WEEKLY UPDATES: A WEEK OF ANTICIPATION…

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.

This week has been one of anticipation.  My eldest son returned to the states from Prague on Wednesday, and drove up last night from LA with my No. 2 son.  They’ll spend the weekend here, then head up to Sacramento to see their father for a few days.  They’ll come back and forth for the rest of the month until Craig flies back home on the 28th. 

I only read and reviewed one book, but it was a good one.  I had hoped to finish my current read, but I was too distracted by plans and even viewing.  I wrote three blog posts; I finished watching Parenthood and saw a few shows, plus the movie Elvis.  I enjoyed the first episode of The Good Fight’s Sixth (and final) season.

Now let’s take a closer look at the week.

That was my week.  Not much reading, but some enjoyment of viewing.  And lots of anticipation for the family get-togethers this  weekend and in the weeks ahead.  Here is a photo of the first family tradition at the CSUF Sculpture in November 1979:

    I love that photo. ❤ It will be so nice to spend time with your sons. I hope they have safe travels to Sacramento and back. I need to get back to reading Karen White's books. I love her writing style. I hope you have a great week, Laurel-Rain!

  2. I need to get back into The Good Fight. I loved that show, but I had to put it aside in the run-up to the 2020 election as it was just too much. I think I can probably get back into it now…

    Have a great week!

    1. Thanks, Deb, I am loving the family time, which included a revisit to a sculpture at the local university, which has been a regular tradition since 1979! I like that it is an important part of our family life.

      Enjoy your week! I loved Daisy Darker.
