And not feeling so great, too

Monday again. Steve and I both are fending off a flu bug. I slept most of yesterday. Better today but not quite there yet.

I finished the Robb book. Very good, per usual.

And I read and finished MURDER ON SISTERS' ROW by Victoria Thompson. 13th of 20 in series featuring Sarah Brandt, a midwife in turn-of-the-20th-century New York City:

With the help of a charitable lady of means, midwife Sarah Brandt rescues a young woman and her newborn from the brothel where the mother was forced to prostitute herself. But their success comes at a high price when their benefactor is found murdered. Though the brothel's madam is immediately considered a suspect, Sarah and Sergeant Frank Malloy investigate, uncovering some unpleasant truths about the victim and her charity-and the woman and child Sarah risked her own life to save.
Published in 2011, it has 304 pages. 

I think I'm sticking now with THE GUESTS ON SOUTH BATTERY by Karen White. 5th of 5 in series featuring Melanie Middleton, inheriting an historic home with ghosts, in Charleston, South Carolina.

With her extended maternity leave at its end, Melanie Trenholm is less than thrilled to leave her new husband and beautiful twins to return to work, especially when she’s awoken by a phone call with no voice on the other end—and the uneasy feeling that the ghostly apparitions that have stayed silent for more than a year are about to invade her life once more.  But her return to the realty office goes better than she could have hoped, with a new client eager to sell the home she recently inherited on South Battery. Most would treasure living in one of the grandest old homes in the famous historic district of Charleston, but Jayne Smith would rather sell hers as soon as possible, guaranteeing Melanie a quick commission.  Despite her stroke of luck, Melanie can’t deny that spirits—both malevolent and benign—have started to show themselves to her again. One is shrouded from sight, but appears whenever Jayne is near. Another arrives when an old cistern is discovered in Melanie’s backyard on Tradd Street.  Melanie knows nothing good can come from unearthing the past. But some secrets refuse to stay buried....

Couple great moments in NCIS: Los Angeles last night. Deeks rescues Kensi, doesn't even let the bad guy complete his threat.

Look at that "don't mess with me face"!!

Next great moment, Deeks expressed his feelings:

Nothing on TV for me tonight, which is good because I'm going to go to bed early.

Even earlier than usual.

Have a great day

Much love,
