I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted by Kim of Caffeinated Book Reviewer and The Sunday Salon (TSS) hosted by Deb Nance of Readerbuzz where participants recap our week, talk about what we are reading, share any new books that have come our way, and whatever else we want to talk about. I am also linking It's Monday! What Are you Reading? hosted by Kathryn of Book Date where readers talk about what they have been, are and will be reading.
I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend and had a good week. Mouse performed in her school's winter band concert earlier in the week, and I took my staff out for an early holiday lunch. It was good to see them all in one place again and we enjoyed catching up. Now my family and I are in the middle of our weekend busy-ness. Since I last visited with you, the Christmas tree is up, although it is not yet decorated. Hopefully we can make time to do that soon. My husband recently got me hooked on an app called Duolingo, a language learning app. I took several years of Spanish in high school and college, but after decades of not practicing, well, I forgot most of what I learned. I have been surprised at how much of the basics I do remember though, and it's been fun to jump back in--albeit in a casual manner.
It has been awhile since I shared photos of my cats. I tried to be sneaky and take these while they were sleeping. Nina caught me in the act, but she at least stayed in position.

Thank you for voting!
My TBR List is hosted by the awesome Michelle at Because Reading. It’s a fun way to choose a book from your TBR pile to read. The 1st Saturday of every month, I will list 3 books I am considering reading and let you vote for my next read during that month. My review will follow (unfortunately, not likely in the same month, but eventually--that's all I can promise).
What I Have Been Watching
This past week we watched Wednesday on Netflix. It has gotten so much positive buzz, and I am happy to say we all really enjoyed it. The series had just the right mix of darkness, humor, and mystery. There was a great supporting cast. Enid and George were among our favorites. I hope there will be another season.
What have you watched recently?

Our tree is up with ights but no ornaments yet. It's one of those Decembers. Maybe we'll get it dne this weekend! And I've been really curious about Duolingo- I keep hearing about it and thought it might be fun to dabble in French. I'm still mulling that...ReplyDelete
I'm watching Station eleven right now... I forgot they adapted the book and now I'm giving it a try :)
Greg - We didn't manage to get the lights or ornaments up this weekend. Hopefully sometime this week. Did you get yours up? Duolingo is addicting. Or it has been for me. I need to remind myself I have other things to do. I heard Station Eleven was adapted to a show. I really need to get around to reading the book. Thank you for visiting!Delete
I am so happy that you became a Wednesday fan too!!!!!!! And I should try duolinguo to study portugues again!ReplyDelete
Sophie - Duolingo is a bit addicting, at least for me. :-) Wednesday was so good! I expected to like it, but it was better than I thought it would be. Your book recommendations for her were spot on. Thank you for stopping by!Delete
I hope you enjoy your next book. Nice images of the sleeping cats.ReplyDelete

Just realized I think I linked last week's Sunday post in my comment, so here is this week's post: https://lisalovesliterature.bookblog.io/2022/12/11/weekly-wrap-up-97-december-11th-2022/ReplyDelete
Lisa - I've done that before too. LOLDelete
I've had Duolingo on my phone for years. Whenever we're going to travel abroad I use it to learn some basic phrases and find it really helpful. I have Banned Bookshop on my TBR, recommended by some blogger - hope you enjoy the end of your book this weekend.ReplyDelete
Terrie @ Bookshelf Journeys
Terrie - That's smart! I can see how it would come in handy. I hope you enjoy The Banned Bookshop of Maggie Banks when you read it. I started it yesterday and am already hooked. Thank you for visiting!Delete
Well we might get a tree this week. maybe. Now that finals are over for my daughter. I can't decide if it will be busier or quieter the next few weeks. Hopefully a few less emails anyway.ReplyDelete
Anne - Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post
Anne - Does it look like you'll get a tree? We have an artificial one. Still haven't put on the lights or decorations, but maybe this week. Thank you for stopping by!Delete
I love the kitty pics. So cute. I'll have to check out Wednesday. I've heard good things about it. I hope you have a great week.ReplyDelete
My post is here.
Yvonne - I hope you like Wednesday if you watch it. Thank you for visiting!Delete
Your cats are so cute. I've never had a cat.ReplyDelete
Mary - I was raised with dogs and adopted my first cat after I was married to my husband. They suit my personality better--most of the time. I miss having a dog sometimes though. Thank you for stopping by!Delete
I love the kitty photos! They are both gorgeous!! I hope you enjoy Maggie Banks!ReplyDelete
Wendy - Thank you. :-) I am loving Maggie Banks so far.Delete
I hope Mouse enjoyed performing in her concert; I enjoyed my daughter's performances as she was growing up and kind of miss them now.ReplyDelete
Helen - She did. I think she was glad she was playing along with so many other kids. LOL Thank you for stopping by.Delete
Love the kitty pics! And I hope you enjoy reading The Banned Bookshop of Maggie Banks, Wendy!ReplyDelete
Melody - I started it last night and am loving it! Thank you for visiting!Delete
Your kitties are adorable! I have had to sneak off to finish a book quite a few times. I hope you enjoyed The Dark Archive!ReplyDelete
Carole - I think so too, thank you!Delete
Love the pictures of the kitties! They look very comfy. I just started The Invisible Library series and I'm looking forward to continuing it. I liked the first one quite a bit. The Banned Bookshop of Maggie Banks looks great! I hope you love it and that you have a wonderful week!ReplyDelete
Katherine - I wish I could join them. :-) I am glad you are reading the Invisible Library series and enjoying it. I hope you continue to do so. Thank you for stopping by!Delete
I was wondering if I should watch Wednesday. The jury is still out on that one.ReplyDelete
Harvee - If you do decide to watch it, I hope you like it. Thank you for visiting!Delete
Aww, cute cats. I really liked Wednesday too. I'd happily watch another season. :)ReplyDelete
AJ - Thank you. :-) They keep me sane. I really do hope we get another of Wednesday. I think they could pull it off. Thank you for stopping by!Delete
I was taking care of the grandkids this weekend, and I stopped by your blog, and Annie saw the cats and was asking about them, and that led to her asking what books you were reading...Golly, it looks like we spent a lot of time visiting your blog but somehow forgot to leave a comment!ReplyDelete
Happy you are going to read The Banned Bookshop.
Deb - I get distracted by cats all the time. :-) Thank you for visiting!Delete
Love the cute kitties!!!ReplyDelete
I don't have any Christmas decorations up yet so at least you are ahead of me. :-)
Jinjer - I love my kitties. :-) My husband and daughter put up a couple of the decorations yesterday, but that's as far as we've gotten this week. I figure it'll get done by Christmas. Thank you for stopping by!Delete
I use Duolingo too! It's fun but I think you need to know a bit of the grammar or it may be hard to understand what's going on.ReplyDelete
Glad to know Banned Bookshop won, can't wait to hear what you think of it!
Eustacia - Duolingo is starting to get a bit harder as I move into some of the phrasings I'm less familiar with. I'm really enjoying it though. My husband is using it to learn Japanese. I've discovered I have a bit of a competitive streak when it comes to the levels. I need to let that go. LOL Thank you for visiting!Delete
