I feel like I had a moment of adult level up yesterday! My poor mail and UPS man were not nearly as excited about this as I was *LOL* imagine a new mattress, 3 sets of sheets, pillows etc. all arriving via post. Then add in a whole slew of supplies for a small business prepping for a huge convention in January. Yeah that was me yesterday, LOL. The bed is like sleeping on the most comfortable cloud ever. Needless to say I have a pile of fur balls sharing as well. Diva didn’t even let me get the sheets on before she tested out the new mattress. Funny note that goes with this, I was feeling slightly silly and yet also very adult by also ordering a mattress protector for my new bed. I mean you should protect your purchase right? And full confession here I eat in bed and yes things get spilled and sometimes a sick or baby fur love or two legger, well you know how it goes. Then I had a moment of fear after it shipped that I had just ordered one of those plastic things that your parents put on the bed when you were little JUST IN CASE for the bed wetting and I was like oh gods…..now I am like an adult baby or something. Blessedly the mattress protector is not one of those LOL it is actually kind of nice and protects against mites and all those other things you don’t want around. So….adult level up? Yeah? Anyways on to the part you are here for..LOL the Teaser.

This week is a long one, because the first is just so funny and because the second I am including is one of my favorite passages in this book, I am re-reading in honor of The Last Kingdom Season 3. Some books need more then one, right?

“You’re a bastard,” I said.

“Uhtred,” he began, but could find nothing more to say.

“You’re a piece of weasel-shit,” I said, “you’re an earsling.”

“I’m a king,” he said, trying to regain his dignity.

“So you’re a royal piece of weasel-shit. An earsling on a throne.”
― Bernard Cornwell, Lords of the North

“I am no Christian. These days it does no good to confess that, for the bishops and abbots have too much influence and it is easier to pretend to a faith than to fight angry ideas. I was raised a Christian, but at ten years old, when I was taken into Ragnar’s family, I discovered the old Saxon gods who were also the gods of the Danes and of the Norsemen, and their worship has always made more sense to me than bowing down to a god who belongs to a country so far away that I have met no one who has ever been there. Thor and Odin walked our hills, slept in our valleys, loved our women and drank from our streams, and that makes them seem like neighbours. The other thing I like about our gods is that they are not obsessed with us. They have their own squabbles and love affairs and seem to ignore us much of the time, but the Christian god has nothing better to do than to make rules for us. He makes rules, more rules, prohibitions and commandments, and he needs hundreds of black-robed priests and monks to make sure we obey those laws. He strikes me as a very grumpy god, that one, even though his priests are forever claiming that he loves us. I have never been so stupid as to think that Thor or Odin or Hoder loved me, though I hope at times they have thought me worthy of them.”

“My purpose, my whole life, had been to love him and be with him, to make him happy. I didn’t want to cause any unhappiness now—in that way, I decided it was probably better than he wasn’t here to see this, though I missed him so much at that moment the ache of it was as bad as the strange pains in my belly.” ― W. Bruce Cameron, A Dog’s Purpose

I hope everyone is having a good week. I am all tucked back into being back in my Home state for a visit. It has been a bit up and down, but there is always a book to lift one’s spirits. I treated myself to a small bit of shopping at good ole Half Price books, seems I have rather missed particularular used book shop.

“Before, I was brazen, life was a new frontier waiting to be conquered. I had high hopes for this adventure called freedom. Almost the way you feel when you get your first apartment and you tell your parents “so long.” The high comes crashing down as soon as you realize there’s nobody around to scold or reward. With it comes the realization that the people you were so desperately trying to get away from are the ones who gave you definition and character, a daughter, a friend, a sister.”
― Trisha R. Thomas, Nappily Ever After

“Still, she would not have married a man she knew full well did not love her, had there seemed any possible hope of a future with one who did. A man she had loved with every fragment of her broken heart.”

I just had to use two quotes today, because this one short line one made me feel like it simply had to be posted.

“Don’t allow any man to treat you as less than you are.” & “But I don’t think any parent can expect to escape this life without disappointing his child at some point. And the same could be said the other way around. We all of us fall short now and again, and disappoint someone dear to us, or ourselves. Thankfully, my parents have always been the forgiving sort.” ~ The Dancing Master by Julie Klassen

” Though she had seen them together on many ocassions, this afternoon she sensed a new, palpable tension on the bowls court between the King and Thomas Wyatt. Jane was sure that the new embroidered declaration slashed across the Kings chest was only one example of royal response to it. The rivalry for Anne Boleyn has taken a bitter turn, and Anne played the kings declared refusal to choose her over the Queen like a champion, openly flirting with both of them until the Kings face was white with rage.” I, Jane pg 191 by Diane Haeger

This one is part of my read it before I see it challenge that I committed to several years ago. They are making so many movies and shows from books these days, more then usual or maybe it’s just me?

“After Will Somers dutifully brought the king to tears of laughter, by ridiculing each of the men closest around them with pithy little barbs, the spindly court fool bowed to the king and made way for Thomas Wyatt to enter the center of the arranged banquet tables for his turn at the entertainment. ”
