In real life: I spent more time than I planned on last week, dealing with business-related stuff and other issues. Now I’ve got to catch up on the things I thought I would get to last week, but didn’t. Plus I need to plan and prep for our upcoming vacation.
Tour de Fleece wrapped up last Sunday. It was a fun three weeks, and I’m looking forward to co-captaining our “team” again next year. I didn’t finish any of the three yarns I worked on during the TdF, but I hope to finish at least one of them this coming week.

What I’ve Been Reading/Watching
Reading: After setting aside Heart Legacy (for now) due to discomfort with the emotional abuse experienced by the main character, I continued my reread of Robin D. Owens’s “Celta’s Heartmates” series with a collection of four novellas, Hearts and Swords, followed by book 15, Heart Sight, and another novella collection, Hearts and Stones. I am still savoring Claws and Contrivances by Stephanie Burgis (an ARC from the author.)
And I started reading Indexing Specialties: Cookbooks, since that’s a subject area I haven’t attempted to index yet. I thought that it might be easier than the scholarly indexing that is the bulk of my current work. In some ways, it probably is, but it requires a fair bit of specialized knowledge and can involve equally difficult decisions about how to structure the index and what not to include.
Playing: Wordle, the NYT Spelling Bee, and Pokemon Go.
Watching: We finished up Our Planet and started Our Planet II (both with Richard Attenborough.) We also watched a few more Ready Room episodes related to Strange New Worlds Season 2.
