It's toooooo hoooooooooooooootttttt


Wednesday

Sarah's shawl. Done-zo. On it's way to Canada - plus a couple books and stuff.

I'm looking for a second read and I don't know what I'm in the mood for. I have a library book but I don't know if it's time for it yet. 


Have I mentioned it's hot today?

No sprints tonight. I'm hoping Steve doesn't have the range - it's 106 today.

Have a good day

Much love,

Wishes


Tuesday. Receptionist called in sick (headache).


I finished the Donna Andrews book. 3 stars. I remember some of it now. Still reading NAVOLA but looking for something to add to it. I haven't decided yet. Current events have been dirverting.

Strange times. I have thoughts about what's going on but I'm keeping them to myself for now.

Sprints tonight. Crocheting.

Have a good day



Much love,

I do not acknowledge Monday


Monday. Service Manager back. A new week.

I've pretty much finished the shawl. I just need to weave in the yarn ends in a couple places. Next, I need to figure out how to ship it to Canada.

Next up - finish the Miranda Christmas blanket which should go quickly. Finish the wedding blanket - more involved. Neither of which can be brought to work to work on during lunch so I'll be starting the Christmas blanket for Kevin. 

Currently reading a library book, WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE PARROTS by Donna Andrews 5th of 36 in series featuring Meg Langslow, decorative blacksmith in a small Virginia town

Meg Langslow knew the fan convention for her actor-boyfriend's hit television series was going to be the ultimate in weird. But she came along because she figured Michael could use an occasional dose of sanity-and because it was an inspired place to sell her hand-crafted weapons. And so far, she was dealing pretty well with the costumed fans camped outside, the batch of escaped parrots and monkeys frolicking throughout the hotel...and the minefield of egos lurking behind the show's success. But soon after Meg goes head-to-head with egomaniacal series star Tamerlaine Wynncliffe-Jones, the "Queen B" turns up brutally murdered. Now, with Michael in the running as prime suspect, Meg will go up against an all-star cast of not-even-innocent parties, hidden identities, and buried motives. And she'll cross swords with a deviously obsessed murderer determined to write her out of this picture for good.

Published 2003; 354 pages. This is actually a re-read for me but I have very little memory of the plot and/or characters.

Still reading NAVOLA. 


No sprints tonight. 

Have a good day

TGIF!


Friday. Service manager out all week. 

Once again, no real updates. I mostly viewed the convention coverage this week on YouTube and not as much reading. Last night I ripped a row out on the shawl because I thought I'd made a mistake but apparently, I hadn't. Lost time and wasted effort.

The clock is ticking and I need to get the wedding and Christmas stuff done and more progress. 

Recapping: reading and listening to NAVOLA by Paolo Bacigalupi (fantasy) and L.A. BURNING by D. C. Taylor (crime fiction/thriller). Crocheting an orange shawl for an online friend who is starting the process for a heart transplant but I also need to finish the wedding afghan for our neighbors by October and I've only a skein and a half left to do on one of five Christmas present to be done by December 24th. I have a handful of YouTube book people's videos to catch up on. I'm in the middle of watching Blue Bloods and My Life Is Murder on Amazon Prime.

Sprints tomorrow. Steve has Big Sky State Games event to run tomorrow. I'm reading and crocheting. Walking Keo. Staying out of the heat.

Have a good weekend

Much love,

Eye on the prize: the weekend


Thursday. Service manager out still.

I am planning on listening to the audiobook of L.A. Burning. I started reading it last night and it has grabbed me so far. It's gritty. The female protagonist isn't a "good" girl but she's honest about it. 

Sprints tonight. Crocheting. Watching YouTube. 

Have a good day

Much love,

Aw, do we have to?


Wednesday


Not much really going on. No changes, no updates. Nothing to write home about.


I'm just plugging away on the side quest crochet shawl. Same books in play. 


No sprints tonight, crocheting very much, watching YouTube. Steve has the gun range.


Have a good day
