Good morning, my dears! I sincerely hope that you all slept well, and that you’re ready to greet the new week with a smile!
FRIDAY, AFTER WORK – I picked up Will from my Aunt’s, and we went straight home. Nothing particularly exciting happened this night, though I think we did start Sandman on Netflix — after Will went to bed, of course. We enjoyed the first two episodes, and just haven’t had the chance to get to the rest of them!
SATURDAY – Will slept until 6:30 with no wakeups. We cannot complain about that. With no real plans for this weekend, but an urgent need to wear out a toddler, we put our Zoo membership to use and went to see the animals. It quickly got brutally hot, though, so we didn’t stay long. (Not that our zoo is incredibly large to begin with…) Will did not go down for his nap easy, because nothing can ever just go smoothly with this kid. (😵) But down he did go, and then the rest of the day went pretty good. We went out in the yard and played in our tiny little blowup pool and splash pad! After he went to bed, I got to read, and enjoyed the quiet!
SUNDAY – Will, once again, slept until 6:30 with no wakeups. It was glorious. Sunday, we didn’t do anything much. I took Will with me to go grocery shopping, and he loved pointing at…well, everything. So much is new and fascinating to him, it’s so much fun to watch. He went down for a nap without a fuss, and then, well, nothing much happened after he woke up.
It was finally a mostly relaxing weekend! I hope yours was too!
I’m spot lighting Ashes of the Sun by Django Wexler today! Orbit was kind enough to send me copies of the first two books in this series, and I’m so excited to dive into them. I have heard nothing but good things about both of these books!
ASHES OF THE SUN BY DJANGO WEXLER
Long ago, a magical war destroyed an empire, and a new one was built in its ashes. But still the old grudges simmer, and two siblings will fight on opposite sides to save their world, in the start of Django Wexler’s new epic fantasy trilogy
Gyre hasn’t seen his beloved sister since their parents sold her to the mysterious Twilight Order. Now, twelve years after her disappearance, Gyre’s sole focus is revenge, and he’s willing to risk anything and anyone to claim enough power to destroy the Order.
Chasing rumors of a fabled city protecting a powerful artifact, Gyre comes face-to-face with his lost sister. But she isn’t who she once was. Trained to be a warrior, Maya wields magic for the Twilight Order’s cause. Standing on opposite sides of a looming civil war, the two siblings will learn that not even the ties of blood will keep them from splitting the world in two.
I hope you have a fantastic week, my friends!
