Cookies

Big or small. Simple or complex. With or without chocolate. This is a journal to share your favorite cookie recipes with fellow moochers.

Furthermore you can comment an already shared recipe. (Do you know that recipe? Did you try one of the recipes? Was it good? Do tell!) You can also suggest a tip or your own version of a shared recipe. But do this by referring to the recipe’s name or page number, don’t alter or change the recipe itself.

Personally I have a love-hate relationship with cookies: I love to eat them, and I even love to bake them. That is, I love to bake the two kinds of cookies I know how to bake. And that leads to the hate part of my relationship: I hate that I don’t know more good recipes.

So please help me (and maybe others with the same problem) and share your tried and trusted cookie recipes.

• Share as many or as few recipes as you like.
• Don’t alter or change other recipes – though you can tell your own version or some tip of a recipe already shared by referring to it by name and/or page number.
• Repost to bookmooch.com within 2 weeks.
• When the journal is full, please contact me and I’ll mooch the journal from you.

Flowers of meadow and vale


I spent a year in Hereford with two maiden aunts in 1950, when I was recovering from a serious operation. These kind elderly ladies were both retired infant teachers, and our time was spent between reading and going for long walks in the surrounding meadows and countryside.
My memories are just of a warmth and pleasure that I had in my time with them. I came back with a reading age of 12 and a knowledge of wild flower names seldom drawn upon until we moved here to rural Ceredigion in late 1980.
Since then common flower names come to me unbidden when I encounter meadow flowers, and I am sure I have them to thank for that, and for my love of the countryside.
This journal is dedicated to the memory of two lovely ladies and their joy in wild meadow flowers.
Please add your own favourite meadow and other wild flowers. Keep for no longer than two weeks before re-listing, and do not delay seding when requested. A lot of time and effort goes into journals and it is sad when they are lost. Contact me with any queries.

A History Journal: Native Americans

When I started doing some family research, I found that two of my great, great grandmothers were Cherokee Indians, of which I’m very proud. There is such a sense of wonder and interest for me when I think about the role of Native Americans in our country’s past and present. I love Indian art, music and stories and enjoy exploring Indian culture as much as possible. This journal is to celebrate that culture! Use any medium you’d like, just don’t alter someone else’s entry.

Much work and love goes into creating new journals  It’s so sad when one goes missing or is kept by someone other than the creater. Please pass the journals along!!

Original designs

This journal is for original designs of your own.
I stopped using knitting patterns about 30 years ago, instead check my tension, work out a design for the person I am knitting for with their measurements and preferences and then calculate needles size and wool type, stitch and row numbers, colours and designs and off I go!
I can’t knit much now because of a physical problem, but the socks I knit Mark last far longer than bought ones, which he often goes through in a day, it takes 6-8 weeks’ wear for him to hole my 3-ply ones knitted with wool my mother bought before she died in 1976. He finds the thinner ply equally warm and more comfortable. I recently knitted a patch for one he has holed and his comment that the double thickness on the heel was actually more comfortable still has inspired me to design a sock with a double thickness heel, which will be my entry here.
Your entry may be needlework or knitting or crochet, woodwork or metal work or electronics or whatever else you have designed. Whenever I mooch the journal back images of the designs will be uploaded to the journal site slideshow. Alternatively send me jpgs. of your, or other, entries to upload.

Libraries of the World – World of the Libraries

Libraries have always been a big and important part of my life. I love to hear stories and see pictures of libraries around the world, and especially I like to hear why that library made an impact to that person.

So, I hope you to share your pictures, artwork, stories and memories of the libraries (academic, public, no matter) that have affected to your life in one way or another. You can tell about the library next door to you, where you’ve been hundreds of times; or maybe you’ll share your thoughts about a library you’ve visited only once but you never forget it; or perhaps it’s a library you’ve only seen pictures of or heard of. Whatever the case – I’d love to hear about the libraries in your life, and how they’ve influenced you.

• Use as many or as few pages of the journal as you need. Please include a date to your entry!
• Repost to bookmooch.com within 2 weeks. Please be respectful of the other entries: don’t alter or cover them up.
• When the journal is full, please contact me and I’ll mooch the journal from you.

Original Poetry

This journal is for original poetry of any type of your own.
I have been clearing our horse’s manure daily recently from a field we have called Wern Fach (Little Bog). It is the site of a former one-acre smallholding on which a family subsisted for generations. The house has gone, the well is in disrepair, but there is such a feeling of history and peace there that I find poems springing unbidden to mind.  I have found that certain places seem to give rise to artistic, musical and poetic inspiration, and a pupil’s mother suggested I should start a journal for original poems. Please add your contribution with your name, BM id and the date of the entry.

Whenever I mooch the journal back images of the pages will be uploaded to the journal site slideshow. Alternatively send me jpgs. of your, or other, entries to upload.
