Another satisfying mystery in the Maisie Dobbs series. I like how respectfully Maisie treats her fellow WWI vets.

#TeamSlaughter #ScaryScavengerHunt Is part of a series

#TeamSlaughter I was outside doing my audio gardening when something strange and wet started falling from the sky. I tried to stick it out, but the mysterious wet stuff kept falling, so my only choice was to come inside and read in bed with tea and chocolate. 🤷‍♀️

Hi #BFCr4 peeps. Hope you all had a good week. Here‘s my progress:
✅Walk 100,000 steps - should be there by the end of the day
✅Did yoga and stretching once
✅Listened to 1 book while active (The Woman in the Window)
✅Said no to working this weekend and said yes to watching baseball with my son, and building forts and woods walks with my daughter
❌Not so great with the bone health diet. Ate many veggies, but also much pie

TheAromaofBooks Well, if you're going to indulge, pie is a good way to go. :-D My weakness this week was ice cream as always! 2d
wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌 A fantastic first week! And it's hard not to eat pie this time of year. 1d

Beautiful sunrise here in Virginia this morning @Clwojick but I wish we would get some rain. It‘s been very dry, and I wouldn‘t mind a day inside with my books. #teamslaughter

jessinikkip It has been super dry here lately. Our yard is nothing but dust at this point. I keep hoping for a really good storm. Just one to get some water back in the ground. 2d

This was a fun and twisty book to read in October. I‘m a fan of books that feature dysfunctional people trapped in a country house, and I thought the tarot cards were a nice touch.

This book took the unreliable narrator thing to the extreme. I liked it, but by the end I was very ready for something with a reliable narrator.

#scarathlon #teamslaughter #scaryscavengerhunt book where someone dies (or does she???)

#BFC friends, are the darker nights giving you trouble too? It‘s been a struggle to get out before it gets dark these days, and I know it‘s going to get worse.

I made my goal today, but my last 100 steps were from pacing in my bedroom.

BookNerd9906 Great job meeting your goal. 👏👏👏 This time of year is when I have to walk at lunch and go to the gym to get my steps in. 1w
wanderinglynn Way to stick with it! 🙌🏻 1w
MatchlessMarie Last time I had a distance goal for "intentional workouts" but that was kind of difficult so I switched to a steps goal this time because sometimes it's hard to be intentional when steps around the house do just as well ? 7d
Bookwormjillk Thanks @wanderinglynn @BookNerd9906 maybe it is time to look into a gym membership. @MatchlessMarie me too! Also some days I spend 8 hours running around my office like a crazy person so I want to get credit for that! 7d

Hey Group C I was looking at possible choices for the next round of LMPBC. Any strong feelings about these four books?

TheAromaofBooks OOoo I'm with @lele1432 - The Call of the Wild does sound good, and I haven't read it since maybe 7th grade. The Secret Garden is an old favorite that I always love to reread as well. I'll try to post my options tomorrow!!! 1w
