Okay @FantasyChick your #SFFS is in the mail. 🤞🏻 there isn‘t an issue - it‘s overweight (with all your goodies!) and the Post Office wouldn‘t let me add to the shipping cause it‘s a flat rate box. It‘s not overweight by a significant amount, so the Post Office thinks it will go through - they just can‘t guarantee. I‘ll track and keep you posted.

FantasyChick Yay!!! I have yours all ready to go too. I'm just trying to figure out the packing. There "might" be 2 boxes......? 2mo
Melissa_J @FantasyChick if yours ends up back with me I‘ll have to split into two boxes 📦 📦 2mo

1) The friendships I have made here, that there are no ads, and the admins listen to us and help us when we have a problem!!
2) I would like to be able to post a pic under a comment... I say no to private messaging. I could see problems with that feature...
3) #BotmBuddyRead, #ManicMonday, #JustBecause #LitsyWelcomeWagon, #LitsyBirthdays, all photo challenges!
4) Litsy is my happy place, I love it here and all of the friends I have made!

I was out of town this days and I couldn‘t open my #cupidgoespostal until today. When I arrived home the first thing I made was run to open the box. It was a lovely surprise! Thank you so much @BookishMarginalia I love everything in the box! I don‘t know you, but with this box I can see you are very sweet person, thanks a lot! I can express in words my happiness in this moment. ❤️

BookishMarginalia Yey! 💜💜💜 I hope you love the books I picked. I had a lot of fun choosing them! 3mo

It‘s father/daughter dance night at Maya‘s school. Which she boycotts because she doesn‘t like to dress up. 😂😂 Instead they go to dinner and a movie, so I have the night to myself!

I was supposed to meet a friend for dinner, but her daughter ended up sick, and my foot is throbbing (I hate plantar fasciitis), so this is where I will be in my HP jammies with a book and tea!

Nebklvr What a sweet tradition. 3mo
4thhouseontheleft @Nebklvr It is sweet! She dances to the beat of her own drum, and doesn‘t care that most of her friends are going to the dance. She likes to do her own thing. 🥰 She stopped going a few years ago in solidarity with a friend after her friend‘s dad was arrested. She invites her friend to the movies with her each year so she doesn‘t feel left out. 3mo
4thhouseontheleft @Nebklvr I should also add I personally don‘t like events like this because I feel they can be exclusionary to some families. And we never call it a father/daughter “date” in our house, I just find that weird. (edited) 3mo

TrishB I love kids that go with their thing...😁 3mo
CouronneDhiver Enjoy it! 3mo
Nebklvr @4thhouseontheleft I agree about the date thing...ewww. I always felt dances were just another way of emphasizing whether you were “in” or not. Good on you for not raising a clone but someone willing to choose her own path whether that is going with or opting out. 3mo
Libby1 @4thhouseontheleft and @Nebklvr - thank Heaven someone else finds that creepy! Plantar F is the worst. I hope it heals up soon. 3mo
4thhouseontheleft @Libby1 Thank you! I‘ve been dealing with PF off and on since May. It‘s now usually better the next day if I ice it when it flares up. 3mo
MrsMalaprop I feel your PF pain. I did a lot of steps yesterday & know I‘m gonna struggle with it today ☹️. 3mo
cobwebmoth I hope your pain eases up soon.❤ 3mo

#jazz #quotsynov18

🎼 “It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good
I'm feeling good” 🎼

Rebesta I discovered Nina Simone years ago by accident in a Tower Records store. One of her albums was in a $.99 cent sale bin, and I picked it up. I‘ve loved her ever since. She covered and fixed many pop songs like Here Comes The Sun, Revolution, Just Like A Woman, and others. And the way she plays that piano is sublime! 7mo
Cathythoughts Great 👍🏻❤️. I was never a fan of jazz when I was young... but I‘m liking it as I age 🤷🏻‍♀️ (edited) 7mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Rebesta I just recently discovered her her and I‘m loving her!!! 7mo
See All 10 Comments
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Cathythoughts me either, but I just discovered her and loving her!! 7mo
Rebesta @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks - She makes it hard not to love her. When she plays and sings, she bares her heart and soul for all. It‘s one thing to be talented but quite another to share the deepest parts of your self with anyone listening. 7mo
Rebesta @Cathythoughts - Jazz is complex, telling you a story without words. The musicians know how to make those instruments speak to one another. It‘s like listening to a foreign language that you understand since each note or word is played with feeling. A lot of people don‘t get that or can‘t connect to it. I‘m glad you can. 😊 7mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Rebesta you‘re so right! I wish I had an old turntable with some old records ❤️ 7mo
Rebesta @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks - It would be fun to listen to them that way, but most of my Jazz is on CDs. Shhh! Don‘t tell the Jazz geeks! LOL. To be honest, you can just listen to Jazz categories on Spotify for free. It‘ll give you an overview of the different types of Jazz out there. Listening to Jazz is like reading. Not every Jazz band/musician will talk to every person. 7mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Rebesta I will do that!! Thank you!! ☺️☺️☺️☺️ 7mo
Rebesta 🙂 7mo

Kaye I didn‘t participate so can only say I feel sorry for those that didn‘t receive their packages. I guess this makes me feel a bit wary to sign up for one. I hope there‘s a way to keep track of those who had no intention of mailing out a gift so they won‘t be in the next group. 2y
