Last weekend was a lot of fun with Greyson home and some excellent pool time and crisping in the sun. This week was challenging at work (aren't they all?), and this weekend Greyson was back to his dad's, so I spent a great deal of time in bed coloring, reading, and watching Gilmore Girls.
I had my bestie from work over to the house on Friday night. We had quite a few adult beverages and were fairly silly. Yesterday I started coming down with a summer cold. Aren't they the worst? So much for breathing!
There's been much coloring going on. The pic above is detail from a page in The Secret Garden, by Johanna Basford. This booger was so intricate, it took me a week to color it all.
These three are from this weekend. The sugar skulls are both printable pages I used because I wanted to play with a new marker set I picked up this week without worrying that they'd bleed through to the next page. The skull with the octopus wrapped around in the back left is from The Tattoo Coloring Book by Oliver Munden an Jo Waterhouse.
Follow me on Instagram if you're interested in more coloring (and makeup and kids and selfies and life).
On the reading front, I've picked up my game just a tad. Right now I'm in the middle of Between the World and Me by Ta-Nahesi Coates, and I am eating up every word. I'm also still listening to Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire. I really only listen to it while I'm coloring at lunch, so an hour here and an hour there.
Finally, I jumped back into some comics this weekend. I read issues #15 and #16 of Lumberjanes which were especially delightful. I have plenty more waiting...Jem and the Holograms, Gotham Academy, and Edward Scissorhands.
This time next weekend, we'll be on our way to Gulf Shores, Alabama for a 5-day beach vacation. I haven't been to the beach in years, and I've never been to Gulf Shores, so we're terribly excited. I may not be very active on the blog, but I'll keep you all up to speed on the sand, surf, and food over on Instagram.
Tally ho! Have a good week, y'all!
