Hi folks. Big announcement tomorrow, but the ducks must be in their row first.

A quiet week. We had a tea party at work on Monday. Our Teen Guru is moving up to a new position at another building. All the tasty treats and finger foods.

Speaking of tasty… I tried out a couple P.F. Changs’ meals in a frozen bag this week, and they were quite good. Not as good as in the restaurant, of course, because frozen, but good enough for my cooking. I had Chang’s Chicken and Mongolian Beef with sting beans (I also added snow peas, cuz mmm greens).

I hope everyone had a nice Palm Sunday, and will have a nice Holy Week. I streamed the service from my favorite local church. And got a Good Friday service… they’re doing a series and for whatever reason, it timed out that way.

In audio books, I finished Black Prism, and listened to The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott. Now, I’m listening to American Gods, because the show was good. I also pre-ordered Brief Cases by Jim Butcher, which is coming out in June, and bought the audio for A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo by Jill Twiss. The latter is only a few minutes long, so I’ll be listening to it later today.

Happy St. Patrick’s and St. Gertrude’s Weekend! March 18, 2018

Snakes and Cats, what a combination!

Anyway, I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday weekend. I went to a couple parties with friends, and now I’m having a lazy Sunday. Found old character sheets that are going to be used again soon. Found one of two needed notebooks for those old games. Updated this month’s budget numbers, and decided I could order delivery for lunch. I should do some cleaning and such, but that’ll probably wait for tomorrow.

I didn’t go skating, but soon, I’ll get to go a lot more often. Yay!

Congrats to my brother, I forgot to say, who is now engaged. More family members, coming soon.

I’m liking The Black Prism, and I have a teen book The Alchemyst waiting in the wings. Watched Zootopia and Emoji Movie this weekend, too. They were alright, just fluff for a sleepy day.

Last week was pretty quiet, lots of snow squalls around here, while other places got buried. Had my usual week of work at the Library and Sprawl. Busy days, and fun evenings with friends.

We’re wrapping up the first half of our adventure on Tuesdays and looking at the myriad of possibilities to come next. We’ll be deciding this week, hopefully, if everyone is able to make it out. More skating to come this Saturday, though my hip is still not impressed with the last lesson.

Finished Blood Rites by Jim Butcher and listened to Wizard of Earthsea by LeGuin, and made some good progress into The Black Prism by Brent Weeks. Interesting use of the light spectrum for magic.

It’s been a fairly quiet week. Helped with more flood clean-up. Got a bit further in our D&D game. And my Sunday shift at MLK. I also went skating yesterday, and thanks to trying to learn turn-stops, my legs are super angry at me. But other than a lot of accidental splits turn falls, it went pretty well.

Another step on the job trail. Fingers keeping crossed. Was hoping to go to a convention next weekend, but looks like it’s not happening, unless I just go for part of a day. But it’s a long drive.

Most of the way through Blood Rites. Added a few more things to my Want to Read list. But everything’s on Waitlist.
