It's Friday I'm in Love
Isn't he adorable? :) I loved trolls when I was younger and was glad to see them back (in an altered form) again. I couldn't resist getting a few in this mini size.
A few other things from my happy list this week:
The sweet little hummingbirds that visit my feeder all day. I have three feeders and there is usually a bird on one of them whenever I glance outside. They make me happy. EXCEPT when they fight with each other! They are so territorial. There is usually one bully each year that will take over a feeder and he'll sit in the tree and watch for other birds who try to eat from it. Then he'll swoop down and knock them off the feeder. Ugh! If only they knew there is plenty of food to go around for all of them. But that's how they roll.
This time of year they are starting to really fatten up, getting ready for their migration when Fall sets in. I usually have them up until about the second week of October. Then there may be a visitor now and then from a straggler heading south.
Write Now Podcast I discovered this podcast about a month ago and I love it. I'm trying to get back into the writing habit after a long hiatus and I find this podcast extremely useful. Confession: I'm just now discovering the magic of podcasts. I never really thought much about them or had any interest in checking them out. Now I get it. This is one where I find myself repeatedly listening to older episodes.
For some time now I've been wanting to really dig into certain authors' works. David Foster Wallace is one of those authors. I like downloading the samples from Amazon or Barnes & Noble to get an idea of what the book is like. I'm just now diving into this one and I can tell I'm going to love it.
I have a fascination with the notebooks and journals of writers, artists, poets, etc. Really looking forward to starting these this weekend.
Finally, this magazine.
I usually get it at Barnes & Noble. I wish we could get all of the issues but it's printed out of the country and they don't send every issue here. But what does come is wonderful! They even have an issue devoted to paper lovers (yay!) with tons of art papers to use for collage or whatever you wish.
So that's it for this week's It's Friday I'm in Love. Thank you for stopping by!
