WEEKLY UPDATES: A CHAOTIC WEEK…

Good morning! Today’s post will link up to The Sunday Salon, The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves, 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 had hoped to write this post much earlier in the day, but I was still reading my third book and couldn’t stop. I finished it finally about an hour ago, wrote the review, and then got distracted by texts from my granddaughter, which I couldn’t ignore.  Family contacts are important, aren’t they?

So…the reading culminated nicely.  The book I was still poring over earlier was the one I bought in 2017 and featured on my “Books from the Backlog” event on Thursday.  Finishing it felt like a real accomplishment.

My eyes are blurring over, from reading and being online…so I hope I don’t make any typos.  LOL.

This week brought some interesting movies and the usual shows, plus I just started watching Sweet Magnolias on Netflix.  I’m enjoying it so far.

Let’s hasten along to check out the details of my week.  You can grab some coffee, if you like…but I am all caffeinated from the day.

WEEKLY UPDATES: READING, BLOGGING, & KVETCHING…

Good morning! Today’s post will link up to The Sunday Salon, The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves, 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.

 

My week has brought good books to my shelves and great reading material, some from the backlog, allowing me to finish reading and reviewing three books.  Six blog posts were a reminder that reading and blogging go hand and hand.  Or hand in glove, a nod to one of my titles from this week.  One downside of the reading and blogging, which included a lot of blog visits, is that my eyes are so tired that I am struggling to type this!  That doesn’t happen often.

Some of the eye fatigue also comes from all the viewing I’ve done:  movies, shows, etc., all online, which is another kind of eye strain.

When I searched my tiny fridge yesterday, I felt a momentary panic.  Almost empty!  And yes, I get food brought from the residential kitchen, but nothing has improved from those quarters.  Not only is the food often “slop,” (sorry about that!), but they tend to bring things I didn’t request, while ignoring those that I specifically asked for.  I photograph my menu requests as a reminder of their failings.  Can I say that I’m not popular?  LOL.  And they ran out of red wine again!

So…complaints aside, I added a nice little grocery app to my phone and ordered food from Save Mart…and it arrived within three hours, and I got exactly what I requested.

I still get a lot from Amazon, too, and the orders are coming more quickly.  Yay!

So I’ll stop complaining for a bit, while we grab some more coffee and study the details of my week.

WEEKLY UPDATES: MORE OF THE SAME…

Good morning! Today’s post will link up to The Sunday Salon, The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves, 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 past week has been exhausting, and I’m not sure why.  It has been warmer outside, and I’ve had to use the air conditioning, which is not the best unit I’ve ever had…LOL.  It is also loud!  Despite these issues, I managed to finish reading and reviewing two books, one of which was an ARC that wasn’t supposed to be released until May 19, but suddenly appeared on the Amazon page on 5/5.  Luckily it was a good book that kept me engaged throughout, as did my second book.  I also spent time reading a hardcover book that is slow going, so I’m picking it up and spending bits of time on it.  I’m about halfway finished. 

I’ve spent more time on movies and shows online.  New episodes of The Good Fight, continuing episodes of Mrs. America, and I started Season II of Dead to Me on Netflix.  Today I plan to begin I Know This Much Is True on Prime, based on Wally Lamb’s book.

Last night I went to bed at 7:00 p.m.!  Just to lie there and watch TV for a while, and I finally slept periodically, turning off the TV at 11:30.  Up at 4:30 today!

So…now what?  I think I’ll continue reading the hardcover book today, as I’m eager to finally finish it…and I have some e-books that are calling out to me, both fiction and nonfiction.  I have discovered that my e-books go faster and more smoothly…and I think I like holding the Kindle more than a physical book.  That was surprising to me, but I’ve been realizing this for a while.

Let’s grab some coffee.  I’m sitting right here at my computer, in the chair you see in the photo, and we can take a closer look at my week.

CURRENTLY READING: 

I have been periodically reading The Girl in White Gloves, by Kerri Maher…I hope to finish it eventually. 

Then I will grab another e-book or two.  I have my eye on this memoir by Jennifer Weiner: Hungry Heart.  It has been on my Kindle for a while (since October 2016!), and it will count for my nonfiction challenge.

***

So…that was my week.  Not a lot of fun or excitement, but then again, we’re still on lockdown.  Even though parts of the state and this city will slowly reopen, I am still restricted due to being in senior residential living.  However, I am grateful not to have to make that decision on my own.

