home busyness

When the iPod runs out it's time to quit for the day.
I got the 65 gallon yard debris can full, another pile of weeds to put in when that one's emptied, all the moss taken off the deck and concrete though I still need to saturate it with moss-out and spray it off. The garage is clean but I found another termite nest. Broke that up and sprayed it with RAID. Still need to put up the overhead wire storage shelving and the pegboard over the workbench. Also still have half the front yard to weed and the hillside needs the weed-eater taken to it.
Mom & Dad came over and picked up their stuff for the garage sale they're having this weekend. I've got the corner of my basement back!
Tomorrow the plan is to finish weeding the front yard, demoss & pressure wash sidewalks, deck, and driveway and think about the garage shelving and pegboard! As for the hillside, it's useless anyway so it can sit.

I finished off The Heart of Stars by Kate Forsyth the other night. It's the last book in the Rhiannon's Ride trilogy. Pretty good book. I hated the second one and almost didn't read this one. A couple surprises toward the end and I liked how she stayed with one set of characters when the characters split off instead of alternating chapters between all three sets of characters.
I'm now reading Magic or Madness by Justine Larbalester.

Somebody hated Tower of Ravens and The Shining City as much as I did!!!!
But I must admit, the third was strangely mesmerising.........
I don't like Magic or Madness either.

I had a few problems with her explanations of magic in Magic or Madness. You only have a certain amount of magic and when it's gone, you're dead. But JayTee says after Jason takes her magic, she goes off to the dance club and regains some from the energy given off by the people there. Magic Lessons hasn't made it any clearer but I'm not done with it yet!

*snorts* I gave up after Magic Lessons. Her getting knocked up did it for me. I'm not going to touch Magic's Child even with a very long barge pole.

If I hadn't already had the book here I probably wouldn't have read it either! And just to top things off, it wasn't her fault. It was the old man Cansino inside her manipulating her feelings for Dan that was to blame. Bah and humbug even.
Here's a short recap if you're interested. After Jay Tee almost died twice from using her magic (Tom gave her some of his the first time), Reason manipulated the cells in her body so that she no longer had any magic and would live to a ripe old age. She then did the same for Esmerelda and herself though Tom decided to keep his magic. The twist at the end of the story was that although Reason's baby didn't have the Cansino magic, she was as magical as Tom and he's the only one who knows. The rest of them don't have a shred of magic.

Yay. I might go read it now. Not.
By the way... THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR GIVING ME YOUR PAID TIME!!! But, just a question: why me?

lol A pretty disappointing ending.

I thought you'd have the most fun and get the most use out of it. Out of my friends list, you're the one who posts the most, I talk with often, and has used up all of your userpics! :-) Enjoy.

Have you heard the news about the new Obernewton books? The Stone Key is supposed to be released Oct 29 this year!!! :D Then The Sending next year.
