What else is going on? Oh over at Skyler's Dad aka Some Days It's Not Worth Chewing Through the Leather Straps....there is signage. Yes, signage. Oh my and funny too. CG and I have already laughed and cried from it this morning. Go see for yourself. Now it is a lil after 7 a.m. here. Princess Emma is sleeping, Granny M is sleeping, Dear is sleeping, Niece (along with babies) is sleeping, Dogs are sleeping, Cats are sleeping. College Girl has left. And yeah, I am awake. Why? Well because I can not go back to sleep. Must be some gene I am missing. But once awake always awake or so it seems. Then at 3 p.m. today my head will be nodding while I pretend not to want to nap in the middle of the day.
Salty Seas & His Heroic Friends. The story is told by the shrimp boat, Salty Seas. His friends are the seagull, pelican and dolphin. They work hard to save the Captain from a shark when he is knocked overboard. Wow! This is a thriller for the kiddos. Me, well I just want to hang up the pages as the art work is beautiful. A real rainbow of color. I would be thrilled to have this artist do a whole mural for me.....what a dream.
Otherwise today we are going to go to see Peter Pan at the theater my College Girl is in. She is a pirate (yes, girls can have a mean streak too) as well as the horrid crocodile. We are taking Princess Emma to see her sissy in the play as well as my niece and her two lil ones. What an adventure. Then this afternoon Dear and I have a wonderful day planned of cleaning our room. Gosh who thought it could get so fun? Actually I am so way behind on putting up clean clothes. And we had our bed on risers. One of them gave way....NOT on my side of the bed! So all that stuff we had stored under our bed we had to clean out. Now we are actually going through it all and getting rid of what is not needed. Putting other things in to a proper storage container. And those silly important papers that for some reason I had stored under the bed can now go in the file drawer.
The Half-Made World by Felix Gilman is a interesting mix of fantasy and reality. It is a combination of western, adventure and magic in a sci-fi kinda way. Hard to tell you but I know that I am already trying to carve out time for myself so I can continue reading it. I promise you it is not a easy glib book, but one that has you really digging in deeper. It is a world that is only half made so far. Can you imagine that? Of course there are the power struggles as well as the explorers to see what lies in the unknown. We are always trying to see over that next hill, past the big trees and into tomorrow. I do love that it was compared to Stephen King's The Dark Tower. Pretty high praise there.
I am enjoying this one so much....love being taken away to a different place. And I am hanging out in this half-made world wondering what is going to happen next. Where will we travel to....and find....and discover....and? Just my kinda book. Wanna share? Well I will....with you. If you would like your own copy I have a second copy of it right here. And will mail it to one lucky reader. Just leave me a comment on where you would like to explore. What you would love to see or experience. Make sure I have your email as usual so I can contact you. Oh and if you follow me on GFC I will give you an extra entry. As well as my twitter and facebook. So put those in the separate comments too!
