Welcome to another Coffee Chat in which we share some bookish (and not so bookish) thoughts.
The week started off with a relaxing Monday, followed by an odd and hectic Tuesday. I had to have the smog test done on my car. The results were not good, with one test failing. Apparently the engine computer needs to reset after having the battery changed (actually, that work was done a few months ago), and he recommended driving the car for 60-80 miles on the freeway, after which it should pass. I had never heard of such a thing, but a woman in the waiting room said she had the same problem. So I spent a couple of hours driving to a southern town (a total of 102 miles round trip), took the car back…and it passed. Weird, right?
- Just now I Googled it…and apparently it’s a “thing.” So…I guess it’s not so good to simply drive around town a lot. More freeway driving in my future! A road trip ahead?
- The whole day was gobbled up with this nonsense, but since the car passed, I had to reward myself and relax at Mimi’s with this mini-dinner:
- The rest of the week was spent reading and reviewing one book: The Gunners, by Rebecca Kauffman (click for my review).
- I’m ready to start another June NetGalley arc: Shadow Dancing, by Julie Mulhern. I love this funny cozy mystery series.
- While scrolling through the titles on Netflix, I stumbled upon a dysfunctional family drama called Greenleaf. Oprah plays a role in the show, which centers around a family that leads a sprawling Memphis megachurch…and there are secrets and scandals. Those last bits grabbed me, plus the Oprah part. I soon found myself addicted to it.
- I’ve finished the two available seasons…and I’m curious about what happens next.
- Do you ever do that? Stumble upon something that doesn’t seem like your “thing,” only to surprise yourself with how it draws you in?
- I’ve decided that the drama, scandal, and family dysfunction are actually my catnip, no matter how they are presented.
- Today I have a hair styling appointment…my bangs are almost covering my eyes. I sent my daughter a funny text with an emoji of hair covering my face…asking if she could help. She did her “ha-ha” reply and scheduled an appointment for me.
- So…that’s happening this afternoon, and now I must decide what to do with the rest of the morning. Read, visit blogs, CLEAN MY CLOSET? No on the last thing. LOL
How is your week shaping up? Any drama…or delightful events?
