#litsolace Activity
Sketch at an outdoor cafe with a cup of chamomile tea or kitchen table with coffee…looking outside..

I am NOT an artist(clearly) however I challenge you to slow down and try to sketch with a pencil in the time it takes to sip tea or savor coffee .. it‘s lovely. I remember as a child I loved indoor recess when the teacher would hand out vanilla drawing paper. 💚 Who knew I had that memory ✍🏼💚

dabbe Vanilla drawing paper! What a gorgeous memory! 💚💙💚 4h
mrp27 As I read this I got a whiff of that drawing paper! 3h

My choice for tonight's #Fridaynightshare is without doubt The Voyage of the Beagle, Charles Darwin exhilarating record of his travels as a young man, that sowed the idea of evolutionary change. This experience, this journey had a life-changing effect on his direction in life.
I have lost count the number of times I have reached for this book. It brings me great comfort and joy.

#litsolace 🍓🍰 there is a wonderful strawberry pie from scratch recipe in here and if you have time and energy, it‘s wonderful but what if you don‘t? Or it‘s too pricey ..

My quick go to dessert … clean/cut strawberries mix in bowl with a bit sugar & a squirt of lemon juice if you have it. Bake a chocolate cake from a box the cheapest one- it‘s like a dollar or maybe two. Sprinkle with powder sugar. Fill the middle with strawberries. Cut&Eat.

TheBookHippie Frozen strawberries thawed a bit works too. Bundt pans are cheap at Walhell https://www.walmart.com/ip/3433693152 & https://www.walmart.com/ip/198370202 Gluten free cake mix works too. Make sure you “grease” the pan. 1d

TheBookHippie @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I know how you love my easy recipes 🙃🙂🙃 1d
IndoorDame This looks very impressive! I will totally be bringing this the next time someone asks me to bake something. 1d
TheBookHippie @IndoorDame It‘s very good and I‘ve found the cheaper cake mixes aren‘t as sweet and have less ingredients and taste better 🤷🏻‍♀️🍓🍰. 1d
TheBookHippie @IndoorDame another tip- buy a dollar store dinner plate or Walmart sells some for a buck and then you don‘t have to worry about cut marks or bringing it home. 1d
IndoorDame @TheBookHippie clever! Thanks ☺️ 1d
dabbe This looks delish! ❤️🍓❤️ 1d
AllDebooks This looks amazing 😍 1d

These books I‘ve been sharing with you are my favorite for summer reading. I use them over and over, different pages etc. It has been so fun sharing some of it with you for the month of June. I‘m in year 5 with How to be a Wildflower and I highly recommend using them as guides or to do or to ponder reads.

Amor4Libros I love her art! ❤️ 1d
IndoorDame Thank you for sharing! They‘ve been really inspiring 💜 1d

#litsolace Earth friendly tip 🌏🌍🌎

Not only can light pollution hinder your ability to see the Milky Way, but it can also impact wildlife migration, nocturnal pollinators, and hunan health. Use the tips below to preserve darkness for the benefit of every creature on the planet.

Use light only when necessary.

Try to keep your inside lights dim and draw the curtains.

Use motion-sensor lighting outdoors.


TheBookHippie ⬆️ Shield all outdoor lighting structures, making sure they point downward.
Use dimmable "warm white" LEDS energy and light pollution. ?

KadaGul With Inflation going on, we are all conserving everything and anything. I'm so close of thinking 🧐 to growing every veggie 🍅🧅🫚🧄🫑🌶️🥔🍠🍆🫛🥬🥕🍓🍋🥒and raising some livestock 🐄🐐🐓🐏🐑. (edited) 2d

Catsandbooks About a month or so ago our street lights got changed from the warm yellow light to the bright white light and I hate it. They are so obnoxiously bright it seems like there's stadium lights outside. 😩 2d
AllDebooks 💚 2d
AllDebooks @KadaGul I agree, they are an absolute joy 😊 1d
TheBookHippie @Catsandbooks 🫣😵‍💫 ughhh 1d
julieclair Your comment about migrating animals is so true. It is sea turtle nesting season here, and there are VERY strictly enforced laws that no beachfront homes can have outside lights on at night. When the baby turtles hatch, they use the moon‘s light shimmering on the ocean to guide them to the water. If they see a beach house light on, they will often head that way instead, and never make it to the water. It‘s really sad. 23h

I love walking and hiking. I try to walk a mile or 2 every day. Two years ago, my brother Douglas and niece Kellyn and I hiked the Alum Trail in Gatlinburg Tennessee. It was about six miles up the mountain. My knees aren't that great, plus the altitude made it difficult to breathe at times, but the views were well worth it.

Me -everytime I‘m in California, I walk for miles on the beach, alone. Mr BookHippie watches the shoes. This pic is a rarity I usually have my backpack on with my shoes dangling on the side. This was just a short jaunt as the sun set.
