My birthday weekend, last weekend, was wonderful. I haven’t seen my sister in a few years. She was supposed to visit last year with her three boys, but the Covid lockdowns started just weeks before she could come down. We had a spa day at home with my daughters – watched a chick flick, put masks on our faces, hands, and feet, and enjoyed sinfully delicious chocolates from the local chocolatier.
I received some fun gifts, too: a Kindle Paperwhite because I just had to have one after my dear friend Mae Clair mentioned that they were waterproof; a signed copy of Jeff Wheeler’s book The Killing Fog, which I loved and reviewed on here; an Oculus, which was my fun gift that I didn’t even know I wanted – let me say, VR games are a whole new level of fun; and a few more wonderful things.
The best part, though, was having my little family plus my sister all together for the weekend.
How was your week?
From the About section: “I read a lot of books. In fact, I am a certifiable bookwyrm. No, that is not a typo—that is “wyrm” as in “dragon”. I am a book dragon. Books are devoured by me. All sorts of books, too— memoirs, classics, historical fiction, biographies, YA, plays, historical nonfiction, graphic novels, even the occasional children’s book—no book is safe.”
“In the course of all this reading, I often come across very different books that share a common thread. A fantasy YA novel may touch upon the same idea as a historical account of life in early 20th century England. A memoir may remind me of a graphic novel I’ve read. Connections can be found in the strangest places. I use this space to share some of the unlikely links I have found in literature.”
Books For Life – a bookish site by Romanian author, Romelia Lungu
From the About section: Romelia Lungu explains, “On this website you will find everything about my crazy thoughts and all my work. I am the author of six published books and many more will follow. I am writing multi-genre books, and I am also the creator of Books for Life magazine. It is a monthly issue and I design it in order to promote authors and their work worldwide.

For my spa day last weekend, I wanted to watch Sierra Burgess Is a Loser, but my youngest daughter nixed that idea. Instead, we watched To All the Boys I Loved Before (the first one). My sister only has sons, so I figured she needed to watch a fun chick flick, and it’s Emily-approved, unlike Sierra Burgess.
I also tried two new shows on Netflix, The Crew with Kevin James and Ginny and Georgia. The Crew is funny-ish. I would love to see more classic Kevin James comedy in upcoming shows. Ginny and Georgia – I think I watched with my brow furrowed the whole time. It’s like the anti-Gilmore Girls. I do like the snarkiness, though – I always appreciate well-delivered snark.
Did you read, watch, or do anything fun this week?
