You know how sometimes it takes a few episodes to really get into a show? Give it two or three episodes to make a decision on if it’s going somewhere and worth continuing. Of course, after you’ve spent that much time trying to make a decision, you’ve wasted a lot of time if it’s a dud of a show. We started watching The Bodyguard on Netflix. It seriously sucked us in immediately. No wondering if it was good or not. It was good immediately. And of course the intensity and music to go with it just gets your heart racing. If you like suspenseful shows, this one is absolutely worth checking out. It has you thinking and wondering who is doing what and even what secrets people are keeping. I can’t wait to see what happens next. The only downfall is it’s apparently a super short season, but hopefully, like other great Netflix shows, it comes back for a second season… sooner than later.

Surprise! Winter is finally making a slight appearance this week. Don’t get me wrong, it’s been cold… very cold at times even. But, we’ve been lacking our usual snow. Most years we’re buried in several feet or more. We’ve seen the grass more this winter than I ever remember from years past. And just when I thought we were heading to an early spring… is it still possible that come March, all of this nonsense will be over and we’ll be moving on to warmer temps… and no snow? One can only hope I suppose. It’s been a weird winter across the country and I’m sure we’re all in agreement, we’re ready for spring.
