So what’s new you ask? Eh. Same old, same old.
The Play: 6 more days to our first performance. Eeeek. Ticket sales are coming along, finances are fine I think, we seem to have all of the props, furniture, costumes, etc. The sets are built and painted (need to be assembled on site), sound effects need some work yet, but we’re getting close. Some days my stress level is through the roof, some days not so much. Some days my daughter and I are at each other’s throats, some days we commiserate together. We will survive. :-) Monday we are going to be a local live talk program on cable TV. Our first time so hopefully it will go well and promote some ticket sales.
Work: Thankfully I do NOT have to go to Quebec City next week. Things seem to be coming along with that program though and we have good people in charge in each city who will make it work.
Writing: Ummmm. Yeah. That. No comment.
Reading: I have actually been reading a lot of shorts. I am trying to get ahead because next week I’ll be useless likely. I have read a few other longer (novella) books though this past week. You’d think I have no time, but burying your head in the sand (or a book) and pretending all that other stuff doesn’t exist is a legit coping strategy I say.
Lessons for Lewis (The Larson Legacy #2) by Amber Kell. I haven’t reviewed this one either. It was again, what I expected, although better than some I’ve read lately. I liked werewolf Lewis and vampire John. I was a bit confused by the antagonist who seemed to flip-flop between the bag guy and decent purpose, but it was a decent read.
Shane’s Inner Anger (Lost Shifters #20) by Stephani Hecht. Okay, Shane is my favourite because who doesn’t love a psychopath with a heart of gold. When he goes after his mate’s former captor, who now has his daughter, you know all hell is going to break loose and a 7 year old fighting back to back with her daddies is… Okay, it was kind of sweet, and I’m sick. But I love Shane.
Christmas: All I can say is thank the Baby Jeebus for on-line shopping. Also I really only buy for my daughter and a few small things here and there. I am totally not focused on it though. We have no tree or decorating done. We would usually do our tree next weekend but that is going to be nutso, so I guess early the following week. Apparently there is a Christmas gathering at my house on the 22nd, so that means I actually have to have things fixed up and ready before then. Surprise, mom!
That is it here. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and here is a little eye candy for good measure.
