Saturday 25 June 2011
Saturday - Feeling better. I tried not taking the DayQuil and had a miserable morning, so I started taking it again. A simple trip to the store to pick up some staples - soup, bread, etc., left me exhausted. Still, I'm better than I was. On the mend I guess.

Book #68 was The Lost Fleet #6:Victorious. Black Jack finally defeats the evil Syndics, but discovers a sinister Alien Presence behind his human enemies...stay tuned for sequels!!!

Friday 24 June 2011
Friday -  I'm trying to remember the last time I had a stomach ache as part of a flu. As a child? Weird. I've actually been woken up from a dead sleep the last couple of nights by the stomach pains.

Book #67 was The Lost Fleet #5:Relentless.

A friend dropped off some frozen stuff - Popsicles and such. Very nice, thanks S!

Thursday 23 June 2011

Thursday - DayQuil and soup, that's what I live on. Working my way through Season 2 of Veronica Mars, and Jack Campbell's space opera.

Book #66 was The Lost Fleet #4:Valiant,

Wednesday 22 June 2011

Wednesday  - Yeah, it's the flu. Punishment for not going North I guess.

Book #64 was The Lost Fleet #2: Fearless, and #65 was The Lost Fleet #3:Courageous, both by Jack Campbell. What can I say? Home sick with almost zero attention span...

My friend Tim had surgery for a torn bicep muscle. He says it went well and that he is home with "happy pills". Yay!

Tuesday 21 June 2011

Tuesday - Not feeling well, coming down with something :-(

Read some bad SF; Book #63 being The Lost Fleet #1: Dauntless, by Jack Campbell. Escapist space opera, which is all I feel up too.

I also finished Veronica Mars, Season 1, on Netflix. Great ending, I did not see that coming. VM isn't as good as Buffy, more on a par with Angel. When it's good it's good, but sometimes the acting is a bit rough.

Monday 20 June 2011

Monday - Messing around in the yard, trying to get things more into shape. The more I do, the more I see that needs to be done. Essentially the place has been sitting unmaintained for several years and the time has come to pay the piper.

Sunday 19 June 2011

Sunday - Not much to say. Just doing housework, for the most part.

My brother emailed me, said he'd started on removing some of the old retaining walls - I feel bad about not going up, but perhaps I can go after July 4th.
