It's Super Bowl Sunday, and now that it's just my husband and me, we don't have Super Bowl parties like we did when our sons lived with us. Our younger son is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, so I'm sure he and his brother will have a party at school.
I'm in the middle of Jacqueline Winspear's third book in the Maisie Dobbs series Pardonable Lies, which I'm reading for bookclubgirl's I'm Mad for MaisieReadalong. I have many of the Maisie books, and this is a good reason to read them all. Maisie is a private investigator/psychologist working in 1930 London, and her journey from maid to wartime nurse on the frontlines in France to investigator is a fascinating one.
Continuing with the British theme, I may start She-Wolves: the Women Who Ruled England Before Elizabeth by Helen Castor, an ARC I received a few weeks. This one is non-fiction, and maybe I will follow it up by viewing season two of The Tudors. I know, I'm far behind on that one.
Lastly, when the game comes on, I'll probably start Lisa Scottoline's book of humorous essays, My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space. She wrote it with her daughter Francesca, and since I'll be missing my boys today, I could use a good laugh. Since they're essays, it will be easy to dip in and out during the game and not miss anything.
As far as snacks, we'll probably order out. I'm thinking Aztec nachos from Cilantro. Blacks beans, cheese, sour cream, jalapenos, maybe chicken. Yumm.
