Inner peace ... any way you can get it



My class last night was super good. I'm going to look forward to the next eleven weeks.


Arrow is on tonight!


"The Sin-Eater":


China White, Cupid and Liza Warner break out of Iron Heights and head to Star City for revenge. Oliver tries to bring in the newly formed girl gang but the ACU intervenes mid-fight. To his surprise, they are there to arrest the Green Arrow for the murder of Det. Malone. Meanwhile, Lance feels responsible for the prison break after Warner tells him she heard about him working with Damien Darhk.

Steve has shooting tonight. I'm not sure yet what I'll have for dinner but I'd like to do something fun. Hmmm.



Have a good day

Left my picks at home. Looks like we're stuck here.


I'm nearly recovered from the bug I picked up, I think.


I didn't sleep as soundly or as much as I was hoping last night but there it is.



The two-hour season finale of Curse of Oak Island is on tonight but I can't watch it. After all this time investment. Thank you very much.


I have a three-hour online class starting tonight at 6 so I do have a previous engagement preventing my participation. Another self-development kind of thing.



It is going to 60+ degrees today. Un-freaking-believable in February. But we're cooling down again tomorrow. Winter isn't done with us yet.

Have a good Tuesday

And not feeling so great, too


Monday again. Steve and I both are fending off a flu bug. I slept most of yesterday. Better today but not quite there yet.


I finished the Robb book. Very good, per usual.


And I read and finished MURDER ON SISTERS' ROW by Victoria Thompson. 13th of 20 in series featuring Sarah Brandt, a midwife in turn-of-the-20th-century New York City:

With the help of a charitable lady of means, midwife Sarah Brandt rescues a young woman and her newborn from the brothel where the mother was forced to prostitute herself. But their success comes at a high price when their benefactor is found murdered. Though the brothel's madam is immediately considered a suspect, Sarah and Sergeant Frank Malloy investigate, uncovering some unpleasant truths about the victim and her charity-and the woman and child Sarah risked her own life to save.
Published in 2011, it has 304 pages. 

I think I'm sticking now with THE GUESTS ON SOUTH BATTERY by Karen White. 5th of 5 in series featuring Melanie Middleton, inheriting an historic home with ghosts, in Charleston, South Carolina.

With her extended maternity leave at its end, Melanie Trenholm is less than thrilled to leave her new husband and beautiful twins to return to work, especially when she’s awoken by a phone call with no voice on the other end—and the uneasy feeling that the ghostly apparitions that have stayed silent for more than a year are about to invade her life once more.  But her return to the realty office goes better than she could have hoped, with a new client eager to sell the home she recently inherited on South Battery. Most would treasure living in one of the grandest old homes in the famous historic district of Charleston, but Jayne Smith would rather sell hers as soon as possible, guaranteeing Melanie a quick commission.  Despite her stroke of luck, Melanie can’t deny that spirits—both malevolent and benign—have started to show themselves to her again. One is shrouded from sight, but appears whenever Jayne is near. Another arrives when an old cistern is discovered in Melanie’s backyard on Tradd Street.  Melanie knows nothing good can come from unearthing the past. But some secrets refuse to stay buried....

Published in 2017, it has 352 pages.

Couple great moments in NCIS: Los Angeles last night. Deeks rescues Kensi, doesn't even let the bad guy complete his threat.


Look at that "don't mess with me face"!!

Next great moment, Deeks expressed his feelings:


Nothing on TV for me tonight, which is good because I'm going to go to bed early.

 
Even earlier than usual.



Have a great day

Greetings, Friday, I am seeking the weekend ....



Almost didn't get this done today.


Currently reading ECHOES IN DEATH by JD Robb. This is 44th of 44 in series featuring Eve Dallas, a homicide lieutenant in futuristic New York City.

As NY Lt. Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband Roarke are driving home, a young woman―dazed, naked, and bloody―suddenly stumbles out in front of their car. Roarke slams on the brakes and Eve springs into action. Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it’s too late for her husband Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him “the devil”... While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked, this is one case where the evidence doesn’t point to the spouse. So Eve and her team must get started on the legwork, interviewing everyone from dinner-party guests to professional colleagues to caterers, in a desperate race to answer some crucial questions: What does the devil look like? And where will he show up next?
 Published in 2017, it has 384 pages.  Love and adore this series. Love and adore Robb/Roberts' writing.

Finally, NCIS: Los Angeles is back (briefly). If you remember, they left us two or three weeks ago with a cliff hanger. Yes, we've been kept waiting ....


"Payback":

Emotions run high for the team as one agent is held in an unknown location and tortured by the mole, while another discovers he was betrayed by someone he least expected.

And we have The Walking Dead "New Best Friends":

On the search for a missing Alexandrian, Rick and his group encounter a mysterious collective, whose inhabitants are unlike any they have come across.

No plans this weekend other than a haircut tomorrow. Probably getting some groceries and the usual chores. Otherwise ....


Have a good weekend!



Much love,

Eh, not so bad


Back to work today. Nothing spectacular. Stuff to catch up on. And it's practically already the weekend again.


Didn't quite finish my book last night. I know I've only got about less than ten percent to go. Probably tonight will do it.



Nothing on TV for me tonight. Don't know what's for dinner. I do know we'll hang with the dogs and then go to bed.


I don't really have anything else right now. Sorry.




Have a great Thursday



Much love,

Extra tired out today



Well, it looks like I'll be going back to work tomorrow. Monday and Tuesday I didn't even nap though I tried to. Today .... I'm just tired. Could sleep all day.


Arrow tonight!!


"Spectre of the Gun":



A traumatic attack on City Hall triggers painful memories for Rene about his family. Flashbacks reveal how Rene went from being a simple family man to a hero named Wild Dog. Meanwhile, Oliver must deal with the perpetrator behind the attack and realizes the best way to do so is as Mayor Queen instead of the Green Arrow; and tensions run high in the Arrow bunker.

Almost done with the Kelley Armstrong book. About 25% left.

Have a good one


Much love

Happy Valentine's Day



Nope, actually still at home. Somebody else's personal issues.


I guess the plan is the same until Friday when the receptionist requested the day off.


I wish I were having a binge watch fit or an unput-downable book to read, but I'll make some more progress on cleaning my office area.


Curse of Oak Island on TV tonight. "Of Sticks and Stones":
A major dilemma interrupts the search for the original Money Pit.

That's it. Just hangin' out.



Much love,
