Nancy, over at Pomegranate Trail, has a great post on prayer flags. Lots of information and some great links to some prayer flag sites that were new to me--go check it out!

I'm doing more reading again. Still, slowly working on 1Q84, and strange as it is, I'm enjoying it very much. It is, however, slow reading. Very dense and very strange. It isn't a page turner in the usual sense, but rather, a "read a while then come back later" kind of experience.
The Lantern had finally arrived on the new book shelf. I checked several times last fall, and it was still on order each time, so finding a copy was a nice surprise. Sadly, however, despite many glowing reviews, the book wasn't grabbing my attention. It may work better for me later, but it wasn't what I wanted right now.
I wanted a book that immediately drew me in, one that would read quickly. Rummaging through my library bag, Lars Kepler's The Hypnotist found its way to my hands. Another book that I checked on several times, only to find the library didn't yet have a copy and another pleasant find on the new book shelf.
Amelia had read and liked it. It is another Scandinavian mystery/crime novel (last year was a big one for me and Swedish crime novels--Hakan Nesser, Kjell Erikson, Asa Larsson, Steig Larsson, Jo Nesbo, Henning Mankell, Johan Theorin, Jussi Adler-Olsen, and Camilla Lackberg were some of last year's reads-- thank heavens for translators). The Hypnotist begins with some gruesome murders, but certainly grabs the attention.
Two and a half hours of yoga this morning. A Yin yoga series and later, a Kundalini series; slow, relaxing, emphasis on breath--just what I needed on a Sunday morning.
This evening, more work on prayer flags. Tomorrow? More of the same...unless Fee doesn't have to go out of town, and we have a chance to do something. We had planned to go to the Robinson this weekend for the Bollywood Film Festival, but he ended up in Texas and didn't get back until tonight.
Damn good thing I'm so easily entertained with my little projects! Reading, yoga, planning my garden, and working on prayer flags-- the weekend has flown by.
