It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
Hosted by Kathryn of Book Date.

I had plans to go hiking to try out my new lens in the wild. The most I accomplished photographically was pictures in my yard and from my car. There were two reasons for this: torrential rain for the entire week, and my son home from the school for Tuesday through Thursday. With my husband traveling for business I didn't have much opportunity to get away for photography.

I did manage to make progress with my sketchbook. I have exactly one page left, plus the cover, should I decide to decorate it.
