It’s been mostly a working week — and a working weekend. And work is picking up, which is nice. I’m booked through the end of April, with only a brief break in early March.
We have signed up to be on the list for vaccination whenever we are eligible. I hope that will be in the next month or so. If you are eligible for whatever reason, I hope you get your vaccine soon.
We’re expecting between 1 and 6 inches of snow by Tuesday, probably with some rain or ice mixed in. We’ve had a brief dusting once or twice this winter, including on Christmas Day, but nothing substantial.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes by Leonard Goldberg, which I buddy read with Tarissa of In the Bookcase. And I reread two Nora Roberts novels, Northern Lights and Whiskey Beach (reviewed 2016.) I’m still reading Wild Rain by Beverly Jenkins, as a buddy read with Sophia Rose of the Delighted Reader blog. (Click title for Goodreads page or my review.)
Listening to: I don’t have an audiobook at the moment, but I did listen to a couple of podcast episodes: Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me, and Tea and Strumpets.
Watching: Aerial Britain and Aerial New Zealand, plus Stephen Colbert.
Playing: Carcassonne, Merge Magic, DragonVale, Pokemon Go, the NYT daily crossword and some of their other games.
