WEEKLY UPDATES: A FABULOUS READING WEEK…

weekly-updates-in-march

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.

Another week flew by, and it was mostly sunshine around here.  So I did get out and about some, but always took Pippa with me, resulting in FOUR books read and reviewed.  Twenty-Two is now my total for the Read the Books You Buy Challenge...not a big leap this week, as three of the books I read were Vine and NetGalley review books.

Did anyone watch the Oscars?  I loved Jimmy Kimmel’s banter, as well as some of the shots he got in on “one who will remain nameless.”  The mix-up at the end was horrific…and a little hilarious.  As usual, I recorded it and watched afterwards, fast-forwarding through the parts that are less enjoyable to me.  I have not seen Moonlight...or La La Land, the “almost” win.  Both got a lot of awards.  I saw and enjoyed Manchester by the Sea...and now must see Fences.  Viola Davis is a great actress, IMO, with such diversity in the roles she plays.  I feel like seeing The Help again this weekend.

Now…today.  What to do!  I should go shopping for that Mother of the Bride dress, as April 1 is coming so fast. (My hilarious daughter, picking April Fool’s Day!).  And I suspect I might need several shopping trips.  But I don’t love shopping…unless it’s on Amazon.  Books and handbags are my favorite items to buy.  I can get them on Amazon, but I shouldn’t order the dress there. LOL.

Instead of deciding, I’m going to grab another cup of coffee…and chat about my week.
