I apologize because I opened my #SpringEquinoxSwap box today but yesterday I came home late, exhausted and starved. Today, everything hurts and I think I overexposed to the sun and I didn‘t participate in the ironman, I was only a volunteer🤣🤪But today I opened it. I wanted to enjoy this process and I love it😱😍 @TheBookHippie Love the books including the under the dust jacket (that pink color 💖 so pretty that edition of An Old Fashioned Girl⬇️

Gissy The Garden Planning & Journal is fantastic in how the content is organized but I also love the cover. I‘m a sucker with vintage covers😍So lovely the bookmark message. I‘m a bookmark collector🤗The Ostara book, yes!! That will help, expand my knowledge in this topic. Thank you so much! I‘m very grateful for everything. Once again my apologies for open the box late but I wanted to really enjoy the process, it was worth to wait🥰 (edited) 6mo

tpixie @Gissy what a busy day! Great Bookish treats! That pink 💖 is gorgeous! 6mo
Gissy @Chrissyreadit It was! 🤗 6mo
Gissy @tpixie Yes!😍 6mo
mabell Great job volunteering! Especially since it sounds like it wasn‘t an easy one! 6mo
Gissy @mabell It wasn‘t easy. It was so hot at noon. Some athletes were really suffering. I even applied sunblock to some of them☺️The first place winner is a Brazilian person living in Boston. He said that it was hard for him because he used to do his training indoor, I guess like in a gym or something. He said he was slow just to have enough energy to complete the event. His overall time? 4:14 whaaat? yeah, he was slow🤔😳😱 (edited) 6mo
mabell Slow???!! 🤣🤣 I would think it would be totally different training in a gym - then swimming in the ocean! 6mo

Not book related but I wanted to share that today I couldn‘t read much and my #SpringEquinoxSwap box is still unopened because I was since 3:45 am in the half Ironman event giving support to my fiends. I ran like 4 miles to continue with that support to one of them and worked in one of the water station as a volunteer.

TheBookHippie Wow!!! That‘s impressive! Enjoy when you open. I hope you love it. 6mo
Chrissyreadit Nice!!!! It sounds like a great day 💚😘 6mo

DaveGreen7777 You‘re such a good friend! 😊 6mo
Gissy @tpixie Yes! Today I have been in bed, resting and watching videos about books. I tried to read but I can‘t concentrate🤷🏽‍♀️ 6mo
Gissy @DaveGreen7777 Well, we are a team. They were so supportive with me during my December 2021 sprint triathlon. In this type of sport you need that support. I‘m so proud of them! It was a hard race even for the elite group as I read in the news today but they did it💪 6mo
Gissy @Suet624 It was fantastic! I wish I could do it sometime. 6mo
Gissy @BookwormAHN Thank you! There were many participants from different states. Some of them were struggling with the sun but they did it💪 6mo
Suet624 I can‘t imagine trying to do that! 6mo
tpixie @Gissy sounds like a great recovery day! 6mo
Gissy @Suet624 I really don‘t know if I can but I just signed for another sprint next June. It is not the same but I can practice the swim part 6mo
WJCintron Well done!!! 😃 🙌 Keep rocking and supporting others! And don't forget to rest and do some self care! 6mo

I‘ll start with the mug. The mug filled with garden tools! Mugs are special to me. I love coffee. I love my mornings (especially now that I‘m not that busy with freelancing)—leisurely and filled with reading and word games. And I love mugs. Mugs I‘ve been given or mugs I‘ve purchased, but most importantly, memories of where and how I ended up with the coffee receptacle. #springequinoxswap @Chrissyreadit @sprainedbrain

Chrissyreadit Im so glad! 😘😘😘😘I loved a mug tied into gardening! 6mo

MittenGirlPeach @BookBosomed1 it‘s absolutely beautiful! I‘m spending time with it this morning. 6mo
Chrissyreadit What word games do you play? 6mo
MittenGirlPeach @Chrissyreadit I play wordle, quordle, and Semantle, and I usually give the Times crossword a try as well. The first three are part of my morning routine now; really enjoyable! 6mo

I wanted to show off the gorgeous package I received from @Chrissyreadit for the #springequinoxswap. I was thinking about what I love so much about the swaps, and it came to me: it‘s the magic. The magic of getting excited about both giving and receiving. The magic within trying to find the right gifts and being so excited to open the gifts someone else so carefully chose. It‘s the best. 🧡

Texreader That‘s beautiful!! 6mo
sprainedbrain I agree completely! This giving is such a gift. ❤️ 6mo

wanderinglynn Love that wrapping paper! 💜 And I completely agree with you. It is magical. 6mo
Chrissyreadit @wanderinglynn I totally cheated on wrapping paper. I found large dinner napkins I fell in love with and am using them wherever they fit. I May do this for everything because I always see napkins I love 😆 6mo
Chrissyreadit I love your thoughts and wording. I feel the same way 💚 6mo

@wanderinglynn My #springequinoxswap📦 is ah-mazing. I ❤️ it all; it was such a joy to open. I am ecstatic about the Herbiary book & cards, forest bathing book & journal, and to learn more about Ostara. I also ❤️all of the Japanese treats, stickers, candle, 🫖 , banner w/ pins, socks, face masks, moon light, & candle. I couldnt capture everything in the photo bc it you were so generous. Thank you! 🙏 for hosting, @Chrissyreadit @sprainedbrain

@Gissy Thank you so much for my wonderful #springequinoxswap box! #SES I absolutely love the incense kit and cute Taurus notebook! The candle smells amazing as well 🥰 You put together a fantastic box! @Chrissyreadit @sprainedbrain

Gissy I‘m so happy you liked it! I read and your zodiac sign stone is green, the crystal was another color. I hope I‘m right. That is the reason the bookmark stone is green. It was so fun to read about zodiac topics. I couldn‘t resist and when I saw that pretty cover of Dreams Lie Beneath, I bought one to myself☺️Enjoy your reading!🥰 6mo
kellyann28 @gissy yes! You did a fantastic job and everything is so pretty! Thank you again! 💚 6mo

@BookBosomed1 And here is the unwrapped version along with the extra tea & book you sent when you thought it wouldn‘t make it on time. I feel very blessed! The books are perfect-Ostara & the tagged book will be fun to go through this week. Waking the Witch & Moon Spell Magic look fascinating & Cackle has been on my list forever. Love the crystals, local chocolate bar & assorted teas & honey sticks. I think I ⬇️

@BookBosomed1 Lindsey, I had to post 2 photos of my amazing #SES box & still didn‘t capture how wonderful it is! This is the “just out of the box” one & the wrap is gorgeous & will be recycled in a junk journaling or paper craft. The journal is beautiful & I love the tools you have given me to fill it with the washi tape, stickers, pens & book of Forest Witch ephemera & that amazing journaling magazine! Thank you!💚💙

Chrissyreadit 💚😍💛😍💚 6mo
