Sara and I went to Trader Joe’s last Friday and brought home a bunch of orange tulips. I put them in a blue & white pitcher on the corner of my desk and totally enjoyed watching them open up as the week progressed. I was even inspired to make a Waterlogue. This view is from Wednesday. The blossoms were all spent by this morning and my view is now … a lot less colorful … which inspired me to celebrate the Good Stuff this Friday!
Thinking about … another summer of Book Bingo. Patty says Yes. and I say Why Not?! We’re going back to the Memorial Day to Labor Day thing this year and it’s 101 days. 101 days!! I’m planning to drop in a few new squares (Read With Us choice, specific prizes long/short lists, buddy read … no worries, I promise “matches your manicure” will not appear 😉 and will need to delete a few – any suggestions?) Based on the calendar, books finished from May 29 – September 6 will count. I’ll have the link to generate a card posted later this month. I do hope you’ll join in!
Grateful for … a delightful piece of book mail.This pretty book and accompanying note arrived in my mailbox yesterday. I somehow managed to miss ALL the hoopla surrounding this book when it launched (back in 2019). and that likely made the time I spent savoring the drawings and stories that much more special.
Inspired by … all the poetry! blog posts and Instagram and podcasts … and I am enjoying every bit of it!
Fun … our crazy crew was all together on Sunday. The weather was amazing. I can’t wait to see what memories we’ll make in the coming months and years. especially now that we’re all going to be close enough to hold hands, and laugh. together.
Wishing you the best weekend available. Sara and I will be scouting neighborhoods “in town”. good wishes welcome.
