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.
A pretty good week, with three books read and reviewed and six blog posts written. I stayed home all week, but I enjoyed it. Curled up reading or binging shows on my laptop. Amazon packages came to my door, which felt like having visitors. Replenishing supplies and adding a new vacuum cleaner to my cleaning shelves.
There was a lot of smoke in the air, so I only walked to the mailbox twice this week. I had a sore throat from the bad air, but today is better. My granddaughter was planning to stop by yesterday to help put the vacuum cleaner together…yes, I am challenged when it comes to assembling things. Or the instructions and pictorial guides are lacking. Anyway, she had to work two shifts, so I’m still sitting here, trying to figure it out. Usually Amazon has videos that help us put things together. Apparently they think the task of assembling the vacuum is so easy they don’t need to do that. Even their wine bottle openers have better videos! LOL
I found a Coca Cola dining room set online, but it will take four weeks to arrive. Sigh.
This morning I did a load of laundry, and it was so blissful to be able to do that without lugging anything upstairs to the self-service laundry room, like in my previous place. They were actually supposed to do the laundry, but they washed in hot water and threw them in dryers afterwards…ruining a lot of my clothes in the beginning. So I feel blessed to have my own washer and dryer now.
There were a lot of things they were supposed to do there, like cleaning and providing edible food. But I guess I will just stop whining…and be grateful that I’m not there anymore.
Now let’s take a closer look at my week.

That was my week. What did yours look like? Right now, I’m watching old movies on Netflix, like The Net, with Sandra Bullock. I am amazed at the antiquated computers in that film! I also enjoyed a newer film, Strange Weather, and watched more episodes of Nine Perfect Strangers on Hulu.
And here’s a glimpse of the Coca Cola dining set coming my way. Yes, smaller than the one I used to have, but my apartment is smaller, too.
