    ‘The novels which I approve are such as display human nature with grandeur’ - Jane Austen, Sanditon
📚
Is anyone else watching the new Sanditon miniseries?! I’m so intrigued to see where it’s going! 😱 Austen started writing Sanditon only months before she died, but she only managed to get about forty pages written (barely enough time for the hero and heroine to even *meet*! 😂) which leaves the rest totally open to interpretation! The miniseries got through the canon writing in half an episode, so there are seven episodes of essentially original period drama, and I am HERE for it 😂😍
.
QOTD: if your favourite book were left incomplete after the first few chapters, which author (other than the actual one, obviously!) would you want to finish it?

    I try to convince myself I’m a bit of a tough cookie but honestly that’s absolutely not true and it shows 😂. My favourite kind of reads are almost always cute girl-meets-boy style ones (especially if they make me cry) and here are some faves I’ve read this year 🤓📚

    Instilling a love of reading has been one of my greatest joys as a Mama. Every night, beginning as wee babes we read stories, snuggled up together in bed. I read to the babies with board books, we read picture books as they got older, chapter books when there was interest and a greater comprehension, and as tweens/teens we still have read alouds with more complex literature- Moby Dick, for example. •

Another guaranteed story time was when I had a little nursing babe; plopped on the couch with water and a stack of books, I could nurture and connect with the older ones while still attending to the babe. Many of my warm fuzzy memories are of these reading sessions. •

And so it felt natural for us to not introduce a lot of screen activities. We do not have any video games, we do not do a lot of TV under age 12.  My older girls did not have a phone until they were 13 and it was a shared flip phone for babysitting purposes. For their 14th birthday they each got a smart phone, but do not have social media. •

So far, this plan has had the desired effect of them being able to self - regulate their technology well. They have secured their love and habit of reading, of playing the piano, as well as the joy of spending time with family, and so the pull of the phone is not all-consuming. •

Just like you, I am feeling my way through this life with kids and technology. I am not saying my way should be your way. But I share what my experience has been so far as an option, as food for thought. And also because my choices are not the norm and I would like to normalize that there are families that survive and, even thrive, in going against the tide of technology. •

Would love to hear any thoughts, comments, or questions! 👍👍

    Hellooooo! How’s everyone’s summer been? I feel like after my surgery it just flew by and now the nights are getting cooler! I spent some time floating in the pool reading earlier and now as the sun goes down I’m hunkered down on the patio with a cup of coffee flying through “ The Cruel Prince”, I am still doing my best get through back books and books I already own! I am enjoying “The Cruel Prince” I think I picked it up at exactly the right time, when I was ready to dive head first into a fantasy! What’s everyone reading right now!?

    Evening folks!
.
I’m still feeling the jet lag but am hoping by going to sleep earlier tonight I may (fingers crossed) Male it through a whole night! Killer!
.
My day has been very uneventful. Apart from sitting in the garden (how glorious has the BH weather been?) and reading I went for a walk today and we had a BBQ early evening. That’s literally it.
.
Have you done anything fun today/this weekend?
.
I recently finished reading THUG and really enjoyed it. I think it hits home with some very powerful feelings and scenarios surrounding racism and the projection of the stereotypes which may be cast in terms of this
.
I didn’t make it to the film on the plane as I thought it was too soon but i do plan on watching it. If anyone has seen it would you recommend?
.
QOTD: What’s your favourite summer snack/beverage?
.
AOTD: Pina colada has to be the drink as it just sums up summer in a cup for me! In terms of food I’m not sure I have anything super summer specific but I definitely enjoy dining al fresco!

    Happy Sunday friends! @stephdoesbookclub tagged me to do the #ombrestackchallenge the other day and I finally gathered myself to do it! Idk if I did it right but I gave it the old college try! I have read 2 of these books. 😬
⠀
Not tagging anyone because I feel like lately I’ve been stepping over the line by tagging people that don’t want to be tagged. I’m sorry if I did it to you! 😘 But if you see this and haven’t done the challenge yet please consider this me tagging you! Good luck tomorrow dear friends.

    Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Day! 🌴 One of my favorite days of the year because it involves these amazingly comfortable overalls, tons of giggles, and instilling a love for letters and reading with my kids!

It also means funny videos for you in my stories of my students putting the letters on me as I read and completely losing it when I fall to the ground. 🤣 Chicka Chicka BOOM BOOM!

I have heard from so many of you that you are dressing up this year or want to so I will link the overalls in my stories and show you how I pepped up my headband after it sat in storage for a year.

Are you trying this or would you? Let me know!
