So yesterday night I finished Stoner, by John Williams, and wanted to share my thoughts on it. 🤓☺️
🐱
The story is essentially about William Stoner's life, since his early farm days, going through his academic teaching years and ending with his death (don't believe I'm spoiling here because the book's official sinopses says it all). •
🐱
This wasn't one of those books that pulls on my feelings and shakes me off my balance, but still managed to keep me interested throughout all of the reading and connected me with the main character. If I had to describe the story in one word, it would be silence. The whole book goes by in a comforting quietness and Stoner's life goes by without much commotion. •
🐱
It's nice, for a change, to read about a person whose life is as normal as everyone else's - filled with passions and disappointments, healthy and difficult relationships, good and bad luck - and have it relate to the average human. •
🐱
Williams' writing is extremelly easy to read and is, in my opinion, one of the book's strengths. I would definitely recommend Stoner because it's a pleasurable reading, although I wouldn't expect a heart gripping experience. Maybe I was lucky with the timing because I read it right after A Little Life, which was emotionally intense for me. •
🐱
Have you read this book? What did you think of it? 👓📚💜💜

Oggi per me è un #lovelyfriday 💕💕... ogni volta che finisco una bambola c’è un’energia speciale che mi fa sentire grata🙏🏻. Lei non andrà sullo shop perché ha già due manine che stanno aspettando di giocare con lei.
Today for me is a #lovelyfriday 💕💕 ... every time I finish a doll there is a special energy that makes me feel grateful. She will not go to the shop because she was born on commission. She already has two hands waiting for you to play with her.

Я тут решила присоединиться к флэшмобу #мои13тараканов только чур не смеяться 😈😂:
🍩Не могу пойти спать, пока не наведу порядок, ну хотя бы не распихаю все по шкафам;
🍩Терпеть не могу выпавшие волосы, даже свои собственные;
🍩Люблю сначала прочитать книжку, а потом посмотреть фильм, желательно с кем-нибудь, чтобы все время комментировать "а вот в книжке не таааак было";
🍩Вообще не считаю себя суеверной, но если возвращаюсь за чем-то домой - обязательно посмотрюсь в зеркало, и мужа тоже заставлю;
🍩Завожу 5-6 будильников и все равно умудряюсь проспать;
🍩Бананы, и все фрукты, самые вкусные - с наклейкой;
🍩Когда муж в командировке не могу уснуть до 2-3 часов ночи;
🍩Вся одежда должна быть поглажена, даже детская, даже носочки;
🍩Всегда составляю список продуктов, но в магазине никогда его не достаю (я же все поооомню!), а потом дома не хватает морковки в супчик как раз..;
🍩Вт и сб - дни априори "неудачные", а если это пн или чт - все точно будет хорошо;
🍩Панически боюсь опускать голову под воду, поэтому плаваю как лягуха;
🍩Не разрешаю детям мультики больше 30 минут, а вот только попробуйте у меня телефон отобрать;
🍩Фильм надо досмотреть до конца, книжку тоже дочитать, и вообще любое дело доделать, даже если не нравится, но надо же закончить!
Вообще список можно продолжать до бесконечности 😂
Делитесь вашими бзиками??😄

Incense to purifie body and soul - J'ai toujours pensé que le bouddhisme et le witchcraft moderne avaient énormément de similitudes et ma pratique est d'ailleurs un mélange de tout ça, et je le vérifie tous les jours depuis que je suis ici. L'encens est un bon exemple car il est intimement lié à la spiritualité. Il fait le lien entre la terre et le ciel et sa fumée élève les prières et intentions vers le ciel 💫 #spirituallife #templestay

I love you so matcha 🍵
.
After running errands since morning fri-yay-nally I got a time for myself 🙌🏻!! Actually I want nothing more than just to sip a cup of warm almond milk @137degreesclub matcha latte and read a good book 📖 to wind down a bit 💁🏼💖 but since today is #blackfriday 🖤I will be more honest to you guys, I’m now sitting right in front of my MacBook with a cup of my most favourite matcha in one hand and searching for Black Friday deal on another hand 💸🛍️
.
How’s everyone doing today ? Hope you all have a happy Black Friday 💖🦄
