This and that – July 04, 2021

Happy Independence Day to all my American friends, relatives, and fellow bloggers.

It’s a warm one today and has been for a number of days already. The humidity makes it feel like a warm bath out there. The forecast says the heat will be hanging around for several more days and I’m savoring it as much as possible. It sure beats the cold.

My favorite thing about warm is not having to wear layers upon layers.

I like washing my own car and today was the day. I waited for evening and shade for the car and then made sure to accidentally splash a little water my way every once in a while. Lookin’ much better.

Other than that it has been a quiet weekend, too warm to spend much time working in the yard. It was perfect for an afternoon nap yesterday out on the deck. Reading was on the agenda but the eyes just would not stay open.

Actually, this week I have been out and about, off the property, more than I have in many months. Shopping and running errands mostly, catching up on back burner things. The highlight of the weekend shopping spree was two new t-shirts. The first since before covid.

I’m thinking after two years without new clothes, some of my things will need to be retired. Actually truth be known, it’s probably closer to four years since the last new clothes entered my closet. How can you tell shopping is not one of my favorite activities.

I think my last pre-covid purchase was a pair of winter boots with retractable studs for those unexpected slippery places. They have low heels on them too so they have taken over as my go-to winter boots. Haven’t had to use the studs yet though. Thankfully.

It’s time for a late small meal before lights out. Maybe I will settle on a new read as I enjoy a nice warm bowl of oatmeal. I do have a current read that will probably be rushed through. I’m not thrilled about it and can’t decide if I should bother finishing.

I am tempted to check out yesterday’s mystery download.

Amazing, it is still at the bargain price.

Oath of Honor (Blue Justice Book #1)

Police officer Isabelle St. John loves her crazy, loud, law-enforcement family. With three brothers and two sisters, she’s never without someone to hang out with–or fight with. And she knows they’ll be there for her when things get tough. Like when her partner is murdered and she barely escapes with her own life.

Determined to discover exactly what happened, Izzy’s investigation sends her headfirst into a criminal organization, possibly with cops on the payroll–including someone from her own family. With her dead partner’s handsome homicide detective brother Ryan shadowing her every move, Izzy’s head is spinning. How can she secure justice for her partner when doing so could mean sending someone she loves to prison? And how will she guard her heart when the man she’s had a secret crush on for years won’t leave her side?


I hope your weekend was as restful as mine and that you’ve found some good books to read.

Have a great week.
