Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
Happy Monday everyone (well it is still Sunday night here, but I don’t think I’ll have much time to get on my computer tomorrow). I hope you are all doing well. Monday’s are always better when there are books involved right?
I actually spent most of this past weekend home crocheting and watching NetFlix. I have still been feeling unwell with the allergic reaction I’ve been battling since April 1st. It seems once I was done with the round of meds last week, the rash and the swelling on my face returned and became progressively worse throughout the day. Long story short, I had to make a trip to the emergency room last Wednesday night to get an IV put in with a Benadryl/Steroid concoction (not fun times). I’m now on a new round of meds and hopefully once I am finished with the pills next week, the stubborn reaction will have been knocked out of my system so I can finally feel better and get allergy tested.
Well, since I have been home from work since last week getting some rest, I was inspired to grab my hook and yarn and whipped up a little monkey. Thanks to Serena who shared this pattern link with me on Facebook. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to make one. It was perfect timing as crocheting relaxes me and I really get caught up in the work. I am happy with the result, and the pattern was easy to follow. I figured I would display him here with my latest book acquisitions.
The Italian Divide: A Craig Page Thriller (Craig Page Thrillers) came via the publisher.
Pound for Pound: A Story of One Woman’s Recovery and the Shelter Dogs Who Loved Her Back to Life also came via the publisher.
Also in the mail, and e-book from Net Galley, just in time for National Poetry Month, The Complete Poems: Anne Sexton.
