I haven’t been very good at updating my blog very often.  I fully meant to write something earlier this week, or at least yesterday, but I was busy creating new templates for Ariclegomaniac and AriannaJoy.  I really like the way that Arianna’s template turned out, but there are some glitches with Aric’s.  It only looks good in Firefox.  I need to tweak it to look good in Internet Explorer.  I probably have a mislaid tag somewhere.  Easy to do when you are trying to alter an existing template.  I made Arianna’s from scratch, and then added the blog tags to it.  Works much better that way!  So, if you have a chance, go by and check out their blogs.  Maybe if you left them some comments they may decide to actually blogin it!

So, how did I celebrate the 10th day of Christmas?  Well, I went to work while the rest of my family slept for most of the morning.  Not exactly fun, but we are very thankful that I have this job, so I won’t complain.  Just between you and me, I would have liked to sleep in this morning rather than brave the cold air.

I have been listening to the audiobook of Stephen Lawhead’s Paradise War from the Song of Albion trilogy on the way to work and back.  It seems the only way I can get my literature in these days.  It’s a bit hard to get into, but now I’m thoroughly enjoying it.  If you like Celtic lore and fantasy (which my husband and I do), you would really like this.  It has some similar veins to C. S. Lewis’ Space Trilogy.  He also wrote The Pendragon Cycle which is about the Talieson, Merlin, and King Arthur, with a Celtic twist which would be more in line with the time period.  He has a new series, Raven trilogy, out with Hood and Scarlet so far.  I haven’t read them yet, but we’ve bought the audio books from Audible, and I hope to get to them as soon as I finish the Song of Albion trilogy.

Well, I suppose that’s enough rambling for now.  Have a great evening (or day, depending on when you read it)!
