It’s been warmer this past week. But I saw that it’s going to be freezing in a couple of days.
Can you believe I thought Thanksgiving was well over a week away?
I was reading a blog friend’s post yesterday and she mentioned Thanksgiving being this week. And I thought: no, isn’t it a week after?
Then I looked and of course I was wrong.
I think of Thanksgiving being the week of Kendra’s birthday (28th) because I had her on Thanksgiving day. But it’s earlier this year.
For Kasi’s 45th birthday this past week, I ordered chocolates and a Hickory Farm’s sampler for her.
She works at home, so I knew this would be a fast way to snack through the day. Kasi told me that she and Andrew have been eating the chocolates, so I’m glad they’ve enjoyed them.
When the girls were at home I made all kinds of candy during the holiday season. But I haven’t done that in years.
Yesterday when Greg came through the patio door Boomer followed him in.
Boomer knows where I keep his favorite soft treats.
Greg went to the jar to give them to him. Boomer gets two treats I told him. So Boomer gobbled up his goodies and Greg let him out to go find John.
It’s kind of like a zoo around here with Kinzi coming in for the small dog treats and Boomer getting the bigger ones!
Ivy barely pays any attention to them. She knows she’s the queen.
And of course here’s a photo I took of Ivy. She sure has funny ways of sleeping on the couch. It looks uncomfortable to me.
What I Watched:
If you can watch “Payback” I think you might like it. That is if you like fast-paced thrillers. I streamed the whole last week.
And then I watched Halifax: Retribution. It is about Jane Halifax, female forensic psychologist who is a Professor of Forensic Psychiatry at Melbourne University.
The police in Melbourne get her involved in their looking for a sniper.
The shooter seems to have no rhyme or reason behind who or where he starts shooting. So they bring her in to try to figure out his next moves.
What I’m Reading:
I’ve begun reading “The Boys From Biloxi” by John Grisham. I always find his story lines compelling.
John Grisham returns to Mississippi with the riveting story of two sons of immigrant families who grow up as friends, but ultimately find themselves on opposite sides of the law.
For most of the last hundred years, Biloxi was known for its beaches, resorts, and seafood industry. But it had a darker side. It was also notorious for corruption and vice, everything from gambling, prostitution, bootleg liquor, and drugs to contract killings.
The vice was controlled by small cabal of mobsters, many of them rumored to be members of the Dixie Mafia.
Keith Rudy and Hugh Malco grew up in Biloxi in the sixties and were childhood friends, as well as Little League all-stars. But as teenagers, their lives took them in different directions.
Keith’s father became a legendary prosecutor, determined to “clean up the Coast.” Hugh’s father became the “Boss” of Biloxi’s criminal underground. Keith went to law school and followed in his father’s footsteps.
