Ohhhhh we're getting closer to the weekend ...

Ok, still nothing really going on today, too.

AND there's nothing on TV tonight to talk about.

 Well, maybe tomorrow's post will be better.

Have a good day

Just chillin'

Wow, just a whole lot of nothing going on today.

Steve has the gun range tonight. I've not nothing on TV so I'll probably read or journal.

And sleeping.

And there's always tomorrow. Maybe something will happen.

Have a good day

That's more like it

TV tonight, we've got Curse of Oak Island. Oh, and I keep forgetting This Is Us is back from hiatus tonight. "The Last Seven Weeks":

Randall's campaign comes to a close. Kevin meets someone from Zoe's past. Kate and Toby get ready for the baby.

Currently reading MARTIANS ABROAD by Carrie Vaughn. Stand alone. SFF.

Polly Newton has one single-minded dream, to be a starship pilot and travel the galaxy. Her mother, the Director of the Mars Colony, derails Polly's plans when she sends Polly and her genius twin brother, Charles, to Galileo Academy on Earth. Homesick and cut off from her plans for her future, Polly cannot seem to fit into life on Earth. Strange, unexplained, dangerous coincidences centered on their high-profile classmates begin piling up. Charles may be right—there's more going on than would appear, and the stakes are high. With the help of Charles, Polly is determined to find the truth, no matter the cost.

Monday always comes back ....

The weekend wasn't horrible. Dallas lost. Expected that.

 Napped. Did laundry. Watched a Hallmark movie, Outlander, and an emotional NCIS Los Angeles.

But overall not bad. Monday is being .... Monday.

I read over the weekend SCHOOLED IN DEATH by Kate Flora. 9th of 9 in series featuring Thea Kozak, an educational consultant in Massachusetts, now Maine.

For school campus crisis counselor, Thea Kozak, Mondays are the worst day of the week. So when the phone rings early in the morning, she expects bad news. What she doesn't expect is the pain laden voice of the headmaster of the highly-respected Simmons School pouring forth his dire situation. A sophomore student had given birth to a pre-mature infant, then abandoned the child claiming it was not hers because she'd never had sex. With the baby in NICU, the teenaged mother facing criminal charges and parents demanding answers, it’s Thea's job to restore calm and order while gathering the facts of what actually happened. Then Heidi, the alleged mother, disappears and the body of a stranger is discovered in the campus woods, murdered. Pregnant herself, Thea now races the clock fearing the young girl will be the next victim while every discovered clue points to an impossible fact: Heidi's assertion may actually be true.
 Published 2019; 261 pages. I used to read this series back in the day. I was surprised to see a new one and at the end of this one was a preview for a new one next year.

Nothing on TV for me tonight although I'll wind up watching Street Outlaws with Steve.

Have a good day

All is well

Sorry for the non-post yesterday. Better attitude but nothing really to report on plus I had to cover phones in the afternoon for receptionist to go to the dentist.

But it's Friday! At last!

Not much going on this weekend. No "have-to's" if you know what I mean.

On Sunday TV, Outlander “If Not for Hope”:

Brianna has some time on her hands while she waits for news about Roger's rescue. Now living with Aunt Jocasta at River Run, Brianna's pregnant belly is only getting bigger, and Jocasta is worried about her giving birth to a bastard child. So, she rounds up some potential husbands for Bree. Meanwhile, Jamie, Claire and Young Ian are still on their mission to find the Mohawk tribe and Roger up north. And that journey proves difficult.

And NCIS Los Angeles "Better Angels":

The NCIS team works with the Global Criminal Tribunal when a Syrian seeking justice, David Sarraf, is brutally attacked while delivering evidence that would prove chemical weapons were used on civilians. Also, Kensi stays at the crime scene and comforts Sarraf who is pinned behind a vehicle

I hope to do some writing or journaling.

Have a good weekend

You've got to be kidding me

The day overall has been better. Just a couple blips. But I'm getting tired of the bad attitudes I keep running into.

Nothing on TV for me tonight. I may watch the On Demand version of Manifest from Monday. Steve is also indicating he may not go to the range tonight. But I'm not cooking dinner.

I feel like I'm getting my book mojo back. Maybe I'll work on that?

Or read. Just starting LIFE INSIDE THE BUBBLE by Dan Bongino. Nonfiction

"He swore to take a bullet for the President and left it all behind to take a bullet for the American people"  Why would a successful, twelve-year Secret Service agent resign his position in the prime of his career to run for political office against all the odds?  New York Times bestseller, Life Inside the Bubble is an intimate look at life inside the presidential “bubble,” a haze of staffers, consultants, cronies, acolytes, bureaucrats and lobbyists that creates the “alternate reality” in which monumental policy decisions are made. And it is the story of a dedicated Secret Service professional who, after years inside the “bubble,” walked away in favor of sounding a clarion call to the American people in defense of sane government and the US Constitution. Finally, why the Fast & Furious scandal, the bombings in Boston and the terrorist attacks in Benghazi are harbingers of what’s to come without a bold change in direction.

It's been a terrible week ....

.... and it's only Tuesday.

There is something in the air that is creating nasty people out there.

And it's gotten to the point where I just want to hide away until it passes. It's just everywhere.

Topped off with getting verification that the negativity I was picking up from a friend ... was actual. Not my friend anymore. So that hurt.

Nothing on TV tonight. I'll probably read. I'm really enjoying the book I started yesterday.

Have a good day
