Monday Memes

Hi Everyone!!  Just wanted to touch base and let you all know what has been going on around here.  I hope I'm not jinxing myself, but things seem to have quieted down.  My Mom finally got discharged from the hospital and is doing OK.  She does have a little weakness from the mini strokes she had but is glad to be back at the facility, with my sister, where they both reside.  I want to thank all those who kept her in your prayers.  Because I was going in different directions, I got behind in blogging, visiting, commenting and when I would finally sit down to read, I would fall asleep.  I have finally caught up and will hopefully be back to normal, but then me being normal could be questionable lol.  And it's a good thing because this week is going to be a busy one.  We have a Guest Author stopping by every day to talk about their latest book, with giveaways, so if you get a minute or two, try to drop by.  Have a great week!!  And again, thank you for the prayers.

This week's question:
Where is your favorite place to read?

My answer:
I have 2 favorite places to read, depending on the time of year.  When it is cold or chilly outside, you can find me reading in my recliner in my combined office/library/blogging room.  And now that warm weather is approaching, I will be outside reading either by the pool or on really hot day, sitting on my reading float in the pool.
Do you have a favorite reading spot?  One to call your own?

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

Hope you enjoy your new books, Cheryl. The one with the little girl looks poignant.

Reading on your float must be fun, I'd be so nervous of getting the book soaked, though.

Here's mine:

It's my recliner, year round, for me.
Now if I had a pool....

If only I had a pool....she dreams of a sparkling blue pool..back to reality for me! The dog book looks cute. I wonder if my dogs would sleep better if I read it to them?

Sitting on your float, reading in the pool - I am green with envy!!! That sounds like bliss!

I like reading on the beach better than anywhere else.

I have two favorite places to read also, in my Reading Corner in my bedroom, and on my enclosed front porch, until the sub-zero weather arrives.

I was out of town at the end of the week and didn't hear about your mom. I'm glad to see she's improving. It's so tough to watch your parents age.

The Bedtime Book For Dogs looks cute. I've seen it on a few blogs recently and I'm getting really curious about it. :)

A reading float in the pool? Now why haven't I thought of that... I should try that :)