I do miss my granddaughter Fiona…but she regularly sends updated photos, like this one.  I like how she plays around with hair color.

And to start off Mother’s Day weekend with something beautiful, here’s what Fiona and her mother sent me today:

WEEKLY UPDATES: PLODDING ALONG…

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

And let’s join Kathryn, our leader in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, at Book Date.

 

This week was a slog.  I ended up reading and reviewing three books, and two of them were review ARCs.  But I was still reading the third one until after dinner tonight. However, I did spend more than two hours on Skype with my eldest son and DIL in Prague.  That was time well spent.  We had the video feature on, so we could see faces and surroundings.  Video chatting is a recurring thing these days of “sheltering in place.”  On Monday I’m scheduled to have a video chat with my doctor, since we didn’t have the annual physical due to The Virus.

Movies were great.  I saw The Lost Husband on Amazon Prime, based on the Katherine Center book.  I started watching Normal People on Hulu and also took in a rather depressing flick on Prime starring Naomi Watts called The Wolf Hour.  Earlier I began viewing Notes on a Scandal, a movie starring Cate Blanchett and Judi Dench.  I actually once owned the DVD…but we all know what happened to many of my books and movies.  LOL.

While I did enjoy my books, they felt too much like work…I shouldn’t read two ARCs in the same week.  I have one more to read for May.  Perhaps I need to pass on more review books for a while if they feel like a job.  Something to ponder.

I did spend some time changing up my blogs…headers, etc.  I know that I am avoiding things when I start doing that. 

So…that was my week. Let’s have some tea or coffee and take a closer look at the week.

WEEKLY UPDATES: ONE DAY AT A TIME…

**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 had a good week of reading, viewing, and visiting blogs.  I read and reviewed three books, wrote  seven posts, and skipped around between Hulu and Amazon Prime for some movies.  Like Apple Tree Yard, based on a book I read a few years ago.  And We Were the Mulvaneys, based on a Joyce Carol Oates book.  I’ve watched it before, but I am in the mood for revisiting old favorites.

On Hulu, I’m up to date on Mrs. America, which definitely reminds me of the 70s and the ERA bracelets we once wore.  We all hated Phyllis Schlafly, lol.

My mug collection is growing.  Here are a few on my desk.  You might also notice my little VW bug paperweight:

Yes, I am a little OCD.

So…let’s grab some more coffee (here’s a favorite photo of another collectible mug, one that, sadly, didn’t make the move!) and take a closer look at the week.

She’s borrowed your life. But what if she decides to keep it?

That was my week, and overall, it was a good one.  As long as we forget the fact that we are living in scary times.  But we only have to take one day at a time…and read!  And watch movies and shows.  I did enjoy this lunch the other day:  turkey, stuffing, and strawberry/rhubarb pie.

Another week of “sheltering in place” in my apartment, surrounded by my books, laptop, and the movies I am finding online.  I am handling it all pretty well, since I’m basically an introvert of the hermit variety…LOL.  I do miss going out, but I have managed the isolation pretty  well.

I read four books this week, although one was a reread. I wrote six blog posts.  I’ve noticed that when I read more, I write fewer blog posts.  Hmm.

I enjoyed watching more episodes online:  Little Fires Everywhere, Amazon Prime movies, and the first episode of The Good Fight’s fourth season.  Love that show!

So…let’s grab some more caffeine and take a closer look at the week.

That was my week.  Let’s all hang in there and get through these difficult times.  I’m avoiding most news outlets, especially the ones that are led by the White House.  I am longing to go shopping in a supermarket…sigh.  Until that happens, I will try to find grocery deliveries.  The staff here have shopped for me a couple of times, but they are not available for those tasks very often.

Here is something I am fantasizing about:

WEEKLY UPDATES: NOTES FROM ISOLATION…

Good morning!  It is time for more Notes from Isolation.  During this past week, we had scheduled outdoor walks for twenty minutes each day!  Just to mark the occasion, I went to my favorite store (Amazon) and ordered a new denim jacket to wear in celebration.

Shopping, movie bingeing, and a little reading have marked the days.  I spent last Sunday reading a book that I eventually DNFed…sad, but true…and then went on to read and review two books.  Then yesterday, I discovered two Kindle book versions of classic tomes my mother had in her childhood, and which I still have.  I read and reviewed one of them! Cornelli, by Johanna Spyri, the author who gave us Heidi.

