It’s Monday, and it’s a holiday, but that doesn’t affect me much these days.  However, it means there will be no mail delivery…so I can stay home all day long!  Except…I do need a couple of things from the store.

My bed is made….so I guess I won’t be crawling back into it…although I was very tempted to do so today.

Maybe I’ll just run over to Target, just around the corner, instead of that extra mile to Save Mart.  LOL.

I love getting new bedding…not long ago, I got some new sheets I enjoy...


may 4 - sheets

…and now I have the quilt, at the top of the post.  It is also reversible.  I didn’t have to go out and shop for it, either.  I found it on Amazon.

Am I turning into a recluse?

Probably not completely, as I’ve posted several photos of me eating at The Elephant Bar, Marie Callender’s, etc.




Earlier in the month, I went to my daughter’s house to celebrate Noah’s fourteenth birthday.  Now all of my grandchildren are either teenagers or twenty-somethings (Millennials).





When did we start identifying people by the era in which they come of age?  Well, I do love being a Baby Boomer, which makes me feel special and privileged..LOL; except when I see those ads on TV that warn us we might be silent carriers of Hep C.  What’s that all about?

Enough said.


Reading.  I am loving The Orphan’s Tale, and even though I had heard raves about it from other bloggers, I wasn’t so sure.  I am not really into circuses.  But the era pulled me in.  So I’m almost finished…and I’m glad I ignored my biases about the Big Tent.





So back to reading…and catching up on DVR movies.  What are you enjoying this week?



  1. I know, what is up with that era thing? I don’t know WHAT I am… a Gen X’er I guess? Color me confused lol. Anyway hope you enjoyed your Monday… love the long weekends like this. 🙂

    • Thanks for stopping by, Greg, and it’s been a nice “reclusive” day. I didn’t even end up going to Target…too engrossed in reading The Orphan’s Tale.

      The only era I’m certain about is Baby Boomers…but that is also the biggest period of time, too, which makes some of the Gen X-ers almost cross over into our group.


    • Thanks for visiting, Patty, and I’m definitely glad that Christmas is in my rear view mirror…with all the stuff safely back in the bins. Enjoy the week ahead! I am eager to get my hands on the Amanda Eyre Ward book…I’ve bookmarked it on Amazon.


    • Thanks, Iliana, and I do find myself thinking of excuses NOT to go out…when years ago, I was always looking for a way to get out and do anything at all. LOL.

      Maybe it was having to go to work every day for thirty years (except for holidays, sick days) that made me really appreciate being home.
