Those 10 chapters FLEW by, now I need it to be Sunday ASAP! 🙏🏻🎉🤯😱 #sundaybuddyread I was feeling badly that I hadn‘t stuck to my Thursday reading schedule but I had a headache yesterday ( and another today) but I‘m so glad I read this section cuz I‘m squealing over all the story development 💙💙💙 SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED

I have piles of books everywhere in my house, read, unread and currently reading. This book is good. I love the cover so much, I liked the story. It was an easy and quick read to fill time between sections of The Book of Cold Cases and when I don‘t want to heft A Suitable Boy.

Finishing my audio book and starting my Starry Night Lego set. It‘s still so hot and humid here I needed something else to do so o have saved this beauty of a set long enough

ncsufoxes I love this set. I haven‘t seen Starry Night in person (yet). But many years ago I saw the Van Gogh exhibition at the National Gallery of Art & it was amazing. My minor in college was Art History (Impressionist & Italian Renaissance were my favorite periods). Can‘t wait to see the finished product! 2w
SleepyDragon I need that Lego set. 2w

mcctrish @ncsufoxes I have seen it in person and been to the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. I took art all through high school and then clothing and textiles at uni, I have always had goals to see the art that I studied irl. I am so hoping Lego makes more of these sets 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 and I‘d love more funko artists too 2w
SleepyDragon @mcctrish I added it to my Lego wishlist (kinda like a TBR, but "to be built" lol), right behind the globe, bonsai tree, and Stones logo. I just need all my kids to move out first so I have room. 2w

mcctrish @writerlibrarian i think I‘m going to focus on sections like I do with buddy reads ( it‘s just too big to take with me in case I‘ve got some down time to read) I already love Lata and Malati, I hate Arun and I do hope Varun finds himself 2w
writerlibrarian @mcctrish That was my reading strategy also still I ended up reading late into the night more than once. The structure of the book also helps since the sections do not exactly continue the story in a linear fashion. 2w

Today I went and got my first manicure in more than a decade. I‘m a nail biter and have been my whole life. I spent the month of July, my birth month, trying to stop with the end goal being a fancy polish colour. I hate dirty nails so summer and gardening is a hot mess time to give oneself this challenge ( did you know soaking in polident gives you white nails? It saved me!) there will be many books and manicure shots henceforth 🤣🤣

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Love it!! 💅 when I was younger I bit my nails and I don‘t remember how I stopped, but somehow I did 🙌🏻 3w
Cortg Congrats! I‘m not a biter, but I hate any length so I‘m always cutting them super short. I love the blue! Enjoy 😊 3w

mcctrish @Cortg I totally hear you about the length and truthfully I used to hate how polish felt on my nails ( not my toes for some reason) I am not sold on keeping them this long and I‘m not sure I can afford to maintain this professional elegance either 🤣🤣 (edited) 3w

LeahBergen They look great! And I‘ve never heard of that Polident trick. 😮 3w
mcctrish @LeahBergen my manicure person said she learned that in school, a lot of times the older ladies just wanted nail care, not polish but your nails yellow with age. So they‘d soak with polident #themoreyouknow (edited) 3w
LeahBergen That‘s good to know as I get into my own “older ladies” years. 😆 3w

I loved everything about it, the history of the Borscht Belt, the multigenerational story, the twists and turns and the ending. I picked this book up because it had summer in the title and discovered a few days later @TheBookHippie was doing a buddy read with it ❤️❤️ July has been wonderful

I had a big morning of going to the dump ( household hazardous waste = paint, batteries, electronics) and then to another town to pick up some mid century concrete planters I bought off FB.

I think we are going to watch Persuasion tonight so I‘m drinking a Lime-Arita from Gin Austen ( a cocktail recipe book with all drinks going with one of JA‘s books) a Persuasion cocktail

KathyWheeler I‘m interested in what you think of the movie. 4w
mcctrish @KathyWheeler I really liked it. It was pretty to look at and it made me laugh and swoon. Just enough bigheads to get mad at. ( I don‘t know persuasion as well as I know P & P but I do not understand all the up in arms over this version at all) 4w
KathyWheeler @mcctrish I didn‘t hate it but I felt that they were going for a Bridgerton feel but couldn‘t commit to it fully. Anne Eliot was also a more introverted character than she‘s played here. I loved Richard Grant as her father, and the woman who played Mary was great. 4w
See All 9 Comments
mcctrish @KathyWheeler I got Bridgerton and last version of Emma vibes for sure. I thought casting was well done. I think I just love all things JA that I will take whatever the people want to make 🤣🤣 4w
KathyWheeler @mcctrish 😄 I truly didn‘t find it as awful as people make out. 4w
mcctrish @KathyWheeler the first reviews I saw completely trashed it and I was thinking “god, what have they done?!” And then The Globe and Mail ( 🇨🇦‘s main national paper) gave it a critic‘s pick and I was baffled. You are right, it wasn‘t awful but it wasn‘t truly original either . After reading Miss Austen by Gill Hornby where Mary Lloyd dismisses JA‘s writing as ‘okay‘ I‘m even more pleased that adaptations continue to be made (edited) 4w
KathyWheeler @mcctrish And despite all that, I still didn‘t hate it. It isn‘t one of those movies where I thought, “Well, I‘ll never get those hours of my life back.” Interesting that reactions to it are so varied. 4w
mcctrish @KathyWheeler ugh typos in my last comment 🤦🏻‍♀️ it wasn‘t awful I meant to say and yes I agree, it is wild that it has garnered such mixed reactions 4w

I am regretting borrowing this book from the library and not being able to add it to my shrine to JA. It was a lovely fictionalized look at the lives of Jane and Cassandra Austin from Cassy‘s perspective ( quite a few Bigheads in the story to keep it on the JA moral path)

My laundry room needs new flooring ( the paint on the cement thing isn‘t working) and the walls need painting. What I wouldn‘t give for a fancy laundry room 🙏🏻 Today I reorganized, cleaned, purged and finished this book. Now I‘m filthy and tired but the room looks better. This is a fantastic book, heartbreaking and thought provoking. A lot of the science is beyond me so I appreciated that often it was being explained to a 9 yr old

Brooke_H What I wouldn‘t give for any kind of laundry room! 😂 4w
mcctrish @Brooke_H that is a good perspective for me to remember 4w
CindyMyLifeIsLit @Brooke_H Oh my gosh, yes!! My laundry room is the walk-through to the garage! There‘s just enough room for the washer and dryer—that‘s it! 4w
Brooke_H @CindyMyLifeIsLit Mine is IN the garage! So hot here in CA. 🥵 I dream of some kind of lovely basement or laundry room that are common in other parts of the country/world. 4w
mcctrish @Brooke_H @CindyMyLifeIsLit my husband and I discussed moving the washer dryer into the kitchen ( like many people in Europe ) or to the mudroom ( cut coat and shoe storage down significantly) so we could use the basement room more for storage but I don‘t actually use the dryer a lot so where would I hang everything to dry ?! I‘m in Canada so winter can be a bitch 4w

I did laugh out loud often at the dialogue and it‘s a great summer reading by the dock book. I expect to see it on the Hallmark channel sooner tthan later ( if it doesn‘t already exist 🤣🤣) and while I don‘t watch the Christmas movies all the time, I have been known to watch while I iron. There is an actor who I can visualize being Charlie Listra ( a dead ringer for a young Cass Winthrop - Another World ) but can‘t remember his name
