I really did start this post on Sunday, but you know how that goes sometimes.

Thanks to Deb at Readerbuzz for hosting The Sunday Salon. Stop over there or at the Facebook Group to participate.

Week’s Highlight:

I think the week’s highlight for me was the Pirates baseball game we went to. Even though the Pirates are doing terrible, I still had fun at the game.

Reading:

Dewey’s 24 Hour Reverse Readathon starts on Friday at 8:oo p.m. I love the reverse readathon, so of course I’m joining in, but we’re having a cookout on Saturday, so won’t be reading the whole 24 hours.

This week’s posts:

Playing:

We played The Mind a couple of times recently.

It’s a deck with cards 1-100, and during the game you try to complete a certain number of levels depending on the number of players. In a level, each player receives a hand of cards equal to the number of the level: one card in level 1, two cards in level 2, etc. Collectively you must play these cards into the center of the table on a single discard pile in ascending order but you cannot communicate with one another in any way as to which cards you hold. You simply stare into one another’s eyes, and when you feel the time is right, you play your lowest card. If no one holds a card lower than what you played, great, the game continues! If someone did, all players discard face up all cards lower than what you played, and you lose one life.

It’s fun, but really tough. In a four-player game, your goal is 8 levels and in a three-player game it’s 10, but I don’t think we’ve gotten past level 5 at all.

Watching:

We finally watched Murder Mystery on Netflix. I thought it was cute and silly and fun. Of course, I’m always up for a cheesy mystery. I don’t think David loved it.

Looking forward to:

My brother and his family are coming down next weekend, so it’ll be fun to hang out with them.

A Question:

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter? Which do you use? Which do you hate? Which do you love? Which other social media outlet do you really like? I’m not talking about book specific ones, just in general.

  1. I’m not a huge baseball fan but do love to go to games. It’s much more fun in person.

    I am on FB but don’t really use it. I’m sporadic about my IG use. I use Twitter almost daily, but not like I used to.

    Enjoy your brother’s visit.
