I have my Kiwi and I have been spinning for a little while now. I named my Kiwi Bert after a character in a book. The book is Magik by Angie Sage, the first book in the Septimus Heap Trilogy. Bert is a cat who has been changed into a duck to better handle the marsh environment she lives in. By the way Magik is a great book and I can't wait for the next book to come out in March!
I am going to paint Bert, but I have not decided on how I am going to do it yet. I feel that a regular oil finish would be too boring.
I just finished reading Sir Thursday by Garth Nix in the Keys to the Kingdom series. I thought it really flowed well with the storyline and maybe went a little too fast.
I am hoping to see Kate Dicamillo this week as she will be in St. Paul for her latest book, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.
For now I'll see what I can do about getting some pics up on this blog.
