REBOOT REBOOT

I am actually keeping my summertime resolution to either ride a bike or walk with my family every evening after dinner. It’s a strange feeling keeping a resolution longer than two days. I really don’t know what to make of it. I am even more confused by this than I am of the show Legion. Oh..wait. This might be a side effect of watching the show. My brain is so scrambled up from Legion, it did a full reboot. Just like when my cell phone starts acting buggy, I have to turn it off all the way and then turn it back on. I had to do that with my brain when I started the second season of Legion at the beginning of summer. Interesting. I wonder what other side effects have occurred. I’m going to look in the refrigerator to see what happens.

From a #1 bestselling author:
A fresh and funny romantic mystery series about a witty, down-to-earth heroine with a job you’ve never seen before…

Being an undercover poison taster for the rich and famous might sound glamorous, but for Isobel Avery it means stomaching bad clients and even worse coffee.

The one side of the job that lives up to expectations is the money. Which is just as well for Izzy, since she needs an awful lot of it. Who knew when she made a lifelong commitment to a man that it would be one year living with him and the rest of her life paying for it?

But even her scoundrel ex-husband doesn’t look so bad compared to her new client. He’s competent, condescending, and annoyingly attractive, and Izzy doesn’t know whether to sleep with him or poison him herself. Throw in a loan shark, a nosy neighbor, and a murder attempt, and Izzy will have her work cut out for her.

Silence Is Golden

You know when you repeatedly look in the refrigerator looking for something good to eat, and each time you look there is nothing?  You look anyway though, right? Even though it’s only been five minutes. You still look knowing nothing has changed. Call it optimism, call it crazy, call it hoping for a miracle. Well, that’s exactly what happened this morning. A miracle. I was making breakfast for hubby (I do this as a compromise, so I don’t have to make dinner) and I was fetching another ingredient from the fridge. I had already been in the fridge three or four times, so I wasn’t really expecting anything new. I didn’t even have any hope for something new. It was when I pushed the lettuce aside that I saw it. A little creme brulee. My mother in law had given us four or five of these individual desserts two weeks ago and one got lost behind the lettuce. Either that, or I hid it back there and forgot about it. That’s a definite possibility. I froze. Hubby was right behind me, and if I gave any indication that I found it, I would have to share. For once in my life I didn’t scream. Today, silence is golden.
