Monday and the Boys of Summer

Monday coffeeI feel like I’m mainlining caffeine these days. Weekends won’t exist for awhile so Monday is no longer a day where I have to “get back to work.” I haven’t left work in order to get back to it. πŸ˜† So…what’s going on in my world you ask. I’m happy to tell you! πŸ˜‰

Writing update: I only have approximately 65K words to write between now and the end of November. Fun times! I’m 12K+ words into my next Kindle World book, set in Susan Stoker’s Special Forces: Operation Alpha world, so almost halfway with it. I hope to have it finished by mid-week. Then I need to jump into RDR#6-Kade’s story. Followed by a 3-chapter proposal for RDR#7-Deacon’s story. Very fun times! :/ I keep tellin’ myself that. Maybe I’ll believe it one of these days soon. πŸ˜†

Sports: Well, OSU and OU are going to give me a heart attack if they keep playin’ like they did Saturday! Blerg! They both won but it was messy. Y’all also know that I’m a huge baseball fan, hence today’s subject line. My Cardinals didn’t make the playoffs but the Cubs did. There’ve been some weather delays but the games are progressing. Cubbies are headed to San Francisco leading the best of five series 2-0. They could put it away tomorrow night. Then its a matter of waiting to see if the Nationals or Dodgers prevail. On the AL side of things, Blue Jays are leading the Rangers 2-0 and the Indians over the Red Sox 2-0. I’m kinda holding out for a Cubs-Indians pairing in the World Series.

TV: I’m behind again. I’ve been writing and/or watching baseball. Except for Lucifer. I think it’s my new favorite show. I keep hoping to catch up on NCIS and the other shows I’ve DVR’d but time keeps slipping away.

Reading: I did a slew of books on tape–Joanna Wylde’s Reapers MC series. I’m all caught up now. There were two I hadn’t read yet. I’m also reading/listening (yay for Kindles Whispersync) a romance about the Irish mob in Boston. The female narrator does a good Southie accent. It’s dark and gritty, and while I’m mostly enjoying it, I’m not “compelled” to put other stuff aside to finish it. I’m ahead on my Goodreads challenge so it’s all good.

So, that’s it for me. I know I’m totally anti-social on social media these days. Between politics and deadlines I’m not feeling all the happy feelz. *shrug* So, what’s up in your lives? Fill me in so I’m not in this big void of a bubble! What are you doing, watching, reading, writing? How are your sports teams doing? What fun things are you doing? I want to know because I’m sort of living vicariously through you guys! πŸ˜‰

  1. On the bright side, you’re never bored. (Although maybe you wish you were sometimes.) Michigan is still winning. I’m really watching Western Michigan this year. They’re doing amazing things for a little school in Kalamazoo. 6-0 for the first time since the 1940s. Baseball: Go Indians. (But only because they’re beating Boston.)

    I’ve been reading a lot. And fishing. Living vicariously through me is probably not the most exciting thing. Well, the books are exciting reads – old crime novels mostly – and catching fish can be exciting. Oh, and I saw two bald eagles yesterday! First eagles of the fall, so I was pretty jazzed. They were screaming at each other and doing aerial acrobatics over the river. Cool stuff.

    Hang in there. :hugs:

      I’ve been listening a lot. No time for reading and I can do the audio thing while I do the Necessary for Life things–like cooking, feeding critters, going to the grocery store… And EAGLES! Tres cool!!! Go Western Michigan! πŸ˜€

    Well, my Titans won yesterday, but my Vols couldn’t pull out another miracle against A&M on Saturday. Still both games had me on pins and needles the entire time. Seriously killing my blood pressure watching football this season. The TN-AL game might just put me away on Saturday.

    I’ve been mostly reading review books in the last few weeks. 2 are out tomorrow and I can highly recommend them both. Going Down Fast by Carly Phillips and Going Hard by Kelsey Browning.

Got something to say?
