Grandma's Gift | Eric Velasquez

It‘s been a tough few days- my Grandma Sally passed away last Thursday. She was the person who taught me how to read, took me to countless story hours, and helped me get my first library card. She always had a book recommendation for me, and she was usually spot on. She didn‘t usually write in the books she gave me, but I‘m so happy she broke tradition for the book photographed, Harry Potter & the Sorcerers Stone.

Smrloomis So sorry that she‘s gone 🧡🧡🧡 10mo

It was a low-key Christmas this year. My big “gift” was getting insurance approval and receiving a DexcomG6 so that took precedence over books, for once. 😝 Either way- I‘m super excited about my mini #bookhaul and can‘t wait to read all three!

Tamra Looks like excellent reading time! 12mo

Leigh0906 @Djspens the G6 is amazing- I‘m on a Minimed pump, but I‘m hoping to switch to the Tslim in 2019. The Basal-iq prediction stuff has me salivating! @MinDea I have a friend who said the book changed the way she cooked, but I held out on the book until I saw the Netflix show. You‘re right- so good! 11mo

Flood waters down- clean up begins. My hometown, Whiteville, has been devastated. I‘ve never seen it flood this bad. Thanks #Littens for all your thoughts and well wishes during Flo. My husband‘s Granny has power so we‘re camped out with her until the routes to Wilmington reopen. In the meantime, we‘re helping Granny clean her store downtown. Hope everyone else in the path of Flo fared well!

Y‘all the rain is never ending. We got a text from Duke Energy that they‘re starting to restore power in Wilmington. Not that it matters because most of the roads are flooded so we can‘t get home. Bright side- my in-laws house didn‘t get damaged, I‘ve got a ton of books to read, and the generator has plenty of fuel. Hope the rest of the #littens in Flo‘s path are doing okay!

I managed to get to the library before they closed, and I‘ve maxed out my loans on #Libby. We‘ve evacuated to the in-laws, charged the battery packs, and bought extra batteries for my “reading” lantern.

Hope all the other #littens in Eastern North Carolina and the path of Florence stay safe!

Lcsmcat How far inland did you go? We‘re in Wake County and are staying put, but our daughter and her crew from Greenville are here for the duration. 1y
mrozzz Stay safe! 1y
Leigh0906 @lcsmcat we went about 40ish miles inland from Wilmington to Clarkton. We‘re less worried about the wind/power loss than the flooding- our place in Wilmington isn‘t in the projected flood zone, but we didn‘t want to risk it! I don‘t blame your daughter for leaving Greenville- I remember Floyd, and it was awful! 1y
