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.


Another great week moving toward a balance in my routines.  I read and reviewed two books, wrote six blog posts, and happily started viewing Season Five of The Crown.  I also enjoyed adding another streaming service to my TV to allow for more comfortable viewing on my couch.

We had some rain this week, which is needed…but I had to time my outdoor chores, like taking out the trash, to avoid sloshing through puddles.

I stayed home all week, with no appointments or outings, but I actually enjoyed it.  Maybe I will do more next week.  Now let’s take a closer look at the week.

Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six, by Lisa Unger (Currently Reading)

She’s Gone, by David Bell


That was my week.  What did yours look like?  With the time changing of the past week, I was reminded of my wall of clocks that once made that task a bit overwhelming.  So glad I don’t have them now!




  1. We had rain this week too. We even got some snow. Fortunately, the snow melted pretty quickly. I’ve only watched the first two seasons of THE CROWN. I lost interest when I found out Claire Foy wasn’t the queen anymore. I think I’m going to watch the new seasons, though, since I’ve heard it’s so good. I hope you have a good week!

  2. The Lisa Unger sounds good. I hope you have more chances for your outdoor chores this week. We are firmly in the 20s and 30s temps now – winter coats, etc are being used. I keep saying I need to start The Crown but haven’t had time or opportunity as yet. Have a good week, Laurel.

  3. I need to catch up with the new season of The Crown too. I’ve loved the show so far.
    I have my eye on Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six too. Hopefully I can get it from the library soon!
    Have a great week and happy reading!

    We had rain this week and right now it is snowing. It’s what we call a nuisance snow – just enough to make the roads slippery. Since this is only our second snow of the season, people need to dust off their winter driving skills. I’ve heard tell of a number of fender benders already today. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. Thanks, Kathy, I have never lived in a place with snowfall, although we are a couple of hours away from the mountains and the ski resorts. I like being able to visit the snow without all the daily mess.

      Enjoy your week and your books.


    1. Thanks, Erin, I do love being surrounded by books, and I do miss my condo with all the bookish things. But…I have some shelves and some trinkets, so I’m making do and enjoying the photos of the past.

      Can’t wait to really dive into the Lisa Unger book. Enjoy your week.


  5. The Lisa Unger and David Bell look like ones that would make my nerves jangle! I’m already reading a book that makes me tense now, anyway (horror, not psychological suspense). A quiet week at home sounds delightful!

  6. Yeah the time change usually throws me off for weeks! It’s hard to adjust. Are you liking Season 5 of The Crown? Is it good? We don’t have Netflix right now but I would like to see the new season. The actors in it seem top notch. Enjoy your week.
