  Linking up with Marg at The Intrepid Reader

November 2023 - Toronto ON
August 2023 - Dawson City Yukon

Saturday was the usual laze around day.

Sunday we met up with my cousin and family for brunch at the Brogue Inn.

Tuesday I did some groceries and John got the winter tires put on the car. I filled three bags for charity, cushions, material, a mirror, shoes, clothes etc. John also got rid of a dozen t-shirts.

Wednesday I met my friend at her retirement home and we had lunch in the Bistro.
I had the east coast platter, shrimp and smoked salmon.

We didn't do much the rest of the week. John took the three bags to Value Village. He also got his wine bottled and picked up groceries.

Saturday spaghetti and home made meatballs

Sunday tomato and bacon sandwiches

Monday curry chicken (clearing out the freezer continues)

Tuesday roast chicken thighs, roasted potatoes and carrots

Wednesday pizza

Thursday chicken wings and fries

Friday steak, sauteed potatoes and mushrooms and chimichurri. 


Fear the Night follows Iraqi war veteran Tess, as she prepares to strike back after a group of home invaders attack during her sister's bachelorette party, and she discovers that they are hellbent on not leaving any witnesses behind.

The Son of No One a young cop is assigned to a precinct in the working class neighborhood where he grew up, and an old secret threatens to destroy his life and his family.

Killshot Carmen Colson and her ironworker husband Wayne are placed in the Federal Witness Protection program after witnessing an "incident". Thinking they are at last safe, they are targeted by an experienced hit man and a psychopathic young upstart killer. The ensuing struggle will test Carmen to the limit.

Kandahar a CIA operative and his translator flee from special forces in Afghanistan after exposing a covert mission.

Silent Hours private detective John Duval, an ex-lieutenant commander in the Royal Navy and Naval Intelligence, finds himself the prime suspect in a police hunt for a sexual killer when three women are brutally murdered.

Billionaire Murders  - this documentary follows the investigation into the deaths of billionaire and generic drug mogul Barry Sherman and his philanthropist wife Honey by Toronto Star reporter Kevin Donovan. Very intriguing and you are left wondering who did it?

John has finished Downton Abbey series so we watched the first movie, set in 1927.


I finished The Angel, it is third in a series so perhaps that is why I didn't love it, not having read the other two.

I loved The Wife Between Us satisfyingly long and twisty.

I started Buried Lies and I am enjoying it as I did her other books.


  1. You might have the space or facilities to store tyres but not everyone would. I guess there are companies who can do that for you.

    1. Actually they are stored at the Hyundai dealership.

  2. Impressive that you are on top of cleaning out unneeded stuff. That’s an easy thing to procrastinate!
    best, mae at

  3. I bet we would like The Wife Between Us. It looks like you had several nice outings with folks.

    Happy (American) Thanksgiving! I'm just getting around to visiting my blog friends this week---apologies for being so late to the table.

  4. I had never heard of Barry Sherman and his wife, Honey!
