This and That

Mostly Real Life in this posting, with a little something about reading tacked on at the end.

Maya had a fantastic sixth birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese's on Saturday. She considers this her "best party ever," and I can't disagree. Yeah! The five girls, including Maya, there all got along well, and I enjoyed chatting with a couple of the mothers who stayed for the party. Remarkably painless, really, and I suspect I'll even agree if Maya wants to have her birthday party there again next year.

We also had a couple of hours left to enjoy our local Juneteenth celebration after Maya's party. Juneteenth is the celebration of the end of slavery in the United States. You can learn more here. Our local celebration is free, and they provided live music, food, information from sponsors (local human service organizations, colleges and universities, and businesses), etc. Maya especially enjoyed playing in the inflatables and going inside a real fire truck.

Have you seen the Barnes & Noble blog, Unbound: NOOK and BN eReader Blog, yet? Even if you don't have an e-reader, this is a good source for finding new releases. As always, some of the comments are interesting. You can find some raves there about The Passage to off-set my negative opinion, too. LOL

I accidentally wandered into a Juneteenth celebration yesterday and stayed for a bit to listen to the music and watching people dance.
