When I first heard of the “Color Me Calm” books, I was a little skeptical. How can a coloring book — I’m sorry, a Zen coloring book — truly calm someone? I mean, it wasn’t really that calming when I was in daycare, let alone now.
So, I decided to figure out why this trend was so popular among adults, and not just young adults, but people throughout each stage of life.
Rebecca Cloud, a staff member at the Lincoln Parish Library, said that because of to the calming nature of the books, the library has begun a “Color Your Way to Calm” workshop.
If you planted zucchini this summer, you probably are still harvesting the vegetable. This summer we planted only four plants and have had an abundance of zucchini. Zucchini can be eaten raw, grilled or baked in a variety of dishes.
