Hello. Thank you all for the card comment cheer in the last post. My husband went to lunch with his former boss who loved his card! ೕ(˃̵ᴗ˂̵ ๑) Yay! E took a picture of him holding his card at the restaurant and sent it to me on Hangouts.
Wow. Another Monday, second to last of July. Where did July go?
How is your Monday going? Ours is less hectic since summer math is over ☜(˚▽˚)☞ – hoorah! The tween had her ortho appointment today. The 10-year-old was wanting udon last week but I had to pacify her last Friday at Whole Foods with their freshly made sushi rolls and pastries so I could rest. So today is the day I had promised her udon which gave the three of us another opportunity to try another local place – the theme of our summer (If you want to see click here.). However I hope you’ve eaten because here’s today’s lunch: (top to bottom) Nabeyaki Udon, a Bento Box of salmon teriyaki + tuna sashimi + tempura, Gangsta Roll, and Shrimp Tempura roll.
Alrighty then, I’m linkin’ up with Kathryn as usual for the Monday book post.
Taken from her weekly, Monday post:
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organize yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit – join them!
I finished listening to Inkheart by Cornelia Funke.
Imagine combining books with a magical power and what does it bring you? Why sinister characters, double agents, and danger! Meggie is a 12-year-old girl who has a love for books like her father, the bookbinder. Then she finds out their simple life is almost like a mirage as the appearance of an old friend of her father’s changes everything.
It has been a while since I’ve read a middle grade book. I believe this is a very popular series. I had thought at first it was about dragons but I got that totally wrong, LOL. As a lover of books I was intrigued about what this story centers around. And to imagine being surrounded and working with tons of books where text is surrounded by its original cover of leather
perhaps transports me to another time. Listening to this fantasy of mystery and intrigue was a nice change from adult fantasy. Why? I appreciated the clean storyline because the plot is then able to focus on content and movement of the storyline. Three stars.
Well, I’m off to tackle laundry. Mad Eye Moody would be extremely disappointed with me in that department as I haven’t been practicing, “Constant vigilance!” Have a good Monday and TTYL.
