A Quiet Week July 28, 2017

It’s been a very quiet week compared to my super busy weekend. I got to see all the people I planned to, running up to north western Ohio, and then to Michgan, and back down again for even more birthday celebrations. And tonight, homemade spaghetti sauce to finish off the week.

I had a great time visiting with my brother, mom, dad, nieces and nephew. We played a couple new (to me) boardgames: Black Sail and Quartz, which were competitive enough, but not overly so. My brother and his kids gave me another board game that I have not yet opened: Champions of Midgard.

I had lovely food with everyone, including trying out a new Sushi place near where I live (I had a Korean dish instead), and a beef brisket, freshly smoked, for my birthday dinner.

The week I have spent relaxing, cleaning up, and working. A nice quiet week to finish out July.

I’ve also been lazy about audiobooks. I listened to The Martian, and Catching Fire. I really need to go through and find next books in all the series I’ve been listening to. I’ll have to do that this weekend. Also this weekend is finishing up my newest D&D character for a brand new campaign on Tuesday: Guardians of the Multiverse. It’s going to be great!

Today is Erika’s Birthday, Saturday Shari’s, Monday mine, and next weekend Marianne’s! I’m going to visit my family this weekend to celebrate my Dad’s from earlier this month, and my niece’s in August (as well as mine). And a birthday lunch with Erika on Sunday in the plan, since I’ll be so far north anyway. Then Monday for birthday lunch with Marianne who’s in from Scotland for the a while this summer, and in town for the weekend, and birthday dinner in the evening.

It’s been a rough week, been still vaguely ill all week, hopefully done now. We shall see. Didn’t work as much as I should have, but worked as much as I could.

I’ve been lazy about finding a new book to listen to, so I’ve re-listened to Storm Front and Hunger Games.

Late post, as is usual lately. Stayed in Thursday with major headache to go with the massive storms and flooding. Worked a day yesterday, but home sick again today with a mild fever. Bleh.

In other news, finishing up the last few totes of current collection 3… until he gets more. 😉 Library’s having some good programs with the kids. Lots of participation in SRC.

I finished Aeronaut’s Windlass, but waiting on holds for my next book. Trying to finish Jordan/Sanderson. Lots of series going, just gotta finish them up.

Hope everyone had a great and safe Independence Day celebration this week. I watched fireworks on TV, watched ID4, and attended a couple cookouts. It was a great time with friends.

The library is staying pretty busy, with a farm visit this week aside from our usual afternoon programs. Our summer reading program is going really well, too. Lots of kids and adults reading through the summer.

I’ve put Wizard on pause, and now I’ve started The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher. I’ve also started the Final season of Bones. 😦

Happy Birthday to Dad in a couple days! 🙂
