Spring has arrived. My need for Claritin makes that abundantly clear. Nevertheless I’m enjoying the sunshine. Despite the chilly mornings the afternoons have been beautiful. I definitely had one morning this week that would have been better if I’d worn a warmer jacket and gloves but it wasn't raining so I didn't mind getting off the train a few stops early and walking the rest of the way to the office.
Yesterday I went out for an 11 mile trek (mostly walking with a little jogging). I managed to do the 11 miles in the same time I did 10 the week before. I’m lucky to have a variety of walking paths that is even better this year. Thanks to a great Parks & Rec. district I've got new routes and paths to change up my walks and keep them from getting boring.
|OK we will|
English style golden ale with very light bitterness, brewed with lemon peel and then cold conditioned on Townshend’s Earl Grey tea leaves.
|Plenty of tap to choose from|
As for reading, I’m winding down my re-read of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. It’s still one of my favorite books despite the fact that the overwriting is more evident with every re-read. Nevertheless I’m enjoying it all over again and looking forward to the TV show.
The long walk yesterday meant I made some progress in my audiobook. The Tomb of the Golden Bird is the final book in the Amelia Peabody series. The discovery of King Tut’s tomb is a major part of this book and it’s clear that the author had issues with Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon. I think I need to hunt up some non-fiction about them.
In graphic novels, I finished FBP: The Federal Bureau of Physics Vol. 1: Paradigm Shift. I enjoyed this one. The story is a cop story but in a world where Physics is broken the laws they’re enforcing are the laws of gravity and physics. It’s a combination of science fiction and crime fiction that I enjoyed enough to be putting future issues on my wishlist.
My new graphic novel is the first in the Jack of Fables spin offs from the main Fables series. I've heard enough mixed reviews of the Jack books to have reduced expectations but so far I don’t mind it and I know it loops back into the main Fables story soon.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!!
