Wow, long time no Weekend Reading post. I actually feel bad as I’ve neglected A bookworm’s life a little bit. It seems like life is a bit out of balance currently; I am constantly trying to do so many things, when I make progress with one thing something else falls apart. So I’m forever playing catch-up.
I spent a long weekend in the countryside at the start of this month and it was so nice to have a few days to relax and sleep in and go on long walks. One night The Boy and I went to a pub and played a few games of bar billiards (which I love, even though I’m rubbish at). On the way home, we were walking down this really dark country lane when I looked up and was just awestruck by the number of stars that were visible. So so many stars and we could even see a spiral of the Milky Way! I don’t mean it was anything like what they see at the ESO in Chile but it was still amazing. I think it would be nice if I would look at the stars more often. Isn’t it ironic that I work in astrophysics and I barely ever look at the stars?
Anyway, other than my rambling thoughts, here are some interesting things from around the web…
Black and white pictures given new life with colour.
I know I’ve mentioned them before, but I made these cookies this week and they are definitely still my favourite!
Also, baking makes you happy.
Pictures of human bodies that look like landscapes, amazing!
New restaurant bingo, fun!
What are your plans for this weekend?
