Good morning! Today’s post will link up to The Sunday Salon and The Sunday Post for weekly updates.

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.

I only read and reviewed one book this week!  But I loved it, and my six blog posts showed a little bit of my blogging life.  I got my flu shot this week; on Friday, I got my hair styled by Heather…and we had lunch afterwards!

I viewed some old movies:  I found an old favorite, When a Man Loves a Woman, with Meg Ryan and Andy Garcia.  I also continued watching Big Sky, on Hulu.

Now, looking back, I wonder what else I did that I forgot about, as the week slid by so quickly!

For now let’s take a closer look at my week.  Below, my new hair with a glimmer of purple that I haven’t had since before the Pandemic!

    That Andy Garcia & Megan Ryan movie is a dramatic / good one! I remember it from 1994. Pretty intense right? You’ll have to let us know if the Clinton/Penny book is good … it seems good payback for 2016 debacle. Have a great week.

    I love how Meg Ryan’s partner in that movie helps her cope with addiction. My brother has AA issues and I just learned that MN is the top three states who battle with chronic addiction. Fortunately we have tons of rehab centers. Hope your week is good and find more stuff and share. I love going on scavenger hunts with ya.

    State of Terror is definitely a popular book that landed in everyone’s mailboxes this week. Hope you enjoy it!

    When a man loves a woman was such a beautiful woman. I remember it well.

    Have a good and happy reading!

  4. The week flew by for me, too! How lovely that you were able to get your hair done and get lots of blogging done. I also managed to get back into a blogging return and finally finished reading The Count of Monte Cristo! Take care and happy reading. 🙂

  5. One book is quite a change – you must have had a very busy week! Just love seeing that hint of purple back in your hair… just like old times! I’m still disappointed that my hair cut/foils appointment in NY got cancelled last month due to Covid. All the stylists tested positive, but thankfully none were very sick. I’m waiting until the positivity rates decline here before making an appointment. Hope you have another good week.

    1. Thanks, JoAnn, it took forever for me to finally get my appointment with Heather, who is the only one I trust with the purple. I haven’t had it since before the Pandemic!

      My one book was so good, and it was from Karen White, so I was happy to immerse myself in it.

    I’ve been thinking that it is time for a haircut again but haven’t made an appointment yet. I’ve become such a homebody that any trip out is an adventure, and I’m not all that fond of adventures. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. Thanks, Kathy, I have also been curled up at home for most of the past year and even this year. It was strange to go out to the styling salon, but the end result cheered me up.

      Enjoy your week and your books…and your outings.


  7. I love the purple in your hair! My sister put in some “peekaboo” purple, sort of in a middle layer of her dark hair, so you just catch glimpses of it here and there. I’d love to do some blue but my hair is dry and curly anyway, so I think I would fry it by bleaching it to take the blue. Oh well. I’ll enjoy everyone else’s colors!

    Have a great week!

  8. Oh, that movie When a Man Loves A Woman. I remember going to see that at the cinema and it pretty much destroyed me! This was backintheday when there was no such thing as a trigger warning.
