Do you remember the Shire, Mr. Frodo? It’ll be spring soon. And the orchards will be in blossom. And the birds will be nesting in the hazel thicket. And they’ll be sowing the summer barley in the lower fields… and eating the first of the strawberries with cream. Do you remember the taste of strawberries?

Buck: And that’s how it’s done! What’d I tell you? Your old man’s pretty good, huh?

Jefferson: If you say so… but I’m pretty sure that was just an accident.

Buck: You are wearin’ me out, bug. Didn’t I tell you to hush?

Jefferson: [giggling] I don’t know, I wasn’t really listening.

Buck: Hmph. Well. I do want you to listen to me for a sec because I wanna talk to you about somethin’ important, okay? Man to man.

Jefferson: Um, okay. What is it, Dad?

“My fortune is better.”

“What? Mine is!”

‘I guess we’ll try again next year? Or not.’ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Sakura has long realized that being competitive with each other is just another one of his dads’ weird expressions of love. Personally, he’d rather have them just stay their silly selves. [Click to enlarge! | Static v.]

My dad’s engineering notes as requested by an anon (just click on the photo to enlarge). There are still a couple of pages left that I wasn’t able to scan, but if you want to see it, just send me a message. By the way, my dad is elated because his notes made it to Tumblr. I’m pretty sure he already bragged about it to his colleagues.

The November Bookish Challenge
(brought to you by @queennovella​ + @seducedbybooks​)

Hey, guys. We apologise for the lack of prompts (and explanation) for October’s Bookish Challenge, but we were both busy and crap things happened that I won’t go into and then October started and yadda yadda yadda. But we’re back with another month’s worth of prompts for you to tackle, so hooray? I mean, hOORAY (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

As always, the idea behind the challenge is to take the prompts provided and interpret them in whatever way you like. Whether that’s through photography, drawing, writing, speaking, sculpting, filming—the list goes on. It’s all up to you. Don’t worry if you miss a few days or weeks or you only do one prompt. The challenge is relaxed. As long as you’re having fun and interacting with the rest of the community then we’re happy.

The prompt “Make Your Own Prompt” is for you to do whatever you like with. Redo a prompt from a previous month or make your own. If we like some of them we’ll use them for next month’s challenge and mention you in the main post. The new “Word Association” prompts are just as simple. Tell us a book or bookish thing that pops to mind when you see the word. That’s it!

Please tag all of your posts with #the bookish challenge so that we can see them all. The tag is the same across all social media platforms so feel free to use Instagram, Twitter, YouTube etc. Also please feel free to reblog and comment on other people’s prompts. Spread the love, bookish challengers!

I’ll finish this off by saying thank you so much for the continued support, the messages and the answered prompts. We love doing this, and we love that you guys love doing this. If anyone has any questions please feel free to message either myself or @seducedbybooks and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. We hope the month of November is a good one, guys! ❤

(Shout out to @bibliophilicwitch and @treesofreverie for the prompt ideas~*~)
