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….
I am moving in slow motion this morning. It’s already almost noon and I am just getting this post ready. Oh well, it’s a lazy kind of Sunday. I can’t believe June arrived so quickly.

It’s the best of the lazy summer days. We have our morning coffee in those Adirondack chairs. There is something wonderful to be said about not being on any set schedule and just lounging around. My parents got hooked on this place as well so they vacation with us in the summers here, our cabins are next to each other.
