As a thank you gift, Jean Ann gave me a collection of adult coloring books! I had never heard of such a thing, but they are gardening scenes, cooking, etc with adults, not children in mind. It is supposed to help occupy your free time. Hmmm! Free time! I can’t wait to get started. adult coloring books.151
