I just got 9th Judgement!! WOOHOO!
I just stacked them on the bookcase in reverse order of publishing. When I saw them all together in our community library, I knew I'd better grab them all so I'd have the best chance of reading the series in order. I'll return them as I finish them.

I'm switching off between reading and working on a new afghan. Darn TV on Saturday stinks, so not getting much afghan done. It's getting chilly here - 54 degrees right now.

I'm still wearing shorts and short sleeve shirt, but I have a long sleeve flannel shirt standing by. As long as the wind isn't right out of the north, I can keep the windows upon a little. I'm trying to get the afghan longer so it will keep my knees warm. I dread having to turn on the heat. The heat uses so much more electricity. If it gets too chilly tomorrow, I'll make a chicken soup just to add heat and make the place smell good. The stove costs next to nothing to run. Yeah, that sounds good. I've got enough biscuit mix to make drop biscuit dumplings. I haven't done that in awhile.

You people and your temperate weather. It's 2C (~36F) here. I've been wearing the winter boots and I have snow tires on the car. As we say around here, "Mon pays, ce n'est pays un pays, c'est l'hiver." (My country isn't a country, it's winter.)

just started a new j.d. robb book. sometimes reading so fast is not a good thing. only one book left out of the eight or so i got from amazon. do have an application to mail for books in the mail. a service by our local library. that should cut down my having to buy them. a friend sells books on e-bay and she brings books to me until they sell.
