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.
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.
- Haunted House Murder by Leslie Meier, Lee Hollis, and Barbara Ross
- Father Brown: Selected Stories by G. K. Chesterton
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.
