As many of you may have noticed a lot of my images on my blog last week, including my blog button, was replaced by the ugliest Photobucket image ever (see above) and then later last week disappeared all together. I was hit, sadly by the Photobucket devil (as I so unlovingly like to call it now).
Yep, Photobucket decided to be really big jerks and start charging people (*cough*$400peryear*cough*) to use their "free" hosting site. So with that, I had to redo all my buttons. *sigh*
Thankfully my amazing husband got it back up and running. Sadly though this means that those of you that were using my button now have to replace it with the new one in the left hand sidebar. So sorry guys! But hey, it made me realize how outdated my own blog roll is as well and I've slowly been updating it so there has been some good mixed in there with the Photobucket devil nightmare right? Right? Blah.
On a positive note, I wanted to share with you what I've been binge watching this summer (see my beginning of summer post HERE).
Don't laugh but I've been making my girls watch Little House on the Prairie.
You guys, I forgot how awesome this show is and that it can still make me cry. I adore it, cheesiness and all. We are up to season three and there is no way we will finish it but it's been so fun having my girls (and occasionally my husband) watch it with me. They don't make them like that anymore. I like the wholesome feel to it and the life lessons each episode has. It's been fun reliving a little bit of my childhood with re-watching them again.
Another show I watched was Crimson Road. It originally aired on PBS and takes place during WWI and I loved it! There was only one season on Amazon so I had to look it up. I was heartbroken to learn that it was cancelled after the first season (only 6 episodes darn it!). But while searching for that I ran across another PBS hit Mercy Street and even though I haven't watched it all yet, I'm really liking it. It takes place during the Civil War period and it is so interesting!
I've also caught some episode of A Handmaid's Tale and holy crap this show is freighting in a really messed up sort of way. I don't know if I should be horrified or fascinated by it. I don't even know what to think about it. It is strangely addicting and yet so wrong at the same time. Have you watched it? What do you think about it?
So not a whole lot of TV watching around here for me but at least I've really liked what I have watched. It's been fun watching something different from my norm and in a small way I feel like I'm learning something along the way too with the history rich details some of these shows have.
So tell me what you've been watching this summer. Anything new and interesting? Any recommendations?
