Wow. We’re a week away from Halloween. How is that even possible?!?! Had to tell from the weather. Old Mother Nature is all weird again. We went from an early freeze to 90s for highs. Tosay? Back to fallish weather and some much needed rain. As a result, I’m “down and in” rather than my usual Wallyworld run. I’m planning French onion soup with croutons and Provolene cheese accompanied with grilled roast beef and baby Swiss sandwiches. Yummy stuff.
In other good news, it was a decent sports weekend for the teams I like. Stormy’s team won their game and they are in the top four of their age group in the league. Even if it means no coffee first thing Satruday morning, getting to watch him play and enjoy the match is worth the caffeine deprivation. Saturday afternoon my OSU Cowboys came from behind to beat Texas. That was a huge game for them. Sadly, the Yankees lost and are currently down 0-3 to the Astros. I’m rooting for the Yanks because Harrison Bader and Matt Carpenter, former Cardinals currently play for them and I don’t really care about the other teams. We’re hoping the playoffs go all seven games for both NLCS and ALCS gameas and then seven in the world series. I always get depressed when there is no baseball. EDIT: World Serious is now set–Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies. Friday night! And OSU (the REAL OSU) moved up from #11 to #9 in the polls. Yay!
I did some new words but not on any of the current WIPs. Still in a mood for Cajun, I added words to the Cajun Wolves series. Not much done on UTAM though. Physical stuff. Shoulder and back. Sucks to get old.
Speaking of nothing at all, I am soooo tired of political advertising. I have a theory, being a PoliSci/Government major. The more negative one side gets, the more scared they are of losing. Just sayin’… Oh, and I’m also sick of the “polling” phone calls which rank right up there with the “car warranty” cazlls. This is why we still have a landline with an answering machine. Sadly, the machine’s robo voice irritates Jake and makes him bark.
In reading/listening news, I’ve fallen into a Archangel/Guild Hunter series marathon. I’m a bit amazed that the last time I did one was back in 2019. I tend to marathon a series when a new book releases but evidently didn’t do that the past couple of times. Ah well. New book drops tomorrow and I’m currently on book 5 of…a bunch. Fifteen? Sixteen? I’m not sure off the top of my head. And yes, I HAVE read/listened to these books at least 7 or 8 times now but the worldbuilding and the character development still boggles my mind. Nalini is an amazing author.
So…*scrolls back to the top and scans*…I’ve talked about food, caffeine deprivation, thew weather, sports, books, and writing. That pretty much covers my world. How’s life in your world?
