Welcome to Sunday, the middle point of a long weekend, and another Sunday/Monday post. As usual, I'll be linking up to:
I had to work all five days this past week. After taking off the last two Fridays in a row, that definitely felt a little weird. However, it's another month end, so I had a busy week. We were supposed to get off two hours early on Friday, but I only got off an hour early. I just had too much to try to finish to make this coming week go better. Yes, I am off on Monday for Independence Day, so that will be nice.
Yep, I went paddle boarding Saturday morning. The friend who got me into paddle boarding hasn't been able to go for several weeks, but we met up at the lake today and enjoyed a spin around it. It was nice to be out there and be out there with her again.
I signed up for COYER Seasons Summer this week. A chance to log every book I read over the next three months? Sign me up!
I also started the Pod Meets World podcast this week. Danielle Fishel, Will Friedle, and Rider Strong, aka Topanga, Eric, and Shawn and going to watch Boy Meets World and share their reaction to the show now and memories of filming it. I need to rewatch the Pilot episode and then listen to that episode, which dropped this week, but I have listened to the introductory episode, and it was a lot fun. I watched the later episodes of the show when it was on, but I bought a DVD set and watched it all a few years ago. (You can find all the reviews on the blog if you are interested by going to the index, but here's the direct link to season 1 to get you started.) I think I'll try to rewatch with them to see what I think. At least that's the plan now. We'll see if it continues over the next three years.
That's about all the excitement around here. Shall we move on?

Book Haul:Movieland by Lee Goldberg actually came out on 6/21, but my late pre-order from Amazon didn't arrive until this week. It's the fourth in his Eve Ronin series. Yes, this is a police procedural and not my typical cozies, but I've been reading Lee's books for years, and I enjoy them.
My other two are cozies that both came out this last Tuesday. Gone but Not Furgotten is the sixth Cat Cafe Mystery from Cate Conte. I'm actually allergic to cats, but this series always makes me wish I could go adopt one or two myself. Meanwhile, Dairy, Dairy, Quite Contrary is the first in a new series from Amy Lillard that sounds like fun.
Naturally, I'm anxious to get to all three of them. It's just a matter of when.
What I'm Currently Reading:The Drinking Gourd by Katherine Fast, but I know it's been in the past few months since it came out in the past few months. I actually just finished that one up (Saturday afternoon when I'm typing this). The plan is to move into Poison Pen by Sheila Lowe, which I bought at the LA Times Festival of Books back in April. (We won't even talk about the earlier edition of the book that I bought years ago and have never read. I bought this edition because it's been edited, so I decided this was the one to read.) I'm hoping to get enough reading done to be 2/3 of the way through Poison Pen Monday night so I can finish it up Tuesday. I'll be reviewing both of these books the week of July 10th.
For those in the US, have a great and safe holiday Monday. I hope everyone has a great week!
