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 the week comes to an ending, I am happily ensconced in my little apartment, pleased with the two books I read and reviewed, and with six blog posts behind me.  I also have a stocked fridge again…and plans for the week ahead.  On Wednesday I have a routine dental appointment scheduled, and my Thursday takes me back to the hospital for another scan.  After speaking to the Oakland doctor last night, we’ve decided on reviewing them and all my other records on 10/2, at which time we’ll talk about a possible surgery ahead…in the Bay Area.  Could I finally put this medical issue in my rear view mirror?

Just for fun, I changed up another of my blogs:  Curl up and Read…

I’m off coffee today, as I had some issues yesterday…but I am eagerly anticipating my favorite caffeinated drink in the days ahead.  Let’s enjoy some virtual coffee and take a closer look at my week.
