Hello, and welcome to Sunday. Time for a long weekend Sunday/Monday post, where I will be linking up to:
I hope you have plans for the long weekend. I started to make some (nothing fancy), but wound up having to cancel them again. You guessed it, I'm working again this weekend. No, I'm not working a full day, but I am going to have to log in for a few hours each day. But that's it. I have other things I need to be working on that are being neglected. Not to mention the condo needs to be cleaned.
I'm glad I worked last weekend. I'm not sure how I would have gotten everything done if I hadn't worked the extra. As it was, I worked overtime during the week, too.
But yes, I'm getting reading and blog work done, too. Is it any wonder I'm tired?
In other news, I didn't even get to go paddle boarding this morning. There's a fire near where I normally paddle. Not only would I not want to be so close to the smoke and ash, but the roads are partially closed.
And we are experiencing a heatwave. It's been over 100 most of the week, and it's supposed to continue most of this coming week. I actually don't mind the heat, would rather be hot than cold. But I am thankful for my AC during the heat waves.

This Coming Week on the Blog:
Sunday - Sunday/Monday Post (You are here!)
Monday - Movie Review: Mystery Woman - Wild West Mystery

Wednesday - Ornament Review: Pixar Lamp and Ball
Thursday - Book Review: Death in the Aegean by M. A. Monnin

Saturday - Weekly TV Thoughts
The first book is No Parm No Foul by Linda Reilly. This is the second in her Grilled Cheese Mysteries series. I really enjoyed the first, so I'm looking forward to this one. I think I'm going to hold it until October, however, since it is set at Halloween. Might as well enjoy it in season, right?
I also got The Plot and the Pendulum by Jenn McKinlay this week. It's the thirteenth book in her Library Lover's Mysteries. Obviously, it involves the works of Edgar Allan Poe and is also set around Halloween. Yes, I will be reading it in October, but that's because the book doesn't come out until October 11th. Yes, I snagged a copy of this one via NetGalley.
What I'm Currently Reading:Buttercream Betrayal by the end of the day today. This is another fun entry in Kim Davis's Cupcake Caterer series, and I'm anxious to find out who did it. I'll be reviewing it as part of a blog tour on the fifteenth.
Sunday and Monday, around work, I plan to make progress in Under Lock and Skeleton Key by Gigi Pandian. I've been hearing great things about this series debut, and I've enjoyed other books by Gigi that I've read, so I'm looking forward to it.
That's it for me. Hope you have a great weekend and week.
