**Mailbox Monday is now hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.
Did your week speed by, too? And now that the month is over, it’s time to do wrap-ups. But before we dive into the blog posts, etc., I must share that I saw Labor Day at the theater on Friday…and loved it!
The ending to the movie had me sitting near the edge of my seat…which is kind of surprising, since I’d read the book. But don’t you enjoy watching scenes playing out visually, even if you know what is probably going to happen?
And speaking of movies, I just watched the DVD for Enough Said, with Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini…such a poignant film, filled with authentic moments and the kind of awkwardness we can expect in the situations that are unfolding: Middle-aged empty-nesters trying to forge new relationships, with an unexpected twist.
After the movie on Friday, I went to my favorite neighborhood bistro, and here’s what my fortune cookie said: Now is the best time for you to be spontaneous. Serendipity!
