  • Are you serious?
    I can’t wait for them to release more Chateau seasons.
    We also have MANY shows like this. But I was drawn to the Chateau because of the amazing castle like home….and the beautiful couple doing it all.

  • You got to work from home? Thank goodness for that. Being able to keep working through this pandemic. I would be horrible at it. I see those commercials where people are in pajama bottoms and nice tops doing conference calls. I know myself…..I would probably start watching soap operas all day and actually getting some work done at midnight…[Read more]

  • Do you believe that some people always attract the same kind of potential mates?
    I believe that. I do think we have to look within to find out why we keep attracting the same type of people.
    I also think….some people easily give their hearts away too soon. People get so caught up in the fun and fanciful feelings of infatuation. Infatuation…[Read more]

  • YES…..I have to monitor how many shows I get into because they are addicting. AND…there are so many shows like this out there.
    I think from what I saw…they have lived there a few years and still have not got to half the rooms. Renovating them that is.

  • If any one knows me they know I absolutely love DIY projects 🛠 and watching shows like this. I think because of the Covid slow down of new shows over here some of our channels are showing older UK shows. WHICH ar […]

    • I love, love, love shows like this.
      So interesting! I would buy up a Chateau like this in a heartbeat if I could. Reminds me of some of the pictures my dad’s godmother in Switzerland used to send.

      I also love watching Fixer Upper, Joanna and Chip. Tiny Houses. They truly amaze me!

        • They really are very addicting.
          It’s been quite easy for me to get hooked on them last year. The company I work for has had all 150 of us working remotely, so I turn the TV on for noise, and of course, end up watching while doing tasks.

          I can’t even imagine renovating that many rooms. That is a LOT!!!

            YES….45 rooms in this Chateau. I definitely would have to marry a Journeyman to do all this work. You should start watching the show…..this man could do everything. He is ex military and a chef. He also is a trained gardener I think…he just knows it all. And she is so cute. She is so talented with design and unique ideas. And to do all of this with small children….AMAZING.

    • This is quite a lengthy documentary series which first began airing in June 2016.
      It has 7 seasons, and 32 episodes in all.
      So there’s much to see if you want to watch the entire series.

      There are several DIY shows which come and go in the UK and one of the stand-out programs is called “Grand Designs” – a program which follows the construction of a house from foundations to the roof. It may sound ordinary but it really isn’t.

    I will say…I don’t comment on the post I read from you because I feel so heavy hearted and as if my limbs feel like bricks after I do. But I realized….. that is your ability to bring the reader to this place. Which is actually a talent/gift not many have. So I ask myself….do I comment on the gifted writer….or do I comment on the pain?

  • If I were you…and your calendar is clear….ROAD TRIP it.

    My sons Tribe is already offering them the immunization. I am not from their Tribe so I am not on the “early” “Privlidged” list …ha. They of course are not going to get it but said they would call and see if I could take their spot. But I know how these Native American politics…[Read more]

  • Welcome to THOUGHTS Gwyneira ☕️

    I absolutely LOVE this post. I have been in a place in my life years ago where I had to stop….and adapt this thinking. It is so important for people out there who feel they are carrying the world on their shoulders to stop and really take this in.

  • I think you hit all areas that we discussed over this. Well….the thoughts the people in the group brought up to her and she shared with me. And I just realized DoDo bird me didn’t post my view. I thought for sure Gluttony ….that was the only thing I saw. But she brought up all the ideas she was discussing with other people….which was along…[Read more]

  • Sorry to read this Bailey. We wear our mask here in my household and do our best to keep others safe.

  • My sister “Queen of Horror” sent this to me earlier today and I didn’t watch it at the time because I wasn’t in the mood to watch a horror scene. But she assured me it was different. So….I just watched it. […]

    • There’s much one can read into this film – allegory or metaphor, but I wouldn’t consider it a horror film. 11 people all sat around a table feasting on what will become their last supper. The biblical last supper was attended by Jesus and his 12 disciples. Biblical connotations?

      The diners’ appear to be eating several endangered species with gusto, and have no moral compunction over the terrible consequences such attitudes will ultimately cause. So Mankind sinks under the weight of his own sins – this being gluttony, and again, another biblical reference is exposed. In a visual metaphor we see the diners’ and their table drop to the lower floor. . .are there no limits that mankind will sink to for momentary satisfaction?

      Maybe they are in purgatory forced to repeat their past sins before ascending to heaven?

      The script writer definitely had something in mind when this was written, and even to the casual viewer it is clear that there is so much more going on here then what is seen on the surface. It’s the insatiable appetite – primarily – the need to use up all the Earth’s resources rather than protect them. Mankind is descending rather than ascending as He should be.

      There is more, but I could go on forever.

    • I think you hit all areas that we discussed over this. Well….the thoughts the people in the group brought up to her and she shared with me. And I just realized DoDo bird me didn’t post my view. I thought for sure Gluttony ….that was the only thing I saw. But she brought up all the ideas she was discussing with other people….which was along the lines of what you wrote. Your very observant Jules.
      I also felt….this short film was not “Horror” unless of course you are a devout religious being 🙃 It is labeled Horror which is why I didnt watch it right away. So again….agree with Jules on this.
      But I also felt it was a nicely made short film.

      I started watching a show which distracted me from posting my view here last night. I can’t stand getting caught up in a series. 😁

    Im with you on that. I have one son who reads everything and he told me when this started that this was going to be like the flu….it will not go away. And sure enough……that is what is being reported.

  • Uh huh…..my sister has been moved to a smaller base and smaller living quarters in Afghanistan since bases have been closing over there.
    Just seeing these soldiers sleeping there to keep everyone safe gave me such a feeling of good and warmth.

  • Yes! We could have had this on the “day of insanity” but some people in the White House didn’t think it would “look” good.

  • My Mom & Dad received their first Covid Immunization shot last week 🥳
    I appreciate my sister so much for making sure my parents make it to their appointments and scheduling their Covid immunization. My mother is a retired nurse so she did her research on this vaccination before deciding that she wanted this one. I on the other hand really like…[Read more]

    Very touching Jules. Covid #’s are horrible over here too 😞

  • I wish I could hand them all a fluffy pillow & a cup of hot tea 🍵

    • All this for one moment of national insanity.

      • Yes! We could have had this on the “day of insanity” but some people in the White House didn’t think it would “look” good.

    • And a warm blanket. Bless each and every one of them. I heard yesterday that at least 20,000 National Guard members are expected to be in Washington D.C. for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, which is roughly four times more than the amount of troops currently in Afghanistan and Iraq combined.

    • Are these the National Guard gathered in the Capitol to keep our Congresspersons safe? If so, give ’em a blanket and pillow for me. 🙂
