**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 I sit at my laptop in my cozy office, I am enjoying the warmth from the heater…it is on for the first time this season! For a while, I thought summer heat would go on forever…then the cooler days arrived, and for a little while we were in that limbo between hot and cold.
But now that I am snuggling under the covers at night, and today felt chilly for the first time, I took the leap and turned the system on. I like the first heated morning as it takes the chill off. I will snuggle up on my sofa in the office and read…and watch TV. And practice my attitude of gratitude.
For now, let’s talk about last week. I read the three books I had planned to read! It has been a while since that happened. First I read an e-book that I had downloaded several months ago, which brought my challenge total to 104...and then I grabbed two NetGalley ARCs and inhaled them. They were sooo good.
But…then I started picking up books, reading a few pages, and tossing them aside. Until I remembered a little book I’d been wanting to read forever. In fact it had been on Pippa for three years! So I started reading…and a few hours later, I was done. Now that’s how it should be!
So…as for the rest of the week, I started a new series on Netflix called Wanted. I watched movies and shows from my DVR…and then yesterday, I learned that Longmire has a sixth season available. So I’ll be watching it today…or tomorrow.
I also want to see the movie Lady Bird, with Saoirse Ronan. Earlier in the week, I had lunch with a friend and we saw Murder on the Orient Express. So it has been a week of books and movies.
Grab your coffee, and let’s take a closer look at the week.
