What day is it? Time is lost on me. While March lingered forever, I didn’t even notice April waltz by and May came and went in a chaotic frenzy. Somehow along the way I found a little time to relax and watch a few new movies:

My 6 year old and I also like to tune in on Saturday nights for classic horror movies with Svengoolie. In April we saw Dracula’s Daughter and Attack of the 50 Foot Woman. Well, I did. He always falls asleep about half way through. We also enjoyed The Deadly Mantis in May.
My husband and I have been catching up on a lot of TV lately. We basically binged Tiger King over a week. Never Have I Ever was great and I hope there is more. If you’re a fan of The Favourite, The Great is pretty great. And we are loving the new episodes of What We Do In The Shadows.
And April ended with the greatest thing to happen all pandemic: a new Parks and Rec special! I’m a huge Parks and Rec fan and loved every minute. Not only was it a great reunion (socially distanced of course), but a wonderful, wholesome reminder to take care of yourself and others in this tough time. Hearing Bye-Bye Lil’ Sebastian again made me feel a lot better.
Stay safe and healthy!
