Welcome to another Coffee Chat, in which we share bookish and not so bookish thoughts.  Head on over to Bookishly Boisterous to add your link.


Today brought upper 80s, which is a definite improvement over 90s or triple digits.  Yay!  I woke up early, and I was happy that I had slept well last night…probably because it was cooler.

I finished watching Season 6 of Wentworth, and continued with Ozark.  I’m only on Episode 3 of that show; for some reason, I’m not as enchanted with it as I was in Season I.  I do still enjoy Jason Bateman.

  • I texted with #2 son’s fiancee today…and at her request, I sent some photos of his childhood she wants to use when she throws a birthday party for him in October.  I sent this one, among others.  I love how much he enjoyed his chocolate cake on his fifth birthday.

  • I do love looking at photos from the past.  I need to figure out how to synch. my photos between my iPhone and Microsoft Pictures.  I ended up sending photos via e-mail.
  • My books this week have been fabulous, beginning with a NetGalley ARC of The Dream Daughter, by Diane Chamberlain.  (NetGalley -10-2) (Click title for my review.)

  • I’m currently reading Cross Her Heart, by Sarah Pinborough, and I’m enjoying it.   Secrets from the past are about to surface, and our MC will be running again.


  • Tonight I had soup and a margarita at California Pizza Kitchen and brought home this pie for later:


What did your week look like?  Are you enjoying fall, or is summer still hanging on?



  1. Our temps have come down a bit too. I have a feeling the Chamberlain book will be on my favorites list this year. I enjoyed Pinborough’s previous novel so I’ll watch for your thoughts on her new one!

  2. Cooler weather is always so wonderful! We are sort of getting more rain and bits of sun so normally our lovely fall weather is a bit tarnished. I don’t like Ozark this year at all! Den has to watch it without me!

    Your books are always intriguing!

  3. It’s still hot here but Sunday is supposed to be in the 70s (because of Florence) – too bad we won’t be able to be outside to enjoy it because Monday is supposed to be back in the 90s.

    I love old photos too and that one of your son is adorable!

    I’ve heard a lot of great things about Cross Her Heart.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Kathy, and I hope Florence leaves you guys alone!

      I finished Cross Her Heart yesterday…and wow, I was holding my breath at the end.

      I love that photo of my son, too. He so loved his chocolate cake.

      Enjoy your weekend.
