This is another one of those “don’t wanna do my chores, so I’m posting a bit of nothing on my blog” posts.
Let’s see. Merkin bought a mini cheesecake — which really isn’t mini so much as “not as big as a regular cheesecake”, and I noticed a piece missing. I asked BratzBasher if she’d had a piece — not that I minded, I just wondered if it was her.
BB: “No. Daddy gave me a piece.”
Foo4: “So you did have cheesecake.”
BB: “I didn’t have cheesecake, I received cheesecake.”
Foo4: “Ah…big difference.”
I read Avi’s Crispin: The Cross of Lead during my shift at the bookstore today. It was pretty good. I think BB might like it. It’s about a boy in medieval times who’s framed for theft and murder in an attempt to cover up his claim to an inheritance he knows nothing about. Was that cryptic enough for you? It’s a quick read. I finished it in three hours, with a few customers interrupting me and time left over to do a little embroidery.
I’ve started listening to Keeper of the Grail, book 1 of the Youngest Templar trilogy by Michael P. Spradlin. I like it so far, but I’ve only finished the first track. I’ll let you know if it’s worth your time. Because your time, my friends is so much more valuable than my own that I’d hate to think you’d wasted it on less-than-awesome books that I could easily preview for you. You’re welcome.
Before I started Keeper, I was listening to Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. It was waaaaay too depressing to continue. Very good, but so sad it made me sick. I might finish it on an up day, or a day when I feel like wallowing in someone else’s grief — which isn’t really that often. Merkin gave me permission to quit.
I went to JoAnn today for a pattern, but it was the wrong day to get it on sale. I wandered around anyway, and I came home with a new thread organizer. It was 40% off and holds 40 spools. I almost filled it when I got home. I’ll need another soon.
I’m out of things to type. Time to fold some laundry. Mad will be glad to know we’re all done with our laundry for the week, so she can hog the machines all she wants.
