Yes, indeed, it is Monday. It started out with a brisk wind but lots of sunshine. It has now dissolved into a strong, cold wind and absolutely no sunshine -- just lots of clouds. I am glad I did my grocery shopping early so I can just close myself up and cook/read/play video games -- yes, I play video games. Supposed to keep the mind alert -- whatever.
Anyway, back to what I am reading. I am currently reading the next title in my Aunt Dimity queue -- "Aunt Dimity and the Next of Kin". I am about half way done and there is no "next of kin" surfacing as of yet. I am on several mystery series challenges and a "finish the series" challenge -- at this rate, that one is going to be a dismal disappointment.
However, after looking at my daily blog reads, I see where JLSHall (http://jlshall.blogspot.com) has listed a current finish -- "The Red House Mystery" by A. A. Milne. It looks good and so I purchased a copy for my e-reader. I seem to read so much faster on an e-reader which aggravates me because I really, really like books. However, I guess it is ok since I have pretty much run out of room for books and would prefer to frequent the library anyway -- or the used book store or the e-reader offerings. So, I think that will be my next read when I finish the Aunt Dimity book.
So, off to make some more scones. Some chocolate chip ones without nuts and some apricot walnut ones for Hubs. He loves apricots and these scones have very little sugar in them -- enough -- but not enough that it annoys his diabetes -- he can actually eat them. So....maybe there will be photos later along with my DIY Restaurant Dinner #3.
