Father, We Thank You | Ralph Waldo Emerson
post image

We are reading Emerson right now in my 11th grade co-taught English class. I bought this book of his poem, “ Father, We Thank You” because its impressionist style illustrations are quietly beautiful.

💇‍♀️ A much-overdue haircut on Wednesday (it‘s ~8 in. shorter!)
📚 Seeing a family walking in my neighborhood & noticing one of the kids lagging behind the rest… because she was reading a book while walking.💜
🥗 Dinner with one of my best friends (pictured is the amazing salad I had!)
🗣️ Encouraging conversations as I‘m gathering info on becoming a spiritual director
🍽️ Looking forward to lunch tomorrow with another close friend

1. The eclipse…got to see it with my special glasses.
2. Booked a trip to see our Grandson in May.
3. Our daughter is coming for the summer because she got permission to work remotely.
4. I had a wonderful indie music chat with a friend‘s son. ( like books…I can talk music all day long)
5. I saw mountain goats!

Thank you for the book, I followed your instructions and ordered already the 2nd book😃I‘m going to use the key as a bookmark, so pretty to not use it😍That candle smells so good and I even like the card and that vintage touch of the envelope. Thank you so much for this #ThinkingOfYou meaningful detail. Thank you for having me in your thoughts, for this surprise. I‘m very grateful for them but more importantly for having your friendship.

The Hoboken Chicken Emergency | Daniel Manus Pinkwater
post image

Either you find Pinkwater's snarky, offbeat humor to be hilarious, or you find it to be completely bizarre and not particularly funny. I'm in the pro-Pinkwater camp and while this isn't as funny as The Snark-Out Boys and the Avocado of Death, it's still great fun.

TheSpineView Fantastic! 3mo
UwannaPublishme This Jersey girl loves to see any book that mentions Hoboken! 😁 3mo
TheAromaofBooks @UwannaPublishme - So many of his books take place in and around Hoboken!! He's lived there a long time. Even when he doesn't specify Hoboken, you still get that feeling haha 3mo

Than you @MommyofTwo for this lovely card. As you know, I love the stickers😍👌It was a lovely gesture to send the card. Yes, I miss the #CBBC this year but I have great recommendations from the books we shared. A big hug to you and your family. Thank you to @Mommamanzi for a 2023 successful #CBBC


Great book about the eating habits of the pilgrims! In the last chapter before the glossary there‘s a bunch of child friendly recipes!
