"Time Out" from Reading (4) - Unearthly

"Time Out" from Reading
(click on the link for an explanation of this feature & to join in)

Seriously, I can't belive how sick I've been!!! I had a horrible cold, then something else came along, then I got the stomach flu! I'm doing the best I can!

A couple weeks ago, I went to Muir Woods National Park with my mother, grandmother, & little boy. I've been wanting to go here for a while, & after reading Unearthly, by Cynthia Hand last month, I was even more determined to go. The book is set in Wyoming & mentions the outdoors & forests so much that I thought visiting a place like this would be a perfect activity for this feature!

There's also t-shirt Friday mentioned in Unearthly, the designated day of the week where the high school students wear a casual t-shirt to school. I purposely wore my Clint Eastwood shirt to incorporate the book into my day just a little bit more.

I caved to my little boy's crying & let him drag his blanket around through the mud - nothing a washing machine can't fix easily enough!
