Good morning! It’s time to chat about Hump Day and enjoy the places where we love to curl up with our books, etc. Above, I rearranged some things on my little table in my office, the one below my family wall of photos: in addition to the Coca Cola lamp and the Minnie Mouse phone, I now have a cute mug that says “Bee Happy,” which I’ve had for a while, but it was previously in my bedroom. And next to the phone is the new clock I ordered this week. I did that after realizing I have NO CLOCKS in this room, since the one I had fell from the wall and broke.
I think the ghosts in my house were playing pranks on me!
Anyway, I love its colors. It is a small clock, but it serves its purpose. Here’s a close-up, from the product page:
I read until late last night…in my bedroom, where I could curl up with fluffy pillows. I am reading Lie to Me, by J. T. Ellison, and I’m loving it. My review will go up later today.
My TV watching last night was This Is Us, which I really love, although sometimes I find the mother, portrayed by Mandy Moore, really annoying! Especially in the episodes with her grown children. She seems fake. I don’t like Miguel, the guy she married after Jack, either. Jack and Miguel were best friends. It seems…wrong, somehow. The kids seem to have problems with him, too. I am curious about what will unfold.
I’ve also been watching several episodes of The Menendez Murders. I love that Edie Falco is portraying Leslie Abramson, the boys’ attorney. She has a rather harsh demeanor, but it works in this role, IMO.
Okay…enough said. Back to reading.
After yesterday’s Release Day, I didn’t end up downloading any of the other books released yesterday. Not yet, anyway. Seven Days of Us was one of them, and it’s on my list…but the reviews were so mixed. I will wait a while.
I might have to read it, though. I love family dysfunction…in a movie or book. Not in real life. Maybe my reluctance to dig into this one is how close to home the themes feel to me. My own family, and the in-laws I accrued over the years, were reminders of all that can be annoying about family. LOL.
So…what does Hump Day bring to you? Books, adventures, etc.?
