July Monthly News

Welcome to the July edition of the monthly news!
COVID. Fear will be with some of us for a while, I think. At least, I hope enough to keep it in people's minds before we start heading back to what life was like before COVID. I've gone for a few drives with the hubby, and am always shocked at how many people don't keep with the social distancing rules, or wear a mask. Seen many in big groups. It baffles me how easily we forget. Until it's one of our own that gets sick...
On a better note, hubby and I celebrated our anniversary very low key.

We didn't want to venture into patio land with every one else, so we got The Keg for takeaway. We wanted to go back to where we got married, The Ancaster Old Mill. Sadly, they don't reopen the patio till July 10th, after our special day. I might have taken a chance at COVID for their patio... can't lie, I love them that much. ๐Ÿคท Even with the Stage 3 reopening, and allowances to dine-in, I'd still rather eat on the patio. Although we didn't chance it afterall. Not this month any way.

  1. Happy anniversary. What a lovely cake! Sometimes you need a break from reading, so I understand completely. Hope you have a good August.

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

AVAILABLE NOW!
RATED PG
425 minutes
AMAZON
In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all. Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham return to their unforgettable roles as Hobbs and Shaw in this action-packed feature from the blockbuster Fast & Furious franchise!

REVIEW: Boyfriend overload!!
The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
