**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.
Another week slid by when I wasn’t looking. My head has been buried in my books…and I read and reviewed three. I was also alert to the knocking on my door with a staff person leaving still another Amazon package. Am I obsessed? Or do I just love the idea of my current shopping routine? A little of both. I received books, some ordinary items that I used to buy in the supermarket or drug store, and I’ve also ordered clothes. Yes, shirts or tops, usually.
My evenings have kept me glued to the TV, binge-watching the Mary Tyler Moore show on Amazon Prime, lost in the 70s. While I vividly recall the characters and many of the situations, the episodes feel almost new. As if I haven’t seen them before. That’s because I hadn’t watched them over and over like I’ve done with other shows. I loved Mary and Rhoda’s apartments in that quaint old house, though, and the TV station and newsroom.
So…let’s look closer at my week, while enjoying another cup of coffee:
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOGS:
Two books came in the mailbox (Amazon deliveries!), and I downloaded three e-books:
Home Sweet Home: A Journey Through Mary’s Dream Home, by Mary Engelbreit
Nanaville: Adventures in Grandparenting, by Anna Quindlen
The Testaments: The Sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood
The Nanny, by Gilly Macmillan
The Murder List, by Hank Phillippi Ryan
I’m enjoying The Favorite Daughter, by Patti Callahan Henry
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Bookshop at Water’s End, here is a lush, heart-wrenching novel about the power of memory, the meaning of family, and learning to forgive.
That was my week. What did yours look like? Here is a glimpse of my New Normal, with healthy breakfast choices. I loved the egg white veggie casserole in the left corner.
