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

Week’s Highlight:

We went to the Beer, Barks & BBQ event supporting our local humane society. It was a fun evening. The food was good, pulled pork and all the sides. They had one of the local breweries’ Oatmeal Stout, which David said was good. There was a bonfire, but they’re weren’t any chairs around it and we didn’t bring our own, which was a little sad. So after we left, we came back to our house and a fire for a little while.

Reading:

I’m still listening to Bleak House. It’s good, but it’s not one of those ones that calls to me all the time.

I read two collections this week. It’s really no surprise that the Father Brown one was the better of the two.

Playing:

We finally got around to playing Mare Nostrum. You’re each an ancient Mediterranean power trying to expand his/her land, build cities and take advantage of trade caravans. So far, David has won twice, in a two-player game and a 5-player game. He won by doing the same thing both times too. I need to figure out how to counteract that.

Looking forward to:

This week is going to be pretty quiet I think. We’re probably going to help David’s parent clean out his grandma’s house on Saturday – I need to buy some gloves.

Survivor starts Wednesday. And David has meetings two evening this week, so maybe I’ll watch a couple Father Brown episodes.

  1. I know some avid Risk players who would enjoy that game, I think. I love how you try out different board games. My family loved board games when we were all young. You just don’t get the same enjoyment out of virtual games.

    I will get around to Bleak House one of these days. I will probably add it to my next Classics Club list. I haven’t read G.K. Chesterton yet either. I have one of his books (nonfiction) on my current CC list.

    I hope you have a lovely week.
