So I was inspired to do something crafty and creative again. Was the need to be creative a result of my first Artist Date, the gathering on Monday or a combination of both?
via Take care of your thoughts — Zen Flash This post appeared in my Reader feed today and it reminded me how damaging both our thoughts and words can be - to ourselves and others. Worth re-blogging as a Sunday reflection, my version of a Sunday sermon. Taking care is an act of awareness. It … Continue reading Taking care is an act of awareness
I'd like to share an excerpt from the book with you so you can get a sense of it.
In this post, I want to share some insights into my "Documenting a 100 Happy Days Project" eBook.
The countdown begins. I am about to publish my first eBook on Everyday Delights. The book is called "Documenting a 100 Happy Day Project" which is a compilation of posts from my first blog in 2015. That original blog site has now disappeared. This book is a two part compilation of those stories and high-quality photographs from 2015 written for the blog.
I was browsing through a list of writing prompts - looking for inspiration. I came across the one that asks what my superpower would be or what my superhero name would be. Then I remembered that I'd asked my family that same question and written about it a while back, but never posted it. Here's … Continue reading What would your superpower be?
My shop page has been languishing in the dark for so long. I thought I would bring it back into the light! I launched my Documenting a 100 Happy Days eBook about a year ago, a little prematurely. Over the next few days, I'll re-blog the details about my eBook. I'll also be offering the eBook … Continue reading Seeing the light of day: my shop is live!
As part of my new daily post themes, this is my first post for my new Monday Musings - ruminations, cogitations, dreams, thoughts and musings about daily life - all the while searching for those hidden Everyday Delights. I love public holidays. They are little oases of space amidst the routine of normal life. Just perfect … Continue reading “Bee-ing”
Autumn greetings, readers! Do you feel the need to update your blog occasionally to keep it fresh and engaging? In South Africa, it's early autumn not spring! But I felt the need to do a little spring cleaning on my blog this weekend and to re-structure a little bit. We've had a few public holidays recently. I … Continue reading A Blog Spring Clean
Musings on engaging with books in different media…
To read real books or electronic books? The best of both worlds?
Paardje has put into words exactly what I tend to do subconsciously. Like her, I love the smell and feel of real books and I love to add sticky notes and underline passages in my favourite colour pens until my books become “well-loved”… But that happens less with fiction books, which I do read on my Kindle, especially when I am travelling.
This is a situation where both work well, and I don’t need to stress about making an either-or choice. It is possible to have the best of both worlds!
I have a Kindle fire tablet that I’ve had since early 2012. There are already a gazillion books on there but, honestly, I use it for games 80% of the time 😏
Recently when I asked my daughter whether she wanted ebook versions of the series she’s reading now she immediately responded with “No, I want to be able to smell them” 😄
The succinctness of her response made me take an honest look at what I have been denying myself ever since I came to Batam- the pleasure of my 1st love: real, physical books ❤️ It might seem silly but the feel of a real book in my hands just adds another level of pleasure to the reading experience.
