Welcome to another Sunday/Monday post. As usual, I will be linking up to:
It's was a quiet week in some ways and not in others.
On the one hand, I didn't do much out of the ordinary. Work, reading, and watching TV. I'm still in the middle of season 2 of Quantum Leap. I've moved into the second third of the season.
On the other hand, I did some training with my co-worker who is moving to a different department. And I'm stressing about all the added work that is coming my way starting on Monday. I just don't know how I am going to get everything done.
I did have to get a new battery for my car this week. It was barely starting when I went to get my allergy shots on Tuesday. I went with the battery at the car repair place I can literally walk to from my condo so I could keep working, but I'm questioning if it was really the best thing to do. I think I would have gotten a better battery if I'd gone back to the dealer. Especially since there was still warranty left on my old battery. Oh well. I can't dwell on that.
Saturday morning, I went out paddle boarding. In addition to the friend who introduced me to it, we were joined by another friend, who also happens to be our pastor's wife. That was fun.
Then this afternoon into evening was my monthly game time hosted by my former roommate and his wife. Played one game I had played one time before. But was introduced to several other games. My head was spinning by the time I left trying to figure out all these rules and strategies. And I was the first to leave after about 6 hours or so. But I really liked one of the new games I learned. Hoping to play it again.

The first I got was from author Dana Mentink. She was offering a free book to her newsletter subscribers. While it was more romance with a little bit of mystery, I figured I'd download it for free. However, it looks like I actually got a different book. Not that I'm complaining. Free is free, right? The title I actually got was Return to Pelican Inn.
I also got two ARCs from Kensington Cozies this week. The Plot Thickets by Julia Henry is fifth in her Garden Squad Mysteries series. It comes out at the end of October. Meanwhile, Bake Offed is the eighth in Maya Corrigan's Five Ingredient Mysteries. It will be out at the end of November. I won't get to either one until closer to release date, but I enjoy both series, so I'm looking forward to both of them.
What I'm Currently Reading:Death on the Set by Rose Kerr. Not that I've made any progress in it today. I was too busy doing things with people to sit and read. It's good to be out with others, so I'm not complaining. Depending on how much of the book I get read on Sunday, I might finish it or not. It's at the stage where it could easily go either way.
Next on my reading list is Round Up the Usual Peacocks by Donna Andrews. Her books are always such fun, so I'm really looking forward to it. I'll start it either Monday or Tuesday.
Have a good week, everyone!
