Weekend Update

Since my last update:
I finished reading Eggsecutive Orders by Julie Hyzy as part of my preparation for the upcoming Cozy Mystery Week (more about that later). I also read The Night Season by Chelsea Cain. Her books are always fast reads for me because I can’t seem to stop reading once I start. It was kind of funny that these two books I finished this week shared a common method of murder because other than that they’re nothing alike.

I started another cozy mystery this week. I’m reading Aunt Dimity: Detective by Nancy Atherton. I’ve got a couple of graphic novels out from the library that I plan to read when I’m done with that.

On audio I’m still listening to The River in the Sky by Elizabeth Peters (narrated by Barbara Rosenblat). Amelia Peabody such a great series for audio. I always enjoy returning to this series.

Cozy Mystery Week:
As I mentioned above there’s a Cozy Mystery Week event coming up soon. Jenn at Jenn’s Bookshelves has announced Cozy Mystery Week for December 1st through the 8th.

Here’s more info from her sign up post

During the first week of December, before the holiday hustle and bustle takes over my life, I will feature my favorite cozy mystery series. Each day I will focus on a favorite series of mine. A fan of cozies yourself? Join me!

I knew Jenn was planning this and have been planning for by getting the next book in a few of my favorite cozy series from the library. If you’re a fan of cozies click on the link or image above to get to Jenn’s sign up post and join the fun.

Other than books and reading:
I made my first batch of crock pot applesauce last week and I can promise you it won’t be my last. I don’t know how I missed hearing about this until now but I’m pretty darn happy with my first effort. I’m going to make another batch today so I can stock up some in the freezer.

The deal I made with The Hubster was that I’d make applesauce if he peeled the apples. This resulted in him making a trip to buy a new kitchen tool.

I think he was attracted to the “medieval torture device” appearance. He’s also in charge of mashed potatoes every Thanksgiving so he plans to use this for that as well as apples. After peeling his first apple with it his reaction was “Oh I’ll get $15 worth of fun out of this”. I’m married to a dork.
