I read in 2017 
'Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin'
read my review at Goodreads HERE

Minli sets out on an adventure to prosper her family's poverty. She walks along with footsteps buffered by her father's stories and a heart heavy laden from her mother's sorrow at their plight of poverty. Along the way she meets with echoes of her good heart and the wings of her imagination come to life.

Ohh painting on news paper, I love it. It's still raining here too. Sorry your knees hurt. I do like Bruno Mars, thanks for the vidi. Congratulations on your books. Also thank you for joining in with Friday Face OFF. Have a great day today.

Most enjoyable. I particularly love the haibun about what sounds like a delightful book. (And am wondering if it is the orange juice or the rain making your knees hurt, or maybe the juice is an attempt to help them get better?)

Debi Swim said...

I'm checking out your books on Amazon!
Love your artist talent and creativity.

rebecca said...

my mother says she can predict the weather by the way her knees feel! she is 93 and is the most fun person i know! she would also approve and applaud of your beer with lunch!
enjoy a delicious weekend, thanks for your place in our haiku hearts!

One of these days I'm going to have to join your linky, Gillena. I sure love your juice on newsprint. Very clever idea. Your lunch looks good, too. It is nice to see vegetarian dishes for a change.

Lea said...

I love the newspaper print orange juice. I hope your knees are better and that you are enjoying the rain. Thank you for the feast you have prepared for us! Including Bruno Mars!

My mom was a city girl but adapted to Dad's farm way of life. Grandpa, their sharecrop landlord, told mom that Dad was to be in charge of the farm and farm animals but she was to be the boss of the house. Soon she also ran the chicken and egg business.

I love what you did with the newspaper ad, Gillena. So very cool. I must pay attention on whether the weather affects my knees. :-)
