I got my Welcome letter to…Pottermore!!!

Ever since I first heard about Pottermore two days before Magical Quill hunt began I have been wanting to get a look inside those virtually magical doors! I stayed up for a couple of hours after my ‘normal’ bedtime waiting around with one of my closest friends who is essentially my cousin (just because we are not biologically related, doesn’t mean we are not family, her brother, mother, and father are also part of my family and I think of them as my cousin, aunt, and uncle respectively) as she is also very much into the “Wizarding World of Harry Potter”. Neither of us were able to get in on day 1.

Back to the Books Giveaway Blog Hop

I am participating in the Back to the Books Giveaway Blog Hop. This hop began today and will last through Sept. 7th. There are just under 300 blogs participating.

So I’ve decided to start this post to dedicate to mentioning those blogs.

This afternoon my 7th and 8th grade English teacher came over. I’ve made a point to stay in touch with most of my very favorite teachers from my public schooling days.  She brought of Scrabble for us to play as I had never played it before! I always struggled with spelling from elementary all the way through high school. I was very surprised to find out that I actually did enjoy playing Scrabble. And at least during this first ever game, I was pretty good. We playing with each having 8 tiles out at a time. My first word down was brag. When I reached into the fabric bag and withdrew 4 more titles I was initially dismayed when I saw that I had drawn a LOT of vowels.
