WEEKLY UPDATES: BOOKS, MOVIES, & SUMMER TREATS

picmonkey-image-august-framedst-25-update

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.

 

After a cooler week, it got hot again, but today will be “down” to 97.  Yes, a “cooling trend.”  But the nights are cooler, and soon the heat will be in the past.

Labor Day was a quiet one, with books and movies, with one memorable Amazon Video that I loved:  The Meddler, with Susan Sarandon and Rose Byrne.  A story of a mother who is overly involved in her daughter’s life makes for some fun moments.

Then came a grueling Tuesday, with more dental work.  But it’s done, now, so I can focus on forgetting it…lol.

My total in the Read the Books You Buy Challenge has now reached 60!  This week, I read and reviewed three books, and I’m now on Books Four and Five, which I don’t expect to finish today.

I finally finished the four seasons of Longmire, and I’m eagerly awaiting Season 5, coming September 23.

I’ve been playing around with new blog headers, as Bloggiesta is on the horizon:  September 15. 

Let’s grab something caffeinated and talk about the week.

That’s my week.  What special or ordinary moments are you sharing today?  Come on by.  The strawberry shortcake (below) is a remembrance of the good things of summer, now that it’s almost over.
