The #originoflove made me think of motherhood, and this amazing garden statue my husband gave me after our son was born. #maymoviemagic added some flowers from my roses and peonies.

Fridameetslucy Omg look whose speaking!! I would love to go 1d
Chrissyreadit @TimSpalding would it be possible to get some Litsy swag to order prior to this event? 1d
Chrissyreadit @Fridameetslucy I know!!! I love this event. But this year I will not attempt to go to the biggest headliners. There are many other amazing talks. 1d

#maymoviemagic #hookedonafeeling sort of had me think about the next line- high on believing - that led me to think about cults, so for anyone else who is interested in this topic here are more books- https://bookriot.com/2017/01/27/100-must-read-books-about-life-in-cults/

#bfc #bookfitnesschallenge I finished 1book. I did not quite meet my fitness goals- but I did not give up or have any moments of significant depression this week! I only made 1mile once, but walked between 1/2 and 3/4 of a mile on 3 other days. Stretched every day. Chair yoga once- but this weekend it will happen! And greatly appreciated this incredible community EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!

Happy Mother‘s Day!!! These are a picture of the books I have had since birth (the actual books are in the house my husband lives in.) They are a beloved treasure of mine. A gift from my mom ❤️❤️❤️

BiblioLitten The image is blurry. Litsy needs to fix the photo edit feature. 1w
kgriffith @BiblioLitten this is the only image I‘ve seen like this, so I‘m not sure that the image editor is the problem: it wouldn‘t only affect a single post by a single user. @Chrissyreadit, if your image wasn‘t low resolution or you have further problems with pics with posts and want us to take a look, email litsy@LibraryThing.com with details and we‘ll be happy to take a look. 1w
Chrissyreadit @BiblioLitten @kgriffith it‘s me- I expanded it to be bigger and more of a general image. It‘s a photo from the internet since my books are in a different location- but the only image of that particular publishing I could find. 1w

First day for #bookfitnesschallenge and I‘ve already changed my activity for today. I set up my raised beds, potted plants, partial weeding of one butterfly garden, anti-mosquito garden finished, and half of my “sitting” garden set up. Needed two rests, help from two teens and two showers. It was hard and that makes me sad, but I spent time doing something physical I love. Listened to tagged book. #icandohardthings

I can walk the perimeter of my property three times on nice days to make a mile- but need ideas for rainy days when pain is higher to get moments of movement in. (It is supposed to rain every day this week) #bookfitnesschallenge
There is still time to join! See @wanderinglynn to join- there are prizes for additional motivation!

Drocchio03 Your body is the best workout equipment. Consider lunges, squats, pushups, etc. If you‘re looking for something more passive, consider chair yoga. There are great videos on YouTube! 3w
Chrissyreadit @Drocchio03 thanks! I can try chair yoga. You tube sounds like a good possibility- depending on satellite signal. I have severe arthritis in my knees so right now cannot do anything more than walking - getting up and down are the difficult moves 😫 2w
ravenlee I saw an easy (ish) arm workout - do sets of overhead presses, tricep presses, and bicep curls - as many reps and sets as you can to feel a slight burn, and with no weights. This is just the weight of your arms. At the end, hold your arms straight up in the air above your head for 30-60 seconds. It‘s harder than it sounds! Work up to several repetitions over a day. 2w

Kaye Do you have access to a local pool ? Our gym offers water aerobics for seniors with arthritis. Much easier to exercise in the water for your joints. 2w
Drocchio03 @Chrissyreadit ouch! I‘m sorry to hear. Def look into chair yoga; good for the mind and the body. Now fingers crossed you can get service! 2w
mabell What a pretty location to walk! 😍 2w
Chrissyreadit @Kaye unfortunately it is too pricey for me, and sometimes when I‘ve gone on the free day it was too cold for me. 2w

Walk one mile in 3-4 chunks each day.
Tai Chi for Arthritis 3 days a week
Stretch every day.
Make at least one soup a week.

I have met survivors from concentration camps, and my great grandparents were Orthodox Jews who immigrated in the early 1900‘s. So I am glad to share @Cinfhen ‘s link about Israel‘s National Holocaust Remembrance Day and a book that I always thought gave perspective. https://www.illuminatethepast.org/

Cinfhen I‘ve been meaning to read this book💔thanks for putting it back on my radar and thank you for sharing the link 🙏🏻 3w
LibrarianRyan @Cinfhen this was one of my favorites growing up. Made me a lifelong Yolan fan. 3w
Cinfhen Have either of you seen the controversial IG account that launched a few days ago @LibrarianRyan @Chrissyreadit it‘s called Eva.Stories It‘s based on an actual diary of a girl named Eva who was living in Hungry before & during the Nazi invasion. Told through IG stories it‘s a photo journal retelling of Eva‘s real experience. It‘s a powerful visual!! 3w
See All 7 Comments
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen why is it. Controversial? @LibrarianRyan thanks for more info. I‘m going to look it up. 3w
Cinfhen Because some people feel using social media and making “Eva” a #hashtag is trivializing the Holocaust. That it marginalizes the true horror. I think it‘s a powerful teaching tool for this generation 🤷‍♀️ 3w
LibrarianRyan @Cinfhen I don't do instagram since it is owned by Facebook. But I had one for my library because you are correct, it is a great way to connect to the younger generation. Josh as an account, so I will take a peak when I get home. It sound interesting. 3w

#behindthewheel reminded me of this book that I need to read. Castledown was a favorite, but this third book came out so many years later that I was not able to read without rereading the first two and they were put back onto #mountbr where they may have turned into diamonds by the crushing weight above them. #maymoviemagic

Gissy @Chrissyreadit Thank you! This is an activity that we have chosen to relax ourselves. When we read, we transport ourselves to another world full of adventure that help us to manage the real world, so it should not be determined on how many books we read per month because we have family and other obligations that we have to take care of. It is a matter to enjoy the time we have to read!👍❤️❤️❤️❤️ 3w

How have I missed all of these??? Goodreads had a Beauty and The Beast retelling list- I know I have searched before and this did not pop up!!! @Cinfhen I‘m sure this is considered a sub sub-genre!!!! Ahhh my TBR is already toppling and ungainly 🥵but a readers got to do what a readers got to do....

I am about to begin stalking for the #summersolsticebookexchange #summersantagoespostal and discovered this book. Seems like a perfect one to add to #mounttbr. Hooray for @BookishMarginalia !

Gissy There are two more books in the series. I noticed that my match tbr is not accurate😱there are some books that the person already read😳Noooo! 3w
Chrissyreadit @Gissy agh!!! Yes- that‘s frustrating! I know I want to trim down my TBR because it is so long - but then it keeps starting me at the top again- and I‘m trying to make sure I‘ve taken all my books off that I received too- sigh. 3w

Cinfhen Really?!!!! Beauty and the Beast is your jam ❤️ 3w

Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen yes- but not from Disney. It was my favorite fairy tale I listened to before being able to read along with Edger Allen Poe‘s The Raven. Crazy how strongly early events imprint. 3w

mabell Great answers! In addition to “sunscreen” I would add “mosquito repellent” 😆 3w
Chrissyreadit @mabell I am planting a 10‘by6‘ anti mosquito garden behind our sitting area. All plants that repel mosquitos. Fingers crossed 3w
mabell Wow that‘s a good sized area! Sounds cool - let me know how it works! We‘ve tried everything! 3w
