Monthly Archives: July 2011
Besides the stuff going on in my family, work has been busy (as always), so I’ve been on the go every day.
I’ve mentioned this before, we had a July wedding in our family that was lots and lots of fun.
I also moved to a bigger apartment, and was able to move a lot of it myself–my new apartment is close to my old one, on the same floor, etc. Thankfully, I was given two weeks to move my stuff, so I was able to do a lot before the moving company came on Friday morning. My clothes, books, and other personal items were all in my new apartment when my big furniture was moved over.
I’m so proud that I’ve got the physical stamina to pull off such a feat (I could not have done this a few years ago). Since Friday afternoon, when I turned in the keys to my old apartment, I’ve been a slug, getting caught up on my rest and nursing my aching muscles with exercise, long hot baths, and rest.
I’ve toyed with giving up my Blogger blog, Gran Speaks, for some time. I made Gran Speaks private a few weeks ago, just because I needed NOT to obsess about all things blogging for a bit. I toyed with the notion of just deleting Gran Speaks, but in the end decided I did not want to lose all my posts and comments.
So today I imported Gran Speaks to this blog.
Took me awhile.
Actually, I exported Gran Speaks on the Blogger end, then uploaded the file on WordPress, after several import attempts via the WordPress option failed.
So now I have one blog, and that’s just dandy with me. I will be rebuilding my blogroll on this blog, patience please!
I hope you are all having a wonderful summer!
I’ve read all of the “prey” books by John Sanford–this one is the twenty-first Lucas Davenport novel.
Davenport, an investigator at the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, is on another case, this one a cold case that has haunted him since being a rookie police officer.
Buried Prey, like all of the prey books, is a fast-moving, solid story that did not let me down. If this story has a weak point, the section of the book titled “Then,” which highlights the original case of two missing girls, is a bit too long for my taste.
This book came up on my library hold list at the perfect time–there’s been lots going on in my life these days, all really good stuff, but I’ve been busy and haven’t had a lot of free time!
So Buried Prey did not let me down–I was able to enjoy this book and not have to think too much! I don’t mean this as a criticism of John Sanford.
I love popular fiction because it’s uncomplicated, easy to read, and lots of fun!
Thankfully, John Sanford has contracted to write two more prey books, http://www.johnsandford.org/faq.html.
I’ll read them both!
- Gran watched the Hindi news channel for 10 minutes before realizing it wasn’t PBS.
- The cheese on Gran’s min-meatball sub isn’t melting! Crapola! Oven’s broke! Oops..oven’s not on.
- Gran’s clothes are still wet? Great; now the dryer’s broken? Okay. Forgot to turn the dryer on.
- Gran falls asleep as she writing this post. As she writing this post? As she’s writing this post..oh brother.
