Loving the Highlander by Janet Chapman. I started reading this series because I really like the Spellbound Falls series by Chapman, there are many of the same characters (there is a disconnect in the timeline. In theory these stories should be at least 20ish years prior to the Spellbound falls series, but the cellphones and GPS's and tablets aren't that old) Not as good as the Spellbound Falls series, but a good lunchtime read for my 30 minute lunches.

I made a holiday lights headband, wore it to work on Saturday, a co-worker told his 12 yo daughter about it (she wears headbands almost every day) she really wanted one - so I gave it to him for her.

So, I bought a bag. Did I know a recipe?? nope. Did I have any clue how to cook them? nope. Did I have a plan? Yes!! I've heard it said that knowing the process of cooking something is better than knowing a recipe, and Miss Measures Nothing here likes that concept!
I had leftover ham from Thanksgiving. So I basically made it sort of like escarole and beans. I heated some olive oil, garlic and hot pepper flakes. The the broccoli leaves in until they started wilting. Added the ham cut into chunks and some herbs de provence, salt and pepper, some of the pasta water. I covered the pot until the leaves became tender, then added a rinsed can of small white beans, and whole grain pasta , a bit more pasta water to bring it all together, finished cooking the pasta and some grated parm, and asiago went on top.

Nicholas, the mythical Atlantean warrior ( you'll never guess who his real father is! ) chooses to settle in 21st century Maine, inadvertently falls for Julia, a recently divorced 30 year old who doesn't want love, just wants to help her sister turn 18 and go off to college. But seriously who wouldn't fall for a gorgeous warrior who has six exotic cats? and a Phantom horse??
To read what really pissed me off at the end is not a plot spoiler but a partial spoiler :

I got this book from the library also, for Curt and I to flip through to see potential stops in our travels. I wrote some of them down - didn't know River Horse had moved.. good to look at before a road trip!
Yes, My Accent is Real by Kunal Nayyar (Raj from The Big Bang Theory)
I really enjoyed reading this book. It's not a typical autobiography, but it does take us through time from the one thing he remembers about England, through India, the Us, The Big Bang Theory. It's basically a bunch of quick little blurbs - a few pages usually about different events through his life. I was voting for it in the Goodreads book contest, but it ended up being second :(

It's been awhile.. Almost 2 years... On and off... But the knitting part of Sleeves is finally done!!! ( Sleeves is like a cross between a shawl and a shrug- meant to be worn over tank tops... And I love tank tops) just have to weave in the ends and block. I should be able to wear it for Thanksgiving!!!!

30 stories. Some were just plain weird, some were so short I didn't have a clue what just happened. I'm not saying the book was bad - but I gave it three stars because it just wasn't my thing. Still love the "look" though.
