Hey y’all! Another week, another snow day here in KC. Yes, every week for the last 5 weeks, The Deuce has had a snow day from school. That’s in addition to recognized holidays and 2 days of parent-teacher conferences that were cancelled-due to the weather! However, The Deuce has been having a ball. He has gone sledding twice in the last week which was never a possibility in Louisiana. Oh, the joys of childhood and no real responsibility. I’ll be catching up on my TV viewing this weekend and (fingers crossed) creating new podcasts.

My recommended Netflix selections to watch: Quincy (fabulous documentary on iconic music mogul Quincy Jones produced by his daughter Rashida Jones (The Office, Parks and Recreation-I had forgotten how many feats he has accomplished), Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened

My recommended Amazon Prime Video selections to watch: Irresistible (starring the fabulous Susan Sarandon, Emily Blunt, and Sam Neill-looks predictable BUT IT’S NOT), Queen: Mercury Rising (my knowledge of the legendary band was limited prior to viewing, but I’m educated now), Missing Mom (riveting documentary, get your box of tissues ready)
