#MarchIntoOz #MyHappiness😊Tonight I was supposed to go to dinner with a friend who had to cancel because of a work situation. Much as I enjoy her, I'm actually very happy. It's still (Hawaii) cold & damp out & I had my last bowl of leftover potato soup for dinner & read some more of the tagged book for bookclub & now I'm in pjs watching I, Tonya with popcorn & a blanket on the couch & my favorite boy🐱sleeping across from me. Happy❤️#catsoflitsy

Leftcoastzen Sometimes a quiet evening with Max is the best I bet. 2y
Eggs Sounds like a fun and cozy night. Did you like the film? 2y
DebinHawaii @Leftcoastzen Yes, a little Max time is always good for the soul. 🐱❤️ 2y

DebinHawaii @Eggs I did like it. Living in Portland at the time, it brought back memories of all of the coverage and hoopla. 👍 2y
Cinfhen Max is ALL kinds of happiness and chocolate ain‘t too bad either 😁although you‘re reading about it, not eating it💋 (edited) 2y
Jess7 I liked I, Tonya! I enjoyed the story and I loved the brilliant acting by Allison Janney! So happy she won an award for her portrayal of Tonya‘s Mom. 2y

I‘m tired, but #myhappiness is rising, because I‘m going to Iceland very, very soon. We are waiting to board at the moment, and then it is only a 3 hour flight. I can‘t wait to start this book set in Iceland, but I‘m not sure I can stay awake long enough to begin reading it on the flight 😅

Also, any tips for a book lover in Iceland? Where are the good bookstores at?? #bookbuyingbanbedamned


erzascarletbookgasm I loved this book. I‘m of no help but I look forward to seeing your posts on your trip. Have a lovely time 😙 2y
julesG Have a safe trip and a wonderful time. I'd guess the big bookstores are in Reykjavik. 2y

AnneCecilie If I remember correctly there's a big bookstore in the Main Street of Reykjavik. But much might have changed in the 20 years since I visited 2y
LeahBergen Yayyyyy! You have your Burial Rites and your bookjig and you are on your way! Have a wonderful holiday. 😘😘 2y
TrishB Have fun ❤️ 2y
Mitch I ❤️Iceland. I was working there for a while a few years back and have been drawn back a few times since! There‘s one big bookstore in the main high-street. The best thing though - is reading is loved by everyone! If you read in public it‘ll soon start a conversation with people about what you‘re reading ! People love books! Enjoy! 2y
BibliophileMomma This was such an intense book but so good. 2y
Sarah83 Hope you have a wonderful trip. 🤗 2y

Kalalalatja @erzascarletbookgasm thank you! I‘m looking forward to both the book and getting to know more this amazing island! ❤️ @julesG thanks! I have already browsed a bit in a few 😉 @GatheringBooks it often adds something to the reading experience for me! And Iceland is pretty magnificient 👌 @AnneCecilie I have already found a couple of big ones, so I‘m a happy book worm! @LeahBergen The bookjig is an amazing invention 😄 thank you so much ❤️ 2y
Kalalalatja @Mitch that sounds absolutely wonderful! @Tiffy_Reads good to know! I‘m really looking forward to digging into it! @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks well, I could cut down on my book buying to fit you in 😄😉 @Cinfhen we have only been here for a few hours, but we are already loving it! @cariashley I have been for a quick browse in both, and I‘m already a fan! 😄 2y

#MarchintoOz #MyHappiness = Family, Friends(that‘s u my Littens) books, #bookmail and learning new things...#MahJongisHard

Cinfhen Hidden book might be for you @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 😘😘😘 2y
Bookishthoughts What did you think of "The Thorn Brids"? 2y
thereadingowlvina Ah, I miss playing Mahjong!!! 😮 2y
See All 30 Comments
Cinfhen I read The ThornBirds years ago @LazyDays I just bought it to reread for the buddy read starting April 1 hosted by @Reviewsbylola Really hoping I don‘t bail 😉🤞🏼🤞🏼 (edited) 2y
Reviewsbylola Book mail!! The book I‘m reading literally just now mentioned mah jong. 😂 2y
Cinfhen My mom has been trying to teach me all day @thereadingowlvina 🙄#mybrainhurts🤕 2y
Cinfhen Did Pachinko mention mah jong??? I feel like I read about it too recently @Reviewsbylola 2y
Reviewsbylola Yes I think so. 2y
Bookchipmunk Mah Jongg ❤️ I play with my Mom every week! Hang in there because it is so much fun once you learn it! 2y
Cinfhen Thanks so much @Bookchipmunk I‘m feeling really inadequate 😬I can‘t tell a wind from a crack 2y
thereadingowlvina @Cinfhen It'll take time. So many different rules. But once you familiar with it, it's soooo fun! 😁 You can do it! 2y
Bookchipmunk Hint: Make a photocopy of the tile types and write what they are to use as a 'cheat sheet' when you play. It takes practice but it's so worth it! 2y
emilyhaldi Geez just looking at those tiles... 🤪 2y
TrishB Played a long, long time ago! 2y
Cinfhen Really @TrishB ?!? I didn‘t see that coming 😂😂great idea @Bookchipmunk each suit looks different & why is the owl a one bam?? Or is it a crack?!!🤪#sendhelp 😘😘 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
Cinfhen Are u feeling any better @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks ?!??? 2y
TrishB My Dad enjoyed it. He didn‘t play board games with us - but would play ‘thinking‘ games. 2y
Cinfhen Ahhh, that makes sense!!! It‘s quite the thinking game😖😬 @TrishB (edited) 2y
Jess7 I loved The Kind Worth Killing. Did you like it? 2y
4thhouseontheleft I used to play mahjong when my college roommate taught me after she spent a semester in China! Haven‘t played in a few years. 2y
Cinfhen I bought that book for my daughter @Jess7 but I did read it and really liked it!! 2y
Cinfhen I could see u playing mah jong @4thhouseontheleft 😍I‘m told it‘s like riding a bike...it all comes back to you!! 2y
shahn77 My mom and dad love playing mah jong. They taught us this winter. We started calliting it CharDee MacDennis because it seems to have just as many rules and weird things to remember as the game from 'Always Sunny'. 2y
Cinfhen Hilarious @shahn77 so many rules and so many hands 2y
Blaire My mom plays mah Jong. I‘ll have to learn at some point. 2y
Cinfhen Ha, do it while your still young @Blaire and you‘re brain cells are still working properly ❣️❣️❣️ 2y
GlassAsDiamonds Should I say that my grandmothers bowling team decided well into their 70‘s to learn MahJong? 😊😊😊 My advice is ignore all scoring while you‘re learning unless you‘re a purist and never play with my cousin, he cheats. 😉😉😉 2y
Cinfhen Well good for them @GlassAsDiamonds and my mom who is 73 is a Mah Jong beast😜💕 2y
GlassAsDiamonds @Cinfhen these seniors putting the rest of us to shame...🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ 😂😂😂 2y

These three plus our dog are #myhappiness. And of course, a good book, a mug of hot tea or coffee, and a cozy blanket. It really is the everyday things.

And today my happiness is also seeing so many young people out marching!!! #marchforourlives
