Almost the Weekend

Almost the weekend. Yep, after a week of illness, I am so ready for it to be over and go do something fun. We are still coughing and still just trying to breathe and not be so completely worn out. We are slowly getting better and after a week, we just want to do something fun. I did finally finish reading Tess Gerritsen's, "The Surgeon." I love the show "Rizzoli and Isles" and I could definitely see some elements of the book in the tv show, but then given how shows and movies change books to make them something they can show on tv or in theatres, I can see it. It was a pretty good book. I could so empathize with Rizzoli in the book and the difference of her brothers in the book vs tv show was evident. I am looking forward to reading, "The Apprentice," also by Tess Gerritsen. I also am reading "All the Light We Cannot See," by Doerr. It is a really big book. I borrowed it from the library and it was a 7 day loan. I was not able to finish it in time, but I was able to get it for my Kindle. I now have 2 weeks to finish reading it.

I originally sat down earlier, and was going to go through my emails, but I ended up looking through my books on Goodreads, to see which book in the bookseller's mysteries comes 1st, which book in the Rizzoli and Isles books came 2nd and just to find out where I had to stop in the actual book copy of the Doerr book. Then I started doing other things. I won't work on this for very long as I want to get Part 1 of the Groovyghan CAL. I was probably going to get it finished before Part 2 came out, but then the illness won. Part 2 came out last night, but it is only 2 parts and it will be 2 weeks before Part 3 comes out. I know that there are people who are complaining that they are coming out too slow and would like new portions every week instead. It is a really popular CAL and people from all over the world are participating. It is fun to see what their color combinations are and how they are connecting the pieces.

Tonight my goal on the email is to get below 1800. Tomorrow, I will try to get to about 1750. But a little at a time. It will get finished.
