On the lake in Canberra late Sunday afternoon.
And driving over Lake Burley Griffin yesterday afternoon.
I have been reading for fun in the past week or so, and loving it. There are times when the review books I get are amazingly good, and other times I find myself thinking reading is homework! So I’ve bought some books and am rereading some favourites, including books by Toni Blake and Lisa Kleypas. I also picked up books by new-to-me authors Janice Preston and Angel Smits.
Another week of terrible news in the world. I’m sure everyone’s talking about Munich (HOW many attacks will they get in the space of a few days?) – my aunt was just there.
My The World Is Terrifying rant of the week: How about Trump all but announcing he won’t fulfil America’s NATO obligations, and will essentially let Putin invade NATO countries?! (He already supports the invasion of Ukraine, but this is the first time most people paid attention to that fact.)
Something that won’t make the news is the car bomb assassination of a Belarusian journalist who lived in Ukraine and wrote against Putin, and other violent Russian/pro-Russian attacks on Ukrainian journalists in Kyiv.
This needed to be reinforced:
So glad people are FINALLY acknowledging that those “peasant tops” everyone has been wearing for a few years are actually Ukrainian designs! Some brands (cough-Valentino-cough) were actually using traditional Ukrainian and Belarusian patterns, and not acknowledging it!
