Yesterday I accomplished much. Today ... not so much. Yeah, I'm doing laundry but that's about it.
I napped most of the morning after walking the dogs at 7 and then reading the news with breakfast. Now, I'm in my office, reading the news and blogs, will be cleaning up my emails, reading the weekend WSJ.
I finished the Jecks book last night. I've got a 14-day library book now, GARMENT OF SHADOWS by Laurie R King. This is 13th of 13 in series featuring Mary Russell, student and then wife of Sherlock Holmes. Here is a description:
In a strange room in Morocco, Mary Russell is trying to solve a pressing mystery: Who am I? She has awakened with shadows in her mind, blood on her hands, and soldiers pounding on the door. Out in the hivelike streets, she discovers herself strangely adept in the skills of the underworld, escaping through alleys and rooftops, picking pockets and locks. She is clothed like a man, and armed only with her wits and a scrap of paper containing a mysterious Arabic phrase. Overhead, warplanes pass ominously north. Meanwhile, Holmes is pulled by two old friends and a distant relation into the growing war between France, Spain, and the Rif Revolt led by Emir Abd el-Krim—who may be a Robin Hood or a power mad tribesman. The shadows of war are drawing over the ancient city of Fez, and Holmes badly wants the wisdom and courage of his wife, whom he’s learned, to his horror, has gone missing. As Holmes searches for her, and Russell searches for herself, each tries to crack deadly parallel puzzles before it’s too late for them, for Africa, and for the peace of Europe.
It was published in September 2012 and has 288 pages. For some reason, as many times as I tried to read the previous book, PIRATE KING, I couldn't get into it though I enjoy this series. I'm hoping this book will bring me back.
I urge you to take the time to read the previous post, the current events post for today. It is excellent and well worth it.
Tonight, I'm making enchiladas and we'll watch some TV. Then the weekend will be over, all too quickly.
