During a business trip last week, I started reading the Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud. I wasn’t sure I was blown away by the first book…But apparently I was interested, so I read the second. By the third I knew I liked them. But then, I have a tendency to like teenage adventure stories. You should check them out. It’s approach was a little different.
I‘ve been working on my sewing “do over,” and it doesn’t suck. I’m trying to figure out a way to do a big reveal without actually having to be in the picture. Let’s just file this under the “Coming Soon!” heading.
This one remembered she had a B.B. gun and set about to teach herself how to shoot. Have you ever seen a hot pink B.B. gun? Is it just a Texas thing? Anyway, she also wrote a Cinquain poem this week in class that I think is awesome:
laughing, swimming, running
Totally the class clown
I like the Cinquain form, it’s fun and there are a lot of variations. I think I may have to do a Cinquain for the Weekend…. 🙂
