It's been a heck of a week, Littens. I've spent the weekend recuperating and catching up on my reading and being incredibly lazy, but the best thing I did was go ahead and book a summer vacation. I cannot wait to get back up into the beautiful UP of #PureMichigan, and also can't wait to make vacation reading list!

At the Pond: Swimming at the Hampstead Ladies' Pond | Esther Freud, Margaret Drabble, Sophie Mackintosh

I love this question. Water has always felt an anchor to me, and many bodies of water have felt like "mine". I was lucky to grow up in Michigan, where no matter you are, you are never further than 6 miles from fresh water, and waterways both great and small- wild Lake Superior, the storied Detroit River, the small lakefront at my childhood summer camp- have become a part of me. What are your ties to the water, Littens? Is there water that's yours?

AmyG My son and family is in MI. His wife had a large pond behind her house. There are lakes and ponds everywhere. It‘s wonderful. I live in the Rocky Mtns…we have a small river by us…the Eagle River…here in Eagle county. Great question. (edited) 4mo
Andrea313 @AmyG Thanks for sharing! I love rivers! Is your Eagle River one you swim in (or kayak, etc) or one you simply enjoy by being near? 4mo

AmyG The Eagle river runs through the county. When the snows melt you can see it get higher. In the summer there is rafting and fishing. No swimming. But I can see it from my house and pass it every day. 4mo
Andrea313 @AmyG Riverfront view, swoon! 😍 4mo
AmyG Ha…it‘s not a riverfront view. I just see a tiny part of it…..if I lean over on the deck and look in a certain spot. 😂 And it‘s a very small river, at least where I am. 4mo
Andrea313 @AmyG I still say it counts! 😂 4mo
AmyG Ha! Technically.🤣 4mo

I‘m super proud of myself for starting a book which I‘ve had stacked by my bed for many months!

LitStephanie Good job! Can totally relate. 4mo
CrowCAH @LitStephanie I‘ve put books by my bed, thinking if they‘re near I‘ll get to them first, but it always seems like another book is more interesting. Lol 4mo

One of my favorite local Indie bookstores was advertising the release of this one today. It is a new to me author but I'm still super excited that 1. It takes place in Traverse City and 2. It's signed by the author. I am planning on saving this one until we start seeing actual 🌨❄☃️

The Lido | Libby Page
post image
Pickpick

This beautiful book is a love story on multiple levels- that of life-long partners, of friends new and old, and love of a community. Mostly it made me reflect on how lucky I am to have my own local lido (pictured here closed for cold weather). Detroit's Brennan Pool opened in the 1920s, and was the site of the US swimming Olympic trials in the 1950s. Now I get to spend my sunny days here, and I'm reminded not to take that for granted.

JamieArc Oooh I didn‘t know about this pool. I loved this book too. It‘s a dream to live near a community pool one day. #mittenlitten (edited) 7mo

Finally went to the library for the first time in two years! It felt so good to walk into that gorgeous building; these stamps and stickers are making my day. ♥️📚❤️ #LibraryLove #DetroitPublicLibrary #MittenLitten #DetroitLove

LiteraryinLawrence What a good feeling! 💗 8mo
sharread Wow the Detroit Public Library. Awesome. The last time I was there I was 17. Did you goto the DIA too? 7mo
Andrea313 @sharread No, unfortunately, just into the library and on my way! The DIA was one of the first places in Detroit to fully re-open, though, IIRC; I should head over there soon. 7mo
