About a year ago, I got a crystal ball, or lens ball (people use both terms, apparently interchangeably), to play with photographically, because I had seen so many amazing photos using them that I was jealous, and wanted to try my hand. They are available in a variety of places, including Amazon, so getting one was not hard at all.
I read about Casey Cep’s Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee in a review magazine I got at my local library more than a year ago. When I first read the review, I marked it as a book that sounded interesting, but never did more than that. Recently I rediscovered the title on my “to read” list and decided to give it a shot.
After seeing a lot of positive talk about Dan Rather’s “What Unites Us” on Twitter, on the spur of the moment one day I decided I wanted to read it, and bought myself a copy. Because I bought the book for my Kindle, I was able to start reading right away. I’m glad I did.
“Before We Were Yours”, by Lisa Wingate, is a work of fiction. It is, however, based on true events, real people, and their stories.
It’s so easy to make a bird feeder using a plastic soda bottle you can do it in three steps and five minutes, and you don’t need any special supplies or talents. They’re functional and good looking, and what more could you ask for?
I was recently given the gift of yoga. Literally. For my birthday, I was given 10 yoga classes at a yoga studio, along with a yoga mat, yoga mat cleaner, and a box of salt (yes, you read that right) to condition the mat prior to using it for the first time. Sounds like a great gift, huh? It probably is, but I’m not a yoga person.
