I know. I’m a broken recoard. And temps in the 100s is not necessarily a new thing for us Okies. Still, it’s miserable and misery loves company, am I right?Every time my AC stutters a little, I have a mild panick attack. Which is crazy because, being older than dirt, I remember life BAC (Before Air Conditioning). Somehow, we managed. Because we didn’t know any better. Swamp coolers were the thing and most businesses just had massive ceiling fans. Still, I totally identify with the above .gif. I’m also old enough to remember the movie and the actress. And yes, I know that feeling.
Okay, moving on. I’m sooooo EXCITED! As most of y’all know, I was a HUGE “Live PD” fan. Loved the hosts, the LEOs, and the departments. Then “woke” happened. I stopped watching A&E when they suddenly cut the program. Well, “Live PD” has been reincarnated as “On Patrol Live.” Dan Abrans is back as host and producer. And STICKS! I LOVE STICKS! Aka Sean Larkin, retired Tulas PD SWAT officer. Cureently, their 3rd is a deputy from Richland County. So many of my fav LEOs are back and it’s awesome to see them. LT Danny Brown is now a captain. The civilians still run the gambit. The criminals (innocent until proven guilty in a court of law) are still mostly dumb–because if they were smart a) they wouldn’t be doing the crime or b) they wouldn’t get caught. Anyway, it’s on REEL Z channel. Our Uverse carries it but it can also be streemed. CLICK HERE FOR INFO. You know, in case you liked “Live PD” too.
In other news, believe it or not, I’ve made progress on the last Moonstruck Wolf book needing revisions. I’ve gotten through a handful of chapters this past week and intend to finish up this week. God willing, the AC keeps working, we don’t have brown outs/blackouts, and Boone leaves me alone. That’s the plan. I keep having to backtrack because the previous book shares a lot of characters and plot with this book and remembering what went down is playing havoc with continuity. My brain = Swiss cheese, remember? Still, progress!
I finished off the Olympus Pride series by Suzanne Wright. She writes quirky characters and odd shifters (the latest release in audio features a Pallas cat and a bear cat aka red panda.) Also down and dirty, in case that’s not your thing. There is another book (#4) out in the series, but not in audio yet and I can’t find any info on when it will be. Then I listened to my first Emily Henry romcom, BOOK LOVERS. She’s a literary agent, he’s a high-powered book editor and they have a small town romance. And there is Big Foot porn. No. Really. My only ding is that it’s 1st Person Present POV which is sooo totally not my catnip. Still, I gave it 5 stars. Currently reading BETWIXT by Darynda Jones. She also has quirky characters but its something to bridge the gap until it’s close enough to Nalini Singh’s new release next month and I start my reread of the Psy-Changeling Trinity series.
Okay. Writing. TV. Reading. Sports. My poor Cardinals are running hot and cold. *sigh* Stormy’s soccer season is over. The last two games (okay, technically, I guess they are matches), the opposing teams didn’t have enough players so Stormy volunteered to play goalie for them so the teams could at least scrimmage. I love little kid sports! 🥰
Wildlife and critters update. I saved a juvenile blue jay from the garage. Pete was very intent on helping me. I managed to capture the bird and not kill it, me, or the cat before getting it outside and free. In Pete news, I’ve never figured out why the intrawebz has a thing about ginger/orange cats. There are all these memes and threads about them sharing one brain cell among them all. I’ve been adopted by two orange cats in my life–Moses, the one-eyed street cat who used to catch and gift me with moles and baby rabbits (on my chest while I’m sleeping in bed) and now Pete. He was skittish when he first appeared but he figured out that garage life is a good life. He could come in but he’s still not too sure about the indoor fuzzy children. Anywayh. y’all know that Lawyer Guy reinstalled a new cat door on one of the garage doors. For about three weeks, we had to prop it open for him to come through from outside to inside because the door had a magnet and it sort of “stuck. I went out one morning to feed him and he wasn’t in the garage. That’s when I realized the folded bit of duct tape we used to prop the door open was gone and the door closed. The next thing I knew, Pete butted the door with his head and in he came. I’m so proud! He figured it out. I’m also putting extra water out for birds and furry things that skitter about at night.
So, that’s pretty much my life. This week is all hundreds until we get to week’s end when there’s a really good chance of rain and temps in the low 90s. Yes, please! Today is an early trip to Wallyworld before the pavement gets hot. Then I need to do a load of laundry before the day heats up. After that, it’s my usual day–coffee, email, blog reading, procrastination… No, I plan on knuckling down on the damn book. I’ve wasted way too much time letting my head get in the way. How’s your life? Anything getting in your way lately?
