I have an election hangover today. My husband was told to prepare for massive firings at the university where he works. The news is grim and I don‘t want to think about it anymore. So I‘m going to read something that‘s guaranteed to be fun.

JacqMac @Buechersuechtling Thank you. We‘re hoping his job is safe. It‘s pretty stressful. I think I better come up with a relaxing evening for him. 13h

Noir: A Novel | Christopher Moore

Mehso-so

This was very old timey feeling noir. But with an alien. It was just ok for me. But it‘s a me problem, not a writer problem. I keep thinking I‘ll like Christopher Moore, but I never really do.

This was a great audiobook. Historical fiction. Lots of suspense. Murder mystery. Body snatching. Gruesome descriptions of medical care in the 1830s. And Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. How did anyone ever survive before hand washing became a thing?

It‘s Halloween! Sam is coming over to get ready to hunt with me! Cass helped us burn pumpkins, and now Dean and I are going to put them in the graveyard. We are full after eating burgers, and are ready to go now! Rowena told us to watch out for the church down the street because it‘s scary with spider webs and broken windows. It‘s the house where Bobby and Karen live! Cont. ⬇️

This book! It got inside my head. It crawled into my dreams. It was creepy and intense. I loved it! Could it have been shorter? Probably. But I can‘t tell you what I would have cut out. So maybe not. Good vs evil. Love vs hate. You can‘t kill evil with violence. The power of forgiveness. “Everyone gets an ending. Whether or not it‘s happy is up to them.”

We always make roasted pumpkin seeds. AKA Witches Fingernails. Did you know you can make them quickly in the microwave? The teens like fast. Lol
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 tsp olive oil
Salt or spices of choice
Mix the seeds and oil and microwave for 5-8 minutes. Stirring after each minute. Until browned and crispy.
