Lots happening.. lots on my mind... reading a little for #bbrc #birthandbeyondreadingchallenge ... lots of good buggy moments... lots of job craziness (represented by that pic in the upper middle 😆)... and amid 100-degree weather, thinking about fall.

Guys I‘m thinking of *not* doing #fffs this year. I‘m thinking of maybe doing a cozy swap if @cobwebmoth or someone else wasn‘t already doing it..

But any thoughts? Input?

cobwebmoth Feel free to resurrect #letsgetcozy if you want. If you want assistance just let me know.😘 6mo
Avanders @cobwebmoth 😘😘 6mo

umbrellagirl Yes to hygge swap! So ready for autumn. This heat is awful. 6mo
LibrarianRyan Why not. Do what makes you happy. I don‘t normally do the fall swap since I can not seem to not sign up for all the Halloween swaps bu I do love a good cozy. 6mo
BooknerdsLife Beautiful photos💖 6mo
Catsandbooks So ready for fall!! 🙌🏼🍁🍂 6mo
UwannaPublishme Wishing you cooler and stress-free days ahead! 🤗💕 6mo
RainyDayReading I can‘t wait for fall! Really hope that if my finances work out I‘ll be able to participate (if you decide to do this 🙂) 6mo
erzascarletbookgasm I love fall swaps..fffs, cozy, or hygge! 🍂🍁🧡 6mo
Rudis Cozy sounds like a wonderful swap idea! 6mo
Zelma Photo of the aerobics championship? 👍👏😂 6mo
mom2bugnbee All sound wonderful - do what you like! Also, Ten Little Ladybugs was one of my now 17yo daughter's favorite books as a toddler. She still has it on her bookshelf. ? "Bug" is her nickname (see my handle name) which contributed to it. ☺ 6mo
Gissy Oh I will miss the ffffff swap☺️cozy swap sounds like cozy😂Yeah. I'm inn! For the ffffff or the cozzzzzy one😴 6mo
Avanders @Kayla.Adriena @umbrellagirl @LibrarianRyan @RainyDayReading @erzascarletbookgasm @Rudis @Gissy thanks for your input! I feel the same way about all the fall and cozy swaps! 😁 But life won‘t permit all the swaps, I *guess* 😘😘😘😘😘 6mo
Avanders @BooknerdsLife thanks! ♥️ @catsandbooks me too!! 🥵🍂🍁🧡 @UwannaPublishme thanks! 💖💖 @Zelma yes!! 😂 @mom2bugnbee aww that‘s so cool that she still has it! 💖💖 “Bug” forms the basis for many of my bugga‘s nicknames 😆😆 6mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 😘😘😘 6mo
BethM I‘m totally in for a cozy swap! I need this in my life and fall is perfection. I hope life slows down some for you! 6mo
MaleficentBookDragon I love the idea of a swap!!! I'm in. I was thinking of doing one called A Cozy Weekend just because I ♥ cozies so much; but you are so much more organized than me. I'll stick with my Halloween and Xmas ones. 6mo
Avanders @BethM fall is my happy place 🍁🍂🍁🍂♥️ @MaleficentBookDragon A Cozy Weekend sounds wonderful — you should do it! I‘m normally very organized, but I‘ve been so crazed and ... if I‘m being honest with myself (difficult to do sometimes!), I don‘t know when it‘ll slow down.. I just wanted a cozy swap *happening* 😁 So if you‘re up for it, I‘ll sign up for yours and amplify it and dream of cozy nights 😁🍂🍁⛈🧦🥰 6mo
BethM @Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon either way I‘m in! 6mo
Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon okay I‘m going ahead with this one! This way, you can focus on your Halloween swap (and this will be my fall swap). 😁 Hope I‘m not stepping on toes! Let me know though! I can back off easily! 5mo
MaleficentBookDragon @Avanders Yay! I just signed up. And I'll do my #AllHallowsReadSwap and #JolabokaflosSwap 5mo

So today at 20 hrs my door rings. I am surprised. Nobody was supposed to come. Is the mailman with a huge box for me. I got all these amazing books that really wanted plus the coloring book and colors. Also the sticky notes that I am afraid to use. This is an amazing present @Avanders : Do you have anything to do with this?

