**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.
My week has brought good books to my shelves and great reading material, some from the backlog, allowing me to finish reading and reviewing three books. Six blog posts were a reminder that reading and blogging go hand and hand. Or hand in glove, a nod to one of my titles from this week. One downside of the reading and blogging, which included a lot of blog visits, is that my eyes are so tired that I am struggling to type this! That doesn’t happen often.
Some of the eye fatigue also comes from all the viewing I’ve done: movies, shows, etc., all online, which is another kind of eye strain.
When I searched my tiny fridge yesterday, I felt a momentary panic. Almost empty! And yes, I get food brought from the residential kitchen, but nothing has improved from those quarters. Not only is the food often “slop,” (sorry about that!), but they tend to bring things I didn’t request, while ignoring those that I specifically asked for. I photograph my menu requests as a reminder of their failings. Can I say that I’m not popular? LOL. And they ran out of red wine again!
So…complaints aside, I added a nice little grocery app to my phone and ordered food from Save Mart…and it arrived within three hours, and I got exactly what I requested.
I still get a lot from Amazon, too, and the orders are coming more quickly. Yay!
So I’ll stop complaining for a bit, while we grab some more coffee and study the details of my week.
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOGS:
Three books came in my mailbox! And I downloaded two e-books.
The Turning of the Key, by Ruth Ware
A Heart in a Body in the World, by Deb Caletti
Clock Dance, by Anne Tyler (for reread)

The Closer You Get, by Mary Torjussen
CURRENTLY READING: The Sweeney Sisters, by Lian Dolan
That was my week. Exhausting, but with good books…and a delicious glass of red wine from the bottle my daughter sent over to compensate for the kitchen failure to send any. LOL.
