Happy Monday! If you're staying in more than usual right now (I hope that you are!!), you might be in need of some entertainment for yourself and your family.  I totally get it!  In addition to the "everyday" things that must get done, in a season of uncertainty, simple pleasures feel even more special.  Today, I'm sharing a few recommendations of TV shows and books that will help you pass the time and enjoy your mandated stay-cation!

Shows to Watch

  • Schitt's Creek (my favorite "funny, feel good" show - I've seen every episode twice)
  • Grey's Anatomy (so many seasons - you won't run out!)
  • This is Us (prepare for a good cry... every single episode)
  • A Million Little Things (a current favorite for Q and me)
  • Scandal (a little politics and a little mystery)
  • Revenge (one of my dad's favorites of all time!) 
  • Fraiser (if you're looking for a hilarious, dry-humored sitcom to lighten the mood)
  • Gilmore Girls (good for the whole family and just makes you feel good!)
  • Good Doctor (such a sweet story and interesting medical cases, too)
  • Manifest (a little creepy - I can't watch before bed, but it sucks you in!)
  • Handmaid's Tale (I haven't watched this, but my parents have)

Books to Read

I think this season is the perfect chance to knock out a ton of reading!  I just ordered three new books and am listening to one on Audible, too.  Here's a rundown of some of my must-reads from 2019 (and of all time), as well as what I'm reading now.

It feels like this time is the perfect opportunity to rest and recharge - even if it wasn't planned, isn't the most convenient month, or comes with challenges (like working from home with kids home, too).  I hope you'll take this unexpected opportunity to fill your cup and enjoy some simple pleasures that you might not normally have time for.  Whether it's a book, a movie, or a funny show, find joy in the simple things today, sweet friends.  Sending hugs (or elbow bumps - lol!) to you today!
