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 I had fun hanging out with my granddaughter Fiona.  We picked up two pairs of eyeglasses for her, and then had dinner at a new restaurant in our neighborhood called Lazy Dog.

She is not wearing the new eyeglasses in this photo, as we went back for them after we ate.

  • The new restaurant replaced The Elephant Bar.  The remodel took several months, so this was our first opportunity to try it.
  • Here is what I had:  fish and chips and a pomegranate martini:

  • My reading this week has been deplorable.  I haven’t even finished one book, but I am almost ready to close the final page on Tell Me Lies.  It is not what I expected, as it’s slow going….but I am enjoying it.
  • Next I plan to read The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters.
  • This past week, Sheila, at Book Journey notified us that she is hosting First Book of the Year again.  In anticipation, I already ordered my pick for 2019.
  •  Last night, I went out for Mexican food in the neighborhood.  Yum!


How has your week been going?  Adventures, shopping, books?

    • Thanks for stopping by, Laura, and I have been hooked on the First Book of the Year event since it began. In anticipation, I picked mine already; it is part of a series I’ve been following.

      I was excited to hang out with Fiona…between work and school, she seldom has much time available. Lucky me today!


    • Thanks for stopping by, Patty, and I will definitely be going back. There is an unexplored menu! LOL. It is right there, in my favorite mall…and, because they’re new, the servers were so attentive. Plus, Fiona liked it.


  1. I love fish and chips and that picture looks so good! The Elephant Bar always has good food, but man it’s pricey. Wish I knew why I always manage to read your posts right before lunchtime. Hahaha.

    Glad to hear you’re enjoying Tell Me Lies even if it was a slow starter. I’m sure that your reading will pick up soon, too. 🙂

    • Thanks for stopping by, Kathy, and I can’t wait to get copies of Fiona’s photos in the new glasses. She got two pairs. She took some photos when we were together, but she probably decided to take more. She wasn’t satisfied with the ones she took. LOL.

      I finally finished the one book, and now I’m immersed in The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters. Enjoy your weekend.


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
