The Recorder Fun Book: for Young StudentsThe Recorder Fun Book: for Young Students by Larry E. Newman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Of all the books I picked up when I decided to play the recorder, this one wins. I needed something fun. All those kid or folk songs to get you going are here. The pictures that are fun alongside the instructions of notes, breath, and tongue articulating kept me going.

Unlike reading books, this one I had to take two steps forward then one step back. But in the end I have played from every page. I think eventually I will buy the paper version to fall back on later. Meanwhile, I have many other beginner books to try out.

If you don’t read music, this book could be for you. Having the tune in your head helps you know if you’re playing it right.

Escapist Coloring Club


Here is my entry for July coloring fun.

Now that I have my hobby room things like coloring are a lot more fun.

Thank you, Linda G. Hill for the Escapist Coloring Club prompt to pull out the crayons colored pencils, and pens.

Here is the next picture in my dragon coloring book for next month.

There seems to be bleed through from the markers I used on the previous picture. I think I’ll be able to hide it. I took this pic with black and white filter.


Color doesn’t make sense to me. How can the two ‘o’s sound so different? To me, in my accent it sounds like ‘culler’. Brits make it sound proper with their spelling. It sounds fuller and yearns for crayons and paints.

Since once again I’m staring at the end of another month of not Escaping  with the coloring club, I think I’ll stop streaming and go to my hobby room and finish the pages I started at the end of last month. Hopefully, that will create Sunday’s blog.

Need to finish today!

Per Linda:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “color/colour.” Use it as a noun, a verb, or pick a color and write about it–use it any way you like. Have fun!

Oh, the boring problems of privilege. I tried. I just couldn’t finish this book. It was a NetGalley. There are plenty of people who love this book. But trainwrecks aren’t my favorite thing to watch. I got 21% into it. But my reading time is best spent with books, of which I have thousands, most free, that I like to read. So moving on.

***
Okay. From now on, when I hate a book and can’t get more than a quarter of the way into it and give up, I won’t go back and try again.

I thought maybe with time I’d be more into it. But as of today, having actually finished this book, that is time I will never get back. The character had no redeeming qualities, nor was there any growth.

I must listen to my intuition!

No. I didn’t play Tetris. I needed to do more rearranging in my ‘studio.’

My daughter is deeply in a move. So much so that they are living with no furniture for two weeks. Everything has already moved or has been given away.

Which brings me to my new acquisitions from her. Two folding tables and a cubicle shelf for hobbies and books.

That meant moving the smaller bookshelf full of music books to another location.

End of the piano facing the livingroom.

That left the window area for the cubicle shelving for art, crafts, more books.

The yellow bag has drawing goods. The Avatar bag crayons and colored pens and coloring books. Soon each will leave the bag for new cubes.

Now I’ve opened the smaller table for all kinds of fun.

Right across from the piano.

Meanwhile, we actually had a tiny bit of rain today. Not enough to put out fires but it cooled things down a bit.

Three more Marvel films moved me on the timeline. Captain America: the Winter Soldier, and both Guardians of the Galaxy. I did like G of G. They were more my kind of movie. And Grood is the coolest!

Okay, time to make some noise or music accordingly.


Adding the cuffs.

So today was a busy one.

I got up way later that I hoped. Still it wasn’t too hot so Kali and I walked our mile. She was so slow. I don’t know what was up. She usually loves her walks. So it was way slower than usual. My app didn’t record it. I listened to a podcast that my daughter introduced me to. It kept my mind busy so the walk was painless.

My friends and I have challenged each other to watch all of Marvel Universe in timeline order. My husband has joined. We are now on Ironman 3. I think this is my favorite of the Ironmen. By the way, you can find this order on Disney +.

I seem more tired since getting back. I had to take a nap. I usually do well on a 20 minuter. But I went far over. I was 1/2 hour late for my recorder class.

Luckily,  I have a few lessons on my own before finding the class so it was review. I’m sure my advance will fade in the next two lessons. It was fun to be in a class with second graders to folks my age. I think that is the best kind of class. Be on the level of learning not peer groups.

Within a 1/2 hour of the end of recorder class was my writers group. I love the people in that group. Such a creative bunch. There are published authors to challenge all of us.

Now back to Ironman.


Yesterday (actually today but I plan to schedule this for tomorrow) my daughter drove me home. It was so nice to spend the extra time together. We listened to these podcasts:

Sorry for the bad quality shot but I felt that would be the easiest way to look up the podcasts. Type the second line in the Google.

The following is as we entered the heavy smoke of the Bootleg Fire. Sorry about the chatter and podcasts in the background.

I feel badly that my daughter has to drive home alone and go back through that smoke. But then there are people who live there some of my writers group live there. Send prayers and healthy thoughts.


No, I won’t share my truly least favorite word. This is kid-friendly zone. For the most part. But there is a word I hear people say. Maybe it is a local thing? Impordant. I even hear highly educated folks say this. I probably say things I learned from my parents and grandparents. I have tried not to say worsh.

I think it is important to wash our hands a lot.

I mean… <– How many people start their whole conversation with that phrase? Seems to me that it should be used to clarify your soliloquy, but start with the clarification seems pointless.

If you use the above words or phrase. I still love you. And I hope to learn the whys and wherefore of these Colloquialisms.

I’m still on vacation so I’m working on my phone. I’ll fill in the parts I’ve left out over the next few days. It had been fun. I am so fortunate to have friends and family so dear! But since I’m scheduling this up on Friday night, I can say I’m being traveled back home, tear in eye. Hand to heart.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “least-favorite word.” Use your least-favorite word in your post. If you can’t decide on one, use a word that just really bugs you. Enjoy!
