Winners! It's Hot! Winter's Haven!

I'm putting everything into one post today!

First off, here are all of my recent winners:
Rochirmil won Do Hard Things
Carole won New Hampshire Weddings
'Nise and lalycairns won A Mending at the Edge. Please contact me with your details. I used the random thingy as usual to determine the winners.

By the way, you know how in the winter it's always like nice here and some of you are cold and stuff? Well, it's revenge on me, because it's 100 degrees here, today! That friends, is too hot. If you stand really still, you might sweat just a little as opposed to bucketloads.

Finally, I finished Winter's Haven by Athol Dickinson. It's a really different sort of book and while reading it, I have to admit I wasn't sure how I felt about it. Sometimes I even got bogged down in description a bit, it's a very...internal sort of book. But by the end, I have to admit, he pulled everything together. It's a pretty good read with a nice payoff....this might sound a little crazy, but it reminded me of LOST a bit. Probably the (though non-tropical) island shrouded in mystery. I mean, even a polar bear shows up. But don't go reading it and think you're going to have a LOST experience. That could be totally unique to me. :) In any case, I do recommend it.

Thank you so much! I will be looking forward to reading this one (after the first two, of course!).

Speaking of LOST, I finally watched Thursday's episode. The smoke monster was pretty awesome, but whatever happened to that polar bear? If they finish this show and don't explain about the polar bear, I'm going to be furious. Or did they already explain that?

I think it had something do with Dharma. That's all I've got.
