Grace in Small Things Part 45 of 365

Sorry for the hiatus. When you’re pounding the keyboard 10 hours a day, the last thing you want to do is play on the computer when you get home. But I’m back now. I’m sure you’ve been crying and moping around during my absence too, so I’ll throw some photos your way this time.

  3. Finally finishing Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult (audio book). I chose it for the Spring Challenge, and was it ever long. Like 19 hours long. I learned some things about Ms. Picoult’s writing from hearing someone else read it aloud. 1) she used the word “muttered” a lot in this book; 2) there were waaaaay too many metaphors that appeared in chunks of the book; and 3) she’s quite verbose, that Jodi, what with all the characters and sad lives and all.
  4. The Milpitas Library. Holycrap. See ya, tiny little branch of the San Jose library by my house!
  5. I have completed my portfolio for my Photoshop class. It’s due on Tuesday. That’s right. I’m done a whole three days early. You can take a peek at what I did. Heh. Here’s a taste:
