Thanksgiving 2021

I’m not going to lie, that sounds like a really rad Thanksgiving morning right now. Except, I ain’t got no pie!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! If you choose to visit relatives, I hope you have played it safe and help stop the spread of this virus. This time next year, I don’t want to be looking down the barrel of three years of this shit.

Have fun, make memories, get fat on delicious food!

Thanksgiving 2020

Just popping in to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving this week! Sure, it’s going to be a weird one but just make the best of it that you can. 🙂

Mr. C&M had a successful deer hunt opening weekend. He brought down his first deer and he killed it instantly which is great. We had to buy a deep freezer which I’m excited about because now I can bulk buy things and go out to the stores less.

My science fiction reading is going well but I’ll detail that in an end of the month post.

I’ve been thinking about New Year’s resolutions for the blog already and I’m excited about them. In all fairness, they’re probably not that exciting but any change after this year seems big lol.

How do you plan to spend your Thanksgiving?

We’re doing a quiet day at home with good food, books and video games. So an average day in this household, but with more food. 😛

Terraform Me a New Ear Drum

Sorry for a lack of updates folks but this little blogger caught herself a nasty upper respiratory infection that caused her ear drum to rupture. So whenever I am not at work, I’m wandering around my house responding with a “HUH?!?!” to everything my husband says OR sleeping. I’ve slept SO much but it really does help.

I knew I was coming down with something when we left for our trip north a week and a half ago. I did not foresee becoming THIS sick. I was trucking along fine until my ear drum ruptured and then I was just down for the count.

Samus has done her best to help me recoup. Maximum snuggles while reading or sleeping.

As you can see, I’ve been working my way along Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson. It appears to be equal parts slightly boring and absolutely fascinating. I’m fairly certain it’s the terraforming the planet that is keeping me going. The characters are okay but the transformation to make the planet habitable for humans is the best part. It’s long though, highly detailed, so it will take me probably to the end of the month to finish it.

Alas, we’re heading back north this week for Thanksgiving. Every year we rotate where we spend Thanksgiving and it hasn’t been at my dad’s house in quite some time. So expect another small hiatus from me.

Speaking of my dad AND science fiction month, I guess it never really registered until I made the list of movies and TV shows but my dad has been my greatest influence into science fiction. It’s funny the things you never realize until it is very obviously pointed out in random fashion.

Who influenced YOUR love for science fiction??

Books I’m Thankful For

Well isn’t that a hard list to whittle down?! I’m jumping on the thankful for books bandwagon because really, can you thank books enough? I think not.

I have accepted the fact that the only way I’m going to know how this story ends is via the tv show. I still have to thank GRRM though for getting me into epic fantasy. This one series has lead me to so many wonderful books that it would be supremely rude to ignore it just because I’m bitter that the next book still isn’t out.

This isn’t the first Chuck Palahniuk book I read, but it is my favorite. The wonderful world of Palahniuk can’t be described, it can only be experienced.

The first book in the series is not my favorite BUT this series is my absolute favorite Urban Fantasy world. This was also my introduction to the Ilona Andrews world and that is not something this girl regrets.

From the start to finish, this is an excellent trilogy. It was also my introduction to Brandon Sanderson and he’s now on my Must Read Everything By This Author list.

I am thankful for this book for it’s ability to be both wonderful fantasy and light, fluffy fun. The fact that it hardcore reminds me of World of Warcraft helps too.

Well that’s my list book fiends! What books are you most thankful for??
