Hump Day Potpourri


Okay…it’s Hump Day again.  And at this midweek point, I like to take inventory.  Sort of.

Like today, over at Story Corner, I’m celebrating another great book I’m waiting for.  And I created a new blog header there today, too.

The book I’m excited about?  Well, it’s He’s Gone, by Deb Caletti.



A woman named Dani wakes up with a headache and discovers that her husband is gone.  What happens next is a twisty-turny kind of journey that should keep me excited as I turn those pages.  I like this part of the description:

Dani searches frantically for a clue as to whether Ian is in fact dead or alive. And, slowly, she unpacks their relationship, holding each moment up to the light: from its intense, adulterous beginning, to the grandeur of their new love, to the difficulties of forever. She examines all the sins she can—and cannot—remember. As the days pass, Dani will plumb the depths of her conscience, turning over and revealing the darkest of her secrets in order to discover the hard truth—about herself, her husband, and their lives together.

The book is coming on 5/14 to Sparky, my new best friend.  Here’s a photo of Sparky:



It’s been a frustrating couple of days.  I’ve been trying to read, blog a bit, and distractions keep interfering.  Like poor Noah is sick with a fever and I’ve been playing nurse.  I don’t think it’s my best role.  But his temperature is down right now…and he ate lunch.  So that’s good.

The book I’m reading today is Messenger of Truth, a Maisie Dobbs book: my first one.  It took me a bit to get into it, but I think the problem was my distractions rather than the book itself.  I’m now starting to connect with the characters.



So how is your Hump Day going?  Making progress in your reading, etc.?




  1. The Deb Calletti book sounds yummy…Maisie Dobbs should be interesting for you…I have to read these in order when I read them….otherwise they are extremely difficult to fall into.


    • Now that I’m a little further along in the book, it’s going much more smoothly; I’m sure my sick grandson and my distraction about it contributed to the slower connecting. Thanks for stopping by, Patty.
