It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (October 16): 10/22/18
I had a very busy week of reading, so much so, that I gave myself the weekend off. Five of the books I read for the Cybils. One of the books, Anywhere by Here is a DNF because I found the mother cruel, rather than charming. The rest of the books were for fun reading or research. Of course, I'm doing my road narrative spectrum project for fun, so there really isn't much of a difference.
I finished the portrait of Reggie the turkey.
I've started a painting of a macaw from a photograph I took about five years ago at the Oakland Zoo.
I sewed on some felt to help my daughter with her Mabel Pine's costume. Here she is showing off the new complete turtleneck.

You are getting through the books like one does before the Academy Awards. I love the Harry Potter movies but I lurve the books so much more.

I've only seen the first two movies and I stopped reading the series midway through book five.

>Wow, you've been busy! That's a LOT of books! Participating in the Cybil's sounds like fun.
Nice paintings, too - you are talented!

Thank you. The Cybils are both a lot of work and a lot of fun.

Ah, Tintin is great! I'm French, so I read tons of it when I was a kid. I saw the amazing exhibition on it when I was travelling through Quebec last year. I like your painting. I also paint, but almost exclusively on rocks. Here is my site, though I have not posted any of my latest rocks for ages...

I love your rocks, especially your bird rocks. I read that particular Tintin because John Steed was shown reading it in one of the early Avengers TV episodes. I would like to see Quebec sometime. I have family roots in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu.

Such catchy titles! I usually read the most in the evenings and on weekends as I take time off from the computer. Five books in five days is awesome. :-)

The five books are just the Cybils books. I read twelve in total which is a more than I usually do.

You had a busy week! Your daughter is too cute though. :)
I love the Vicki Delany series, although I haven't read the first book yet. Oops. Enjoy!

Have you read her lighthouse library series, written as Eva Gates?

I actually enjoyed Anywhere But Here...I also watched the movie, with Susan Sarandon as the mother.
Enjoy your week! Great art! Here are

Maybe it's better as a movie. I just couldn't get past the mother's behavior.

Great assortment of books. I'm a fan of Jim Butcher but want him to write faster. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #14: Monday, October 22, 2018 at 20:54:00
I read maybe a book and a half of his each year. He writes plenty fast for me!

I love how your daughter is dressed up as a character from her favorite show. I had to Google the name, LOL, as it wasn't familiar.
Thanks for the well wishes for my kid. She feels better body wise. Just dealing with a cough but she ran the mile today for PE and felt fine.
Comment #16: Monday, October 22, 2018 at 20:55:00
The show has been off air for a few year now but when it was on she said that if she ever got braces she would dress up as Mabel. Glad your daughter is on the mend.

You did great this week between your painting and reading. Hope this week is a good one for you.
Comment #18: Monday, October 22, 2018 at 20:57:00
Thank you. Today was busy doing chores and non-creative stuff. Tomorrow maybe!

I really enjoyed Louisiana's Way Home. I also remember really liking Anywhere But Here when I read it during college.
Comment #20: Monday, October 22, 2018 at 21:01:00
I hope to finish Louisiana's Way Home this week.
