I might be almost half done with my new font "Dear Rae". So far it has been great fun. I am using a folded nib pen, a bottle of ink and watercolour paper. I am still drawing all the characters. Right now there are about 350 in the font.
I've been reading all the books on my library hold list. These are books I put on in 2012 and 2013. I enjoyed them all.
We are Water...In middle age, Annie Oh—wife, mother, and outsider artist—has shaken her family to its core. After twenty-seven years of marriage and three children, Annie has fallen in love with Viveca, the wealthy, cultured, confident Manhattan art dealer who orchestrated her professional success.
Data, A Love Story...Forty million people date online each year. Most don’t find true love. Thanks to Data, a Love Story, their odds just got a whole lot better. This book is a lively, thought-provoking memoir about how one woman “gamed” the world of online dating—and met her eventual husband.
The Good Luck of Right Now...For thirty-eight years, Bartholomew Neil has lived with his mother. When she gets sick and dies, he has no idea how to be on his own. His redheaded grief counselor, Wendy, says he needs to find his flock and leave the nest. But how does a man whose whole life has been grounded in his mom, Saturday mass, and the library learn how to fly?
Since rhubarb and strawberries are in season I made this bread yesterday. You can find the recipe here. It is a healthier, not too sweet, bread. We liked it.
Just finished Mad Men, on the last season of Breaking Bad and started Grace and Frankie. We both enjoyed it. 13 episodes AND it is renewed for next year.
So what have you been drawing, reading, baking or watching?
