A small food/convenience store recently opened on my side of the railroad tracks. I stopped by after church to check it out, and got myself the one ingredient I was missing for emerald soup. That makes me happy, since with the heat wave scheduled to go all week, I really need something cool!
Realized recently that I've got a lot to look forward to on the reading front in upcoming months. Terry Brooks has a new Shannara book out in August, Sharon Shinn has a new fantasy out in October, Mercedes Lackey releases another Valdemar book in October, Robin McKinley has a book coming out in November that looks interesting to me, Patricia McKillip has a novel coming in December...and February brings the sixth and final installment of 'Erin Hunter's Seekers series I thoroughly enjoyed the first five books of. Hopefully there will be new reads by Carol Berg, Rachel Neumeier, and Kristin Cashore down the road as well. =)
