That was fun! Interesting that all but one of my answers was in the right hand column. See @rather_be_reading for the template.

Hot weather has finally said goodbye. Citrus are back in the Limonaia. I have my Fridstool back. Limonaia & Fridstool; words I learned from reading. "Fridstool is a seat of refuge, of sanctuary." My Fridstool is my Yoga Mat. ?‍♀️

Crinoline_Laphroaig Limonaia becomes a Cactus house in the Summer. Fall through Spring it's home to 4 Lemon trees, 4 Limes and various plants that can't survive winter in Oklahoma. Limonaia - "a garage-sized room on the side of the house once used for storing pots of lemons over the winter." ??? 1mo
ChasingOm Lovely! I have the same refuge on my mat. 🧘🏻‍♀️ 1mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @ChasingOm It's been a crazy few days. Getting back on my mat this morning truly saves me. 1mo

An excellent mix of anthropology, archaeology, and a simple conversation takes place between Dr. Michael Coe and the reader. He recounts stories of traveling the world as a young Mayanist and what life was like for his family.

A four-day weekend with absolutely no plans, and for two of those days, I'll have the house completely to myself. Considering taking on the tagged book. I've been hesitating because of the impact everyone talks about after reading it. I may barricade myself in my library all weekend. #MyHappyPlace #LoveMyLibrary

AmyK1 I‘ve hesitated on that one for the same reasons. 3mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Good luck - I found this book more annoying than emotionally exhausting, but that‘s my unpopular opinion! 😬 Also - what‘s your model ship? 😍😍 (edited) 3mo
Tamra Lucky you, enjoy! 😁 3mo

AmyG Such a good book. Enjoy your “you” time. 3mo
goodbyefrancie @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled The ship's name is Belem. I picked up 8 or 9 of them at an estate sale, all in various sizes. Total impulse buy, but they are so interesting and detailed! 3mo
SaraFair What a lucky girl! 3mo
marleed Oh have a great weekend - so good fo the soul to move about in your unusually empty house from time to time. And great pics! 3mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled That‘s super cool. We have some model ships in the house too - none that big though. That‘s awesome 👍 3mo
Cortg In all honesty, it was a tough book to read with some of what happens but it's so, so, so good! 3mo
Reggie If you read this book, tag on 2 days for the sad funk it leaves you in. Enjoy!!! Lol 2mo
perfectsinner It's on my want-to-reads list. 2mo

Alternate Side: A Novel | Anna Quindlen

Nora and Charlie Nolan have raised their twins in Manhattan. They are successful and growing apart. An incident in their neighborhood involving a violent dispute between a neighbor and a handyman results in tearing apart the community. Charlie wants to leave the City, but to Nora, it is inconceivable. This book tackles many social problems, but ultimately, it is about Nora‘s love for New York. #booked2019 #myhappyplace

Cinfhen Woohoo!! Another prompt completed ♥️ 8mo

Starting this for #Booked2019, #myhappyplace. Written by Dr. Michael Coe, grandson of William Robertson Coe of Coe Hall. That happens to be the museum I give tours in over the summer! This is one of the only hints of scandal, but I always assumed Mai Coe had an affair with Everett Shinn... but that's not in the guidebook!
