This weekend was a lot of “people” time. We kept Stormageddon Friday night (Baseball Boy’s end-of-school faculty dinner) and Sunday afternoon (Baseball Boy to high school baccalaureate, The Only to a wedding rehearsal). Saturday, I had lunch and afternoon program/meeting with OKRWA. Ate awesome grilled salmon on a Caesar salad and the group had a chat with the wonderful Harlequin author, Sara Orwig. She’s written over 100 books and was talking about priorities and how she came to write that many books. Fun times. Still, I’m pretty much “peopled” out. 😆 In other news…
Sports: My Cardinals pretty much sucked it up against Allison Brennan’s SF Giants. Ah well. The Cards were in first in the NL Central for awhile. It’s a long season. They did fight back yesterday afternoon to keep the Giants from sweeping Also keeping track of OSU Cowgirls and OU Sooners in the NCAA Softball Regionals. OU was beaten in an upset and they had to come back through the losers bracket. Unusual for them. OSU also had to come back but they were beaten by the #1 team in the nation–Florida. The Cowgirls came all the way back and they beat Florida in the first final, forcing the what-if game. They lost sadly. :*( OU came back in their final against Tulsa to tie the game and then won it in extra innings. They play the what-iff game at noon, winner moves on to super-regional game.
Reading: OMG! I finished listening to Emma Chase’s SUSTAINED, Book 2 in her Legal Briefs series. Sebastian York, the narrator, was total awesomesauce. Jake Becker, the hero, is at times wry, self-deprecating, blunt, sexy, sarcastic, amazed, and in totally over his head. I laughed out loud often. I wanted to Gibbs Slap™ on more than one occasion but he was so sheepishly likeable that I couldn’t help rooting for him just a little. The book is written entirely in his POV and what an amazing insight into the brain of guy! I thoroughly enjoyed the book and if you are looking for a sexy romance with a lot of sweet and six hysterical kids, I highly recommend it! I’ve also started a “re-listen” to Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series in anticipation of the release of SILVER SILENCE in June. Two more books I’ve been waiting for arrive on May 30th–Christine Feehan’s SHADOW REAPER and the very LOOOOOooooonng anticipated WHITE HEAT by Ilona Andrews. I’ll do a relisten to the first books in both these series before I start them.
TV: Not watching much besides sports. I have a bunch on the DVR to catch up on. I should think about doing that one of these nights instead of listening to a book. 😉 I am waiting for a few movies to hit cable. I want to see THE ACCOUNTANT, ASSASSIN’S CREED, DR. STRANGE, and ROGUE ONE. All but DR. STRANGE are on View on Demand rental. Uhm…no. I pay far more than Cox is worth to pay them more to “rent” movies. I’m patient. I’ll wait until the movies are available free.
Writing: I’m doing some. As always. Making headway on NIGHT FIRE. Gotta get it edited and such so I can send it to editor/betas/formatting. And I have to address some issues in RDR#8’s proposal and get it back. No rest for the wicked.
That’s all the stuff in my world at the moment. What’s up with y’all?
