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.
After last week’s great reading (five books!), it was inevitable that the following week would be less than impressive. I only read and reviewed TWO books, and I’m into the third one, which I may finish today. But I’m savoring the books.
Also…the week included a series of outside activities, like a mani-pedi on Tuesday and hair styling on Thursday. Below, left, I’m relaxing over a movie (Motherhood), with Uma Thurman, Minnie Driver, and Anthony Edwards. On the right…see my new hair style sprinkled with more purple than last time.
So…is it any wonder that the reading came in second place? I also tackled some long overdue “spring cleaning.”
Today I’m finishing up some tasks…and then, because it is raining, I may curl up on my office sofa, where I feel so cozy. Let’s grab some coffee and chat about the week.

Then wherever my moods take me.
That was my week…what did yours look like? Last night I enjoyed one of my favorite comfort foods: French Pot Roast.
