It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (March 11): 03/11/19
It was another week of rain which meant staying inside when not running errands. With the weather I had plenty of time to work on my Climate Change series of gouache and acrylic paintings.
On Friday I had a solid day of teaching at the Sun Gallery. That means two different field trips from local schools. Each visit is two hours of solid teaching but there is also prep time and clean up. I have a similarly busy Friday scheduled for this week.
Today we briefly had sun and then it started hailing.
Readingwise, it was a good week. Some of these books were research for the summer camp I'll be teaching. I'm doing a week of birds and dinosaurs. Tentatively I'm calling it "Birds of a feather, dinosaurs together." I also finished two newly published books and a bunch of backlist stuff I've been meaning to read.

Wow, you're a very talented painter!
I am dying to read On the Come Up - I loved The Hate U Give so much.
Enjoy your books this week -

Now you also need to get On the Come Up.

Wow! Your paintings are fabulous. Can't wait to see the fourth one when it is done. You are so talented.
Lots of great books on your list. I should add Heartwood Hotel, Prose and Cons, and Comics Will Break Your Heart to my list.
Hope you have a great week.

I will share the fourth one when I'm finished. Heartwood Hotel: A True Home and Comics Will Break Your Heart are both delightful. I'm 67 pages into Prose and Cons and am enjoying it.

Hope you love Kid Gloves as much as I did.
Comment #10: Tuesday, March 12, 2019 at 21:10:00
I expect to. I've loved all her other books.

I love your idea for a climate change series of paintings. They look great hanging together! (and on their own, just impactful together)
To Night Owl from Dogfish looks good. Have a great week!
Comment #12: Monday, March, 11, 2019 at 21:16:00
I will post a review of To Night Owl from Dogfish shortly after I finish it.

We had hail recently, too. It always stuns me a little.
Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #14: Monday, March, 11, 2019 at 21:18:00
It's just unusual to have hail for an hour or more. There were areas nearby where it looked like it had snowed afterwards.
Thanks! They were fun to paint.

>The paintings look so good. I love all the colors. Have a great week!
Comment #16: Monday, March, 11, 2019 at 21:22:00
Thank you. I had fun painting them.

Nice looking books and art. We have rain in our forecast for this week. I suppose it will make a nice change from snow. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #18: Monday, March, 11, 2019 at 21:25:00
We have cold wind and clear skies. The wind after all that rain has brought down some trees.
Comment #19: Monday, March 11, 2019 at 17:33:55
We had a little hail this weekend too. Fun video! Love the sound of your camp topic!
Comment #20: Monday, March, 11, 2019 at 21:27:00
I know my video doesn't show it, but it was epic amounts of hail. There were areas nearby that looked like it had snowed. I'll post more about the camp topic as summer approaches.

How fun working with kids at a gallery. I think arts have become so overlooked in schools. Kids always enjoy getting a taste of it.
Comment #22: Monday, March, 11, 2019 at 21:30:00
This job is like no other I've had. It's fun and exhausting. Thankfully our district, and other local ones have continued to include the arts in schools.

Love the "rain hail" video, especially the conversation! We are having sun and a warming trend here in Massachusetts, but more rain coming Friday. Nights are cold, but days are getting warmer and longer, so spring will get here eventually! You definitely had a good reading week! I need to read Binti: Home too. I listened to the first book as an audio and really liked it.
Comment #24: Monday, March, 11, 2019 at 21:32:00
My video doesn't really show how much hail was actually coming down. A block away it ended up looking like we had gotten a couple inches of snow. There were even berms of hail at the nearby schools.
