Weekend Book Sharing and Blog Visits
It's the weekend, so it must be time to enjoy a few of my favorite book memes. This is a great opportunity for readers and bloggers to share what they've been up to - both newly received books, what you've read or want to read and any bookish or personal news/updates.
I'll be linking to: Stacking the Shelves is hosted every Saturday by Marlene @ Reading Reality The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. The Sunday Salon hosted by Deb @ ReaderBuzz, Mailbox Monday hosted by Words and Peace is also a weekly gathering place to share new books received. Join me in visiting the wide array of book blogs in the world.

I added 19 books to my TBR wish list this week.
I'm over covid with seemingly no lingering effects but hubby is still testing positive and feeling sick at day 14 - sigh. Thanks for all the well wishes last week - it's very heartwarming. We had an annual family joint birthday celebration planned for this weekend which we postponed due to --- covid. I'm back at work and all is slowly returning to normal.
A PAINTING BY TERRIE PURKEY - CELEBRATING ARTISTIC ENDEAVORS
In Tuesday's Top 20 Tuesday bookish goals for the year, one of the things I listed is Balance - trying to find balance in my life to enjoy all of my creative endeavors, not just blogging.
Here's a couple watercolor paintings from a few years ago when I was really focusing on trees..... I miss painting.
Hope you have a most excellent upcoming week and hopefully finding time to enjoy a good book. Looking forward to visiting as many as I can again this week!
