What to do while suffering from a book hangover . . .

 Stay busy!


I stayed up way later than usual last night (this morning) so I could finish the ARC a friend sent me.


The new Amor Towles.


I love Amor Towles' writing.


A Gentleman in Moscow is one of my all-time favorite books ever.  


I loved Rules of Civility.


I've been impatiently awaiting The Lincoln Highway.





it was worth the wait.


It's not going to be a book for everyone.  I can already imagine some of the comments and where they'll be coming from - and why.


'Sokay, not everyone likes livermush or scrapple either.


So today, after sleeping late, knowing the search for the next book needs to be put off for a little while as I recover from this latest book hangover I decided to start cleaning out some kitchen cupboards.


Nobody needs so many mugs.


But.


We all seem to have a gracious plenty, don't we?


Gifted mugs.


Mugs we picked up on vacation.


And the travel mugs!!


Time for them to go.


Some will go to our booth at Antiques on Howard  Some into the trash.  Some set out at the corner of the neighborhood container site where people drop off  "take what you want" items.



(Noooo, not everything on this table is leaving . . .)



while I was washing the dust off these long-unused mugs, I spent some time doing what I often do.


 Dreaming of Paris.  


Wishing there might be a chance in the near future that Don Barley and I might be sitting in green chairs in a Paris garden having coffee and a croissant.

But selfish ignorant anti-vaxxers are doing their best to make sure that doesn't happen while endangering the rest of us; including the children. 

 Being the people responsible for so many deaths, wow, what a way to make a point.  

A point of stupidity. 


For shame.

I'm so glad you liked The Lincoln Highway.

Those chairs look very welcoming.
