I am spending this weekend on the middle peninsula of Virginia called the Northern Neck Rivah Country. I am staying at a house which backs to the Chesapeake Bay. This is the view but it is it raining. So I am enjoying my book.

ChasingOm My grandparents lived in the Northern Neck! Which town are you in? 1w
Graciouswarriorprincess @ChasingOm Montross. My better half used to live in Lancaster and his brother lives in Montross. We are visiting him. Where do your grandparents live? 1w
ChasingOm They lived out on Cole‘s Point, near Hague. We would drive through Montross to get there. 😄 1w
Graciouswarriorprincess @ChasingOm I know there. His brother lives in Cabin Point outside of Montross. I love that area. 1w

DGRachel On the bright side, you don‘t have to wait for Sonali Dev‘s book because the post office said it should be there Friday. 😉 2w
Graciouswarriorprincess @JanuarieTimewalker13 @swishandflick @baes. Thank you. I have plenty of other books to read but just couldn‘t believe that number. @DGRachel You are the best!!!! 2w
JanuarieTimewalker13 But that is truly a testament to how good the book is. I have to read this one!! It says for fans of Barbara Kingsolver, I‘ve only read one of her books, but I own a bind up that I still need to get to. That‘s the thing, most of us have owned books we need to get to! Maybe I‘ll get to this one by year end. The demand should be reasonable by then! 1w

Birdsong28 @Graciouswarriorprincess That is so good when you can do that. I once bought a library book that I had previously took out as it was on sale and when I had before I only used it to study with so I only read the chapters that I needed so now I can read the whole thing. 😁📚📖 2w

This is how I feel lately. The last two days have been hard and I feel like books are friends that understand you! I don‘t understand people sometimes. I am ok just want to retreat into books for a couple of days but unfortunately life doesn‘t allow that. But I knew that my Litsy friends would understand.

tpixie Yes, sometimes people are exhausting. Hugs! Hope the rest of your week is better!! ♥️📚♥️ 4w
Graciouswarriorprincess @tpixie Thank you. I am ok, just disappointed. I didn‘t get renewed for one of my running ambassadorships with no reason why other then the new program wasn‘t for me. This after I gave up time in San Francisco to work at the race expo when I could have spent the time with my son! No response back either when I sent an email asking why. Sometimes, I really dislike people. 4w
