Art Journaling Monday!

Welcome back to Art Journaling Monday!

While I was in Cleveland last week, I finally made it to see the giant FREE stamp for myself! It did not disappoint.

Meanwhile, in the Public Square…


Mayhem, thinking deep and apparently vaguely troubling thoughts with the assistance of her tail. And her box. Of course.

Linkity wiped out by lidocaine

Why do I always forget that lidocaine injections leave me feeling spacey and exhausted a few hours later?! Ugh. I had four “suspicious looking” moles removed earlier today and I am fading fast now… (I’ll find out in about a week if they were more than suspicious looking.) *yawning*

There won’t be any linkity at all next week, as I’ll be in Cleveland for work most of the week…

Reading Update
Muse and ReverieMuse and Reverie by Charles de Lint. Another solid collection of Newford short stories, set before Widdershins.
The Blue Girl (Newford, #15)The Blue Girl by Charles de Lint. I’m not a big YA fan, even for a Newford book. It wasn’t a bad book! And I did enjoy the tiny cameos and mentions of a few of the established Newford folks.

“Was that a bird I heard?!??” -Mayhem

Linkity couldn’t put down a book until it was finished and now it’s seriously late to be working on linkity

Reading Update
Tapping the Dream Tree by Charles de Lint. Another good collection of short stories set in Newford and the hills nearby.
Spirits in the Wires by Charles de Lint. This isn’t one of my favorite Newford books – it doesn’t have quite the zing of some of the other books and some of the overly specific technology bits have not aged well.
Widdershins by Charles de Lint. I don’t think I realized the first time I read this book that, because of how all the ends are tied up, this was probably the final big Newford book.


“Can’t a girl enjoy her box in peace?!” -Mayhem

Linkity desperately needs this long holiday weekend

Work continues to be crazy. I am so behind on blogs and GoodReads and life in general. Hi! :waving:

Reading Update
Moonlight and Vines by Charles de Lint. Upon rereading, I liked this third collection of Newford stories more than the second (The Ivory and the Horn).
Forests of the Heart by Charles de Lint. This Newford book was a solid read, but not one of my favorites.
The Onion Girl by Charles de Lint. Not my favorite Newford book – it’s a hard read. I really wanted some magical healing, dammit.


“Why are you taking a picture of my foot, Mom??!” -Chaos

Check out that proto-thumb dewclaw there, eh? He doesn’t have extra toes or anything – just large and weirdly dexterous dewclaws. I don’t think May can even move her dewclaws, besides flexing the actual claw…
