Shadow and Buddy both like to help me work.
This week they were more interested in the monitors than the keyboard.
I’ve read 13 books so far this year as of today, according to goodreads. Two are ROOT (read our own tomes) reads. Two are from my NetGalley queue. They range from the predicable — fantasy and crafting — to the surprise, a book of poetry. I’d recommend the majority, though have found each a valuable time commitment for various reasons.
However I’ve written zero words to review these titles. I don’t really have any good reason as to why. My schedule has been variable these past few weeks and I’m hopeful things will soon settle down so I can return to the habit of regular review writing.
Have you read anything recently that’s excited you?
I have loved colouring books for a very long timeˆ though for reasons unknown I’ve not discussed them here. I even brought a couple of books and crayons with me to college (along with a milk crate of records, but that’s another story). I’ve been delighted by the rise of adult colouring books (This one looks amazing).
Last year’s doodle project lead to a discovery that I love watercolours. I’ve been slowly updating my supplies and tools, a few weeks ago I added a round #1 brush to my kit, this allows for fine detail work.
It’s exciting to combine the two.
I’m able to practice mixing and painting with different ratios of paints and water. I’m able to practice mixing enough paint to cover an area. I’m able to practice ways to fix where the paint didn’t work out as I expected.
Yes, there are colouring books that are watercolour friendy, however, I’m enjoying this low cost & low risk way to meditate and relax.
Do you enjoy colouring books? How do you like to colour them?
ˆ few things make me feel old. I’m definitely not! For unknown reasons, this year, this anniversary has touched me deeply.
Cats love boxes. My cats are no exception.
Shadow loves to explore them, but by-and-large doesn’t need to be in small encloses spaces, unless it’s the blankets on the bed. Then he’s snuggled deep under them come winter or summer.
Buddy, on the other hand, loves small spaces where he can hide and watch the world.
While I was cleaning up yesterday, he took over one of the boxes and had a ball watching me reorganize.
I’ll work on a few new hiding places for him. He likes the novelty.
