It's Monday again! Time to . . .
(On Monday mornings, I share a few things I found over the weekend.)
"If the world seems cold to you, kindle fires to warm it."
--- Lucy Larcom
Did you happen to catch this over the weekend? Yes! It's one thing to read an awesome blog post by one of your best pals. But . . . it's EVEN BETTER to read it again when it's picked up by one of the "big blogs!" If you haven't already read Carole's most excellent essay, be sure to click in and read it now. (And if you have already read it? Well. Click in and read it again. Because it's a good one!) Congratulations, Carole! Thanks for speaking up - and speaking out!
I tend to think that emojis are generally self-explanatory. But maybe - before you hit "send" - you have a fleeting worry about that emoji you're using. Will your recipient understand the meaning you're trying to convey?
Well. Just in case you want to be certain, there is an encyclopeida of emojis for you to consult! An . . . "emojipedia"! You can even track the "trending" emojis. Or find the newest emojis. (Hoo-boy. Who knew?)
Hold on to your hats, everyone. Mercury is in retrograde again! Curious about what else is happening in the night skies this month? Here's a quick run down for the month of February. (I'm happy to be able to see the stars in my night sky again . . . for the first time in months! Thank you clear skies.)
That's it for this Monday morning, y'all! I hope your week is off to a great start.
And don't forget to check in here tomorrow for the third and final week of our Read With Us discussion of Fever. (If you've been waiting to talk about Alfred . . . well. Tomorrow is your chance!) See you then.