Avanders Yay!!! Yes! So sorry your #fffs package never appeared! This was to make sure you still received something and to bring some seasonal cheer ♥️♥️♥️ I'm only sorry I wasn't able to send something sooner! 🤗 14mo
CaroPi @Avanders are you kidding? Is amazing. I knew my package was lost in the Polish post office (that is why I always ask for tracking number) and not because it wasn't send. When you say you will make up for me never cross my mind something like this. Is amazing and shows you really look in my taste. This is the reason why my boyfriend is jealous of my Litsy exchanges. 14mo
squirrelbrain What a lovely package - and how sweet of you @Avanders ! 14mo
Avanders @CaroPi lol! Well I never meant to make your boyfriend jealous! 😆 I think it's just terrible when things are lost or destroyed in the mail - it makes me sad! 😞 So I'm so glad you like what I chose for you!! ♥️♥️♥️ 14mo
Avanders Thanks @squirrelbrain ! 🤗🥰😘 14mo

@Wonderwoman89 I am so sorry! I had this waiting for me in the apartment office and couldn't get it until today. You are so sweet to have sent this after everything you've been through! I wasn't expecting anything at all, so I was totally surprised to open it. Thank you for your thoughtfulness! @Avanders #fallingforfallswap #fffs

Wonderwoman89 I hope the books are okay. Our bookstores are still not open and I didn‘t know how you felt about books from ThriftBooks. 1y
ferskner @Wonderwoman89 of course! I wasn't expecting anything so it was all a great surprise! 1y
Avanders 😍😍😍 1y

With the s hurricane and everything being destroyed my boxes are late but I finally got them together and our post office opens next week so please be patient. They are on their way next week. Our bookstores were destroyed so I had to go a different route for book titles for everyone. I am sorry #hocuspocus #witchpleaseswap #fallingforfall

LibrarianRyan There is absolutely nothing to be sorry about. I hope you and your family are doing well. Is there anything you need or any way to help? 1y
ferskner Oh my gosh!!!!!! You are so sweet to still be working to get your box out to me, but it's totally unexpected. I hope you know that I was never upset about it! I just moved away from costal South Carolina and had to evacuate the last two years, with pretty significant damage in 2016, so I definitely get it. Is there anything I can do to help? 1y
MiraMonroe No worries. I wasn‘t expecting anything. I‘m looking to mail yours out this next week is post working that way? I hope it brings some light fun to you. 1y

Avanders What @LibrarianRyan and @ferskner said! Let us know if we can help! 1y
Wonderwoman89 You are all too kind. We will be fine. Life goes on. Just a lot of clean up and another hurricane coming our way this Thursday. Nothing to do but sit back laugh and read a book. 1y
Wonderwoman89 Yeaaaaas just mailed all the boxes today. You all should have them in three to five days. Can you please let me know when they arrive? 1y
Avanders 💖💖 Also.. did the PO have the #fffs pkg that Jessica sent to you? 🤞🏽🤞🏽 1y
Wonderwoman89 @avanders not that I am aware of. I was there yesterday and they didn‘t have anything. If it came during the storm it is gone so please do not worry about it. I am just glad I got my boxes sent out 1y
Avanders @Wonderwoman89 yes -- she said she had it delivered to the post office -- it was definitely during the storm! Let's see what the tracking number says ☺️ 1y

Our special section in such a cute, even tiny book. Several words are made up in a group and the drawing fits perfectly to the words. I am so in love with this book. Thank you @jmofo for choosing this one for me for #fffs. 😍💖

jmofo I‘m glad you like it! I want one for myself! 😄 1y
Sarah83 @jmofo didn't you have a look at it, before you sent it to me? 1y
