**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.
This past week was one of pounding, windy rain that I do not love…it was great for reading, though, and I read and reviewed four books. Now I have completed SIX books for my Read the Books You Buy Challenge.
Besides reading, I went out to get a wonderful massage on Wednesday; later I curled up with some shows on TV. I watched This Is Us, Too Close to Home and even saw The Girl on the Train movie (again!) on Amazon Prime Videos. I started viewing an Amazon Prime Series, Covert Affairs.
Yesterday I went to the movies and saw 20th Century Women, starring Annette Bening, Elle Fanning, Billy Crudup, Greta Gerwig, etc. I loved it!
Afterwards, I headed over to Yard House (again!) to use another of my gift cards from Christmas. Here’s what I enjoyed, clam chowder and a Pomegranate Press:
A great week, despite the rain…which had an unexpected result in my kitchen. It dislodged the skylight cover, which came crashing down when I opened an upper cabinet…and didn’t realize it was hanging there, literally by a thread (or corner!). It broke, of course, and will be replaced on Monday. It feels eerie in my kitchen, looking up at all the space between where the cover was…and the roof.
Let’s see what else went on last week.
