Nobody but us in here. . .
I live! I finished 3, count 'em 3 books on Wednesday. No, I did not start them then. Yes, I do have the abominable habit of reading several books at once. But now I'm down to 3: Dragonfly in Amber (still!) Forge of the Gods (for review) and Chinese Cinderella, so yay, me!
In addition, I've been inspired to find/make time for writing more seriously again, so of course the blogging suffers.
Deb Gliori became one of the kids' and my top favourite authors the other day when we read this passage in "Pure Dead Wicked":
The mini-market demonstrated that the rogue apostrophe was alive and well in Auchenlochtermuchty, with banners offering FREE-RANGE TURKEY'S, FINE WINE'S, and oddly, FRESH ASPARAGU'S.
I think she's Mollusc's new hero. ^_^
I ordered new math books the other day and they showed up yesterday, to much excited hooting and hollering from the kids. Fishy felt sorry for his because it was cold, and put it on the heat register, Sluggie actually kissed hers, grabbed a pencil and started in right away, and Mollusc was duly impressed with her Algebra book. Poor Prawn was the only one who didn't get a new one, much to her disappointment. I wonder what will happen when the biology course shows up. . .
I have more to say, but I have to get ready to teach a new class, which may or may not be a recurring thing for me.
Oh yes, and my elbow hurts and the birdfeeders were emptied today, so I'm guessing a storm is on the way.
