Happy Tuesday Friends!
We are in the middle of another bout of very cold weather – it was minus 6 overnight – and we have weather warnings for heavy snow for later this week. I really hope that doesn’t happen but just in case, I did some food shopping today rather than leave it till Friday. Also any plans I had for working in the garden this week have been postponed because it’s just too cold.
Today’s Art . . .
Today’s art is twofold – the first is my March calendar page, which has been covered with gel printed collage paper, fresco chalk paint and some stencilling.
In the background there is my tall container of hot water and lemon. It’s actually the blender cup for the stick blender, but I also use it for lots of drinks not made in a blender.
and the second is one of the ATCs for #the100dayproject. Note that this photo contains lots of teacups for tea as well as the one that the kitty is sitting in! The name of this one is kit-tea. It still has to be stitched.
Currently Reading . . .
I’m currently reading this book by a new (to me) author Liv Andersson. It was unplanned and I just happened to come across it on Youtube.
TOTAL for 2023
32. JD Kirk – One for the Ages – DCI Logan #16
33. Shelley Burr – WAKE
34. Stacey Halls – The Familiars
35. Liv Andersson – Little Red House
So far I’ve enjoyed all of the books I’ve read/listened to this month. They are all quite different, the DCI Logan book is set in Scotland, but is book 16 in a series so I don’t recommend starting with that one, WAKE is set in country Australia and is a pretty engaging story if you like mystery and outback settings. The Familiars is set in England during the witch trials in the 1600s and finally the Little Red House is a mystery thriller set mostly in New Mexico and follows two storylines 20 years apart.
