It’s been over a month since I posted anything. I’ve had ideas for reviews of both books and healthy food, I just haven’t had the motivation. I need to get back on track.
Here are some highlights from life in the past month +:
Swimming – Mike and I have started going to the pool at our local recreation center on Saturday mornings. It has been wonderful for our joints. We didn’t go last week when I had the flu. This week we went to a comic book show instead. Next week we plan to go to North Port Aquatic Center to check out their pool and lazy river. Can’t wait.
The Winners by Frederik Backman – I had the pleasure to read the upcoming third book in the Beartown series. I am a a big fan of Mr. Backman. His books are wonderful. A review of the book is in the works and will be posted closer to the expected publishing date of September 27, 2022.
Cozy mysteries – I’m on a cozy mystery reading kick. I love to go on Amazon and find the first book in a cozy mystery series to see if I want to read the whole series.
Crafts – I haven’t been crafting as much. I’ve been craft brainstorming but haven’t done much more. I’m starting to feel a little inspiration to get ready for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas crafts. Stay tuned, there may be a how-to video or two in the works.
Trying to stay cool – I’ve not been successful. It is has been pretty freakin’ hot since what feels like forever. Can’t wait for “cool” weather.
We were off work last week doing work around the house. In between chores and projects, I spent some time crafting. I am really enjoying crocheting. I’m getting more confident in my skills. I participated in a mystery crochet-along. The parts of the crochet pattern came out every other day. At the end we had a finished product. Here’s some pictures of the crafts I worked on this week.
Hopefully I’ll be back to regular posts this week.
Today’s doodle mixes pencil and ink on mixed media paper. I shaded the butterfly with a No. 2 pencil. The outlines and lettering were done with a .08 micro liner. The pink background was done with a Dollar Tree gel pen. It is no surprise that I call this doodle Fly Free.
My doodle for day 7 illustrates another way to draw. I’m learning how to use Procreate on my iPad. I drew this gnome using several different brushes in the Procreate app. The hat was done with a textured brush. Doodling doesn’t have to be on paper. You can create electronic doodles too.
Have you tried any drawing apps? What is your favorite? Please, share your work.
