Book Review - Small Magic by Terry Brooks

 Small Magic: Short Fiction, 1977-2020 by [Terry Brooks]

Welcome.  It's been awhile since I've done a book review so hopefully I'll do this one justice. 

Terry Brooks is my absolute favorite Science Fiction/Fantasy author.  I've pretty much read every book he's written so when I received an advanced copy of this book (Net Galley) I couldn't wait to dive into it.

The book is a collection of 11 short stories by the author.  They feature characters from some of his other series so if you are familiar with his works you will be delighted to revisit these favorite characters and learn more about them.  If you've never read any of his books you will still enjoy the short stories because they are filled with very interesting characters and plot lines that are sure to capture your imagination.

I thoroughly enjoyed these shorts stories and would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy novels.  The only bad part for me was that I found myself wanting the stories to continue as they captured my attention and made me want to find out more about them and how the story would end.

Fun With Peanut Butter

 Howdy! - Today's post is rather "silly" but hey that's half the fun of having a blog is being able to post whatever you want, right?

So I was fixing a peanut butter sandwich one morning and had just opened a new jar.  I pulled the little silver lid off and thought that the little "button" on the lid was cool looking so I got my camera and snapped a photo.

Now some might think it's a bit risque or obscene but I found it to be kinda cute in a weird way.  

Then I looked into the jar and saw this...

Does anyone else see an Elephant standing on a circus stand?  I tried to draw an outline of what I was seeing but I stink at using the drawing feature on the editing program.  - Tell me what you see?

So today I looked inside the jar and thought those ridges and swirls are rather neat looking so here is today's peanut butter shot.

Sort of reminds me of those pictures you see of the rocks in Arizona at Antelope Canyon  The little (7) on the side is from where someone scraped the bottom of the jar and light was shining in.

Finally I give you a Peanut Butter Worm...Which by the way my daughter thought was gross when she first saw it, she actually thought it was a real worm.

I have no clue how this happened but when I scrapped the knife off on the bread this appeared.

I don't think I could ever do that again but it does look as if I have a worm on my sandwich.  

Well that's it for today.  - Hope you have enjoyed my, fun with peanut butter post.

Caturday Art - 2 27 21

Caturday Art
 Joining in today for Caturday Art
Took a photo of our cat, Captain Cuddles last week and thought it would look cool with an art effect.  So I went to BeFunky and discovered that they had a new bunch of artsy effects you could try.  I picked out one that I liked and here is my result.  The original photo of Cuddles is first and then my artsy version.
I used the new (Mosaic) effect for my artsy version.

I rather like how it turned out.  He's such a sweet cat.

New Family Member

 Today I have the great pleasure to introduce you to our newest family member.

After several weeks of searching we finally found our little puppy.
There were a couple of others that we came close to adopting but somebody always beat us to them.

Yesterday I happened to check the Humane Societies website again and found this little guy up for adoption so I called and got an appointment set up to meet him last night.

He and his sibling sister were found as strays about 2 months ago.  At that time they were very malnourished and almost hairless.  The people at BMHS don't really know much about what breed of dog he is other then they think he might have some chihuahua in him.
His hair has grown back for the most part but he does have a few bare spots still and one of his eyes appears to be slightly smaller then the other one.
He's very sweet though and gets along with our Pug, Cricket and he's really a cuddly fellow.  So without further ado let me introduce you to:
Darby Joe Krause - He's 2 months old currently.

 We look forward to many adventures together.
