WEEKLY UPDATES: COZY TIMES…

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.

A very slow reading week, with just one book read and reviewed.  Only three blog posts, too.  What did I do with my time this week?  Well, I watched Season 5 of The Crown, and also watched Private Practice again, all six seasons!  I hadn’t seen it in a while, but I still cried at all the appropriate parts.

No outings, but I am longing to see that new movie in the theater: She Said.  It will probably stream soon, too, but I think I might be ready to go to the theater!

It has been YEARS since I went out to see a movie.  Even before the Pandemic.  I used to go regularly, enjoying lunch beforehand.  I miss those times.

So…now let’s take a closer look at my flimsy week.

That was my week.  What did yours look like? I am planning several events this coming week, with a hair styling at my daughter’s new salon, and meals at two different places with friends and family.  I am also hoping that my No. 2 son will stop by on the upcoming weekend.  Last year, a group of us enjoyed lunch out at a favorite spot.  Below, Thanksgiving day at my daughter’s house last year.

  1. I misss movies too, I hardly go to any anymore (and I’ve only been to a couple since the pandemic). Feels weird to go I still worry about Covid. I want to read the Unger book. And I’ve been hearing The crown is good!

  2. I love the family picture!

    Yay for movies in the theater! We’ve been out to see the Marvel movies, but that’s it. I think we just got lazy during the pandemic and, unless there really is a reason we want to see a movie on the big screen, we just wait for it to stream. Sigh…I miss the movie theater!

  3. Your week was ok altogether. Mine ahead involves a BD to morrow (M the 21st) when I will get a CT scan of my lungs. Company bringing a surprise Tuesday. More company Wed and some cooking of 5 cup fruit salad for Thursday, when I will have Thanksgiving with friends. There will be 25 of us. Thankfully, I only have to bring a dish! It looks like a very good week ahead. I hope yours is good also.

  4. I think the last movie I saw in a theater was the first Downton Abbey movie – quite a while ago! Last night I watched the Lindsay Lohan Christmas movie on Netflix. Predictable and had some LOL moments. I hope we both love the new Center book. Enjoy your week, Laurel!

    1. Thanks, Mary, I can’t even remember the last movie I saw at the theater, but it was before 2019, when I moved into that horrible “assisted living” place. Outings were not encouraged there. I’m glad I can go now if I want to, but after Pandemic times, I am leery of crowds still. Sigh.

    1. Thanks, AJ, movie theaters have changed a bit, with reclining seats and being able to select where to sit. Drinks, too, I guess. I haven’t participated in any of these features yet. I’m still a little leery of crowds.

      Enjoy your week.

  5. I just finished The Rewind. All of your books look so good. I’m really interested in The Couple at the Table. I’ll have to look for that one. I haven’t watched Private Practice in years, but I loved it when it was on. I hope you have a great week. Happy Thanksgiving!