I  also wrote eight blog posts!

I am still loving Little Fires Everywhere on Hulu, and finally got into Ozark’s Third Season.  I enjoyed a movie with Helen Mirren, The Good Liar, which was based on a book I enjoyed of the same title. I read it in 2016, but only gave it 3.5 stars.  I liked the movie better, probably because of Helen Mirren.

Now I’m loving my second cup of coffee…so grab yours and I’ll take you to details about the week.

CURRENTLY  READING:  The Watergate Girl, by Jill Wine-Banks, my fourth book in my Nonfiction Reading Challenge…

It was a time, much like today, when Americans feared for the future of their democracy, and women stood up for equal treatment. At the crossroads of the Watergate scandal and the women’s movement was a young lawyer named Jill Wine Volner (as she was then known), barely thirty years old and the only woman on the team that prosecuted the highest-ranking White House officials. Called “the mini-skirted lawyer” by the press, she fought to receive the respect accorded her male counterparts—and prevailed.

In The Watergate Girl, Jill Wine-Banks opens a window on this troubled time in American history. It is impossible to read about the crimes of Richard Nixon and the people around him without drawing parallels to today’s headlines. The book is also the story of a young woman who sought to make her professional mark while trapped in a failing marriage, buffeted by sexist preconceptions, and harboring secrets of her own. Her house was burgled, her phones were tapped, and even her office garbage was rifled through.

At once a cautionary tale and an inspiration for those who believe in the power of justice and the rule of law, The Watergate Girl is a revelation about our country, our politics, and who we are as a society.

That was my week…what did yours look like?  Are you also “sheltering in place”?  How are you doing?  I have no recent treats to share, but just as a reminder of what normal looked like, here is one of my favorites.  I took granddaughter Fiona and her boyfriend Dylan out to celebrate her birthday.  That was in February…such a long time ago!

As Week Two of our Lockdown comes to an end, I realize that I am coping better than I could have imagined.  Being an introvert helps.  Plus finding great things to read and watch, along with my urge to rearrange my space.  All good.  My choices of books this week helped, as well, and I ended up reading three.  Which puts me right on target with my Goodreads Challenge.

I am still loving Little Fires Everywhere on Hulu, and the fact that new episodes show up regularly (Wednesdays).

Last night I found Season III of Ozark, a show that isn’t quite as fascinating now…but I’ll keep watching for a while.

Let’s grab some more coffee (and thankfully, I still have some!), and take a closer look at my week.

WEEKLY UPDATES: REJUVENATION…

Good morning! Today’s post will link up to The Sunday Salon, The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves, 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 week of lockdown has had some good moments.  More reading, of course (three books read and reviewed), and some good viewing on Hulu.  I finished the three available episodes of Little Fires Everywhere.  Plus, as with most bookish people, my alone time is rejuvenating.

With meals delivered to my apartment, I am looking around and changing a few things…again. The bookshelves that were in my entry way were problematic when staff kept coming in, sometimes two or three at a time, and some of them bumped into the bookshelves, disrupting my nice arrangement!  So here is what I did today:  I moved the shelves to a corner across the room…completely opposite from the entry way.

I hope to continue enjoying this solitude, with more reading; it helps ward off the anxiety over the virus.  I have also learned to avoid the White House briefings everyday, which do nothing to make me feel better.

Let’s grab some more coffee and take a closer look at the week:

**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, I was determined to lighten up my reading, hoping to distract myself in a pleasant way.  I knew that I would also want some kind of mystery to read, too.  I succeeded on both counts…but it took all week to read and review two books.  Not that unusual lately, however.

I wrote only four blog posts, a definitely underwhelming event.

Around the residence, there have been daily changes in our routines and limitations, so I holed up part of the time in my apartment rearranging the furniture.  The space is small, but I had been thinking of how I wanted my space to look.  I moved the computer from the back wall next to the TV…to a corner by the window.  And rearranged the other furniture around it.

So while I was rearranging things and reading my books, I could almost forget about how isolated I am feeling right now.  Blogging and reading do help.  Then I watched the new Little Women movie on Amazon Prime.

Amazon packages continue to arrive regularly.  Let’s take a closer look at the week:
