Shelter In Place - Day 6, Week 2

Stay healthy! Be safe!

Thanks for stopping by :-)


  1. OH lovely place to walk with an ocean beach. (Not the spring break FL beaches!) We are very happy staying home and we're adjusting to the new routines.

    Have a healthy week and enjoy some good reads!

    Anne - Books of My Heart Here is my Sunday Post   

  2. I wish I was somewhere where I could take a stroll right about now. Stay well and happy reading!


  3. Walks by the ocean can be so relaxing- and in this situation it sounds perfectly lovely! Hope you are having a good weekend, and happy reading!

  4. Neat that you got to try a new soup. I love soups while its still cold. Yay for lovely ocean walks.

    Have a good week!

  5. I have been getting out for a walk as often as possible (so much rain last week) but my view isn't nearly that nice!!
    Have a great week!

  6. Some of our beaches are closed right now because of the whole social distancing thing, enjoy the walks while you can!

    Wishing you a great reading week, be well!

  7. Awww I need the ocean breeze. I can't wait to travel again someday after all this is done

  8. I love your happy things. I need to focus more on the happy in times like these. The Betrayal of Trust looks like a great read.

  9. I'm just trying to get caught up on some of my TBR, but focus is such a challenge with everything going on. Hoping the weather warms up a bit here so we can get out and enjoy a walk later. Take care of you and yours!

  10. The soup sounds good and it sounds like you are trying to stay occupied.
    You got a nice variety this week. Enjoy your walks while taking care.
