@jenniferw88 I opened your lovely #staycationintimeswap and I love every bit! The coloring book is so charming and I can‘t wait to read all of the books, though I‘m starting with the tagged book. Can you see the bookmark? It says “Talk Darcy to Me” 😁 Now, if anyone needs me tell them I left for Pemberley and I won‘t be back soon! Thank you Jenny and @Chrissyreadit what a great swap! 📚💕

jenniferw88 😊 please let me know how the tagged one is - it's the only one I sent you that I haven't read! 😂 2y
Ireadkidlit Oh I shall! Thank you Friend~I am actually giddy, with a high that only comes from new books and loose leaf tea! And my husband‘s out of town, so I have lots of uninterrupted reading time. Yeah! 2y
Kdgordon88 OMG! That bookmark is the bomb! 2y
Chrissyreadit This is a perfect staycation! I love the bookmark too! 2y

Couldn‘t wait any longer for the last book! At last @jenniferw88 your #staycationintimeswap is on the move. Hope it reaches you by opening day! But the book I‘m still waiting for was kind of the whole unifying theme, darn it! I‘ll just send it (3/3) as soon as it arrives.
Our poor USPS is the newest target of our (corrupt, IMO) administration, so that plus COVID are making for delays I‘ve never seen. I‘m really sorry. Also, thx @Chrissyreadit

jenniferw88 That's ok with me - it will be a nice surprise when the last book arrives! 2y
Ireadkidlit ...and I‘m hoping to buy your love with the dark chocolate! 😃 I sent it frozen, but it might do better if you pop it in the freezer when it arrives—you know jet lag and all~ Thanks for understanding 💕 2y

I love how accessible NDT makes this subject! He narrates in such an engaging way—the audiobook is the only way to fly! Yes, there were times I got temporarily lost in the chemistry, but he circles back for us non-pros.
I particularly liked how he wove the history of astronomy throughout; introduced readers to the ‘stars‘ of the interdisciplinary sciences😄; his clear analogies; his humor; and his reminder to take the “cosmic perspective.” ❤️

Mask-maker, Mask-maker, make me a mask!
I‘m making reusable masks to send to The Bronx—using a pattern posted by Deaconess. I‘ve made more than 100 so far. Not as valuable as N95s of course, but the nurse I spoke with said they can use them for non-contact workers, patient companions or mask liners for staff.

“The Revolution will not be Televised [until after midnight].” Gil Scott-Heron was a supremely talented poet, soul and jazz artist, and a progenitor of rap.
Sometimes when I want/need poetry in a moment, I pull up a song on Apple Music and let the lyrics stream. Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, Gil, and so many great poets are in my playlists.

Putting together the menu for Christmas Eve, I realized the book that I reference more than any other (TBH, this includes my desk calendar or Bible) is my sister‘s cookbook. I credit @Julsmarshall and her husband for all of my (few) holiday culinary wins. Following directions=delicious results, even with ADHD!😃
In case of fire—Heaven forbid—this is the book I grab (okay, calendar and Bible too)!

Watching the 1999 adaptation with Patrick Stewart as Ebenezer—I believe it‘s the first time I‘ve seen it from the very beginning. Dominic West as his nephew and Richard Grant as Bob Cratchit, the whole cast is amazing! Favorite version of my favorite Christmas story ♥️.

Lauraandherbooks I have been looking for this one- I love it; seen it last year but haven‘t been able to find it 2y
Ireadkidlit I found it free on demand with my cable provider (xfinity), but I wonder if it might be found by searching your streaming or satellite provider? Saw The Rise of Skywalker yesterday (LOVED), and it was kind of jarring to see sweet Bob Cratchit over on the dark side as not-sweet Allegiant General Pride (Richard E. Grant) 😄 Love that actor! 2y

We‘re a Lego family; so even though my high schoolers are a little old for a Lego Advent calendar, I couldn‘t resist.
They trade off every morning building the little treasure. A couple days ago, Anna said, “Mom you made the calendar!” Apparently I‘m the lady reading a large book, lamp side, on the edge of the curling pond 😄
