It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Happy Monday

Weekly report of last week's activities, reading and new books in the house....

Last week:

Monday -sick. yuk.

Tuesday -still sick but hydrating and medicating.

Wednesday -Feel great! Our church has a "Trunk 'n Treat" for Halloween. Games and food inside then the kids circle the parking lot (multiple times) for candy. Someone had peeled a watermelon then carved it to look like a brain.

Thursday -

Friday -

Saturday -

Sunday - wait, it's Monday? Yikes, four days chained to my laptop planning an upcoming vacation, working on my schedule and reading an ongoing serial (I did purchase the first book in the series so I know that the first chapters (1-14) are 310 pages in print. I'm currently on chapter 299. I think I started this week on chapter 145. So, yeah. I've spent way too much time on this!)


Hope everyone has a great week planned!

Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home; print, electronic and audio. Started by Marcia of The Printed Page, the mailbox is currently on tour. Check it out so you know where to go next month.

Thank you to Kristen at BookNAround for hosting in September.

Thanks to October's host at Mailbox Monday.
I'm not sure who is hosting for November, I'm posting before they do
