It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (January 28): 01/28/19
Last week was the Blood Wolf Moon. It was also raining. But the rain stopped long enough to get a few shots close to totality.
This week I was busy working on my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project. I'm about a third of the way finished with the book. I have to get it back to Brooklyn by March 30th.
Page 8 shows a sketch of King Tut the cockatoo who used to be a greeter at the San Diego Zoo. Page 9 shows some of my other favorite birds at that zoo: the jungle fowl, the flamingo, the shoe bill, and the secretary bird.

Wow, you did those paintings? I'm impressed! You're quite talented.
I couldn't stay up late enough to see the Blood Wolf Moon lol. Would love to see your pics.
Enjoy your books this week -

I did those paintings. Thank you. The Blood Wolf Moon happened at about 8 PM our time which made staying up for it easy.
Comment #3: Thursday, January 24, 2019 at 10:38:39
I love that first landscape painting.
Comment #4: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:01:00
Thank you. It was fun to paint.
Comment #5: Sunday, January, 27, 2019 at 18:42:23
Nice! Hope you have a good one :)
Comment #6: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:03:00
Thanks. It's a busy one because I'm single parenting again this week.
Comment #7: Sunday, January, 27, 2019 at 23:34:39
Love the bird sketches. Gorgeous. Moon photo is really striking. Happy reading this week.
Comment #8: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:05:00
Thank you. Last year I got better photos of the lunar eclipse but this time it was cloudy and raining. The bird sketches were fun to do.
Comment #9: Monday, January 28, 2019 at 08:26:52
I took photos of the moon, too. I haven’t looked at them yet, and I doubt they turned out, but at least the moon was pretty. Have a great week!
Comment #10: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:07:00
The moon is tricky to photograph but it sure puts on a great show.
Comment #11: Monday, January 28, 2019 at 09:09:00
I love all the books Laura Childs writes. I just "discovered" the Cackleberry Club and enjoyed the one I read.
Great paintings. I especially loved King Tut.
Hope you have a great week!
Comment #12: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:11:00
The first Cackleberry Club book I read didn't completely win me over. I'm trying one more to see if its a series I want to keep reading.
Comment #13: Monday, January 28, 2019 at 09:39:06
Why is it I've never heard of Blood Wolf Moon?? Your post prompted me to do research. In an Absent Dream caught my eye. Enjoy your reading week!
Comment #14: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:15:00
All the full moons seem to have names. Blood just means a lunar eclipse. I don't know all the names. In an Absent Dream is the fourth book. The first one is Every Heart a Doorway
Comment #15: Monday, January 28, 2019 at 10:24:03
Great sketches! Your books are very tempting...enjoy. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.
Comment #16: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:18:00
Thank you. This week is already shaping up to be a good one for reading.
Comment #17: Monday, January 28, 2019 at 10:43:37
I have Naomis Too on my #mustread list and am hoping to also squeeze in All Summer Long at some point. I really hope you enjoy The Remarkable Adventures of Coyote Sunrise!! Have a wonderful reading week, Sarah!
Comment #18: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:20:00
Naomis Too didn't wow me as much as the first one did. The pacing seemed off. I hope you enjoy it. All Summer Long was delightful, and set in my husband's home town.
Comment #19: Monday, January 28, 2019 at 11:17:58
Too cloudy for us to see the moon that night. Glad you got a shot in.
Comment #20: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:24:00
I took about two hundred shots of the moon and the clouds. Of those maybe fifty or so came out. I picked the best of the bunch. Sorry you missed it.
Comment #21: Monday, January 28, 2019 at 12:30:17
We got to see the Blood Wolf Moon at the beach. Unfortunately the photos on my iPhone were terrible... think I need to invest in a real camera. Have a good week!
Comment #22: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:28:00
I used an Olympus EP-L 8. It's a mirrorless camera. Nice cameras are affordable if you wait for clearance sales and are willing to use a camera that's one or two models behind the latest and greatest.
Comment #23: Monday, January 28, 2019 at 12:43:33
Looks like you had a great week. I love the sketches. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #24: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:31:00
Thank you re the sketches.
Comment #25: Monday, January 28, 2019 at 16:10:35
You have some fun looking reads listed. See what I read at Girl Who Reads
Comment #26: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:33:00
The were fun reads. This week is turning out good too for reading.
Comment #27: Monday, January 28, 2019 at 18:42:04
Love the moon pic! And White Rabbit, as well as Nancy Drew Diaries (glad they're keeping Nancy going for new generations).
Comment #28: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:34:00
I'll be diving into White Rabbit soon. I just picked up a bunch of vintage 1930s Nancy Drew books from my local bookstore. I'll be reading them soon.
Comment #29: Monday, January, 28, 2019 at 21:46:50
Your sketches are awesome!
Comment #30: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:37:00
Thanks! I will share more next week as well as updates on my landscape I'm painting.
Comment #31: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 13:14:13
Love the titles on those cozy mysteries.
Thanks for sharing and for coming by my blog.
Comment #32: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:39:00
I love a good cozy.
Comment #33: Wednesday, January, 30, 2019 at 00:05:50
What a great list this week. Some I've seen before and would totally enjoy like Nancy Drew Diaries and The Secrets of Winterhouse. Body on Baker Street also looks neat.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #34: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 23:40:00
Before you read The Secrets of Winterhouse, read Winterhouse. The Body on Baker Street is the second book but these cozies seem pretty episodic.
