I liked this combination the most!

Still alive - An Update

I'm still alive!

My owner still isn't doing any interesting stuff, so I'm mainly reading and playing games. Here's an update on some of the things that happened.

I won a giveaway held by Susan Spann and I won a book, koi socks, candy, and a Japanese travel bag.

The book is signed to me!

We got a new trivia game as a present from friends and it's lots of fun.

We got amazing mail from Aimo.
My owner asked her if she could paint our character from the computer game Dragon Age Inquisition together with one of the other characters from the game. The result is absolutely wonderful! She also sent another drawing, and some swag featuring her artwork.

That's it for now.
I hope to have something fun to tell you about soon.

Halloween Zombies

The race pack for the Halloween Virtual Race from Zombies, Run arrived! Looks like we'll be walking instead of running this time, but I just couldn't miss out on a Halloween race.

More FairyLoot

I got myself another FairyLoot box!

FairyLoot is a monthly book subscription box that focuses on Young Adult fantasy literature. In every single one of their monthly boxes, you will receive a brand new Young Adult fantasy novel, 5-6 exclusive bookish goodies related to the theme of the box and other items sourced directly from the author.

If you ordered the August box and haven't received it yet, you might want to move on to avoid spoilers!

I was very excited for the arrival of the August box.
The theme was Other Worlds and this time I had no idea what the book might be.

I immediately opened the box and dove in to find what goodies were inside!

And again it was an amazing box, filled with loot and a cool books!

Here's a picture of all the loot.
I especially love the sword shaped Game of Thrones tea strainer and the Lord of the Rings magnetic bookmarks. I got two elves!

And this was the book that was in the box.
I already started on it and it's very mysterious and intriguing so far.

Yet another great box!
I will most certainly order another FairyLoot box in the future if the theme sounds cool enough.

A Zombie and a Present

Last Saturday we went to the fair.
There weren't any fun rides, but we did play a game and won a zombie!

The zombie is missing all kinds of body parts.
You can assemble the zombie to make him complete.

You can even make a game out of it by setting a timer and trying to assemble the zombie before time runs out and he falls apart again, but as it's tricky enough to get him assembled without the platform he's on turning and shaking, I'll practice a bit first before playing the timed game.

Yesterday I got a present.
I wonder what Lakrids means...

There was liquorice inside!
I got a chocolate covered liquorice and a jar full of Habanero Chili Liquorice. Yum!

Thanks, E.!

A Forest and a Monster?

Yesterday it promised to be a lovely day, so we went for a walk.

We wanted to go to a forest.
This might look like a forest, but it had a meadow on one side and a road on the other.

This looks more like it.
A sign that said we were entering a special nature zone with rules we had to follow as not to disturb the wildlife. I wonder what kind of wildlife.

As we entered the forest my owner told me a story about a forest monster.
Was the Forest Monster the wildlife we shouldn't disturb?

It was beautiful in the forest and i spotted mushrooms that looked like potatoes!

I did some climbing.

This small branch was more comfortable than it might look.

Another mushroom.

Then I heard a strange sound.
Like someone was munching on something!

I decided to investigate.
It could be the Forest Monster!

Nope, not here.

Hmm... If it is the monster, it's good at hiding.

Not in this tree.

Not here either.

More mushrooms.
But someone had clearly been munching on these!

And then I spotted the culprit!

It wasn't a monster:
It was Tiny, the luck elephant. He was curious about the mushrooms and decided to taste them. He said that shiitake mushrooms are tastier.

That mystery solved we continued our walk.

I spotted acorns!

Someone had munched on this acorn. It wasn't Tiny though.

We took a break in this lovely field of heather.

The weather was indeed lovely. Nice and sunny.
We had a lot of grey days lately, so we enjoyed the sun.

A really big mushroom.
I think it's a tinder fungus.

A really tiny mushroom.

After a wonderful walk we made our way back to the bus station to go home again.

But before we took a bus back home, we had something to eat.
Fries! Yum!

Awesome Mail

I had two awesome books in my mail, and I also received two beautiful cards from Eve.
