I had a lovely time yesterday and am hoping that today will be just as good.
I sorted through the books and advertised all the unwanted ones (39 of them!) as free to collector on the local Facebook page ... they are being collected this morning, so that was easy!
The photography class continued to focus on ways to developed your photographic eye and introduced the concept of the rule of thirds, something I'm familiar with but it's always good to be reminded to consider it at the time of taking the photo rather than when editing! He suggested going for a walk with our homemade viewfinders (a piece of card with a 9cms x 6cms hole in the centre) and looking for the images that produce an emotional response in you so I will hopefully be able to do that later today.
The happiness hub was interesting, providing breathing techniques to calm you and suggesting ways of controlling and reducing negative thoughts. I realised that it's also run on Wednesdays so next week I will change days as that will be more convenient.
Choir practice is always guaranteed to be fun and it was certainly that last night as there were problems with Zoom - it kept freezing, then slowing down or speeding up so rather a creative approach to keeping in time! Not the best night to be learning a new song but we all dug deep and called on our inner Take That to started working on Rule the World!
Today there is a delivery promised by noon and while I'm waiting for that I'll sort out the bits of admin so that'll be another thing ticked off the list. Once that's here I'm off out for my first walk of the week. I'd like to take some of the photos I need for my monthly challenge so will start off in Bradford on Avon to sort those out and then head to Clanger Wood to see if the bluebells are out yet. I suspect that it's still a bit early as I haven't seen any photos on the local Facebook page yet. On the way home I'll pass the Tesco Express shop that usually has a good selection of fresh produce so I'll be able to pick up the bits of shopping I need and then I can make a start on some batch cooking tomorrow. This store also happen to be next to the larger garden centre so it'd be rude not to go in, wouldn't it!
