It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (December 09): 12/09/19
Last week we had days of rain. In between the storms, I was able to venture out to Dry Creek Cottage to photograph the gardens and do some birdwatching. It's a lovely place on the border between Hayward and Union City.
What I read:
Reading was slow for me. I've been spending my time baking and running errands. I had to go to the blood pressure clinic; my blood pressure was low. I'm probably done with going to the clinic for now. Also there was the walk at Dry Creek Cottage which generated a hundred or so photographs which I worked on.
What I'm reading:

I love the Dry Creek Cottage Gardens!
Enjoy all those books and your week.

I can imagine that you would like Dry Creek Cottage.

The photos are amazing and so are your paintings. So creative.

The gardens are lovely!
Wishing you a great reading week

Yes they are. They're always a delight to visit. I'd go every week if I could.

I love your art - the egret is lovely... And isn't the scenery absolutely beautiful? Though you can keep the rain - we have enough of our own! I hope the coming week is a good one for you, Sarah.

I would love to keep the rain. We certainly need it. I will finish the egret this week. I have a new exciting project to start.

Beautiful photograph. I can see that it'd be a great place for birdwatching.

If you're ever in the East Bay — you should visit. The cottage grounds are lovely.

Dry Creek looks like it is a beautiful place to visit and photograph!
I am glad you are feeling better. :)
Comment #14: Monday, December 09, 2019 at 21:15:00
Dry Creek is one of my favorite local photography spots. I'm glad I'm feeling better too. Thanks!

I'm impressed that you've got your up soon reading list all mapped out! I'm terrible at sticking to a TBR list- I just pick up things at random, it seems.
Comment #16: Monday, December 09, 2019 at 21:17:00
I keep all ten slots of "currently reading" filled on Goodreads. It's not exactly a map but it gives me something to focus on. I have done random reading before and I probably will again some day.

The paintings are so much fun. Pride Shoes is one I especially like.
We've had so many birds at our feeders lately. I saw real bluebirds one day and I also saw some sort of pretty yellow songbird another.
I'm eager to read the new Jason Reynolds book.
I wonder what they do for low blood pressure.
Have a lovely week.
Comment #18: Monday, December 09, 2019 at 21:20:00
I need to get proper feeders for my yard. I had them at the condo but they didn't survive the move.
I was being checked for high blood pressure. Had it been high, I would have needed medication. Since it was in the normal range and not borderline, I don't need medication. Very low blood pressure is a different problem — and can mean the need for iron supplements or other treatments.

We have had storms too - snow storms. I'm already tired of winter and we have months to go yet. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #20: Monday, December 09, 2019 at 21:24:00
California had snow too, but not where I live. We're too close to the coast to get snow except on very rare occasions.
Comment #21: Monday, December 09, 2019 at 17:12:06
I love your paintings! Your books look good. Enjoy and have a great week!
Comment #22: Monday, December 09, 2019 at 21:27:00
Thank you. I'll have new art to share next week.
Comment #23: Monday, December 09, 2019 at 21:15:13
That looks like a beautiful area!
