Continuing with C

This book had been sat on my shelf for a while now and I am so glad that I finally got round to reading it for AtoZ

I managed to read this book in only two sittings. The second of which saw me getting out of a freezing cold bath.

As for the book it was fantastic, a thoroughly enjoyable read which gave a good insight into the world of an Autistic teenager. I would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone without any hesitation.

We have also watched the film Crank 2 this week which I really shouldn't have enjoyed but did. The Crank films are very tongue in cheek action films, with rather bad language and ill-advised sex in public which made me cringe but they both made me laugh out loud more than once and of course there was some rather spectacular eye candy in the form of Jason Statham.

Yesterday I did make some gorgeous Cookies but unfortunately the majority of them got eaten before I had the chance to take a decent photograph so I ended up with the 2 sadder looking ones that had been at the edge of the baking sheet in the oven.

After a little bit more Creativity in the kitchen this morning we had Carrot, Cumin, Chilli and red lentil soup for lunch I don't think we will be having it again though as neither of us really enjoyed it and there is a Chicken Chilli all ready to go for tonight's tea.

Pete and I went for a walk yesterday to one of our favourite places Neumann's Flashes where I took the picture. The colours are true to life.

Formed in 1873 following a salt mine collapse the resulting flashes were then filled with lime waste from the chemical industry and lay filled with an unstable alkaline paste, derelict and abandoned for years. Over the years nature began to fight back and has now created an area of calcareous grasslands containing a wealth of wildlife , birds and plants resulting in a beautiful and interesting place to walk.

I also loved the book! That photo is amazing, I have never seen anything quite that colour, and that the wildlife has started to reclaim it is incredible, you would have thought it would become wasteland!

I've never heard of the Crank films! I must lead a very sheltered life. lol
Love the photograph of the collapsed salt mine. The colours are spectacular.
I love how nature reclaims everything we try to take away from it. :-)

That is one of my favorite books. I considered re-reading it this fortnight but my plans went awry.

Incredible photography. The collapsed salt mine really left a beautiful mineral footprint.

That last picture is beautiful.

Great C words.
