WEEKLY UPDATES: AVOIDANCE & DISTRACTIONS

a-new-and-framed-logo

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.

 

Now that fall is finally here, and another week has flown by, I must confess that my reading this week sucked!  I bounced from book to book, and started a few, only to move on to another.  But…I did finish reading and reviewing TWO books, and my total at Read the Books You Buy is at 86.

On Netflix, I watched Season I of Doctor Foster, and enjoyed seeing it again.  On the 25th, the Gilmore Girls, A Year in the Life, is coming…and on one of my TV channels, a marathon of the old Gilmore Girls is going nonstop.

I have it on the TV as a muted backdrop, since I binge-watched the show on Netflix a while ago.  But I love the comforting images of Stars Hollow and the quest for coffee, more coffee!

One thing you will notice this week:  I wrote a LOT of blog posts (instead of reading?).  Would you believe TWELVE? And I went crazy making new blog headers….so, let’s take a look. (And sip some coffee).
