Happy Sunday, everyone! Time for a Sunday/Monday post. As usual, I will be linking up to:
Anyone else planning to watch the Super Bowl? While usually, my "watching" football means I have the TV on with the sound off while I'm doing other things, even reading, I do actually try to watch the Super Bowl, mainly for the commercials. This year, I actually care about the game since I've become a fair-weather Chiefs fan. Mainly, I'm a Mahomes fan since he's my quarterback for my fantasy league. Sometime, I'll watch the Super Bowl with friends, but this year, I'm planning to stay home and watch it.
You see, someone still hasn't taken down his Christmas decorations. We aren't naming names to protect me, I mean this guilty person. And since they are in my living room with my TV, I figure that's a good time to do it. Or at least start. It will take me longer than the game, but I will have a good jump on it. Of course, I may have to turn off my computer to make sure I don't distract myself too much. I've been thinking I would be able to start on it earlier this week, and it hasn't happened yet.
Not that this week was anything too exciting or different. I didn't do much beside work, in fact. Super exciting, right?
I didn't paddle Saturday morning. It was cold and windy, which wouldn't make it any fun. Plus, it was game day with my friends, so it was nice to have a quiet Saturday morning at home before I left for that.
And I think that's pretty much my week.

I got two books this past week. One of them was an eARC of Till Death Do Us Port by Kate Lansing, the fourth in her Colorado Wine Mysteries. I've enjoyed the others in the series, and I'm looking forward to reading this one.
The other book I got was my pre-order of City of the Dead, the fourth City Spies book from James Ponti. I've got to admit, I didn't think I would be able to include the book this week. I got the shipping notification from Barnes and Noble on Monday, but the tracking never updated. I contacted them via chat yesterday mid-afternoon, and I got the usual "you need to wait, there is nothing we can do yet" run around. I explained that I've had bad luck with them in the last couple of months with this kind of thing happening, but they didn't really respond to that. So I was rather embarrassed when I found the book in my mailbox when I checked the mail after work. I was trying to be firm but not rude. Hopefully, that's how it came across. As to the tracking not updating, it looks like a second tracking number was placed over the one I got in my email. So, I bet that one updated all along the route while the one I was watching never updated.
All that's a long way of saying that I have the book, which is a good things because....
What I'm Reading:
I'm currently reading City of the Dead by James Ponti. Okay, so as of when I'm typing this, I'm only 20 pages into the book. I doubt I'll get very far into it over the weekend since I've got games on Saturday and work around the condo on Sunday to cut into my reading time. But I hope to get a little further into it before I dive in Monday and Tuesday. If you aren't familiar with the series, these are fun middle grade spy stories. I highly recommend them. I'll be reviewing this one in a couple of weeks, if all goes according to plan.
That's it for me. Hope you have a great week.
