We had a friend come over this afternoon and we played Forbidden Desert finally! It is SO much fun! Then the guys played Shadowrun: Crossfire. Each time the game mechanism happened I wanted to here CROSSFIIIIRRRREEE.
I started to read the next one for me in the Sister Fidelma series by Peter Tremayne. I am on Valley of the Shadow. I have read some of these out of order but I wanted to get the full expereince so I’ve started to read them in order. I really love these – they are fascinating. I do not know much about ye olden Ireland so I really love this. The author is very detail oriented so you’re very much learning about the time as the books progress. The all knowing but rather heartless Wiki says this:
The Sister Fidelma mysteries are a series of historical mystery novels and short stories by Peter Tremayne (pseudonym of Peter Berresford Ellis) about a fictional detective who is the eponymous heroine of a series. Fidelma is both a lawyer (Irish dalaigh), and Celtic nun (Ellis uses the French term “réligieuse”).
Fidelma usually solves crimes in company with her partner (and eventually husband) Brother Eadulf, a Saxon monk (Ellis uses the French term “réligieux”). Though Eadulf has often been compared to Sherlock Holmes’s well-meaning but somewhat obtuse Dr. Watson, he usually proves essential to solving the mystery at hand (if only in a small way). A true companion, he has saved Fidelma’s life more than once.
The Sister Fidelma stories are set in the middle of the 7th century, mainly in Ireland. They are historical whodunits in the literary tradition of Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose, the Brother Cadfael mysteries by Ellis Peters, and the Judge Dee by Robert van Gulik (inspired by Gong’an fiction and by the official of the Chinese Tang Dynasty Di Renjie) . Peter Tremayne’s novels are extremely complex and usually feature the interaction of several subplots involving political intrigue, personal relationships, religious conflict, or characters’ desires for personal or monetary gain.

I made some BBQ baked tofu tonight with a side of cajun potatoes and roasted corn. I also made a side salad with my new favorite mix – kale broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, radicchio, dried cranberries and peptias. It’s amazingly delicious. I also prepped salmon patties and made up a shrimp cocktail for lunches for the week. I made my bento for tomorrow so when my alarm goes off at 4:15 am it will be a little nicer!
