A Christmas Carol | Charles Dickens
post image

Attended the Festival of Trees 🎄at a local #MittenLitten fundraiser and spotted this novel inspired themed tree. Yup, you guessed it, from A Christmas Carol! 📖

sprainedbrain That‘s gorgeous! 3w
Dolly Love the top hat. I‘ve always disliked traditional tree toppers 3w

Norse Mythology | Neil Gaiman
post image

This is my #authoramonth pick. I love Neil Gaiman and have read and enjoyed many of his books but I don't have a ton of extra reading time so this will probably be the only one I get to this month. Even found some locally made and mythological-ish soda to go with. 🖤

Soubhiville Let me know if you finished this so I can log it for you! 2w

I was able to listen to this #Audiobook for free via #Audible, because I met the female narrator, Anneliese Rennie, at the local #MittenLitten #RochesterWriters Conference last month. She had a wealth of knowledge about the craft of creating audiobooks and how the narrators put in six hours of prep work for each finished hour of the novel. She performed the female POV well, with distinct voices for each character.

LiteraryinLititz It‘s cool to hear about what goes into making an audiobook! Thanks for sharing! 1mo

When you shovel a ridiculous amount of snow and your bra strap keeps falling down...

Yes, I did take it off right there 🤷🏼‍♀️❄️❄️❄️❄️🥶

Jess_Read_This Fellow Mitten Litten- the bra was a noble sacrifice for snow removal progress! Hope you are inside and warming up like we are now. ☕️ 1mo

Wife @Jess_Read_This Bath bomb, candle, and a Coke 😉. Where in Michigan? How much snow did you get? 1mo
Jess_Read_This @Wife I‘m in bed with candle, book, and wine lol. Just a bit south of Port Huron. So far we measured 8 inches! And it‘s still coming down. Where are you at? 1mo
Wife @Jess_Read_This St. Clair Shores! I come to Port Huron all the time! 1mo
Jess_Read_This @Wife Oh! You aren‘t too far from me at all! Lol- we can be snow shoveling buddies this winter 🤣 1mo
Crazeedi The perfect solution! Good for you! Enjoy your warm cozy night!❤ 1mo
Wife @Jess_Read_This You know it! I may add some Motrin to my evening plans. I think we have at least 9-10 inches of snow ⛄️ 1mo
Wife @Crazeedi Thanks! I will. 🥰🛁 1mo
Jess_Read_This @Wife yes.. Motrin is in my future too. We probably got another 1-2 inches from when I last shoveled too 😐 1mo
Texreader Hilarious!!! 1mo

🧣Winter Weather Warning issued for my county. I was lucky to be home today. Time to curl up and be cozy with a mystery.

charl08 That's a lot of snow! 1mo
Jess_Read_This @charl08 It is! And it‘s still snowing. We have about 7 inches so far. A bit much for early November.. lol. 1mo
Lauram Snow is coming my way next. I‘m hoping for a snow day tomorrow. 1mo

Jess_Read_This @Lauram It is so beautiful (bc I didn‘t have to drive in it. Lol) I hope you get your snow day tomorrow! It‘s supposed to stop around 8pm here which gives the road crews time to clear so my hopes of a snow day tomorrow are dwindling. 1mo
Cailey_Mac Yikes! We got a light dusting today, and we‘re allegedly expected to get another 12inches tonight; we shall see though 1mo
Jess_Read_This @Cailey_Mac oh wow! 12 inches?! At last check we had 8 inches and it‘s still snowing. I hope you can stay home tomorrow curled up with a book! 1mo
Cailey_Mac @Jess_Read_This right! We rarely cancel work though :( 1mo
Jess_Read_This @Cailey_Mac ☃️No one can truly prepare us for this crappy part of adulting: work doesn‘t cancelled because of a snow day... unless you are a teacher which I feel like it‘s a small perk in the face of all the obstacles in their job lol. 1mo
Cailey_Mac @Jess_Read_This right! I‘m thinking the same thing! Hence our current house search not going further than 20 minutes away from work😅💀 1mo
Jess_Read_This @Cailey_Mac ha! You are wise. So wise. I have an hour commute on a normal day. Snowy days make me ponder my life choices 😂 1mo

This is an absolute pity post. It's been snowing here for days...and it' snowing again... and not expected to stop till tomorrow. I don't even dislike winter but this is TOO MUCH, TOO SOON! 😩

DaveGreen7777 🥶🥶🥶 1mo
cathipink I'm so over it and hoping this isn't a precursor to the entire winter😬😬😬 1mo
Wife Where are you? It‘s supposed to be cold and windy for us on Halloween 🎃🥶in Michigan #MittenLitten I agree that it‘s way too soon for that much snow ❄️ 1mo

Cinfhen Oh no!!! That‘s not fun 😫 1mo
merelybookish @cathipink I take it you're in Colorado too! I'm worried as well. In part because the temps seem to be staying low even after the snow stops. 1mo
merelybookish @Wife Colorado.🏔️ It's not uncommon for us to get an early snowy day but it doesn't usually last. This feels like it could be January. 1mo
cathipink Yes, Denver metro. Spring was so dreary and gray - I need my winter sun! 1mo
merelybookish @cathipink I'm in Lakewood. I feel I've been cheated out of autumn. 😕 1mo
merelybookish @Cinfhen No it's not! Kids will be trick or treating in snow suits! 1mo
Liz_M @merelybookish Welcome to Minnesota weather. Growing up most of my Halloween costumes were adaptable to fit over a snowsuit because there would be snow on Halloween every few years. The year there was an actual blizzard (22 in in 24 hours, visibility less than 1 block) we still had trick-or-treaters, much to my disappointment (mum left me in charge of the candy and I was planning to eat it all). 1mo
