I'm a little bit in love with my new layout over at bay12_fic. Lovely!

I don't like lime flavored candy. However, I have a serious weakness for lemon flavored. I also don't like most strawberry flavored things. I like real strawberries, but strawberry flavor tastes so fake to me. Blech.

My mom and I took Hailey and Cole up to the pool today. It was a little too much on the breezy side for me. I had the towels draped over me trying to keep from shivering. Cole tells me that the pool was a nice temperature, but I'm not sure if I'm going to believe him.

I read two books today ...
Book #53 - Swallowing Darkness (Meredith Gentry #7) by Laurell K. Hamilton - This book closes out the story arc that's been driving the series since book 1. Merry is pregnant. According to the rules her Aunt set down for her, she will become Queen of the Unseelie Court. Only, Merry's cousin isn't taking too kindly to having his birthright ripped away from him and will try to do anything to stop her. Throughout the series, Merry has been trying to find a way to keep herself safe from the warring factions in both the Unseelie and the Seelie Courts. She's invoked the nearly extinct wild magic of the Goddess and her Consort and brought magic back into the world of Faerie. And she's still not safe. She's caught between two worlds and she has to walk a fine line to keep from falling into either of them. She has learned to use the non-Fey sides of herself to stay safe and sane. All in all, a good book that ties up the arc while leaving an opening for a whole new slew of problems.


Book #54 - Divine Misdemeanors (Meredith Gentry #8) by Laurell K. Hamilton - Having taken her men and voluntarily exiled herself to LA, Merry gets caught up in the middle of a series of murders of a group of demi-Fey. The wild magic is still riding her and causing her consorts to gain power at every turn. Some of the humans she saved while escaping the Unseelie Court have gained power as well, something that's nearly unheard of. Not quite as tight a story arc as in the previous books, but still engaging and fun to read.

I did write today, but not much. I wrote a page or so at the pool but I couldn't sit comfortably in the chair. It just didn't work out well.

I think tomorrow is going to be Verizon day. I'm ready. I'm ready to get myself a new phone. Wish me shiny, techy things.

And now I'm done. I have to get started on all the lovely shows that I watch on Thursday.
