This week (and last) have brought a mix of new library books, recent downloads, and NetGalley and Vine Review reads. (Above: The New Neighbors, by Simon Lelic, purchased on April 10).
I like the feeling of making some progress toward acquiring books that I didn’t buy, while also enjoying the bliss of a new release book “whispering” toward Pippa, my Kindle.
So far I have borrowed five books from the library’s Overdrive System…and read four of them. I just received A Nantucket Wedding, by Nancy Thayer.
Wedding bells are ringing, a family is reunited, and new love is blooming—for better or worse—in this captivating novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Island House and Secrets in Summer.
This weekend, I plan to start reading some of my new and older downloads…and also spend some time with my granddaughter Fiona. We have tentative plans for dinner and movie watching. I love her new look (below); her hair is growing out, and it looks good on her, IMO. I am even getting used to all the piercings. LOL. My daughter has a lot of tattoos, so these girls are definitely expressing themselves.
Here is my daughter, some of her tattoos showing, with David, on their honeymoon trip to Europe.
She has changed a lot since the days when she was a pre-teen. Here is a shot of her in the townhouse, Circa 1980s. Those were the days of flipped hair and jeans tucked into socks. Back then, she was already preparing for her hair styling career. (Note: on the left, see my desk with a landline style that one doesn’t see anymore. Nor do we usually see landlines).
I still have a few landlines, though: Below, the Minnie Mouse phone is on display in my office.
This designer pay phone (which works!) was one I purchased while living in that townhouse. I also have a Winnie the Pooh designer phone that is resting on a shelf above my office nook…for the day I might want to bring him down.
So now you know some of my secrets…I love designer phones; I enjoy photos from the past; and I am also in the moment with my family and love showing them off a bit.
