Good morning! Today’s post will link up to The Sunday Salon, The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves, for weekly updates.
**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 month is almost half gone, and what do we have to show for it? Well, there has been some reading…and some movie watching. I read and reviewed three books, and one of them was a chunkster (600+ pages). That book inspired some movie watching, as it was a biography of Jane Fonda. I downloaded some of her old movies through Amazon Prime (Klute, Sunday in New York, and Barefoot in the Park), and brought some others to my bedroom, and they are waiting on this little table (below).
Speaking of Jane Fonda, Season 4 of Grace and Frankie is coming to Netflix on January 19. Yay! I love that show so much that I tend to binge-watch the whole new season in one day…which then means I’m waiting a while for what comes next. Sigh.
Disjointed just released Season 2…and I saw Kathy Bates on The Talk yesterday.
For most of the week, I stayed home—trying to keep my eating out to a minimum—plus, the weather was in the 60s, with some rainy days. On those kinds of days, I like to curl up on one of my sofas and read or watch movies.
Let’s grab some coffee and take a closer look at the week:

That was my week…what did yours look like? I didn’t go out to eat this week, so I’m sharing a photo of my soup and margarita from a couple of weeks ago. I’m thinking of having it later today or tomorrow.
