I see. And how are you feeling today?

I am feeling almost human today. Woot! I'm getting pretty tired of Progresso chicken rice soup after five days. The chicken soup that I really love? Lipton Ring-o-Noodle. Ever since I was a kid.

I don't know what it is about the ring noodles. The straight noodles make me gag but not the rings. This soup is hard to find, too. There's one store in town that I've found it at; so I stopped there yesterday and voila!

Happy camper, yes. It's the simple things.

Along with the Will Thomas book (hardcover) I'm also reading THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT by Simone St. James on the Kindle. This is a stand alone though it still has her common tropes of set in the 1920s with paranormal/gothic elements. Here's a description:
London, 1925. Glamorous medium Gloria Sutter made her fortune helping the bereaved contact loved ones killed during the Great War. Now she's been murdered at one of her own séances, after leaving a message requesting the help of her former friend and sole rival, Ellie Winter. Ellie doesn't contact the dead—at least, not anymore. She specializes in miraculously finding lost items. Still, she can't refuse the final request of the only other true psychic she has known. Now Ellie must delve into Gloria's secrets and plunge back into the world of hucksters, lowlifes, and fakes. Worse, she cannot shake the attentions of handsome James Hawley, a damaged war veteran who has dedicated himself to debunking psychics. As Ellie and James uncover the sinister mysteries of Gloria's life and death, Ellie is tormented by nightmarish visions that herald the grisly murders of those in Gloria's circle. And as Ellie’s uneasy partnership with James turns dangerously intimate, an insidious evil force begins to undermine their quest for clues, a force determined to bury the truth, and whoever seeks to expose it...

Published in 2015, it has 331 pages. 

The CW channel is repeating their seasons of The Flash and Arrow during the summer. Last night was the season 3 first episode of Arrow (love!). Their seasons are 23 episodes long and it is kinda amazing to see the beginning again of such a tough, dark, painful season (death/near death, denial of happiness, etc., the usual angst). It's called "The Calm" and, yes, it was definitely the calm before the storm.

It was such a long haul over 23 episodes and seeing the characters almost happy and knowing what was the coming for them ....  And, yes, I'm using this as an excuse to post a photo. :)

Have a great day! It's already Thursday!

Much love,
