With January already winding down rapidly, I find myself lost in books and blogging.

And while gathering together old photos from my albums, I came upon this one that I shared in the Saturday Snapshot post.

It’s a photo of my daughter and me at the end of 1978, the year I was winding up my master’s degree and writing my thesis.

1978 another version

It has been a week of blogging, too.  My topic on Musing Mondays:  Book Recently Purchased; I did a Cozy Monday post asking What Captures Your Imagination Today?; on Wednesday, I explored Thoughts from the Interior of My Blogging Journey; my Hump Day Potpourri was all about Endings & New Beginnings; at Curl up and Read, I announced my Giveaway Winner; my Friday Potpourri was about Dreaming Bookish Thoughts.

I did some excerpts and showcased interiors at Story Corner:  Exploring Interiors:  Images & Excerpts; and my Sweet Saturday Sample featured A Collision of the Past and Present.

My reading has knocked two books off of Mt. TBR for that challenge; and to avoid further cluttering of the shelves, I borrowed books from the library.
