'Nuff said.

Currently reading THE BONES OF OTHERS by Vickie McKeehan. This is 1st of 4 in series featuring Skye Cree, pedophile survivor and vigilante.  Here's a description:
Brutalized as a young girl by a vile sexual predator, Skye Cree is a survivor. Guided by the visions of her mystical spirit guide to the whereabouts of abducted girls, she uses her unique abilities to turn her horrifying past into a positive force for justice. Fighting the demons that have haunted her for years, she trusts only in herself—until she falls hard for a man for the first time in her life. Now, discovering her abductor is back with a vengeance, she becomes locked in a deadly race against time to stop the horrors of an evil human-trafficking ring that threatens to tear her world—and her newfound love apart.

Published in 2013, it has 352 pages. This is a Kindle book. 

I'll be starting WORLD OF TROUBLE by Ben H. Winters. This is the final book in The Last Policeman trilogy featuring Hank Palace, a police detective living under the threat of an impending asteroid collision, in Concord, New Hampshire. Here's a description:
The week before an asteroid will slam into Earth, Detective Hank Palace has found sanctuary in the woods of New England, secure in a well-stocked safe house with other onetime members of the Concord police force. But with time ticking away before the asteroid makes landfall, Hank’s safety is only relative, and his only relative—his sister Nico—isn’t safe. Soon, it’s clear that there’s more than one earth-shattering revelation on the horizon, and it’s up to Hank to solve the puzzle before time runs out . . . for everyone.

 Published in 2014, it has 320 pages. This is a digital loan from the library.

Arriving tomorrow is the new Anna Lee Huber, A STUDY IN DEATH. Woot!

Cooler temps yesterday and today. Hallelujah!  Very smoky from fires apparently in Canada and Alaska. Boo. (allergic to smoke). The in-laws have gone back home. Steve actually mowed the back yard.

Another day - don't even talk to me

Thank goodness we're closed at work tomorrow. I'd have to kill someone. In fact, three people called in today. Thanks. Even when I'm sick I work half days so that coverage can still happen.

In-laws are in town and I'll will have to spend time with them; no set plans yet but it's coming. 

Not supposed to be as hot today - high 80s.

Ryker did ok with his sedative last night (i.e. he kept breathing) but it also worked on me because I zonked out at 8 after two nights of not sleeping well.

Reading JUST ONE DAMNED THING AFTER ANOTHER by Jodi Taylor, 1st of 6 (I think) in the Chronicles of St. Mary's time travel series.
Behind the seemingly innocuous fa├žade of St Mary's, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don't do 'time-travel' - they 'investigate major historical events in contemporary time'. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power - especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet. Meet the disaster-magnets of St Mary's Institute of Historical Research as they ricochet around History. Their aim is to observe and document - to try and find the answers to many of History's unanswered questions...and not to die in the process. But one wrong move and History will fight back - to the death. And, as they soon discover - it's not just History they're fighting. Follow the catastrophe curve from eleventh-century London to World War I, and from the Cretaceous Period to the destruction of the Great Library at Alexandria. For wherever Historians go, chaos is sure to follow in their wake ...

Published in 203, it has 334 pages. 

If I don't post tomorrow, have a great, safe Independence Day.

Hat trick.

Just tryin' to sleep here

Monday. Again.

Too hot outside. Again.

Didn't sleep well last night.

Crisis with the new phones at work right away so I was talking with tech support for an hour getting it resolved.

So I'm just going to be quiet the rest of the day and listen to things that make me happy. So there.

See you tomorrow.

Much love,

About to complete my re-watch of NCIS: Los Angeles. Time to go back to Supernatural? We'll see.

We're heading into HOT HOT HOT weather, 90s and 100s. Blech Blech Blech.

Steve has a gun class to coach tomorrow... in the heat all day. I'll be inside doing the weekend chores and hanging out with the boys. We don't have AC in the house so we'll be doing that hanging in the basement.

 Have a great weekend, all.

Much love,
