#90sinJuly #ItWasAGoodDay I've been trying to be more mindful, practice gratitude & find at least one simple thing in each day that delights me & reminds me that it was a good day & it's a good life. The line & poem in the pic captures that & this book of poetry-a #blameitonlitsy library e-book checkout-is beautiful, meaningful & makes me want to read more from Mary Oliver. I like how she communicates the beauty & power of nature in her words.💜📚
Not from this book but actually a tweet from her Twitter account on May 17, 2013. It's amazing that someone who went through everything she did could still find the beauty in the world and know #itwasagoodday
May she RIP
Last year I met Mary Higgins Clark and for me #itwasagoodday! I bought one of her books in a used bookstore when I was about 10 and that book helped me fall in love with reading. As a young child with social anxiety to discover the escapism that comes with reading has made me a more social person and helped my introverted self face the world! So to meet one of my favorite authors at 89 years old was an incredible experience! #90sinJuly
Lordy.. #ItWasAGoodDay. I've heard of this facsimile edition of her herbarium. I priced it at $765-$2000+ and figured I'd never see a copy. Then I checked the state library system.. and I could check out a copy! 😱It sits on my dining room table and I'm in awe. She worked so hard compiling her flower collection.

For #ItWasAGoodDay I'm sharing some pictures from my recent trip to Quebec. Each day of the trip was great! I'd love to read some more books set in Canada, especially Montreal or Quebec. Suggestions welcome! #90sinJuly @Robothugs @Cinfhen
#itwasagoodday today as I got to see an old friend while she's back in the US (she's working in China). We had a yummy dinner with a great dessert. Then I came home to find out the husband ran into some issues with installing the door so hope that's fixed or I won't sleep tonight 😖
