I know, I know…I’ve missed a week again! Recently I’ve felt like blogging has been at the bottom of my to-do list 🙁 BUT I do still have 7 photos to share with you from the last couple of weeks!
1. My current read is To Kill A Mockingbird. As much as I love reading, I have just never had the chance to read this book. However, my Mum was re-reading it when she came to visit at Christmas so she left me her copy…published in 1976!!!
I’ve been drawn in by another painting book. I’ve been on the lookout for one for a while as the ones I got from the library a while ago just weren’t what I needed. When I draw or paint, I have to use a photo of whatever the subject is. I’ve never been any good at drawing what is in front of me; it’s just the way my mind processes images. Even if I sit with a view ahead of me, I find it easier to take a photo of that view and then use the photo as a guide…I hope that makes sense!
Aaaaaaahhh adult colouring books. All of a sudden it’s cool to be colouring in these books. As a teacher and crafty person, I’ve always loved crayons, colouring and drawing. I’m actually quite pleased that more people are embracing their creativity. I was intrigued to try one out so I requested The Time Garden by Daria Song from Blogging For Books to review.
This book by Samantha Hayes and is my most recent pick from Blogging For Books. What You Left Behnd is a crime thriller book, which is one of my favourite genres. I have had the book for a while now and I must admit that it took me a good few chapters to get interested in the storyline. But, once I was hooked, I could not put it down and read the rest of the book quickly!
I’m still getting used to the cooking styles and tastes that come from the Southern States. Most things I have loved but some things have just blown my mind because I just never seen them before. When this Lighten Up, Y’all cookbook by Virginia Wells became available for review on Blogging For Books, I snapped it up quickly!
