The Reading Drive, etc

Hiya! Just thought I’ve give you a heads up. The Subeta Twitter account just recently posted an update hinting at an upcoming Reading Drive (game is here). It’s probably not just yet but it’s good to be prepared. The Reading Drive reward shop gets some really cool new items in it each year. To get points for the shop, you need to turn in one copy of as many books as you can.

One tool that helps is using the SubetaLodge book list and ticking off any books you already have in stock, stored in your vault or a shop or something. Then just sort by price and hopefully stock up on many books like that.

Another tip is to use Wizard Tokens at Veta Lake’s vending machine, Blue Sky. It gives out books too.

I had originally sent this info to Melissa from Teahouse who’s also a Subeta player, and then thought it would be nice to share it with you all too. ^__^

Personal updates


  • second round of meds and injections (for chronic form of/damage from, Lyme’s Disease)
  • went outside for the first time in ages in order to be driven to a big town hospital for a brain scan. Results are encouraging, as the radios showed no signs of tissue lesions. It could mean that there is no permanent damage done to the brain. Phew!


  • celebrated by sister’s birthday (Hi Saffy!)
  • my Mum went to see a specialist and found out she has Fibromyalgia and Arthritis. Here again a relief to actually have it properly diagnosed and official.
  • had a home visit from Dr. B.
  • got BAPTISED at last!
  • celebrated Easter
  • began round three of treatment


  • saw Dr. T.
  • Teahouse Message Board was created in May 2006, by Jeannie & Lisa! And tomorrow, May 19th 2011, is Teahouse’s Opening Day anniversary, after it was reopened to the public May 2007, better than ever! ๐Ÿ˜€
  • shaved my head ’cause I couldn’t wash my hair regularly enough again. The up side is that I actually look pretty cool with just 3 millimeters of hair!
  • watched documentary Waiting For Superman (on, which I highly recommend to anyone interested in children’s education, teaching, or the US.

So, anyway… If you were wandering why I disappeared and have been so rude, especially to my affiliate friends, that’s more or less the outline of the past couple of months.

  1. Joanna! It’s wonderful to hear from you! I’ve been keeping you in my prayers. How are you doing?
    Thank you. ^U^ Yes, my family is moving back to the States! I’m excited about it, but I’m also unsure because we don’t know which State to move to yet. The future is up in the air at the moment. My dad will be retiring and looking for a new job. Where we go depends on where my dad finds work. I’m praying the Lord will lead us to the right place. And I’m hoping there will be an ideal university nearby for me to attend.
    I will of course continue to share my creativity and little adventures with you on my blog. ^U^
    Love, Suzy

  2. Hi Jo! Thanks for your kind comment again ๐Ÿ™‚ So much has happened to me in these few months, and after reading your post I realized that it was the same for you too ๐Ÿ˜€ Congrats on your baptism! I can’t wait to receive mine, too, but I’ll have to wait a few more years ๐Ÿ˜›
    I’m glad your results came out good! Take care!


  3. Hi Jo! I got your messages on flickr and I am so sorry if I forgot to tell you my new address. I really thought I had left a comment but I may have forgot. I feel terrible about it. I should have double-checked.

    How have you been doing lately? I’m studying for a big test, and I’ve been sewing a bunch. I’m working on a tunic now that I’m really excited about. It’s my first project with buttonholes. ๐Ÿ˜€ On the 4th my family celebrated Independence Day. We spent the day at a carnival where we watched an air show and fireworks. I can’t wait until I’ve finished my final school test so that I can relax and enjoy the summer. I feel like it’s going by too fast.

  4. Hiii ๐Ÿ™‚ I should check your website more often XD I don’t know if you read my message on FB… It seems that this always happens to me, after I email you or something I then find an update in here.

    A lot has happened in those three months! I’m happy that your scan came out good ๐Ÿ™‚ Congratulations on your baptism too. Your new haircut sounds interesting XD you have a lot of will power to shave your head!

    Glad to get an update from you ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hugs and kisses!
