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.
We had quite a bit of rain again this week, and yesterday it pounded so hard that I kept checking the skylight in the kitchen…so far, so good! It was a good week for reading, though, and I read and reviewed FOUR books. I have now added THIRTEEN BOOKS to my Read the Books You Buy Challenge.
Today I am going to find a place to have a new passport photo taken…the ten years have gone by, and it’s time to renew! How did that happen? It seems as though I just got it.
I settled down last night to watch some Netflix, but kept skipping from show to show, not finding anything I wanted to binge-watch…and then I remembered my Amazon Videos, some of which I added this week. I started watching Z: The Beginning of Everything, and several hours later (1:00 a.m.) I had finished! Whew. Since it is based on the novel Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, by Therese Anne Fowler…I grabbed my iPhone and ordered it! Yes, I am impulsive like that. I’ve read other “Zelda” books, but none that were set in the early years. Looking forward to reading it!
But I woke up late this morning, as a result…and I’m not yet fully caffeinated. Here’s a photo that might help!
