Mailbox Monday ~ September 7th
After several years of being on tour with different blogs as the monthly host, the Mailbox Monday Blog is now the permanent home for the meme.
Summer is hanging on and we are having a warm week — which is good because this is a holiday weekend in the US. Monday is Labor Day, a day off work for many. I’ll be volunteering in the morning at the bird shelter and then home for a little BBQ-ing and relaxing in the backyard, And maybe even reading a book.
Here’s what arrived last week . . .
