**Mailbox Monday is hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.
And let’s join Kathryn, our leader in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, at Book Date.
We are really counting down the days until Christmas now! I have plans for next week for a mani and a freshened hairstyle. My daughter does my hair, but she is extremely busy and I had to scramble for an appointment. I wanted a new look, not just for holiday revelry, but for the First Book of the Year photo. Yes, Sheila is leading us again in our annual bookish celebration. I have been participating since 2014, when it began. I have a folder of my photos and a page here featuring the chosen books.
Now…on to my reading, blogging, etc. I wrote seven blog posts (not bad), but I only read TWO books…and I finished the second one last night at midnight. Wow! I seriously need to get my mojo back. Usually I read three books, and last week, I got through four books. I guess I decided to “rest on my laurels” this week. (Pun intended).
However, there was shopping, etc., going on this week. I had an afternoon with my granddaughter Fiona to select new eyeglasses, which she had not yet picked up by the time that we tried a new restaurant in my neighborhood called Lazy Dog. The patio allows doggie guests. We ate inside, since we had no dog companions with us. Here is Fiona enjoying her meal, and my pomegranate martini is in the forefront. Later I’ll show my food.
Of course I had planned to enjoy some Amazon Prime and Netflix this week, but I couldn’t settle on any one show. I did watch Dumplin’, and added the new season of Wanted to my queue. But…that was it for this week.
Let’s grab some coffee (and/or a mimosa), and look at the details of my week.
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOGS:
INCOMING BOOKS: (Titles/Covers Linked to Amazon):
Empty physical mailbox…but I got one NetGalley ARC and a Kindle Prime Freebie!
Keeping Lucy (e-book), by T. Greenwood – (NG – 8/6/19)
True Places (e-book), by Sonja Yoerg
Since this past week was not a stellar reading journey, I need to start with my one other January e-ARC: The Perfect Liar, by Thomas Christopher Greene (Release Date – 1/15).
And then I’ve been wanting to read a book from an author I love; it has been on my shelf for a while:
Gone So Long (e-book), by Andre Dubus III
Next I’ll follow my moods…
That was my week; what did yours look like? As promised, here is more food to share from my meal at Lazy Dog with Fiona…the fish and chips order was supposed to be half-size…so can you imagine what the full size looked like? Yikes!
