A Third of Mondays

Have I mentioned that this October has FIVE Mondays?!?! Monday people are celebrating. The rest of us are just getting by. Lots of coffee, my friends. Lots of coffee. The days are getting shorter. It stays dark until almost 8 o’clock these mornings. All too soon, we’ll be facing the dreaded DST time change. At least it also means cooler temps. I’m a moderate when it comes to weather. 50-60s at night, no warmer tan mid-70s during the day. That’s my comfort zone. Oh, with the occasional nurishing amount of rain.

Speaking of, we did–finally!–get some rain Sunday night. Thunderstorm blew in hard and fast, lasted about an hour, dumped some rain and moved on. Not near enough but I’ll take it! Anything is better than nothing.

Sports is a depressing topic. Stormy had a bye soccer week. My Cowboys lost in like quadruple OT, my Cards were knocked out of the play-offs early and I don’t really have a dog in this show but…baseball and hey, that Mariners/Astros game going 18 innings was crazy Saturday night. My heart goes out to the catchers! That’s worse than catching a double-header because you usually get at least a little break between games.

I was going to make those easy cinnamon rolls again but the store has been out of the Grands Cinnamon Rolls. I bought a double pack of the regular ones and may give that a try. Now that cooler weather is here, I’m all about the comfort food–meaning ooey-gooey warm and yummy.

In reading news, I finished up my marathon of Jayne Castle’s Ghost Hunter/Harmony/Rain Shadow series. The newest release, SWEETWATER & THE WITCH, is a fun addition. I picked up another book through Hoopla and while it’s quirky and different, I haven’t quite sunk my teeth into it. Probably a good thing since I should be proofing my own book, huh.

In writing news, my snippet was picked as the winner of last week’s #ThursdayThreads flash fiction challenge. The expanded version will be up Wednesday for inquiring minds. New words are new words. I truly do need to get UNDER THE ASSASSIN’S MOON finished and published so I can get back to CROSSFIRE, MOONSTRUCK MAFIA: BOSTON, and my Cajun Wolves. I’ll get on that once I’m back from Wallyworld.

No stalling that trip this week. With the change in weather, I need to stock up on some things like sour cream, pasta, and other fall-type staples. On that note, I suppose I should close so I can hit the road, Jack. With Jake. Of course. Hope y’all had a good weekend and that this week will be good to you. Later, gators.

  1. I did stop by this morning and read your post, but I wasn’t up to typing then. Thanks to Aleve and Aspercreme, I was able to successfully navigate work and the ol’ hands still feel pretty okay, so here I am.

    Boo for 5 Mondays and DST. Yay for cooler weather and rain! Bummer about the Cards and the Pokes. Tonight, we find out if the Yankees move on or go home. I hope they kick the Guardians so hard they become the Indians again LOL. Yay for cinnamon rolls! And for reading! And super yay for winning! You’ll get there on the writing. :hugs: Anyway, I hope Wallyworld went well for you this morning. Have a great night.

    I haven’t done much of anything myself lately. Work. Vegging out. Lather, rinse, repeat. I’m pretty darn boring these days.

      Glad the wrist is better and no wories. I forgot my list but checked it when I got home. Only missed 3 items, and one not in stock. Not bad for this old brain. Still, it was a day! As evidenced by today’s post and the fact I’m only getting back to replies now. LOLOL

      Go Yankees. Weather postponed so they play at 3 our time today. And yeah, when I worked for Dad, he expected me to be on time, work my hours and do my job correctly. I can’t tell you the number of hours I spent at the beginning of each month reconcilling the books. Sometimes, I get down to like a quarter so I’d just toss one out of my pocket into the petty cash drawer. LOL Back in those days, it was an old-fashioned adding machine. With a rolle of tape, and a handle that you pulled to print the numbers. Made it easier to double check, I can you that. LOLOL Have a good day!
