Falling for Monday

So. It’s Monday. Again. Most months have four Mondays in them. Better than five, right? Yes, I’m babbling. I need more coffee. So. There was a last week. And a weekend. And since it’s Monday, I normally recap. So. In no particular order…

My St. Louis Cardinals are back on the rollercoaster of win/lose. Looked like the Tigers might sweep them but then Rally Squirrel appeared in the 7th and they scored 5 bloopy runs. Rumor has it that “Ernie the Equipment Guy” caught and secreted RS on the team plane and the critter isn now enjoying the high life with a steady diet of airline peanuts, corn nuts, pecans, and hickory baseball bats. They’re still in the Wild Card hunt so there is that.

I gotta get on that proposal this week. And I think I figured out part of the plot for Wiz and Jen’s story (the next Nightrider book). I keep wanting to title the next Penumbra Papers book LEATHER AND LACE, using lines from the song as chapter titles. Don’t ask.

I finished off a quick reread of DARK IN DEATH to refresh my memory as I launched into LEVERAGE IN DEATH. I ❤ the In Death books like damn and whoah! Some are outstanding. Some are excellent. Some are great. Some are good. I've never read a bad one. I gave LEVERAGE 5 stars because it's an excellent book. I missed the button though. The button is a big deal to me and there were a couple of places it could have been mentioned to great effect. Ah well. I'm listening to some Audible Romance books by Vivian Arend, in her Takhini Pack series. They're good time fillers. There are acoupe of books coming later this fall that will necessitate re-listening to the entire series to which they are attached because…favorite series! Any excuse! That's my story, anyway.

Being mostly lazy, I've caught up the ol' DVR on everything but "Yellowstone" and the last three episodes of "Lucifer." I'm saving Lucy for next year when Netflix streams Season 4. I want to start off with the episodes leading to the finale so I know where the series starts. My brain is like a sponge. It's absorbs all this stuff but as soon as I wring it out, *POOF*. That’s why I can reread book series as often as I do. 🙂

And that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing. There was a pancake breakfast Saturday, so family time. The Jolly Green Giant was supposed to start soccer Saturday morning but the fields were under water from all the rain. I think he has two games this Saturday so we’ll go watch.

What’s up in your world?

    Mondays here in Canada also beg for more coffee. 😉

  2. Gah. I read this yesterday morning and meant to come back because, at the time, I was a toad. Apparently, I was a toad all day yesterday because I never came back. Bleh. I’m still a toad today, but here’s trying.

    Fingers crossed for your Cards. The Yankees are also hunting for the Wild Card. I’m afraid even if they get it, they won’t go much past it. Good luck with your proposal. You can do it! I think Leather and Lace is a good title for your next Penumbra story. Yay for reading and family and fun. Good luck to JGG in his soccer games!

    Not much is up over here. Still chugging along on UatB. I got a packet of work from the pay-job that I need to start today and hopefully finish by Thursday morning (when my pay sheet is due). Kira’s back to normal. Life’s pretty boring. As usual.

      There’s nothing wrong with normal. I rather enjoy it on occasion. 😉 Glad Kira-kitty is better. Yeah, the “Cardiac” Cards are as bad as the “Cardiac” Cowboys. At least the AP has recognized that the college team leading the NCAA in offensive yards rushing deserves a spot in the top 25. Jerks. 😛 Go get work done. Me, too.

Got something to say?
