**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.
What a week! Hot weather is still streaming down, but I’m trying to stay cool. I went out a few times, always taking my book. I had lunch with my daughter and grandson on Tuesday…then on Thursday, I had to report to Jury Duty. That wasn’t fun…we had to wait on uncomfortable chairs in the Assembly Room to find out if we had to serve. By noon, I was reconciled to being stuck there at least all day…and then, good news! Half of us were dismissed. I then happily went to Marie Callender’s to celebrate with a pot pie and wine. I took a piece of pie home. (Photo of lunch at the bottom of the post).
I did manage to read and review three books this week, and my Read the Books You Buy Challenge now totals 69 books.
This week, I resumed watching The Ranch on Netflix…and I loved the country songs at the beginning of each episode. Plus, Debra Winger and Sam Elliott always make me smile.
Today I’m having lunch with an old friend who is in town…and then I’m planning to see The Glass Castle.
Sunday, I’m joining my daughter and friends for her birthday brunch:
I’m long past drinking my coffee this morning, so let’s get right to a peek into last week’s reading and blogging.

I have a long list of books that I have labeled “up next.” I started reading one that will take a while, as I only read it just before I sleep:
America’s Queen, by Sarah Bradford
The Secrets She Keeps (e-book), by Michael Robotham (Currently Reading)
Mean Streak, by Sandra Brown (I started this one, which is also a bedtime read)
That was my week! What did yours look like? Here is my celebratory lunch from Thursday:
