We are NOT amused...

What we think we look like waking up from a nap vs what we REALLY look like waking up from a nap:

How to wear out a toddler:

I love this:

This is the jacket I got:

Yeah, I like it a lot.

I think I'm in the mood to read RED CELL by Mark Henshaw. This is 1st of 2 in series featuring Kyra Stryker and Jonathan Burke, working in the Red Cell, the CIA’s out-of-the-box think tank, in Langley, Virginia. Here's a description:
A debut thriller following two CIA outcasts who must race to stop a secret Chinese weapon that threatens to provoke a world war. After her first assignment in Venezuela goes disastrously awry, rookie case officer Kyra Stryker is brought back to Langley to work in the Red Cell, the CIA’s out-of-the-box think tank. There she’s paired with Jonathan Burke, a straitlaced analyst who has alienated his colleagues with his unorthodox methods and a knack for always being right, political consequences be damned. When a raid on Chinese spies in Taiwan ends in a shoot-out and the release of a deadly chemical, CIA director Kathy Cooke turns to the Red Cell to figure out why China is ready to invade the island nation without any fear of reprisal from the US Navy. Stryker and Burke’s only lead is the top CIA asset in China, code named Pioneer. But when Pioneer reports that Chinese security has him under surveillance, Stryker is offered a chance for redemption with a highly dangerous mission: extract Pioneer from China before he’s arrested and executed. The answers he holds could mean the difference between peace in the Pacific or another world war.  From CIA headquarters to the White House to a Navy carrier in the South China Sea and the dark alleyways of Beijing, Red Cell takes readers on a whirlwind race against time as Stryker and Burke work to save Pioneer and discover the hidden threat to America’s power: China’s top-secret weapon.

Published in 2012, it has 338 pages. I guess I'm in a "spy" type mood.

I've got Once Upon a Time on Sunday. Football. Etc. Etc.
