First, Middle, and Last Impressions – May 18, 2022

I love taking a look at a book cover and description and then coming up with my own idea of what the book will be about. Sometimes I'm right, sometimes I'm so wrong it's almost funny. So I've decided to launch myself off of WWW Wednesday, a bookish meme run by Sam@Taking on a World … Continue reading First, Middle, and Last Impressions – May 18, 2022

Upcoming at The Lily Cafe #10

And it's summer here in Southern California! Wait, I take that back. We're back to spring. After temperatures got seriously close to 100 degrees late last week, it's nice to finally plunge 20+ degrees.

Diversity and Inclusivity Challenge: February 2022

diversity inclusivity challenge feb 2022

This was supposed to post last night, but I forgot February only has 28 days. My son accidentally put the date 2-29-28 on one of his school assignments yesterday, so we looked up the calendar and saw 2028 does indeed have February 29th! Thanks to that, I forgot 2022 does not have a February 29. … Continue reading Diversity and Inclusivity Challenge: February 2022
