|I'm Feeling Good

Such a great day! Physical Therapy barely hurt. I'm happy. The sun is out. We have fresh figs and amazing cheeses at home. carryaway is hopefully coming for dinner tonight! All is super happy in Lanetteland today. I am making my healthier beef stroganoff for dinner tonight, but we'll also have some cut fresh figs and cheeses. MAN we are lucky this week to have such nice food and weather. It's supposed to be nice this weekend, so I'm hoping Craig will want to go on the hike with Angela and I and that I can finally meet her kitty too.
I'd like to thank those of you who suggested new fantasy series! I am loving Kushiel's Dart by Jaqueline Carey as well as His Magesty's Dragon. While I did have a problem with a dragon speaking immediately upon hatching (Craig and I BOTH rolled our eyes at that one), we like the book overall and the personality of the dragons is adorable and warms the heart. It's a great mix to have the dark dark book with the cuter one.

Yay for Lanetteland!!!
Its so good to hear you are doing better! Fresh figs are the bomb!! I have a fig tree(a gift from a bird) and addictively eat them when they are over-ripe...they are so awesome that way. I also cook with them...and add them to salads. Great to hear everything is going well in Lanetteland(Is that anything like Disneyland?? lol)
It often has shorter lines than Disneyland. :) Things are going great. It's really hard to find fresh figs in Seattle, so we are lucky to have found them.
I'm WAY behind in LJ and am going to backtrack and see what all I missed, but this jumped out at me and I HAD to comment. I LOVE the Kushiel series! I didn't think you'd be as into them, considering how dark they are. I have Kushiel's Avatar, so when you get there you don't have to buy it or get it elsewhere. I have yet to read the last one (I'm pretty sure it's called 'Kushiel's Mercy' but I don't know, am just assuming from the previous titles) but I've read the rest of them. In fact, the books I don't yet own from that series are going to be on my birthday list. As far as other suggestions, I really enjoyed the two books I've read by Christopher Paolini (I might have spelled it wrong, the book titles are 'Eragon' and 'Eldest') but the series isn't complete yet, so don't know if you want to get into that considering what happened with "Wheel of Time":/
I'm going through the list of suggestions and trying out the series. I never did get into the Melanie Rawn books I bought.
Well I can understand that as the one you bought wasn't the first book of the series. I have a Melanie Rawn book that isn't part of a series. It's set in modern time but deals with witchcraft, so is still kind of fantasy. I'll bring that and "War of the Flowers" by Tad Williams, which also isn't part of a series next time I come over.

Maybe you'll enjoy those, they're both pretty easy reads, although it did take me a while to get into "War of the Flowers".
