Do you know Gretchen Kelley of Drifting Through My Open Mind? If not, I highly recommend her! Here is a post that everyone who cares about females needs to read. For real.
Now, if you don’t know about the tardigrade, join the club. I just learned about it AND IT’S AWESOME. It’s a microscopic critter that can live just about anywhere at any temperature. Kind of like a cockroach, only better. If I ever become microscopic, I am totally going to get one for a pet. Or serve one as a pet, depending. I would name it Terrance. Terrance the Tardigrade. He would blog for me on Tuesdays.
I’m reading this aMAZing book called BOTTLETOPS FOR BATTLESHIPS: SYLVIE’S WAR. It’s based on my friend Andrea Gilbey’s mother’s memories of being a child during World War II. I’m reading it aloud to my mom, who was also a child during those years, and we’re having a great time. Mom’s memory is fading, but she’s loving the stories, and I can stop often and ask if she did this or that and sometimes she remembers something from way back when and it tickles us both. For a limited time, Andrea is donating a portion of her earnings from this book to War Child, a group of organizations that help children impacted by armed conflict to recover their lives.
