Recent library finds:

  • Paper to Petal: 75 Whimsical Flower Ideas to Craft By Hand by Rebecca Thuss // I’m not crafting anything whimsical by hand at the moment… but this book is a great visual reference for a painting class I am taking (Pam Garrison’s Painting Petals class)
  • Cat Says Meow and Other Animalopoea by Michael Arndt // This book is incredibly clever.
  • Fabulous Fishes by Susan Stockdale // Grace really likes the illustrations in this one, and I like the little reference guide at the back.  Apparently the real, common name for pufferfish is… pufferfish.  And they’re poisonous.
  • The Plant Recipe Book by Baylor Chapman // I own the Flower Recipe Book (and love it), so I thought I’d borrow the plant version from the library.  I like this one mostly because I am pretending that a. It’s not winter, and b. I can keep plants alive for more than a week.  Like Paper to Petal, this is a great reference for painting.
  • Anything in the Peas series by Keith Baker // Grace’s cousins got her one of these books for Christmas and we’ve been hooked on the whole series.  Just last week I caught Grace “reading” to Clark, “We are peas!  Alphabet peas!  We work and play in the A-B-Cs!”  
  • I stumbled upon an entire child development section in the children’s library at our local branch in Southie.  It’s skewed a bit older than our children, but I could see it being really helpful in the future (there were a lot of books about helping your children succeed in school, etc.).  
  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee // I tried to finish Go Set a Watchman, but I just couldn’t hang.  And I sort of feel like maybe it shouldn’t have been published, especially if it wasn’t intended to be published.  Starting it made me want to re-read To Kill A Mockingbird (one of the very few books I can stand to re-read), though.  So, so good. 

Cleary I don’t read much in the way of normal and grown-up books anymore… but hey.  I know a tiny bit more about pufferfish.  So, there’s that.
