to sing some of those shanties at our Morris Dance gatherings) I found it a bit too “Hallmark sweet” for my taste. Still, if you’re looking for some light entertainment, there’s some pretty scenery and lovely harmonies to enjoy.
And a new season of “The Crown” just landed on Netflix! We’ll be starting it tonight.
I stumbled across this link over the weekend and have bookmarked: 14 Classic Movies on Netflix… Many are landmarks of French cinema. I’ve seen several of these but there were some new-to-me selections, and some I’d like to go back and watch again.
What have you been watching and enjoying lately?
