This current project is turning my hair grey. (Well, greyer.) I’m still enmeshed in it, but the end is finally in sight. Which means I might have a little time for other things by the end of the week.
My thoughts are with all the people in the path of Hurricane Ida, and in the path of the fires out West. May they be safe through storm, wind, rain, flood, and fire, and their aftermath.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished The Duchess War (Courtney Milan) for this weekend’s COYER Book Club. I liked it so much that I promptly bought most of the rest of the series! I also read The Family You Make (Jill Shalvis; ARC) and The Solstice Countdown (Lisa Shearin; review copy.) I started Pirate King (Laurie R. King) for my Mary Russell series reread, but it’s my least favorite of the books, and I’m having a hard time sticking with it. I also started Thursday’s Child by Noel Streatfeild (review copy), which I probably would have loved as a child.
Listening to: A Grave Matter by Anna Lee Huber, narrated by Heather Wilds.
Watching: We’re rewatching Planet Earth (a documentary series), because I needed something undemanding and easy to stop in mid-episode, so I could get back to work after dinner.
