Last night as I was watching the last episodes of “Broadchuch” Ivy was standing on my dresser to the left of my bed looking puzzled.
She was staring at the green boho dream catcher I made last week hanging on the adjacent wall.
Previously there had been a small table there at the end where she lifted herself to play with the yarn at the bottom of the dream catcher.
But I had outwitted her, as least for now. I had moved the table, much to her chagrin.
She kept staring at the dream catcher hanging on the wall, then she’d glance down at the spot where the table was in consternation. Back and forth she looked. Where did my landing spot go, I could see she was wondering.
Hard to outwit a cat, I tell you. She probably will beat me on this one yet.
Just when I think I’ve figured out a way to keep her out of my plants, she manages to find a way. I move my plants about like musical chairs, trying to keep her from digging out the top layer of dirt.
This is all she seems to want to do, dig in the dirt and scatter it about the floor. Maybe she’s got that from her mama, who also likes to dig in the dirt. But her mama does it for a reason. Ivy just does it because she’s Ivy.
I finished watching Broadchurch last night. As with many of the Netflix series I watch, I find myself sad and crying at the end. Partially because my time with the characters and the story line is over. Partly because the writing and acting is so superb I am deeply moved.
My favorite character was the actor who played Detective Ellie Miller. She was so funny and showed her emotions flagrantly. Criminals saw her blatant dry wit mixed with biting sarcasm.
And that doesn’t take away from Detective Alec Hardy, played by David Tennant. Alec was one of those characters who you remember by the rolling of his eyes and the emotional waving of his hands and arms when he was upset.
Alec was one of those characters you might start out disliking, but then after a time you come to see what kindness and good lies beneath the surface. He barked orders and seemed gruff, but underneath he was a man who just deeply cared.
I think when you watch Netflix shows, binge watching them without commercial interruption, you become so involved in the plot line and characters. Your feelings are just closer to the surface. At least that’s the way it is for me
You feel for and with them.
If you haven’t seen Broadchurch and you like to watch crime dramas, this is an excellent one to watch. I may just have to watch it again.
I began watching “Unbelievable” yesterday afternoon in the living room. I often have two Netflix shows going in two rooms.
I didn’t realize that it was only released on Friday. It is based on a true story and is about women who are raped and the effects on them. How rape is treated in a different way from say, murder. It is another tier and not seen by some as quite as important.
