We actually have commercials here with the Pope advertising himself!
Our entire area is on alert for the Pope's visit. We are about an hour away from where the Pope will be but everything will be shut down. Bridges...train stations...schools...offices...either shut down or people are working from home or rerouted. It's amazing! Thankfully it won't start until Friday night. We were at dinner on Saturday night and the hostess told us she has school on Saturday but her school is closed on Saturday because of the Pope's visit and she has to drive into the heart of Philadelphia to make up her class! And that's the weekend my sister is stopping by! She and her husband are in NYC and they have to drive through this stuff to get here!
Paula and the Pope! Oh me oh my!
Reading this and it's so magically delicious! I learned a new term.
thaumaturge /ˈθɔːməˌtɜːdʒ/ noun...it is pronounced "thawmaturge"
(rare) a performer of miracles; magician
Word Origin...from Medieval Latin thaumaturgus, from Greek thaumatourgos...miracle-working.
The thing about this fantasy is that Zacharias is a magician/thaumaturge. And magic is disappearing and he has to fix it. It's just really engrossing and just plain good! I do love a good fantasy!
Then Ti reviewed a book that sounded so good and I have it and I want to read it...so as soon as I finish my thaumaturge book I want to bump it up!
