Just a minute in July

I'm playing along with Jenaveve at her blog August Street for Just a minute. This month has gone by extremely fast.

365: with skeebie, who probably needs a name soon. For some crazy reason I decided to do a 365 project with my little cow. Now that I am getting in the habit of taking a picture a day its not so bad, but time will tell. :)

Reading: Finished 5 books this month. I am still trying to finish The Visitor by Sheri S. Tepper. I honestly have no idea if I like the book or not. Took forever for anything to happen and moved even slower then her other books. I think this is the longest in a while it has taken me to finish a book (working on over a month)

Rare Earth by Michael Asher
The Time of Singing by Elizabeth Chadwick
Midnight's Lair by Richard Laymon
Working Wonders by Jenny Colgan
Brimstone (Diogenes Trilogy, Book 1) by Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child

Drawing: Managed get some art done and a few things started. A paper experiment of some foxgloves:

And an Inukshuk:

I am still working on my eagles, labour of love? I have drawn out the line art for a few Halloween dragons that just needs to be refined. So not a bad month art wise.


Freaking out: about college. ok not really :p but not sure what to think. Have an induction day on the 27th and I have to get up at 5:30 o.0 to catch the bus on time '>.<'

Playing: Golf. Lots of golf on the Xbox.Pretty much the only game that I can kick butt at :p If I actually played I would get kicked out for swearing too much lol

Fitness: I no longer look like a drunk walking downtown. Can walk about 2 miles before I do start looking like a stumbling fool lol Lost about half a stone this month, a bit more to go. And I am going to be girly and say I want to lose the weight so I can fit into my vintage coat. Ok so there is the health thing but I love that coat lol

(and this is about the third time I have written this. Blogger is acting funny :/ so hopefully this works now)

EDIT: MR.F thinks google are playing "silly b*gg*rs" with blogger :P

Looks like you had a great month.

You read so many books. I am not a very fast reader, but I have been slowly getting quicker with the more books I read.

ALex and I have been playing a lot of those sport games on the Wii, which is heaps of fun.

Both the pieces you have are awesome, although I do have to admit that I'm really taken with the inukshuk. Reminds me of visiting cottage country and seeing all the ones people built by the road and along the waterways... good times. :)

Still looking forward to the eagle! (I've got a "labour of love" or two on the drawing board myself :p )

Very pretty flower drawing. Wish I was so good.

How funny, I finished about 5 books this month too!

Finding it hard to review them though, they've seemed to jumble all into one in my brain!

I knew I should've reviewed them after finishing each one!

Serena said...

LOVE your Inukshuk drawing! You've had quite a busy and productive month ~ :)

Tweed Delights said...

Sounds like a busy, creative month - love the flower pic :)

Jennifer Rose said...

Michelle- I would love a Wii, but they are still too much money here :/

Rita- thanks :D I really like how the inukshuk looks too :) I remember the same thing! use to see them all the time going up north :)

Carla- thank you :) Just practice, practice is all it takes :)

Serena- thanks :D

Alison- thank you :)

Sandy said...

Wow, that drawing turned out great.

Jennifer Rose said...

thanks Sandy :D

I hate 'growing out' of my favourite clothes. I used to have a long sweeping black wool coat. Maybe I looked like a goof in it, but I felt like I'd stepped in from another century. I miss that coat soooo much.

Jennifer Rose said...

i would have loved a coat like that Ingrid :D doesn't matter what other people think about the clothes a person wears its how they make the person wearing them feel :)
