In which we have conquered Monday and are moving on to Tuesday

So, today.

Appointments were kept, groceries were taken on, wreathes also; vegetables were chopped and put into the freezer; cats were beguiled with the flying mouse; bills were paid, and banking was done.

Had a dash of Incredible Luck at the grocery store’s book bin.  Somebody had thrown in six brand-new Peter Wimsey novels (Clouds of Witnesses, Unnatural Death, the Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club, Strong Poison, Five Red Herrings, Gaudy Night, for those keeping score at home), which I snatched up for a buck-a-book donation.  These will replace the Wimsey books winnowed from Baltimore-area used bookstores back in the mid-and-late-1980s, which are pretty much falling apart.  In fact, I believe that one title — Have His Carcasse — may have already met that fate, falling apart in a time where Sayers was out of print.

Now, of course, I have a Problem Before Me.  Do I buy brand-new replacement copies of the other books in the set (and replace …Carcasse)?  Or is that just too. . .too?

First World Problems.

In other news, we receive advance word that OVO will be at the Bangor Cross Center June 2-5, 2016.  I was rushing off to buy tickets when Steve mentioned that we not be home from BaltiCon yet.  Right.  Next year, we have some traveling inked in.  Must remember that.

No words today, what with one thing and another thing.  Tomorrow, I have an early appointment with the HR Nurse for the hospital, and possibly a visit to the vampyres, after which I have nothing but writing on the calendar for the rest of the week.

Hope everyone has had a pleasant beginning to the week.

  1. Gaudy Night is one of my all-time favorite books! And do the cats use their tower there in the corner? Just curious. Pictures mostly capture them on the floor or other perches.

  2. 6 Brand New Sayers for $1 Each? You SCORED.
    If it were me, I’d wait to replace the others and see if more turn up in that bin.

    Good luck with the HR Nurse.

  3. They do make use of the sky castle. The toppest and next-toppest platform offer an alternative view of the bird feeding station on the porch, and Trooper and Sprite are bird watchers. Belle tends to use the basement cubes, when she wants a little alone time while still Keeping an Eye on us.
