I finished reading “Making a Life” by Deanne Fitzpatrick this week. It was an excellent quick read.

I am also reading “Mary Oliver – New and Selected Poem” volume one.  I don’t normally read poetry.  I picked this book up because I was told she wrote nature poems.   Well some are, and some aren’t.  Some start out that way and end out in dark places related to the human condition.  So depending what you’re after, some may appeal to you while others leave you wanting.

I also purchased ”Yum and Yummer” by Greta Podleski.  I have a cookbook addiction.  I sold fully two thirds of my cookbooks before we moved…or more.  I’m down to four linear feet of cookbooks.  But when my doctor relative suggested “Yum and Yummer” I sat up and took notice.  I found the cookbook in the Truro, NS Coles bookstore on my way through town Monday.  It’s great!

This cookbook has everything a great cookbook needs – thorough ingredient lists and easy to read instructions, a kitchen wisdom section at the bottom of the page, gorgeous full page photos, and QR codes you can scan for 1 minute videos on how to prepare the recipes.  We tried Cauliflower, Chickpea & Sweet Potato Curry.  It really was “Yum and Yummer”!

I was away this week and did nothing creative.  I did share my work with my relatives and one of them shared her work with me.  It was a fun time, but too short.

I am looking forward to planning a day retreat this September.  Hubby wants to do some cycling with friends  I’m going along for the ride and fun. While they’re cycling, I’ll be sketching and rug hooking.

Well if you have been, thanks for reading.  Have a great weekend everyone!
