Mug Monday Without A Mug

Greetings, my lovely bookish Padawans. Welcome back to yet another glorious Mug Monday.

As you might have guessed from the title of this post, there won´t be a mug feature today. Why? Because I seriously can´t be bothered.

The reason for this is – The excruciating high temperatures and unwanted sweating.

 

 

I kid you not- I´ve reduced my movements to a minimum and I still have sweat on my eyelids. Is this normal? For countries without air conditioning – sure. With temps reaching close to 35 degrees I feel like I´m being prepared for my future trip to Hell.

A little useless fun fact about myself: I don´t like to sweat. You´re welcome.

As for bookish news: There aren´t any. No reading updates or anything else I can offer you. Just an update on my current water intake. 3 liters a day, including the occasional glass of ginger ale or coke. I´ll still humor you, though, with a glass I prefer to use when not drinking hot chocolate.

Here´s another fun fact: I´m not only an avid coke drinker I also collect coca – cola drinking glasses. Yup, I´m one of those people. My obsession started when I was a teenager and it has stuck with me ever since. From pink to purple to red and gold… I have ´em all. And today I´m using the turquoise glass.

If you´re curious to know what´s hanging on the wall in the background… I can explain.

It´s a mega-sized post – it / sticky label for my youngest daughter, Lillian. Since she´s having difficulties with maths ( and the teachers can´t seem to find time or energy in their busy schedules to help my kid ) I´ve taken matters in my own hands. What you see is a small portion of what´s actually hanging on almost every wall of my house. From metric units to small multiplication, double-digit addition, and subtraction and estimations- things she has to know at age 8, it´s hanging on my walls. So, what we´re doing at home is, aside from the regular homework ( which she has difficulty understanding without the basic knowledge ) we´re teaching her the basics starting from the very bottom.  She´s the type of person who learns visually best, meaning: She has to see to understand or else she´ll have a hard time. It´s not a disability. It´s just a struggle.

For example: Telling her 1 meter is 100 cm won´t stick. Showing her what 1 meter is and how that can be converted into 100 cm by giving her examples / finding 1-meter objects will give her a sense of the measurement.

A bug can be a cm. A car is measured in meters. Distance in km. The table is likely 1 meter high. The door frame most likely 2 meters tall, etc. If you line up 100 bugs you have a meter. So, yeah… That´s that. Now you´ve got a small take on what life is like for a book blogger offline. Add all the school meetings, school fests ( and the elementary school my kid goes to loves to throw parties for everything ) you can say we´re a busy bunch. Why am I doing this when there are teachers who are capable of teaching my kid? Well, with today´s teaching speed it´s hard for some children to keep up. Mine can´t keep up.

Okay, I´m going to stop right here before I bore you any further.

I guess that´s it for today. It´s time to step away from the heater I call laptop and take another refreshing shower.

Until next week ❤

Enjoy your Monday. Feel hugged. Share the book love!

    1. I’ve heard you haven’t been hit by the heatwave yet. Be prepared. It’s awful. Dealing with 37 degrees in the shade right now. I’m literally melting away. Might want to pack those cardigans and scarves away.
