A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
Today, I discovered two mysteries as I went through my day. The first I discovered as I was taking Peter over to a friend's house for a playdate: I think that left is the new right here. There were at LEAST four people who were driving in the left lane WITH their left-hand blinkers on, who turned right. Huh??? *sigh* Welcome to Jordan.
The other mystery happened when I got home from dropping Peter off at his friend's: I went over to say hi to M'Shell and see how she was faring. As I walked over, I saw her along the side of the house and passed a stray cat sunning itself in the yard. I scared that guy off. Then, behind M'Shell, I heard a strange sound. It was a rustling in the leaves behind some of the bushed, and I thought sure it was another stray cat. They like to come and torment our poor tortoise and sit on her and stuff. Not sure if they think they can hitch a ride or something, but M'Shell is sufficiently ornery that she wouldn't go anywhere with them on top. Well, it wasn't a cat. Imagine my surprise when I see ANOTHER Tortoise!! And not only that, it's a BOY. So, apparently, M'Shell found herself a boyfriend. I have no idea where he came from or how he got in the yard, but, well, there he is! So, we now have two tortoises roaming the wilds of our front sidewalk. I wonder if we'll have more soon? He he he...

I like that the plot twists and turns a lot...and it makes you think. However, I don't appreciate Dan Brown's endings in his books. I find the endings incongruent with the rest of his stories--why make it a romance for the last chapter...
I loved this book. I'm a sucker for fairy tales/fantasy. This was so well written! I can't wait to read all the rest of her books!
I'm reading this one again. I liked it the first time I read it. I'm still liking it for the second time around. I like all of Shannon Hales' books. **Still lots of fun the second time around! I do like this book for a comfortable...
