Happy Memorial Day weekend! I am enjoying a nice weekend at home and crossing my fingers for some pool time tomorrow. No formal festivities going on, but I am planning to eat hot dogs for dinner, so that’s basically like a cookout.
I’m super impressed by these watercolor flowers my friend Katie made. I don’t know if I have the skills to do that!
I’ve been suuuper engrossed in a few books lately, and as I walked home from the coffee shop where I’d gotten lost in the pages for 2 hours, I was wondering something similar: How do you hold on to what you read? Even when a book is amazingly impactful I don’t always retain it, and sometimes even my underlines have lost their weightiness when I look back at them later.
On a serious note, this article really resonated with me, and, judging by the responses on Twitter, with some other folks as well.
What I’ve had to say on Twitter:
It's been a very emotional week for me, fiction-wise, what with Love and War, Chicago Fire, and The Vampire Diaries. Sheesh.— Laura Lindeman (@lclindeman) May 17, 2014
How anyone can ever drink more than one margarita is beyond me. #lightweight— Laura Lindeman (@lclindeman) May 21, 2014
It's always good when you leap into action to hand someone a paper towel to mop up their spilled coffee but spill your own in the process.— Laura Lindeman (@lclindeman) May 22, 2014
