From The Waffle bookshelves – part 1

Hi. How are you? I’m tired. Work is crazy busy since my return to the office after Covid, then a short week due to Easter and my day’s leave for the pottery workshop – more about that another time.

I seem to have got a bit carried away with the amount of books I’m trying read at the moment. So many books, so little time!

For dinner tonight we’re having prawn and spinach curry from Good Housekeeping Express cookbook. I really like this book. The recipes all work, taste delicious and take a maximum time of 30 minutes to prepare.

I go to this book time and time again.

Another non fiction book I’m into at the moment is this one about capsule wardrobing.

This is like a workbook. I’m working through it slowly. The best advice I’ve had so far for this ongoing project of mine to streamline my wardrobe into clothes I actually want to wear and which all go with each other is from the blog and website www.uselesswardrobe.dk. I’ve found that really useful.

I’ve changed the way I use my local library since the pandemic. I’ve really got into reserving books I want to read online with the library and then I collect them when they email me. The system works really well. The trouble is, I fancy reading far more books than I actually have time for. In my dreams I am lazing about reading good books in ALL my spare time… mmm, doesn’t quite happen like that.

I’ve recently collected this book by Thich Nhat Hanh.

I fancied reading this as he was highly recommended by my blog friend Liz, and I think mindfulness is important. You can check out Liz’s blog here. I’m always grateful to Liz for being one of my first followers and commenters on The Waffle. It means a lot when you’re new.

I’ll have to pause now to go and cook the dinner… back later with the rest of the books I want to show you…..Xx

  1. Awww. Thank you for the lovely mention and yes, I recommend any of Thich Nhat Hanh’s books to read. I can’t fault any I have read and also a book of another author from the Plum Village that I mentioned on my blog.
    I totally recommend mindfulness. Even trying it for 10 mins at least, using one of his practises. But you benefit more, if you do more than that. I certainly am and I used to be one that rolled my eyes at one point every time I read the word mindfulness. Even though I was already doing something a little of then.
    I hope you enjoy reading this book as I do of his, that I have read so far. 🙂

      1. I used to have too many books to read one time a few years ago. Which was a bad idea for me, when I am not usually always sticking my head in books. Its only this year, since getting back to read Thich Nhat Hanh that I am a regular so far.

        I still have one book to read though, that I have had a few years. Hopefully I will make time for that one this year. But I need to be in the right frame of mind for it.
