Lucila stopped by to see if it was okay if she came at 4:30pm tomorrow instead of 11am and of course that was fine with me! Her son is out of school and he thinks my house is boring (reasonably) and her husband will be home by then to care for him. I would have happily taken an afternoon time to begin with!
Last night's Masterpiece Theatre Mystery was the second episode of Inspector Lewis and a character mentioned reading Arthur C. Clarke. This had to have been done before he died, so not a hommage, just a word to the wise. But a woman said "Yes, he was in prison, but he's out now. He's a rogue, a lad, but he's my bit of a lad!" Would one of my UKan readers please define that version of lad? I'm guessing not entirely lawful? I didn't figure out the murderer until about halfway through, which is very good. L&O:CI and In Plain Sight both gave away the criminal near the beginning.
I'm throwing a baby shower for the first time in decades. Fortunately, since it's in conjunction with bookgroup next month, it's not too complicated. I sent email to the folks in the group, gave them the registry URL (and told them that of course, they can give whatever they want) and told them we'd just have cake and presents, since we still want to talk about the book. The two are having a baby almost exactly nine months from getting married, but we won't joke about fertility. I hope. I'm actually thinking of cupcakes which don't require plates and forks. I ordered a couple of small things from the registry, but I also ordered yarn for a blankie. I expect to finish my BFAC project tonight.
