Sunday Soup (?) ... but on a Monday

... because I forgot to post this yesterday. The benefit of posting the Sunday Soup post today, of course, is that I came home to find that I had received some books that I had ordered. Yay.

 

Anyway, we were supposed to get the remnants of hurricane Ophelia today. While it was very wet and incredibly dark all day (it was pitch black at around 2:30pm!), there was no wind. Thank goodness! I mean, it was unlikely that the predicted winds would hit this part any harder than the regular stiff breeze we get, but still... Unfortunately, it appears Ireland has seen some storm damage.

 

This whole topic of tropical storms and all gave me an appetite for chili yesterday. That is, veggie chili in my case, which for some reason I wanted to have in soft tortilla shells, and which made enough to have left over chili tonight (because it tastes even better on the second day).

 

 

In case you were wondering about the lack od cheese, there is some mozzarella at the bottom. 

 

The Muriel Spark book, which you can't really see, is Spark's Satire, which contains three novellas: RobinsonThe Abbess of Crewe, and Aiding and Abetting

 

Hope your Monday was not too bad either. ;D

Monday Night Goals

As the evenings are getting dark again, there's nothing better than tea, book, and some awesome soundtrack.

The Pursuit of Happiness: a novel by - 3052 Alan Trustman

The Pursuit of Happiness by Alan Trustman
Was interested in reading this story because of the gang affiliation around Boston area. Have known many over the years and have heard a lot of stories of their life.
Find them interesting, I'm not sure why. This one starts out with a man just enjoying his drink and food when a Dominican gang hold up the joint but the man does not let them get away with it.
Not any of the 7. Then we find Dick Berton in KY various different routes and means of transportation. Love learning about his next assignment where he's explaining to the women who's father owns the yacht about the Boston gangs and familiar names to me.
This mission involves a shark, in a tank in the Pacific ocean. They teach him about sharks for several weeks as they all go out into the cages themselves. This also gives me time to understand and learn. Love hearing of the math involved in everything and easy explanations of what some of the terms mean.
I never knew what scuba meant either. Liked hearing of all the poisonous sea life.
Sort of reminds me of Frank, the transporter as he has to make up his own mind with what he has when things don't go according to plan...
Love all the action and adventure, travel and learning new things and adult romance and sex scenes. Love that the author doesn't take 500 pages to tell this story as others would've done. Can't wait to read more from this author.
Received a review copy via publicist and this is my honest review.

MIA... Update

We went exploring yesterday and found ourselves on a bus to the north coast - Port de Pollenca to be exact. 

 

We had planned the trip but it was not until we got there that it occurred to me that there is an Agatha Christie story called Problem at Pollensa Bay. As it turns out, the story is set in Port de Pollenca (tho, Dame Agatha just calls it Pollensa) and it was great fun reading this short Parker Pyne story on location.

 

Unlike, Mr. Parker Pyne, we had great weather. No mist in sight.
