**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.
This week I was determined to dust off some older books from my Kindle, and I did it! Of the four, yes FOUR, books I read and reviewed, three of them were from my backlog. And they were all so good!
Here in the residence, we are now eating in the dining room on alternate days, at scheduled times and applying social distancing. I’m liking the change. I feel a sense of normalcy returning, very slowly, and I am trying to feel hope again.
My movies and shows online continue, with some of them oldies. The comfort viewing has helped me feel peaceful.
My ongoing sprucing up the space has led to more purchases of books and items to make me feel at home. I have added new storage bins and changed the look of my bookshelves, with books and photos arranged in a way that I had them in my previous home.
I am writing this post in the late afternoon, so instead of suggesting we grab some caffeine, let’s reach for a preferred beverage: perhaps even wine?

That was my week. What did yours look like? Even though we are still on lockdown, I am feeling upbeat. Getting out to the dining room every other day is surprisingly delightful. And if the food is not good, I can ask them to prepare something else! I have no delicious foods to spotlight, but I am thinking back on the last time I got together with my family!
