The Most Fun We Ever Had | Claire Lombardo
post image

Why yes, I AM reading this delightful book in my housecoat on the front porch 😀

I have fond memories of my grandmothers wearing housecoats when I was growing up. In moment of nostalgia I bought a housecoat a few years ago and it‘s basically been my favorite thing ever since.

Laura317 This makes me want one! My Mamaw‘s were more like house dresses or muu-muu. 2d
Smrloomis Awww, that‘s sweet. Now I think I need a housecoat, too 😆 2d
Cathythoughts Cosy !! Looking forward to this book too 2d
Hoopiefoot @Laura317 @Smrloomis @Cathythoughts It‘s the best thing ever. Can‘t recommend it enough! I think I found mine at Kohl‘s. 2d
marleed I love your house coat story! 2d

Family vacation in the mountains. Time for Aunt Hoopiefoot to have some quiet time on the porch after a day of running, basketball, mini golf, swimming in the lake, and exploring. My nieces and nephews are adorable but exhausting!

I love getting new library books!

I have a cool work perk in that I can get my library holds delivered to my office. But I realized a few months ago that it meant I NEVER went to the library. I switched things up recently and now pick my holds up at the local library. A tiny bit less convenient, but it‘s really nice to wander the stacks and feel more connected to the community.

I finished this book last night and have to say that it shook me to my very core.

Not quite able to let the book go yet (and I‘m not sure I ever will), so I‘m listening to Philip Glass‘ “Metamorphosis” on repeat this morning. I read that Valeria Luiselli listened to this work while she was writing the book and so it‘s helping me feel more connected to everything.

Moray_Reads Love Philip Glass. A couple of years ago I saw an opera of The Trial by Franz Kafka composed by Glass. I'm not a big opera fan but it was excellent 4mo
Hoopiefoot @Moray_Reads I was a music major in college and piano was my main instrument but somehow I never spent much time with his works. I‘m sad I missed the chance to play them back then but really enjoy discovering them now. (edited) 4mo
