Productive is the way

Although I didn't get outta the house very much during the weekend other than to take a massage that was a Christmas present and going to Church on Sunday...  the best word to describe my weekend is "productive".

Yes, it was productive from the reading point of view as I am happy to report that I am half way through my 4th book of the year, meaning I am in the right track for the 30 book in a year challenge!

Right now I am reading a totally random book about ancient Egypt called Moon of Israel (funny it's not called Moon of Egypt, but the story has lots to do with Israelis as well). The first couple of chapters were not that good (I think translation has something to do with it), but it's now getting interesting so I am looking forwerd to finish it soon!

It was also productive on the crochet project front, this time a lil' penguin I made for a friend of mine baby boy that turned 1 year old yesterday, this is Joshua's new penguin!

But the "productiveness" did stop at crochet, I also cleaned my closet and some of my drawers...

Now, the thing I can't figure out about my closet is, that each time I clean it, I end up with a big pile of stuff to give away to charity but my closet never seems look emptier and still in the back of my mind I feel as if need more clothes?!?

This year I am making a point of get rid of as much stuff as possible, those things that I do not use and perhaps can generate some money for charities like the Cayman Islands Humane Society that is in urgent need of a new building, hopefully my pile of stuff can help them a bit!

But it wasn't all work, work, work... while reading in the back yard and enjoying the afternoon sun I took some photos of the resident birds that come to bathe in our back porch water bowls.

Are those birds great, I love how different species come and share the bowls, something they kind of fight but they are pretty good in general... We have about 5 or 6 species that come and go, the most common one is the Bananaquit (showing in the first photo), but there are also Northern Parulas (showing in the last photo), Warblers and more...

Hope everybody had a nice weekend... Wishing everybody a productive week ahead!

How CUTE is that penguin!? :-) And those birds are lovely, love the colours!! On the last picture I didn´t see the bird at first, so it´s got very good camouflage. we´ve mostly got grey, white, black birds here, some with a red or blue or yellow colour on their chest though, but your variety is amazing!

I love that fat penguin! You had a productive weekend, I had a decidedly un-productive weekend!

That penguin is adorable!!! I had a sort of productive weekend, baked and cooked a lot on Sunday, and Saturday I spent most of my day trying to do a driver's course online so I could get a discount on my car insurance. VERY BORING!!! lol

30 books in a year? Unfortunately because I have two blogs and do book reviews on BOTH I read AT LEAST 30 books in a year :)

That's a super cute penguin!! My mother is super productive with making amigurumis, but I don't do anything like it. I wanted to learn to crochet, but life came in the way, and now I read that it's not good if you have carpal tunnel syndrome, it's too monotone.. so now I've given that up completely. I'll re-start making beaded jewellery instead, eventually.

You gotta love a productive weekend! And the photos of the birds are great! We stayed in and had a fire as it snowed all weekend.
