**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.
The mini-bloggiesta started yesterday. Typically, I started working away on it earlier in the week. I am impatient, and since I had my plans all ready to go…well, I had to do just that! Here’s what I have done on my Serendipity blog (and Curl up and Read): Mini-Bloggiesta! January 13-15…Sign-up * Start.
My impatience could also be attributed to a very rainy week, and yes, I did some reading and movie watching…but I can never settle on just one thing. I don’t have anything special going on Netflix…so there you have it. The makings of misdeeds—if you can count STARTING EARLY as a misdeed.
The THREE books I read and reviewed were very engaging…and I now have FOUR books to add to my Read the Books You Buy Challenge – 2017.
I am happy that some of my favorite TV shows are back: This Is Us...and another one that I haven’t seen much around the blogosphere, Tyler Perry’s Too Close to Home. I started watching it because of Kelly Sullivan, who once was a favorite character that was “killed off” on General Hospital. Just as Justin Hartley, on This Is Us, was a fan fave killed on Young & the Restless. So…the “dead” soap stars find new life on nighttime.
Soon…(January 26), TGIT will be back!
Grab some coffee or a mimosa…and let’s chat about the past week. (Check out that mug for my “marital status”). LOL
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOG:

So that was my week…what did yours look like? Since last week was rainy, I scarcely left the house…but here’s something I enjoyed the Saturday before….Elephant Bar’s Pomegranate Martini, with Mac & Cheese.
