Loving this lemon background #ManicMonday #LetterY 🍋💛

📖 tagged. So great and there are a few different audio versions on YouTube. I think my favorite is by Stephen Fry.

✍️ Wm. Paul Young

🎥 Yesterday

🎸 Young Knives

🎶 You Make My Dreams (Hall and Oates but every cover of this song is great too)

CBee Glad you like! It‘s chilly and dreary here so I figured a nice bright background might help 😊 4h
MatchlessMarie @CBee I am a little lemon obsessed. I have lemon things all over my house. Lemon mug, cutting board, burner covers, dish towels, water bottle, candles, etc. 😂 I love it. I think it started after I got into The Wombats last year they have 2 lemon adjacent songs (pink lemonade, lemon to a knife fight). Our weather is crud here too ☔️ 3h

@Catsandbooks I‘m sending several of my cards out in the mail tomorrow for #Valentinecardswap - the rest will go out on Tuesday as they‘ll require a bit of extra postage and I need to go to the post office. 💜♥️❤️

Catsandbooks Terrific! 💖💌 18h

Ordinary Light: A memoir | Tracy K. Smith

"...the narrator was...claiming the power to name and state and face the events, even the most awful events, making up a life. This has happened to me, and because I can see it, can call it up and face it again for you, can stand my ground while I sift through it for nuance and meaning, I am stronger. Telling my story, standing here and telling it to you now, is both a prayer for power and the answer to that prayer."

Suet624 How lovely. 21h

Pickpick

The writing is smooth and the imagery clear in this memoir of the author's loss of her mother just as the author was coming into adulthood herself. It's interesting to read about a military family in California, as mine was for many years, and about parents who were still energetic and engaged in raising their fifth child when my own parents were pretty checked out by number three. #bookspin for January

Suet624 #3 here too. We were each born five years apart so by the time I was 8 they were pretty done with a sensitive child. 20h
ImperfectCJ @Suet624 I was actually the firstborn, so I got the best of them and watched them tire as the other two came along (third is 7 years younger than me). Similar thing happened with my in-laws (I married another eldest of three). It informed our decision to have only two children. 20h
Suet624 Very thoughtful planning. 18h

ImperfectCJ @Suet624 I'm not sure...I wonder if I missed my chance to be an awesome parent to 7 or so children. (Not that I want to give birth to that many...) 18h
Suet624 I went for three kids but my third pregnancy was twins! A bit more than I expected. 😊 my kids were all 7 years apart and I have to say I made sure to have special time with all of them. Missed each one so fiercely when they went off to college. 17h
ImperfectCJ @Suet624 Ooh! My spouse wanted our first to be twins until he saw how huge I was with one baby (I'm 5'1" and he's 6'2"). My elder kid is a senior in high school now, and I'm already feeling the college transition. Just a few months away! ? 17h
