Friday Wrap-up: Horticulture, Hamilton and Hot Air

Filed under: Books, family, Nature — liberrydwarf @ 6:08 pm

The week that was! (And I’m enjoying doing very little at the moment, so it’s a bit tricky!)

1) One Good Thing: We’re not under flood waters or anything here on the outskirts of Brisbane (though we’re at the bottom of an easement so the front yard does become a bit of a lake at times!) but we finally had 2 dry days in a row and got the front lawn mowed. For, like, the first time in a month. I no longer expect Tarzan-yodeling neighbours in loincloths every time I go out to take the rubbish to the bin 🙂

2) One Bad Thing: I guess it’s my own fault, but I keep reading Anita Blake novels and being morosely disappointed by the complete lack of character progression and anything interesting happenning at all. (This week it was The Harlequin, which someone else swore to me was “kind of a bit cooler than normal”.) Maybe I should go back to Harry Dresden novels. I’d welcome any suggestions!

3) One Thing I Learned: my aunt taught my brother and I a different diaphragm breathing technique (she said as a punk singer and a pregnant lady we’d probably both benefit for different reasons!) It was funny, but all of a sudden it WORKED, where years and years of singing lessons hadn’t taught me a thing about breathing. Now if only they’d taught me decent pitch…


  1. You should definitely go back to Harry Dresden. “The Harlequin” was the one that finally put me off the series for good.

    But if you want to keep the sex and have character development, too (greedy ^.~) – have you read anything by Nalini Singh?

    • Hmm, might do – I know kalafudra says great things about Nalini Singh!
