Might be delayed getting home because of Hurricane Henri. I‘ll just have spend a few extra days here. Don‘t know how I‘ll manage!
Loving the latest selection from our book club at work.
Downloading an audiobook for the drive tomorrow. Joining the Pfizer club and getting my first dose. Such a relief.
I heard about this at a talk about witches on International Women‘s Day earlier this month and was pleased to find it was available as an ebook through my library. For all the time I‘ve spent in the places listed in this book, it never occurred to me that there were so few monuments to women. We must do better.
Has anyone tried her teas? Are they as good as they sound? I am so tempted by her descriptions.
“Why do you think your values would work in a culture you don‘t understand?”
2021 may just be the year of the chunkster. I didn‘t set any reading goals or challenges, apart from my book a week goodreads goal, but I‘m feeling motivated to take on some of my bulkier TBRs.
“I prefer cinnamon twists over scones because they‘re easier to eat while I‘m reading. That‘s my main priority when it comes to food. Other people are obsessed with calories, nutritional value, antioxidants. I look at food and wonder: Can I eat that without having to put my book down?”
Me too, Nora, me too.
Highly recommend the tagged book. A great multigenerational Mexican-American family story. I will be looking for more from this author. #integrateyourshelf
Today‘s very restrained book haul from The Book Barn. I am now looking for the remaining two in the Cazalet series to match these three.
The St Mary‘s short story, becoming a bit of a Christmas tradition for me.
I hope all of you are tucked up with a good book today. Merry Christmas!
It took less than two minutes to get to my place and I spent the entire car ride wondering whether my outfit looked good enough for my ghost to float around in for an eternity.
And you would not believe how many pajama pants you can get away with wearing to nice places if you just slap a sharply cut blazer on top of them.
Just one more day of work and then I plan to install myself here for the rest of the year.
I have seen this little train at Jai Vilas!
...for delivering after-dinner drinks and sweets: Then he pressed a button—and the train started. It is a lovely silver train, every detail perfect, run by electricity and has seven trucks—Brandy—Port—cigars—cigarettes—sweets—nuts—and chocolates. If you lift the glass lining to the truck or a decanter the train stops automatically. It is the nicest toy—and perfect for a State Banquet!
#bookhaul from Powell‘s! B2G1 on used books and an umbrella tote for obvious reasons.
Great weekend with #dar friends attending our virtual state meeting. So nice to socialize and feel normal for a bit.
Wondering what‘s the best way to report an error in a book. This image, intended to be the coronation of Henry I, is actually the coronation of Edward the Confessor.
Another lazy day on the sofa with a book and tea.
Few stork-revering peoples have gone quite as far as the Maghribis: according to Ali Bey, the endowments of the Fez lunatic asylum were regularly diverted to pay for the nursing of sick storks, which were believed to be temporarily transmogrified humans.
