We took Amber back to college today, so we ended up missing most of the Super Bowl, including the halftime show. I don’t really care about the game, but usually watch it anyway.

Week’s Highlight:

I don’t think we really did anything interesting this week. David and Amber went to a hockey game, but I stayed home. The poor dog had an ear infection but is feeling better now.

Reading:

I’m currently in the middle of two vintage mysteries: Left-Handed Death by Richard Hull and Sweet Danger by Margery Allingham. I like Allingham’s Campion; he amuses me.

This week’s posts:

Playing:

We played Vindication Saturday night. It’s a good game and I really like the base game contains so many modules. It gives it a lot of replayability. “Thrown overboard for a life of wretchedness, you wash ashore a hostile island ruins — completely alone with nothing except the breath in your lungs and an undaunted spirit. Through your advanced resource management, area control tactics, and freeform action selection, you’ll add companions to your party, acquire bizarre relics, attain potent character traits, and defeat a host of unusual monsters in the ultimate goal of mastering heroic attributes — and regaining honor.”

Looking forward to:

This is Solo and Ensemble week. I’m accompanying eight band kids. We’ve got practice to days right after work and then the performance day is Saturday.

  1. I bet you are feeling a little melancholy after taking your daughter back to school. I don’t think I’ll ever stop missing having my kids at home, though I must admit it’s also nice to have some peace and quiet.

    I completely missed the Super Bowl. I saw no signs of anyone thinking about it or watching it or talking about it here in Paris.

    I wonder what you will read next, now that you’ve finished Orlando and Becoming.

    I hope you have a lovely week.

    1. We only have the original ticket to ride. I want Ticket to Ride: Rails & Sails because the back has the Great Lakes map. I think Vindication might be a little to old for Gage. It’s probably better for 12+.

    Hearing lots of positive things about Becoming, I look forward to reading your thoughts on it.

    When my head isn’t in a book I do enjoy a good board game and whilst this normally constitutes us playing a word based game (Scrabble or our favourite Dixit) every now and then we will play a game along the lines of Vindication which by the way sounds great.

    1. Scrabble’s my favorite. My husband will play with me, but my daughter really doesn’t like it. Spelling has never been one of her strong suits. She prefers Wordsy, which is word based by a little more forgiving on spelling.
