FRIDAY POTPOURRI: VICARIOUS TRAVELS…AND BOOKS

In the photo above, Aubrey is showing that she is “holding up the tower.”  She loves the fun things she can reveal through photos.

Since she is in Prague for a university semester, I am curious if she is actually doing any homework.  LOL.  Just kidding, Aubrey.

This week my son Craig, who lives in Prague, is now in Liverpool..and then will go to Portugal…for his photography work.

Here he is with Gabi, enjoying a repast.

Here is Gabi clowning around in this London telephone booth:

Today is Craig’s birthday, so they are definitely celebrating as they travel.

My reading week has been pretty good, with three books read and reviewed:  All the Best People, by Sonja Yoerg; Poison, by Galt Niederhoffer; and The Story of Arthur Truluv, by Elizabeth Berg.

But then I lost my mojo.  I picked up one book after the other, read a few pages, and then set each one down.  Nothing seemed to captivate me.  Sigh.

So…I grabbed a very “old  and dusty TBR book,” hiding on Pippa since November 2014:  The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, by Gabrielle Zevin.

I am loving it!  I have another of her books, Young Jane Young…so I am sure that I will be reading that one soon.

This week, Firefox, my trusty browser, made some drastic changes in the format…and I was lost, trying to figure out simple functions.  I was throwing things, too.  I hate when they make major changes…just as I felt when Word Press did their so-called “improved way to post” a while ago.

But we do cope…and find ways to work around these things, or adapt to the way things are.  What choice do we have?

Enjoy your weekend!

    1. I know! Updates with slight changes would be okay, I guess, but when everything is out of whack and you have to try to figure it out…well, that is just mean. LOL.

      The WP ones really annoyed me, but I found my way back to the old dashboard…and so far, so good.

      Thanks for stopping by, Deb.
