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.
As I create this post today, a Hallmark Christmas movie plays in the background, and my coffee cup is brimming. So good!
Christmas music, decorations, and shopping frenzy almost obliterate the crazy news that surrounds us in our world…but between those distractions and the books I’m reading, I am almost in a good place. I read and reviewed three books this week and I wrote eight blog posts in addition to the reviews. I was still reading the third book yesterday afternoon, but got my monthly wrap-up finished before the day was over.
I’ve been watching shows on Amazon Prime, including Vera, an Acorn TV offering.
I had lunch with my daughter on Thursday…and, again, I forgot to take a photo! When I’m with someone, I am caught up in the conversation, etc. But she and I shared a lovely BLT from Mad Duck. It looked like this (I grabbed this photo from the website):
So…what else? It has been raining here! The downside, of course, is how slick the roads are. There have been lots of accidents.
Now let’s grab more coffee and take a closer look at the week:
