Popped into a very stately home in the next village to ours - we were there for the celebrations, but on returning home I see 90% of my photos are of the gorgeous inlaid walnut and cherry bookcases lining the library walls!

Autumn feels

My #HalloweenBucketList for #Scarathlon is really more of an Autumnal Bucket List, as I don't (ironically haha) “do“ Halloween. The leaves are really starting to kick over, so we went for a beautiful drive yesterday afternoon. Ohio gets dogged on a lot for being boring, but apparently those people have never spent the afternoon tooling around the southeastern part of my state ❤

ncsufoxes My husband has family that lives in southern Ohio (near & in Portsmouth). His uncle has a farm in the area & it‘s one of our favorite places to visit. We were there for a few days this summer. 4mo
TheAromaofBooks @ncsufoxes - We didn't make it quite that far yesterday, but the whole area down there is SO pretty! We'll probably go for another drive this coming weekend as the trees are looking fabulous!! 4mo

I have taken a break from reading for the last month or so and in doing so I have picked up on a new hobby (for me). Who new I would finally pick up video games? But I am now a bit behind on my #litsylove this month. I will be getting back on that though!!!!🤞🤞🤞🤞

monalyisha This happened to me at the height of the pandemic and I didn‘t read nearly as much as I always imagined I would if I didn‘t have to go to work every day! I have regrets. BUT - diving into Animal Crossing was so fun! 4mo
wisherwishinguponastar @monalyisha I was so excited to get Jack‘s portrait in the mail this morning! Even if I am not reading spooky books I am crafting spooky items on my island! It is such a nice game. 4mo
monalyisha @wisherwishinguponastar I‘ve thought about playing again — just for Halloween. But I‘m afraid of falling into a hole, haha. My husband DID just re-up our Nintendo Online subscription, though, so it‘s suddenly become a bit more tempting. Feel free to tag me if you post pics of your island! 😉 4mo
wisherwishinguponastar @monalyisha Absolutely! I was going to try to build a library on my island and post it on here. Let me know if you decide to play for Halloween! 4mo

Another good installment in the bedtime reading genre.

A heavy dose of Egyptian history, with a description of ancient sites. The book primarily covers the area of Nubia (now under Lake Nasser) and Thebes/Luxor. The commentary on the sites struck me as a bit odd until I realized the book is meant to be a tour guide, as well. There is a lot of - “And on your left, you will see a relief of Ramses II on his chariot in battle.”

mabell One unresolved question regards the defaced tomb of Menna. Why was his face erased in all the depictions? The book gives a reason (Menna usurped the tomb, and the family members of the original owner got revenge); however, I cannot find confirmation of that theory!

Librarybelle Yay for good bedtime reading! And I love armchair traveling! 5mo
mabell @Librarybelle I agree about armchair travel! Sometimes it‘s more enjoyable then the real thing 😆 5mo

I knew Animal Crossing was addictive, but I didn‘t appreciate HOW addictive until I bought it for myself 🤣 Since Tuesday my BF and I have been pretty much just passing the controller back and forth. The island is mine and he is a secondary character, so he just fills up the museum and sells fish and bugs all day 🤣

Resisting the urge to steal centre pieces is more difficult on some days than others…
