WOW.
This book is intense.
This woman does not stay down.
I got a little 🤬 when she was explaining about her marriage to Rab and his behaviour.
I know what it's like to be cast out and isolated when you move to a new place and try to make it home. This lady does not quit, she followed her instincts and listened to her body and the earth.
She did not quit!

Throughout all of just I haven't posted anything about pride month which is shocking for me, I haven't done it because I don't need a month to celebrate who and what I am but I understand the need for pride for others so I'm going to #pride bomb you all with some of my favourite #LGBTQ book's

Sunday's are for stripping the bed/ cleaning then get distracted start shopping on amazon and forget to finish cleaning, now I have no motivation.
Picture of #Rudi sleeping 🐈 he had some chicken from Sunday dinner I think he's stuffed.

What do you all do on Sunday's?
#catsoflitsy #Rudi

slategreyskies I like to read on Sundays. I also always do a load of dishes and often fold laundry while my husband goes for a walk. We also always listen to the same classical radio station all day. Fairly simple, I suppose, but it‘s calming and helps us reset for the coming week. ✨ 1mo
kaysworld1 @slategreyskies I do the same thing have the radio on all day on smooth channel. 1mo
Suet624 Every Sunday is different but today I gardened, napped, and read for hours on my porch while the Red Sox played on the radio. 1mo

Suet624 For the first time in many many years I‘m not working this summer. I‘m slowly easing into the idea that I don‘t have to constantly be doing something. It‘s harder than it looks. But I‘m going to master it. 1mo
kaysworld1 @Suet624 and it sounds like you deserve it too. The art of doing nothing I think there's there's word for that but I can't remember it, I'll Google it. 1mo

I went to Carlisle with my best friend on Saturday it was my first time experiencing nando's. David did toy shopping and I did book shopping, here's my new book journal I got from Waterstones.

How do you keep track of the book's you read?

julesG I like this journal. I've tried all sorts of pen&paper tracking, in the end Goodreads probably has the best account of what I've read. 2mo
kaysworld1 @julesG Mines mainly Litsy and goodreads but I wanted to try pen to paper again. Hope you're well xxx 2mo
Suet624 I used to keep a journal, but now it's mostly Litsy and Goodreads. 2mo

So in honour of the day I am going to spam you with books and poem's that I have read and recommend.

Tagged book I'm currently reading 📚

kaysworld1 @Yuki_Onna Go ahead. I'll spam everyone with poetry and books to make up for missing it xx 3mo
Yuki_Onna @kaysworld1 Honey, some suggestions for the #AprilPoetrySwap :
Poetry that's hard to get here I'd love to try is by Lord Byron, Lord Alfred Tennyson or Lewis Carroll.
Specific poetry books I'd love to receive are Pillow Thoughts or Pillow Thoughts II by Courtney Peppernell (I already have PT III) or Ariel by Sylvia Plath. 😊

French Braid by Anne Tyler
The Garretts take their first and last family vacation in the summer. They hardly ever leave home, but in some ways they have never been farther apart. Mercy is resisting her aspirations to be a painter, which means less time keeping house for her husband, Robin. Their daughters Alice and Lily. Their youngest, David, is already intent on escaping

Book recommendation from The Sun On Sunday newspaper. Reputation by Sarah Vaughan
As a politician, Emma has sacrificed a great deal for her career including her marriage and her relationship with her daughter, Flora.
The glare of the spotlight is unnerving for Emma, particularly when it leads to countless insults, threats, trolling as she tries to work in the public. As a woman, she knows her reputation is worth its weight in gold.

Jess needs a fresh start. She‘s broke and alone, and she‘s just left her job. Her brother Ben didn‘t sound thrilled when she asked if she could crash with him for a bit, but he didn‘t say no.
The longer Ben stays missing, the more Jess starts to dig into her brother‘s situation the more questions she has.

As you all know I went the Lake District recently it was a great short break I did lots of walking and resting. On the way home I got on the wrong bus and ended up in Kendal which I didn't mind because I visited my favourite artisan shop and bought a new journal and some postcards.
