Welcome to a Coffee Morning with a view of the patio…and a new umbrella to replace the tattered one, destroyed by our windy April.

Mornings are the only cool time of the day, now, and can you believe that I was longing for the warmth just a month ago?  LOL.

The book on the table is one I’m going to start reading soon:  Secrets in Summer, by Nancy Thayer (from Amazon Vine).



  • Last night I stayed up late to finish Not a Sound, by Heather Gudenkauf, a wonderfully riveting thriller from NetGalley.  (Click title for my review).



  • Today I am getting another manicure…gel, of course.  My nails never survived three weeks without chipping when I used regular polish!
  • Afterwards, I have errands…and maybe I’ll treat myself to a drink and some soup or a salad.
  • Pippa, my Kindle, always accompanies me, so we can enjoy reading along with the libations.
  • I found this photo on my daughter’s FB page…an interesting take on game night.  L to R:  Noah, Heather, David, and their friend Joe….



That was my week, in photos, books, and thoughts.  Linking to Christine, at Bookishly Boisterous.



    1. Thanks, Kathy, and I hesitated about gel manicures because I was afraid they would be like the acrylic ones I used to get (they ruined my nails!). But they are not…and now I’m definitely sold.


    1. Thanks for visiting, Vicki, and I love the gel, too. I could kick myself for waiting so long to use this process! I seem to always be the last one to try new trends…LOL.

      I’m loving my books now, too!
