Another Weekend

So far, this weekend is nicer than last. Justin might be playing his Xbox, but at least he's responding when I talk to him! That was getting so old! Boys and their toys! He's been much more attentive since our talk, though.

Not sure if we're doing anything, as in going out. Tempy wasn't home when I tried visiting last night, so maybe I'll go tonight if she's home, maybe. Justin's talked about going to visit a second cousin of his, and I'm not sure if I want to go. I kind of just want to stay home. It's not as cold as it was, but it's still winter!

I have to get back to writing my short story. Not sure why I hit slack time with that. Trying not to drag it out as long as The Wheel of Time series! lol! I've been rereading the first book of the series, The Eye of the World. Remembering why I liked it in the first place. Lord only knows if I'll make through the other bazillion books in the series, I think there's something like 14 or so.

I also just finished reading Vulcan's Forge by Josepha Sherman and Susan Shwartz. I'd read Vulcan's Heart years ago, which is apparently the sequal to the other. Finally reading Forge cleared up a few minor questions I had. They bounced back and forth between the past and present, but unlike Unspoken Truth they did it much more effectively by alternating chapters until the past story was finished. I like that way much better. They also did something else that I like in Star Trek...throwing in Scripture and using it correctly, one might even say logically since we're dealing with Vulcans!

So, does anyone out there have a book or set of books that they like to reread from time to time? I like doing that because it's like visiting old friends, and you always see something new.
