Stacking the Shelves #16, Sunday Post and Sunday Salon #16
It's the weekend, so it must be time to enjoy a few of my favorite book memes.
Stacking the Shelves is hosted every Saturday by Marlene @ Reading Reality and promotes sharing books you actually received during the week - library, purchase, ARC, gift, etc. as well as what you think you might read in the upcoming week. The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer and is a place to share posts, reviews, personal updates, etc. The Sunday Salon hosted by Deb @ ReaderBuzz is a similar format. Join me in visiting the wide array of book blogs in the world.

No news is good news, right? Just living life - go to work, come home and chat with hubby, read, blog. Rinse and repeat.
Oh yeah, planning is beginning for trip to Puerto Vallarta in October with kids and their wife/girlfriend. That should be fun!
A SKETCH BY TERRIE PURKEY -
A few weeks ago I mentioned that I liked to sketch and several of you commented that you also liked to draw/sketch. I thought I'd share some of my fave sketches for the next few weeks. I belong to Urban Sketchers Seattle (most major cities have a chapter) and it has SO enriched my life. Great people, great experiences, even for a novice like me.
Urban Sketchers originated in Seattle by Gabi Campanario when he first moved to Seattle and wanted a way to record his new city. Started in 2009 as a nonprofit, it is now an international organization. Take time to explore the huge variety of sketch artists!
The main criteria for Urban Sketching is that it be done in person - any subject, any style, but drawn in the moment, not from a photo. This is sketched in pen & watercolor.
This is a church in Oslo, sketched while perched on a nearby window ledge in about 20 minutes. (color added later)
Let's see your sketches!
Hope you have a most excellent upcoming week and hopefully finding time to enjoy a good book. Looking forward to visiting as many as I can again this week!
