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 finally finished my third book of the week.  My pattern remained similar to previous weeks.  The first book flew by, the second one competed with other activities, and I was still reading the third one this morning (Saturday).  But I enjoyed each book.  I’m feeling a little under the weather, with a sore throat…unusual for me, since I take allergy pills and other medication for these issues.  I always suspect something in the air, and I did go out and about more this week.

I enjoyed my usual TV shows, although I still have a few to watch on the DVR.  I started a new Netflix series: Northern Rescue, with William Baldwin and Kathleen Robertson.  I also watched some old favorite movies, including one of my old DVDs, St. Elmo’s Fire, a Brat Pack film from the 80s that takes me back to my younger days.

It was a pretty good blogging week, too, and I had fun making new headers for some of my sites.

Let’s grab some more coffee…or even some tea for my sore throat…and take a closer look at my week.
