Crazeedi Sorry I just got back on here, I'm so glad you like everything, I'm so happy to have you for my swap partner. As I told you (I hope) I love your city and you are so special too!! 1mo
Chrissyreadit Sent you “urgent” email 1mo
Avanders @Crazeedi same here — so happy to have you as a swap partner 🤗🤗 And yes! You told me about your connection to Abq! And indeed, it definitely does get cold here! Our average winter lowest-lows are teens and twenties, but it has been known to get even colder than that! ❄️☃️💙 1mo

Oh my goodness! These #WinterSolsticeSwap #WSS packageS arrived yesterday! 👏🏽❄️👏🏽🌚👏🏽

Also received the bottom 2 books from #ReesesBookClub — both sound really good!

And finished the 3 graphic novels!
Ghosts was cute and sweet 👍🏽
Witchy had promise, but felt like mostly world-building and not much else… 👌🏽
The Girl From the Other Side was pretty and dark and very well done & intriguing! Will read more 👍🏽

Chrissyreadit I agree 100% about Witchy 2mo
Avanders @Chrissyreadit so frustrating too.. so much potential! 2mo

Happy Winter Solstice! On this day it's traditional to eat #汤圆 #tangyuan or glutinous rice balls. Luckily I had a stash in my freezer - these are filled with black sesame. Pop them in some boiling water sweetened with sugar and when you eat them you're supposedly a year older (!)

Lacythebookworm So cool! 😊 5y
BookishBlonde12 Yum! 😍 5y
Hooked_on_books That's quite interesting. And way better than the eyeballs I first thought I was looking at. 😂 5y
