Madness is defined as doing the same thing over and over while expecting different outcomes. Or at least that’s my definition. I need to try something different. I’m gonna get right on that. Eventually.
So, there was a week and a weekend. Some stuff happened. Other stuff didn’t. End of story. Going back to bed now. Or not.
Let’s see. What did happen? Very little writing. Some health issues. A book trailer (see below). Reading. Baseball. A joint celebration of a 93 year-old Navy vet (who served on the Enterprise) and an 80 year-old army sergeant. Good cake and ice cream. Awesome veterans. Lots of social media drama. I stayed out of it. Reading/listening. Stress. Laughter. Hugs from a BIG 5 year old. (His b-day check up said he’s the size of a 7 year old. Yikes!)
Still trying to befriend (domesticate) the two feral kittens. I’ll make them house cats if I can catch one or both. Met the new neighbors while I was out feeding/calling the cats to eat. They’re…interesting. I think it’s grandfather/grandmother (but not sure about grandmother), son, daughter-in-law and grandsons. Granddad has a long beard. Son has tattoos, including on his head. They’re friendly. They wave. I wave back. They have a big trailer that makes me very curious about what they carry in it and what they do. (Not in a bad way, in an I’m-a-nosy-neighbor-who-writes way.) I suppose I could just ask…huh?
We’re coming up on opening day. I’m getting to see the starting lineup for the Cardinals in the spring training games now. Fun times. Speaking of watching baseball on TV, I wish we had a Menard’s. Just sayin’…
The NCAA basketball tournament is going on. *yawn* Round ball is sooo not my game. Nothing against it, just…not interested. OU is in it and pulled off a first-round upset. There were several of those, evidently. People’s brackets are blowing up. Which makes me sound like I care. Nope. But I have friends who do and I’m hearing about it.
I’ve been bouncing around on my reading/listening. I rated a book low because the author (who’s “facts” are problematic on a good day) got it all wrong. It made me sad because I LIKED the characters and the story line. I just spent so much time ranting (rather than, you know, actually listening to the book) about how she totally screwed the pooch on major plot points dealing with law enforcement stuff. I’m also revisiting a series that I tried several times to read the first book and just couldn’t get beyond the first several chapters because…reasons. Listening to them has eased some of the hot-button issues. There are also several upcoming books that I’m looking forward to. More about them when they drop.
And that’s pretty much my life. As I’m typing this on Sunday, I have a sty that’s all but closed my left eye. I’m headed off for hot packs. By the time you read this, it’ll either be better or I’ll still be applying hot packs. LOL Happy Monday and may this week bring you nothing but good!
Oh, and my attempt at a book trailer….
