Wow. Yet another weekend has mugged us — I can’t believe that three days blew by so quickly!
Suffice to say, I got some reading done, and some writing-organizing. I fiddled with print editions of FRIGHT COURT and CAPITOL MAGIC (should be out around Halloween…), and I poked at the Diamond Brides romance series.
I finished reading Jessica Scott’s BECAUSE OF YOU (hot military romance, and a recent USA Today Bestseller – go, Jessica!), and I started reading Anna Kendall’s CROSSING OVER. (Anna Kendall is actually Nancy Kress — I’ve had this book on my to-be-read list for a long time, but I’m just getting to it. And it’s good, and thought-provoking, and a lot darker than I expected, even though Nancy said it was dark!)
I watched a *lot* of baseball (including the Nationals’ longest game ever (time-wise) which was tied-for-longest-game-ever, inning-wise. They won, which almost made it all worthwhile.
I watched the movie PROMISED LAND, which wasn’t as bad as I’d feared. And I watched the latest installments of BREAKING BAD and THE NEWSROOM, both of which feel strange, because I’ve gotten used to power-watching multiple episodes of shows at a time.
I’m working on a new knitting project, a gift for a friend, using an easy pattern that doesn’t take a lot of concentration. (It’s also quite forgiving; a few mis-stitched stitches don’t even show up!)
And I ate a ridiculous amount of food, without doing any cooking. In a tragedy for my waistline, I discovered that the really good pizza place down the road *delivers* — not just pizza, but “cheesecake truffles” for dessert. My life might never be the same…
I did some gardening, digging out the liriope that succumbed to crown rot. (Sigh…) Let’s just say that it’s a lot easier to dig out liriope with an appropriate tool. And a trowel is not an appropriate tool. (But a shovel, borrowed from a neighbor, is.)
This morning, I took my poor car into the body shop, to have its front bumper replaced. (For those who missed the drama, someone hit-and-runned the car, cracking the bumper and taking the air grille on the right side.) The shop was very easy to work with, and I hope the repairs will be done soon. I have a rental car (covered by my insurance) until the operation is done.
And that’s life in Klaskyville. How was your weekend?Read More
