GlassAsDiamonds Same! On bed (not quite “in” but firmly on 😂) until I finish my book! 😊😊😊 1y
Cathythoughts Enjoy 😊... we are going out for lunch & then it‘s home & book for the afternoon, evening, & night 👍🏻😉 1y
HannaPolkadots Quite similar to yours 😉 Have wrapped myself in a blanket with a book and a cup of coffee- happy Sunday to you!🧡 1y

BarbaraBB It‘s 1130 AM here and I just get out of bed. The Boyne is addicting. The rest of the day will bring more reading, a yoga class and cooking Indonesian rendang for later this week (it needs to shimmer for hours!) 💕 1y
Cinfhen Yay for all these wonderful lazy Sunday‘s.... @HannaPolkadots @GlassAsDiamonds @Cathythoughts curious about your recipe @BarbaraBB 1y
WorldsOkayestStepMom It's 5:30 where I am, and I've been up all night finishing my book. Hopefully I will sleep for a few hours before watching football and a lazy Sunday with my husband! 1y
BarbaraBB I‘d e-mail it to you if it weren‘t in Dutch 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1y
Cinfhen Ha @BarbaraBB I‘m gonna google recipe for “rendang” 1y
sisilia Sunday 7.20pm - I had Japanese class, and I went to Ikea to buy Billy bookshelves for my empty wall. My books will be happier soon! 1y
ephemeralwaltz It's 1.30 pm here. I went to breakfast and a painting expo with a friend this morning and afternoon plans include yoga and netflix! 1y
BarbaraBB This one comes close to how I prepare it (my mother is Indonesian) 1y
Velvetfur I love those cute little flowers! What are they? 1y
DarcysMom It is early morning here. It is time for coffee, enjoying the cool morning air on the front porch, and reading. 1y
Cinfhen OMG!! @BarbaraBB Rendang is some serious business!!! It sounds delicious, thanks for sharing the recipe!!! I need to visit the shuk to get all of those spices. Have u been to Indonesia?? Do u have family there?? How cool 1y
Redwritinghood Well, I probably will do the laundry, but other than that some reading, some painting, and then roast chicken dinner with the family. 1y
Cinfhen I‘m not sure what type of flowers they are @Velvetfur but they make me feel happy 💛😊 1y
Cinfhen Sounds like a busy day @ephemeralwaltz glad you‘re feeling better 💚💚💚 1y
Cinfhen u paint @Redwritinghood ??? So cool, I didn‘t know that ❤️🙌🏻 1y
Cinfhen Happy books make a happy home @sisilia 😘😘your morning sounds wonderful @DarcysMom 💕💕💕 1y
ephemeralwaltz @Cinfhen Thank you!! 💜 Just drinking lots of water to get rid of my cough 😭 1y
Redwritinghood @Cinfhen Just for fun. I‘ve taken a few community art classes, but have no real training. I enjoy it, though, as well as figure drawing. 1y
Cinfhen I can‘t make a circle @Redwritinghood so I‘m in awe of anyone with even the slightest artistic ability 1y
BarbaraBB I think for a cook as I think you to be, it will be easy. Lots of spices indeed, but they‘ll have them in the shuk, and then it‘s quite easy. It‘s the shimmering that takes time 😀. I‘ve been to Indonesia twice. Once with my Mom, she showed me where she came from but there‘s no family living there anymore. The second time I showed my kids. 1y
KarenUK Enjoy your well deserved rest! 😘💕 1y
KarenUK @BarbaraBB @cinfhen There is a Rendang recipe in Chrissy Tiegen‘s new Cravings 2..... 😋🍽 1y
emilyhaldi Enjoy ☺️ 1y
Cinfhen Ohhh, ThTs good to know @KarenUK but I‘m gonna try @BarbaraBB authentic Rendang recipe!! Have u tried it? Have U made it before?? 1y
Cinfhen Are u also part Dutch @BarbaraBB ?? Do u celebrate the Muslim Holidays?? I love learning about my friend‘s traditions and customs. 1y
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen My father is Dutch and I feel very Dutch too. My mother‘s family arrived here shortly after the war so she grew up here as well (she was just a kid then). They are not Muslim but their culture is more pagan. There is a lot of superstition and they wholeheartedly believe in ghosts living among us. Stuff like that. I am very interested but much more Dutch myself! 1y
Cinfhen That‘s fascinating @BarbaraBB I totally believe in spirits and ghosts...I‘d love to read/learn more about it 1y
BarbaraBB You may be interested in this book then, it‘s all about spirits and ghosts as a totally accepted part of Indonesian culture. (edited) 1y
BarbaraBB And yes, it is fascinating ?! Next time it‘s your turn, to tell more about how you left the US for Israël. There must be a story there too. ❤️? 1y
Cinfhen Thanks for the book rec!! Stacked!!! And not much of a story but more of my hubby finally breaking me... he‘s always wanted to live in Israel @BarbaraBB 😉we met here as students on our gap year and it seemed fitting somehow🤩😌 1y
BarbaraBB Aha! Is your husband Israeli or American? Anyhow, you‘re choice turner out well I guess, as I remember some quite happy pics of the two of you 😍 1y

Cinfhen I needed to remember why I live 6000 miles away from the rest of my family @Cathythoughts while weather and beach is NOT the BEST reason it certainly is a nice perk 💕💕💕 (edited) 1y
TrishB Enjoy 💕 that‘s pretty much my life tag- laundry can wait and we always order in!! 1y
LauraBeth Well that view would perk me up too! When is the next time your family will all be together again? 1y
Cinfhen #GreatMinds @TrishB IDK @LauraBeth which is why I'm extra sad 😭 my son who!s been living in NY signed a lease in LA and he'll be out West starting Oct 4 😪😪😪so now we are really scattered 1y
LauraBeth @Cinfhen 😢😢 You‘re just going to have to make some plans to visit LA soon 🌞🌞I hate that you have such a geographical distance between your kids.Take comfort in knowing that you raised them well 😘 1y
Reviewsbylola I hope it did the trick! ♥️ 1y
Mdargusch It is hard to have family scattered! I hope that blue water perks you up! 1y
Cinfhen Thanks so much @LauraBeth 😘😘😘 @Reviewsbylola @Mdargusch I know you both feel the distance from @AnnieD but I am grateful that my kids are independent, responsible and capable (Thank God) and when we are together it‘s that much sweeter ❤️ 1y
Kalalalatja You should be proud that ypu raised such bad ass kids who are standing on their own feet and having all kinds of adventures! 👏👏 also, you do you! Relax and mope and ditch the chores and read ❤️ 1y
Cinfhen 😘😘😘😘 @Kalalalatja 1y
Leftcoastzen Beautiful! NY to LA , big change! 1y
Cinfhen I know @Leftcoastzen but he‘s been talking about it for awhile and he‘s super excited! LA suits his personality much better than NY 🤟🏼 1y
Centique What a beautiful place! 😍 I‘m sorry your family are spread far and wide. 💕Wish someone would hurry up and invent teleporting! 1y
Suet624 I‘m so sorry. Whatever happened to the old days when kids lived near their parents? 😁😁 two of my children live 3,000 mikes away and I miss them a ton. So fun when we see each other but always for much too short a time. 1y
Cinfhen Teleporting NEEDS to be a thing @Centique 😂😂and yes, why do kids feel the need to establish wings???? @Suet624 I‘m sorry you live far from your kiddos too 😢😢😢 1y
ElishaLovesBooks @Cinfhen sending lots of love 💕💕 I feel you on all counts! And this book is awesome! 1y
