WEEKLY UPDATES: BACK TO MY ROUTINES…

 

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.

It was another week that moved beyond my family visits and back into my routines.  I only read and reviewed one book, however, and wrote four blog posts.  I enjoyed viewing a sequel to The Firm, which kept me glued to the screen for several nights.

An outing took me back to a favorite restaurant where I enjoyed chatting and eating with a friend over quiche and a mimosa.  We had planned to go to Barnes & Noble, but when we arrived, they were still closed.  Our hunger drew us to the restaurant across the street.

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

That was my week.  I am finally getting back into my normal groove, although my reading is not very productive.  I hope to do better next week.  I am still enjoying adding to my collections of trinkets, like the Queen Elizabeth mug on my Baker’s Rack below.

  1. Looks like you had a nice week. I hope you enjoy your incoming book and getting back to your normal schedule. We’ve had freezing temps the past week and the shift to being indoors more has begun – more reason to read and wear cozy clothes.

  2. It takes ages to get back into the flow I find. It’s annoying when places are closed – I’m one of those people where places always used to be closed on Sundays, but then that changed and now I expect places to be open all the time…

    I’m glad you had a nice time in the restaurant though instead.

    Have a good week.

  3. Annoying about Barnes and Noble – but glad you were able to retrieve the situation… And I know what you mean about getting back to a routine – it can be difficult to pick up the groove after family visits or a holiday. I hope the coming week is a good one, Laurel:).

  4. Our local Barnes and Noble has been closed. I order online from them instead of Amazon and am a B&N member instead of an Amazon Prime member, but I don’t think I buy enough books to keep them going! 😦
    I’ve been in a funk, with a promotion at work eating into my free time. Went to lunch with a friend at work, and that was nice! Hoping to get on a more even keel soon. At least I finally finished one book I seemed to have been reading for weeks on end, too!
