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.

Much love,
PK the Bookeemonster
