It's cold and rainy here. We're probably going to stay above freezing all week.
Miss 6 is here drawing her take on Sacagawea's journey; it falls along with our history studies and some badge work for AHG. She learned to work the Keurig so she can make her own hot chocolate. I ❤️ her so much. She is always, always ready to learn. (Just not always the things *I* want her to learn! lol)
Mr "Now I'm FOUR!" has preschool today, so it's just us girls 'til this afternoon.
Da oggi sono ufficialmente un’Anguillarina 🐍 .... così si chiamano gli abitanti di Anguillara 😂😂 ... no no no ritratto 😂😂 mio Cugi ha detto che Anguillarina si chiama chi nasce ad Anguillara , io sono solo una semplice Anguillarese xkè vengo da Roma.... so rimasta malissimo 😂 .... fate le differenze qui aiaiai ☝🏻

Spring is around the corner, and the season for ghost stories about to come to an end. *
”The small hand” by Susan Hill is not the scariest of stories but just enough for me (I scare easily and can’t be bothered with too much gore either). Is there such a thing as ”comfort ghost stories”? Nice mood, great little weekend read, to be enjoyed after a long walk with a hot chocolate.
I am someone who reads according to mood but that mood is very much influenced by the weather. October and November is great for anything gothic and/or Victorian (enjoyed with pots and pots of tea). But those kind of stories work all the way to March (on the gloomy days). December is classics and fantasy mostly. As soon as there is snow on the ground I feel the need to read a dead Russian author or at the very least something that takes place in Russia. Then spring comes and I feel the need for non-fiction; all of the memoirs and essays and think pieces thank you very much. April, May and June are months when I want knowledge and insight. What books do you like reading during the spring months?
Any particular titles or kinds of books?
RE: Smore’s Hot Chocolate
I very thoroughly enjoyed the novelty of this drink HAHA the hot chocolate was dark and not overly sweet! It was a little too much paired with the million cakes we got - but overall I enjoyed. A little pricey at $7, but look at that giant marshmallow 😱 #yychotchocolatefest
