[Last Week] [Monday] [Tuesday] [Wednesday] [Thursday] [Friday] [Saturday] [Sunday] [Next Week]

Over the weekend I read the third book in the Bay Tanner series by Kathryn Wall, Perdition House. Like Carolyn Hart, Wall's books are set on an Island off the coast of South Carolina. Except her setting, Hilton Head, is a real island. Bay's husband was murdered by drug lords in the first book of the series when his airplane explodes leaving a severely injured Bay to cope with the loss of her husband. After taking time off from her accounting practice to try and solve his murder, Bay and her retired father, a retired superior court judge, start a small investigation business. In the second book, And, Not a Penny More, she meets a young computer hacker while trying to solve the murder of one of his family members and brings him on board.

In Perdition House, Bay's shirttail cousin, Mercer, calls Bay out of blue one day to beg her to come down and bail her out of jail after being arrested for vagrancy. That same evening after she is released she is arrested again on federal charges stemming from a anti-nuke demonstration in which a security guard is killed. While being transported to a state prison she manages to escape. In the meantime Bay's returns home to find her housekeeper had been savagely attacked. Several days later, when Bay gets an unwelcome visitor, she decides it is time to hunt down Mercer and find out what and/or who she has gotten herself involved with. 

Next up, I need to read the fifth book in the quilting series I have been reading. I also have a couple of review books I need to get read two reserves from the library.

Tonight I did the 5:30 power step class. I plan on working awhile them read and watch the final game of the NCAA tournament.

Not really much in the way of news tonight. I have been to the gym for spinning class. I stopped at the pet and grocery stores on the way home. By the time we put the groceries away it was time to fix dinner so I could make my class.

Other than checking my mail I have no plans to do anything tonight except read and relax. By the time I get home from spinning class it is 7:30.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets got beat badly last night in the final game of the NCAA tournament. I read and watched the game up until half time when they were down by 15 points. I watched part of the second half hoping they would make a come back but they looked even worse. I finally turned it off with about six minutes left to play.

[Last Week] [Monday] [Tuesday] [Wednesday] [Thursday] [Friday] [Saturday] [Sunday] [Next Week]

An absolutely gorgeous day in the Piedmont with temperatures topping out in the high 70's. I took off from work an hour early this afternoon to come home and mow the lawn. Afterward I patched and strawed some bare spots in both the front and back yards. We are supposed to get rain showers tonight and tomorrow and again later on in the week. 

Not much else in the news. I have to get in some work time tonight for a couple of hours and then, of course, playtime with the dogs.

Another busy day. I worked an extra half hour to make up for leaving early yesterday then headed straight for the library from work for Friends meeting at 4:30. I picked up take out Chinese on the way home. By the time we ate and cleaned up the kitchen, fed and walked the dogs, it was going on 7pm.

I need to finish the Friends newsletter and get it ready to drop off at the printers in the morning so I can mail it out on Monday.

For those of you who had today off, I hope you enjoyed yourself. It was just another work day at the Firm for me. It has been a very long and tiring week. The temperatures have remained comfortably warm, high 70's, all week with clear skies. We did not get the promised rain on Thursday. 

It is to be clear tonight. We may try to get in some observing.

Have a great weekend.
