It is a while since I did a summary post here on Sue’s Trifles. The ones I have done previously were mainly for my own benefit. I was able to review my posts and make a recent contents list with comments.
It was perhaps a post of last resort, when no other ideas had come to mind!
Now I am only posting once a week, I have not been running out of ideas. However, I am aware that recent posts have been mainly bookish. I wrote one post of a different sort, but that has been accepted as a guest post on a multi-author blog and is likely to appear next month. Not all my posts would fit there.
In other news I have signed up for the Blogging from A to Z in April Challenge for both this blog and Sue’s Words and Pictures. My preparations are fairly advanced, particularly for my other blog. For this one the words are ready, but I am still collecting illustrations. Last time I looked there were over 600 blogs on the sign-up list with almost two months to go until the challenge begins.
For those of you who enjoy craft posts, I have to admit that I have taken a break from knitting and crochet. The last item I knitted found its way into a parcel without having its photo taken. (Not like me to miss a blogging opportunity!) No doubt I’ll start again sometime.
My knitting time has been replaced by colouring and Scrabble® as well as reading more. I have also started going to the library again (two libraries, actually). I used to be a regular visitor at our tiny local library, but the opening days changed and I began buying books. Anyhow, I have been to the library a few times recently. I read The Girl he Left Behind by JoJo Moyes and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is set in France. That reminded me that I hadn’t read anything in French for more years than I care to admit, so when I saw the foreign literature shelf in the library in the nearest town (my membership is countywide) I borrowed a book. It is one, which I might have had to read if I had continued to study French as an exam subject. I don’t think I’d have enjoyed it when I was young.
I have also borrowed a book by an author I find particularly entertaining. Jasper Fforde has written at least three series. The one I found is about Thursday Next. I seem to be several years behind with reading his books. That’s what comes of not going to the library!
I wrote this before #NationalLibrariesDay but scheduled it for a week later as I was unaware of the event. It would only have been lost in all the other posts with that hashtag!
Next time I may share some thoughts about travelling hopefully…
