This holiday weekend everyone in our family is doing some of what they need to do and some of what they love best.
I'm cleaning house (definitely not what I love best), writing (almost done with the first edit of my second Southern noir), and reading.
To the right is the novel I'm currently reading. I've read two of Ms. Steven's Vanessa Michael Monroe thrillers and had to read the book that started it all. So far, I'm loving it. Next up, The Martian by Andy Weir.
One of my sons is studying (hopefully) and playing Counter-Strike.
The other son is studying quantitative analysis. And during his study break, he decided to make a tiki torch. (Chemistry majors frequently feel the urge to make things burn or explode.) See below.
Kind of looks like a Molotov cocktail.
