A Walk with Mustard Soup

Yesterday it was a windy, but sunny day, so we went for a nice long walk in the afternoon.

We stopped at our favorite restaurant in Garnwerd for mustard soup and bread before heading back home.

On our way back we enjoyed the beautiful colors of the setting sun.

More Awesome Bookish Mail

There were two books for me today!

Melliane sent me Sea Change and an awesome pig postcard.
Sea Change is about a kraken!

And there was another copy of The Outside!
Laura & Sparky sent it to us. I absolutley love The Outside and am very happy with this present, because now my owner's best friend can keep the copy of The Outside that we lent to her and which she fell in love with.

Thanks Melliane, Laura & Sparky!
You are awesome.

Creepy Mail

There was a really cool looking package for us today.

It turned out to be from our friend Eve.
She sent us some really cool Halloween stuff and some things from Detroit, like an awesome shot glass.

The creepy bag didn't contain real organs, but candy skulls and chocolate!

Thanks Eve!
What an awesome present.

Totally Awesome Mail

When we got home today there was a notice that they tried to deliver a package, but because nobody was home they'd try again the next day. Knowing chances were high we wouldn't be home tomorrow I was all set to have to wait until this weekend to be able to get our package, but then suddenly the doorbell rang...

It was the delivery guy who had decided to try to deliver our package one more time before calling it a day. How awesome!

The package turned out to be from Jeffe, who sent us lots of books and chocolate!

We were especially happy with these two books.
Thunder on the Battlefield: Sorcery is an anthology that contains a story written by Jeffe. Rogue's Pawn (an awesome Fantasy Romance) is also written by Jeffe. Rogue's Pawn is a special, limited edition print version. There are only a few of them made, otherwise the book is only available as ebook. Jeffe signed both books for us as well!

My owner, Voodoo Bride and I love Rogue's Pawn and are very happy with this print version. Finally we have a Jeffe book to hug and pet (because hugging our eReader just isn't the same).

Thanks Jeffe!
You are awesome!

I'm Still Around

I've received another really cool book.

I earned a coupon for a free pizza by helping my owner out with work.

And I played Mass Effect of course.

So business as usual, but nothing really exciting to tell you about.

Awesome Bookish Mail!!!

Today there was a package for us with a book inside.

It turned out to be The Outside by Laura Bickle!
We've been looking forward to this book since last year, when we read The Hallowed Ones, and have been stalking the mailmen ever since hearing the book was put in the mail for us by bookdepository.

We're very happy with it and will start reading it right away!

I also made a video of me doing my celebration dance, but YouTube wasn't cooperating, so we'll try to post that later.

A Free Book Filled with Dreams and Wishes

Yesterday my owner took me to the bookstore to get a book called 'My Dream for Our Country'.
This book was made in honor of our new king. There are lots of dreams, wishes and pictures in the book. The dreams and wishes are meant to inspire our king.

Every household in the Netherlands received a coupon that could be used to get a free copy of the book. Isn't that cool?

Among the pictures in the book are pictures taken at the day when our king was sworn into his kingship.

And pictures of birds as well!
These pictures accompanied a dream for a better future for rare birds.

A Delicious Dinner

Today we went for a long walk and ended up in our favorite restaurant in Garnwerd.

I got to eat stuffed eggplant, which tasted much more yummy than it might look in this picture.

And patat!
(french fries)

It was a delicious meal and although the weather was grey (hence the lack of more pictures) we had a great outing.
