Hi, reader friends! Check out the first line of Thirst of Steel by Ronie Kendig below, then open the book nearest you and share the first line! Life has been beyond crazy here on the home front for the last couple of weeks so allow me to get y’all up to speed with my chaos.
Two weeks ago, we went camping at one of our favorite local campgrounds and we had quite a scare with my sweet Suzie Q. I took her to our vet for possible heat exhaustion/anxiety and she stayed overnight for two nights before she got the pep back in her step.
I have been on an antibiotic side effect rollercoaster of misery since the middle of last week, but thanks to Jen Turano, I had an exciting yet light-hearted read (review in progress) to get me through this unfortunate series of events.
Suzie Q. is all better now and I am so thankful for that! I’ll be heading back to the doctor’s office for a follow up once I finally finish off these pills. I’m not sure how I feel about the flaming ruins of my well-laid plans for the first two weeks of our new academic year, something between disappointment and resignation perhaps.
Now seems like a good time to remind myself that we’re in charge of the (homeschooling) calendar and not the other way around. Do you ever need that reminder, reader friends?!
Thirst of Steel by Ronie Kendig
“Deserving to die and wanting to die were two entirely different things.”
I took liberties in selecting today’s line, this is the first line of the second section of chapter 1. Tzivia is one of my favorite characters and I enjoy her point of view!
As much as I have been looking forward to this story, it is just not a sick day kind of read so I’m counting it as yet another reason to pray for a complete and speedy (side-effect free) recovery! I need to be 100% to tackle this big adventure!
