Jupiter

Storm blows in

Awakened this morning at 2:30 am to a loud crack of thunder, I got up and watched the two hour thunderstorm march across the sky. Cool...in more ways than one! Giant flashes of lightning with a count to one thousand fourteen and still no thunder when the next flash goes off. Am I going deaf? One thousand two and a loud rumble. What happened to the other one?
Hopefully, this thunderstorm broke the heat wave.

I'm supposed to be making banana bread today but I may just peel them and stick them in the freezer to make another day! I'm such a lazy bum this week! :)
Books

June books

Not since 2004 when I moved and had eye surgery have I averaged less than triple digit pages per day...until now. Only 7 books read in June with a 98 page per day average. Well, it was close to triple digits. :D

Manda Scott The Crystal Skull Thriller based on the Mayan calendar ending in 2012. Interesting book.
Yxta Maya Murray The Queen Jade Archeology mystery. Bookstore owner heads for Guatamala in search of her mother who disappeared during a hurricane while searching for the legendary Mayan Queen Jade. Good book, looking for #2.
Jo Dereske Index to Murder The 11th book in librarian Helma Zukas mystery series. Good book.
David Weber & Steve White In Death Ground The 2nd book in the Starfire science fiction series. Good book.
Alice Kimberly The Ghost and the Femme Fatale The 4th book in the Haunted Bookshop mystery series. Good book.
Nevada Barr Winter Study The 14th book in Park Ranger Anna Pigeon series. Better than the last two were.
Karen Miller The Awakened Mage The last book in the Kingmaker, Kingbreaker duology. The first one was good, this one I didn't care for.
