It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (January 13): 01/13/20
Last week was complicated by illness. First my husband, then our daughter, and now me. Now my husband is traveling to Denver for a math conference and I'm minding the house and kids while still sick. Fortunately the kids are teens and able and willing to help.
So far I'm sticking with my #art366 plan. My last couple drawings have been quick and a little shaky since I'm feverish.
Finally, I started a new painting of a green heron. I'm two hours into this project.

I love kids book recommendations! I need to set aside a day to talk about the ones I've been reading with my son. Happy reading!
Comment #2: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 23:28:00
I have more this week and will have more next week.

I've now seen Property of the Rebel Librarian on 2 blogs and it looks interesting.

Funny how coincidences work out. It was a Cybils nomination in 2018.

I admire that you are keeping up with your #art336 plan even you are sick! Feel better soon!
Wishing you a great reading week.
Comment #6: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 23:31:00
I hope I can paint tomorrow. I have projects I need and want to finish.
Comment #7: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 01:33:42
Hope you're feeling better. I've avoided getting sick this year, fingers crossed.
I really like the colors in the crane painting.
Comment #8: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 23:33:00
Thank you. I need to finish that painting soon. It's deadline is approaching.
Comment #9: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 01:34:32
Even with a fever those paintings look wonderful. Sorry you have all been sick. Wishing you better health in the coming week.

I just have an annoying sore throat, cough, and congestion now.
Comment #11: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 07:52:07
There is so much sickness going around. I feel like I'm in a safe zone now that I'm retired from my job in a primary school. All around me was coughing and sneezing at my school. No one could escape. I got sick every year.
I hope you feel better soon.
Your art work is so beautiful. It would be perfect for the building where we have our naturalist club meetings. It's too bad you do not live closer. They are looking for someone now after the remodel.
I like Designing California Native Gardens. I wonder if there is a similar book for Texas. I shall look.
Sending positive thoughts for healing.

We caught this thing from my in-laws. I'm guessing they caught it from the other set of grandchildren.
Paintings can be shipped. I could put together a proposal for your building.

How do you keep up with everything while you're sick?! What do you do with all of your paintings? I hope you're all back to normal soon!
Comment #14: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 23:38:00
I'm planning on reopening my Etsy shop. My goal is to sell most of them.
Comment #15: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 08:29:19
I hope you feel better soon. Looks like you've been reading some good books.
Comment #16: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 23:40:00
Thank you. I hope I can reach my reading goals this week but it's hard when sick.
Comment #17: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 09:53:46
Oh no! I hope you feel better soon. :(
Comment #18: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 23:41:00
Thanks. I appreciate it.
Comment #19: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 10:15:42
I'm sorry your family has been sick. I'm glad everyone is doing better and I hope you feel better soon too!
Your paintings are wonderful.
Do you like the Alex Erickson series? I started it and have to find time to go back and continue. I liked it.
Comment #20: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 23:42:00
Thanks. I'm the last one to still be sick. It's annoying. I'm happy you like my art. The sketches will be future paintings. The Alex Erickson series is weird but good enough to keep going.
Comment #21: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 11:17:58
Your art looks good, and so do your cozy mysteries. Enjoy them all!
Comment #22: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 23:45:00
Thank you. I just finished another good cozy: Freezer I'll Shoot.
Comment #23: Monday, January, 13, 2020 at 15:01:17
Hope you feel better soon. I'm coughing and lacking in energy but don't think I'm running a fever. As always, your art is great and your book selection amazing. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #24: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 23:46:00
The fever is gone but I'm still coughing and I'm not reading as fast this week.
Comment #25: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 17:09:26
So sorry to hear you have been smitten - I'm very impressed that you are still drawing even while feverish... I hope next week you will feel a lot better.
Comment #26: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 23:47:00
I hope so. The cough and congestion is annoying.
Comment #27: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 18:46:05
Your art is cool :) And a book about a librarian always sounds cool to me. I think the only one of your list I've read so far is Love/Hate Thing. I thought it was good :)
Comment #28: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 23:48:00
This librarian book is different from others I've read. The "librarian" is a middle schooler facing censorship in her school.
