**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.
Another week flew by, and while the temperatures were slightly cooler (90s on most days), it was too warm to spend outside. It was a busy week, with the exterminator coming on Wednesday to deal with the cricket problem…which seems to have worked. Knock wood!
I left the apartment after the spraying, as recommended. Went to Barnes & Noble for a bit, then The Elephant Bar for lunch…and finally, to my daughter’s salon for a spiff-up (trim and color).
My carpet cover arrived on Monday, and now I can slide around in my chair happily. Note: this new chair arrived a few weeks ago from Amazon Vine. Who knew?
I read and reviewed THREE books this week…and I now have 44 books completed for the Read the Books You Buy Challenge.
No thrillers this week, just sweet books about family, relationships, and interesting characters. Today I took Pippa with me and headed to Marie Callender’s for some soup and iced tea.
I watched a delightful Netflix series this week…and finished it. The Last Tango in Halifax. I’ve been enjoying the British offerings for a while, from the police procedural shows to the family sagas….and I have almost developed an accent. Or at least have added some expressions to my repertoire. LOL.

I have a number of books from which to choose this week…so I’m not going to decide right now. But I am eager to follow my moods and my whimsical leanings….Perhaps one of these….
So…that was my week. What did your week look like? Right now, I’m enjoying iced tea in one of my vintage tumblers.
