Spock Strange

and another one gone

I finished The Lumby Lines by Gail Fraser today. It started out a little slow but kept moving along. One of those books that is engrossing while you're reading but can easily put it down and pick it up when you have the time to read again. Set in the small Northwest town of Lumby where everyone knows everyone else, Mark and Pam Walker move from the East Coast to restore an old monastery and turn it into an inn. But not everyone wants to see changes come to their small town and have their own ways to show it. I liked the characters and look forward to reading the next one.

I'm still reading Crusade by David Weber & Steve White amd am also reading Murderers Prefer Blondes by Amanda Matetsky.

Up next is either The Innocent Mage by Karen Miller or The Widow's War by Sally Gunning.
Games

Wii bowling

10 strikes in a row and then I accidently lofted the ball for a spare in the last frame. Total score - 288 out of a perfect 300 game! My highest score yet but still 10 pins shy of Dad's 298. It's too bad I can't count the last 6 strikes from the last 6 frames of the previous game. 16 strikes in a row!! Oh well, I've got a new aiming viewpoint now and I'm planning on getting that perfect score yet! :)

I notice that my last entry was not to the tbr_stack community like it was supposed to be. Anyone else ever do that, post to your journal instead of the community it's meant for?

I got a call from Amber this evening. She says to pack extra food for work, it's going to be another 12 hour day tomorrow with 3rd shift coming in to relieve us and finish up. We've got Saturday off for Memorial Day and then a different day later off in the week. So we're still working 5 days on a holiday week and no 2 days off in a row. :(
