Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)


Read a bit...look at the other post.

Rested a little.

Watched a couple episodes of Enterprise.

Cleaned out some overgrowth in the front yard.

Was shown great love by my spouse bringing home Portillo's from Buena Park. Yum.

Had a long talk on the phone with my youngest sister, back from her trip to Paris.

A good, relaxing day, even with the yardwork.

Now, it's a hospital week, and today I MUST get the nursing homes all finished.

In the last twenty hours or so, I finished reading two books.

First was Medicus, but Ruth Downie, which is a mystery set in the Roman Empire, on its northern edge...Britain in the beginning of Hadrian's rule. The protagonist is a doctor with the XX Legion, which makes the whole story a bit more riveting. He is well-defined, and believable, and he's thrown into investigating a series of murders. It's the first book of a series, so I'll be on the lookout for more.

The second was Osprey New Vanguard #143: US Cruisers 1883 – 1904: The Birth of the Steel Navy, which deals with the fleet that won the Spanish-American War. Mostly, it's tables of details about the various classes. There are bits and pieces of information, but I've enjoyed other Ospreys more than this one.
