Wintergames | Litsy Litsy
post image

Hello again, #USS!

Just an fyi ... there are TWO Google Drive folders containing all things related to #WinterGames.
#1: The one I created because I had to put names to all of the boards. I'm kind of weird that way. 🤷‍♀️
#2: The main folder created by our lovely hostesses, @Clwojick and @StayCurious.
You will find anything and everything you could ever want to see for this event in either folder, probably more info than you'll ever need! 😄

Allylu Hahaha! Thank you so much. 2d
AnnR Thank you. 👍🤗❄ 2d

1. I LOVE the nyt games app and use it every day, my favorites are: spelling bee, Wordle ,connections and the crossword.
2. Birding and nature walks that I hopefully get decent photos to post on iNaturalist and eBird. Super chill and stress relieving hobby that also feeds into my love of making lists!
3. Wingspan digital game- actual board game is fun too.

Thanks for the tag @dabbe !

dabbe #1: you and I do the same puzzles! Have you tried their Flashback yet? It only comes out on Mondays, and I don't know if that one is part of the games app.
#2: You and my husband should go birding together! He LOVES the birds! So do I, but not like him!
#3: never heard of it and will have to check it out!
Thanks for sharing! 🤩🤗😘
Flaneurette How did I not know about flashback?? Thank you!! Obsessed already! 2w
LauraBeth I didn‘t know Wingspan had a digital version! 2w

#TLT Three-List-Thursday @dabbe

🧩 Jigsaw puzzles including on an app.
🎨 Enjoy acrylic painting and diamond painting (currently working on dragon)
🏇 Of course riding. The best stress relief ever and it is aerobic.

So late, so if there is anyone who wants to play and hasn't already... you're it!

Happy Friday!

JenReadsAlot I love diamond painting! 2w
dabbe I do #1 on an app, too. Which one do you use? And I have a diamond painting kit; I just haven't done it yet. Riding? Nope. You are the maestro at that! Thanks for sharing! 🧡🖤💜 2w
TheSpineView @dabbe I like Jigsawscape. If you ever get this way I can set you with a riding lesson. 😁 2w
dabbe @TheSpineView Now that sounds like a plan! I've never been to South Carolina, but I've seen pictures, and it's gorgeous! 🤩🤗😘

I'll have to check out Jigsawscape. Mine is boringly called Jigsaw Puzzle. 🧩
Bklover @dabbe @TheSpineView I use Jigsawscape too! 2w

TheBookHippie @dabbe me cooking? So shocking 😘🤣 2w
dabbe @TheBookHippie Not just cooking, like Julia Child cooking. 🤩🤩🤩 2w
Mimi28 I need to write more, just journal and let it all out. I have been writing letters to God kind of like that and in a prayer form but my voice is low so it‘s hard to communicate sometimes. I used to write all the time even during my commute to school. I was a creative writing major at one point. 2w
TheBookHippie @Mimi28 I write every day it saves my mental health. I‘ve been journaling since I was 12 years old. I just free write even if it makes zero sense. Then I also write poetry, make collage journals. It all works. ♥️ pretty notebooks are fun to fill! I‘m gonna send you one of my favorites! 2w
