Marcus says this will be pickles. The recipe is for rum-pickled chilis, but I transformed 6 scotch bonnet peppers in to 6 mini Persian cucumbers 🥒 instead. #cookbooks
Hey #lmpbc #round6 #groupJ...some books I was thinking of for our swap. They‘re all under 300 pages, by women authors, two fiction and two nonfiction. I haven‘t read any of them before but they‘re all on my to-read! What do you think?
Complementing my reading of _Yes, Chef_ by getting this cookbook from the library. Turned in my coursework a day early and time to decompress before bed. 💤 💤
We got invited to the local ice cream shop by the owners for a super-secret pre-season-opening ice cream.... 🍦 ☀️ 🌊
I can‘t let go of this book. I‘m rationalizing it to myself as the effect that adoption has on genealogical situations, and therefore it is pertinent to my studies. But it‘s also reinforcing to me that it has always been about policing women‘s bodies, and that if anyone tells my daughters what to do with their respective uteruses, I will fillet them alive.
I devoured Kindred, and then I cleaned the porch this weekend. Yes, this porch is clean. I even sprayed down, soaped up, rinsed, repeated, and then dried this area rug in the sun. I feel like I have so much to write about my experience with the book! #lmpbc #round5 #groupQ
Squeezing in #lmpbc reading when and wherever I can. 53 pages already today. It‘s a release from reading about genealogy, but it‘s also all about genealogy and navigating the past, so I‘m reading it *as* a genealogist... #round5 #groupQ
Here‘s a phlox from my garden. Today I turned in my 1st assignment for my course in genealogical research. 1 week down, 14 to go. I cried twice, threw up once, nearly gave up, but didn‘t. I know a lot of you have done more or worked harder, but I‘m in a real stressed-out panic about this course. I used to be one of the best students in my classes, college made me feel lowly & fuzzy-headed. Still had magna cum laude but felt like an idiot. 👇🏻

A clip from a Time article on the origins of Take Your Daughter to Work Day. Women (and girls) have to actively lift up other women (and girls). It‘s not a competition. If we don‘t help each other, they‘ll tear us apart. http://time.com/4753128/take-your-our-daughters-to-work-day-history/
I have one chapter of the tagged book left. My pinky finger has been in utter agony since last week, and getting to the point I can‘t straighten it for pain, so my husband buddy-taped it to its neighbor. This disturbed Bunny immensely. So she sat her 52 lb fluffy butt in my lap on the kitchen floor. #dogsoflitsy #mymomma #notyourmomma
Now that I have your attention .... (a Zebra 🦓 Dome from Animal Kingdom Lodge & a peach 🍑 dump cake recipe I tried my hand at) I just realized that with the mailing off of the tagged back, I‘m halfway through this round of #lmpbc! It‘s my first experience and I‘m really enjoying it so far. What would my group companions say to continuing with the group another round? I‘m taking a class over the summer that will probably cut in to my leisure 👇🏻
Home from vacation. Sitting on the porch with #dogsoflitsy Bunny 🐰 & catching up on Les Mis serials. She‘s either blissed out or giving me an epic guilt trip. She cried the first two nights we were gone. But now she‘s acting indifferent to us! This is the first time in her living memory probably that she didn‘t have us around. Maybe she thinks we had abandoned her 😭 #rachelreadslesmis
Waiting in line for airport coffee...so #bookishquestions it is.
1. Cozy mystery, historical nonfiction
2. I am enjoying 20th c nonfiction & memoirs more lately.
3. Erotica, romance, thriller/horror.
4. As @Schlinkles said, I want to see more well done original content. Writing for screen is an art.
5. None. I‘m picky.
6. I have bailed on a lot of mystery & history...the field is so wide its bound to happen.
7. See tags!
#dogsoflitsy Bunny is on vacation at the dog lady‘s house while the fam is in Florida....she was crying so badly the first two nights that by Monday Stephanie was texting me asking for tricks to help her at night. I didn‘t hear again until today and these are the faces I get 😂 #happybunny #happyeaster
The whole fam, 2 adults and 2 children under 6, are leaving for Disney tomorrow. Today is brought to you by anxiety and coffee. What does the perfect cup look like? Tag 🏷 Littens who love ☕️! #perfectcuppa
D4 maybe? 🧐
1. I do. Unfort, my dreams are always disturbing. I had to learn lucid dreaming in high school just to cope.
2. A tame female wolpertinger (See inset) named Gad. Small, yet fierce. I assume the does would not have such large antlers.
3. Flavia Albia from Lindsey Davis
4. The Kingdoms from the tagged book. I would love to live in Riva.
5. I‘m taking my girls to Disney! The imagination is going to be out of control!
