**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.
This week was a mix of odds and ends, with only a few blog posts, but I did read and review three books. My total for the Read the Books You Buy Challenge is now 55.
My youngest son had a birthday this week. We texted, and he shared a photo from the beach, featuring his wife and a bonfire. It took me back to being there at the beginning of the month…and I wanted to be there again! Especially since our hot weather continues.
I finally finished watching Doc Martin on Netflix…and now I will have to find another show. Sigh. Whenever I come to the end of a series, I always hope for more seasons. But I think that’s not going to happen with this one.
Lately, I’ve been requesting household items from Amazon Vine. I got a tablecloth earlier in the month, and yesterday, these lovely placemats arrived.
Let’s take a look at the rest of the week…
