Good morning, readers! Here we are on a Thursday, already, and I am tucked away in my little Nook above, reading blogs, answering e-mails, and finally enjoying some peaceful moments after the Big Carpet Cleaning.
My office was where I hung out while the cleaning took place…and afterwards, too, as I waited for it all to dry. Since my office gets little traffic, and looked almost new after rearranging the furniture, it didn’t need the cleaning right now. I may do it myself later.
Here are a couple of shots of the dining and living room areas:
When I brought most of the furniture back in, I left a few things in the garage to sort through…like magazines, birdhouses, etc. I now get to decide what to keep in my Interior World…and what to store.
While I was relaxing, I read two great NetGalley books this week: Smoke (click for review):
And then yesterday, I finished Corrupted, by Lisa Scottoline. Click for my review:
My NetGalley Shelf was empty…so guess what? I had to request something. This morning, my request was approved and I downloaded this one! Yay! The Things We Keep, by Sally Hepworth, will be released on 1/19/16…so I have a little while to get it read.
Anna Forster, in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease at only thirty-eight years old, knows that her family is doing what they believe to be best when they take her to Rosalind House, an assisted living facility. She also knows there’s just one another resident her age, Luke. What she does not expect is the love that blossoms between her and Luke even as she resists her new life at Rosalind House. As her disease steals more and more of her memory, Anna fights to hold on to what she knows, including her relationship with Luke.
When Eve Bennett is suddenly thrust into the role of single mother she finds herself putting her culinary training to use at Rosalind house. When she meets Anna and Luke she is moved by the bond the pair has forged. But when a tragic incident leads Anna’s and Luke’s families to separate them, Eve finds herself questioning what she is willing to risk to help them.
Meanwhile, I am currently reading Who Do You Love, by Jennifer Weiner.
What does your Interior World look like today? What weekend plans do you have? I am getting my hair colored and styled today, thanks to my lovely daughter Heather. Here she is with her son, Noah (my grandson, of course!). We spent a lot of time together this summer with the house guests here, but lately, we’ve both been so busy. Looking forward to catching up today….
