Just a Minute in June

Tawny Owl making a lot of noise :p

Heard this owl during the week but couldn't get a good shot of it. If we hear it again we have to remember to turn the video on so people can at least hear what the owl sounds like :)

This month went by pretty fast, hardly remember what went on lol

Reading:

Finished a few books this month;

Sepulchre by Kate Mosse
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
Mr. Darcy's Diary by Amanda Grange
Futuretrack 5 by Robert Westall

Really enjoyed the Atwood book, very good and interesting read.

Art: I didn't manage to get a lot done artwise. Finished a tattoo commission and started on a few things. Have so many ideas sketched out or written down I don't think I will run out of things to draw for a few weeks

Watching:

Who's Line :D Something to watch while drawing



Music: Actually my music player has been on shuffle all month. Not really listening to anything in particular,. A bit of this, a bit of that :p From Kate Nash to Nickelback (and I admit to liking them. As much as people say they don't listen to them, they lie :p Same thing with James Blunt. Some people say they can't stand him but you hear them singing along to the songs when they think no one is listening :p)

Gardening: We are going to be eaten alive by all of the onions. Somebody send Bunnicula to help

Going insane: still trying to figure out knitting :p Seen these gorgeous crochet blankets that really make me want to try to learn to crochet again and try to make a blanket. I get the idea and technique behind crochet, just can't seem to make my fingers work right :p

More Just a Minute players here :)

Chrissy sent me some paper :) Thank you! Velour and Fisher paper to play with. Not sure what I am going to draw on them, but as soon as I finish the Foxgloves I will use this paper. hmmm thinking something fuzzy :p

The owl pic is great, well done on the capture.
You are welcome to the paper, something fuzzy on the velour would be good but be warned, it takes loads of layers, the sandpaper ..lol, fisher makes cp's act a lot like pastels.
I listen to Nickelback and James Blunt. But, then I listen to all sorts, I do want to get the latest Pink album.
It is a shame I am not a bit nearer, crochet is quite easy when you get the knack. You practice and then suddenly it all goes together.
Anyway, I'll shut up now, LOL

I love the sound of owls hooting at night.

How cool to see an owl - I've never seen one in the 'wild'. You sure do a lot of reading :) - I have got out of the way of it, too much crafting and watching TV : / (and blogging, hehe!!)

Jennifer Rose said...

hope you have a great July too Tina :D

Chrissy the new P!nk album is really good :D yeah sadly a bit of a drive to learn how to crochet :(

Sashi- thanks :)

Linda- thought we heard him the other day but couldn't see him :/

Alison- I wish I could read more, so many books I want to read :) but yeah blogging gets in the way lol ;)

i agree, june has flown by so quickly!

i have no idea how to set my camera for night-time shots. at least, we can see it's an owl...mine would have turned out a lot worse ~ :(

persevere with the knitting if you can. i've been yearning to crochet something too.

Michelle Eaton said...

June was very fast for me too.

I would like to learn to knit. I love the crochet baby blankets, and baby booties.

Jennifer Rose said...

serena, our camera has a night time shot but I think hubby had this on manual when he took the pic :) mine would have been worse too :) I'm determined to figure out the knitting thing, just need to find the time to practice now :)

Michelle- knowing how to knit and crochet would come in handy if a person was going to have a kid, save money on clothes and blankets :) Me, I just want to make all kinds of different bags :D
