Finally tried my hand at #audiocrocheting, as I‘ve been meaning to for forever. You Littens inspired me! So far, I‘ve made one wobbly bookmark, one long string crocheted so tightly I couldn‘t get my hook in there to do anything else with it, and one hopefully passable beginning at a very small blanket.

I also finished Gina Sheridan‘s “I Work at a Public Library” today. It was a riot! I could not stop bursting out with laughter every other page.

Whoa — my heart needs a lift. After Adichie‘s stunningly tragic Purple Hibiscus and then this collection of heart-breaking, amazingly crafted stories from Alice Walker, I reach for some lighter fare. But wow do these women have a gift for putting me in the story and slowly wrenching my heart out.

kyraleseberg @Linsy I miss you too!!! We're doing well; I register H for Kindergarten next month so she'll start in August. We're prepping the garden for April so that's keeping us excited for the hope of warm weather! How have you & the family been? I was going through photos from UT last week and realized I still need to send you the photos from our day at the dinosaur park! 3mo
Linsy @kyraleseberg Oh my goodness, Kindergarten? I can‘t believe she‘s getting so old! I wish I could come and see your garden and girl! We‘re doing well. I‘m recovering from a really annoying ankle injury from over Christmas — I tried to climb over a couch — but all else is great. James is getting way too smart, growing like crazy and running us wild. We took him to the climbing gym for the first time yesterday — Shayne climbs — it was adorable! 3mo
Linsy @kyraleseberg He refused to let go of Shayne for even one second even though he was one inch off the ground. ☺️ 3mo
kyraleseberg Ooh you have an up & coming professional climber on your hands! That'll put your blood pressure to the test as he grows, lol! I hope your ankle is better soon & I'm glad to hear you all are doing well. I hope we'll be back in Utah in the next 2-3 years & we'd love to see you all again ❤️ 3mo

I‘ve been so spoiled!!! I love everything, @Booksnchill, thank you so much! Some of the books are on my TBR, others I can‘t wait to learn about. Little did you know that I‘ve been crafting lately, so I‘m excited to try my witch-themed crafts! I‘ve never had tarot cards, so I couldn‘t help opening them already. They‘re beautiful! I love the maleficent chapstick and witchy lotion, too. And there‘s a frog in the mug! I love it all! #witchpleaseswap

Booksnchill So pleased- I noted you recently posted about Hex but it was after the box was sent! You mentioned crafting and that you were interested in the nature/witchcraft connection so I thought the tarot cards and book on wicked plants would be of interest! So glad you liked it! 7mo
