1. Fried mush. It something my Dad loved and I've liked since I was little. Second favorite and what I eat most often is cinnamon toast.
2. 🤔 Everything is pretty plain around northern Indiana.
3. I usually concentrate on what I'm eating. I prefer reading while snacking!
4. A good tasting lactose-free ice cream!

Sunraven Wow, we both mentioned fried mush — I‘m not sure I‘ve ever seen two independent mentions of it in one day. 😆 1w
QuietlyLaura @Sunraven A lot of people have never heard of Fried Mush. It‘s so good but I can‘t convince anyone to try it! More for me! 🤤 1w
Sunraven Bonus funny is that my dad is also the one who introduced me to it, when I was a kid. Do you make your own at home? I only ever have it when I go out for breakfast at a certain specific place, and I always forget exactly how good it is until I have it again ... 🥰 1w

I‘ve been enjoying the Lockwood & Co. series on audio. This short story takes place between books 2 and 3. Here we find ourselves following our three intrepid agents as they tackle a powerful ghost at an academy. It was fun to spend a bit more time with the main characters!

This was the second in the Lockwood & Co series. Our trio of teens face an abundance of foes both physical and ghostly as they try to obtain a mysterious mirror that is rumored to be a portal into the hereafter. I really enjoyed this story but the narrator was difficult to follow as all her voices sounded similar.

This was an excellent start to a new cozy mystery series! Jane is manager of Storyton Hall, a grand resort catering to bibliophiles. Hosting a week of Murder and Mayhem turns into more than she bargains for with the untimely demise of a guest! I wish Storyton Hall was a real resort because I would totally go there!

This was an interesting fantasy. A secret library connected to numerous alternate worlds and librarians who venture forth through danger to collect books. I wish the steampunk London setting had been fleshed out more. Not sure I‘ll continue the series.

This was an interesting mash up featuring Sherlock Holmes amidst steampunk Victorian London. Dr. Watson has a mechanical arm, Mycroft is female, and the transport of choice is a motorcycle complete with sidecar. Sherlock investigates the theft of Captain Nemo‘s Nautilus submarine blueprints in this action-packed tale. I zipped right through this enjoyable story.

“Apparently he had never been taught the first defence in the science of provocative questioning: Keep Your Mouth Shut.”
I could have used this advice the other day when a salesman came to my door! I had a front row seat to high-pressure sales tactics. It wasn‘t fun. I should have listened to my introvert tendencies and not answered the door! 😰😑

Kaye I despise door to door salesmen, or worse, the JW groupies with their skirts and sweaters , token kid, and their pamphlets about the world ending. I‘ve gotten good at NOT INTERESTED and shutting the door. Don‘t even give them time to start. Nail them. 2mo
Sweetkokoro I never open my front door unless its, someone I know (family, friends), the mail lady, or I‘m expecting someone. Other than that I‘m not home and not opening my door haha. I need to get one of those no soliciting signs and see if that helps. 2mo

I had high hopes for this choose-your-own-adventure Regency Romance. I didn‘t realize it was a parody of the romance subgenre and that may have been why this book fell flat for me. It did keep me entertained as it had more action in it than I was expecting. Another digital borrow from the library.

An intriguing historical mystery set in Regency England and focusing on a sleuthing couple attending a country house party rife with political intrigue.

Another excellent cozy mystery in the Paws & Claws series by Krista Davis. This one takes place during “Howloween” in the pet-friendly town of Wagtail. The Sugar Maple Inn seems like a superb resort and is now home to the MC, Holly, who helps run things with her grandmother. I really like this series and look forward to the next book.

I've been silent for a few days because I had to let my cat Scratchy go. She was 16 years old and was suffering from arthritis and cancer. She was always such a fiesty little furball and lived life on her own terms. I loved her despite her sharp claws of kitty justice. She would also purr just for me. That's how I want to remember her. She will always be in my heart and I'll love her forever. But I miss her so very much.
