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.
Now that we’re sort of back to normal, post holidays, I am having a hard time mustering up enthusiasm for anything. Probably because of all that is happening in Washington, and how powerless we are to change anything. I am trying to avoid news items, but when I scroll through social media or even Google, it’s like a constant presence hovering over every page.
- Today I escaped my depressing surroundings by joining a friend (below) for coffee at Barnes & Noble. I like our get-togethers, a chance to chat and even vent a little. And have some treats.
- I’m trying to keep up with my reading, but I only finished two books last week, and one this week so far. I enjoyed Forget You Know Me, by Jessica Strawser (click for my review).
- Currently I am halfway finished with The Winter Sister, by Megan Collins, a NetGalley ARC. The book will be released on 2/5.
- I watched A Simple Favor on Amazon Prime last night…and liked it so much that I downloaded the e-book, too.
- While I was celebrating New Year’s last week, my No. 2 son texted this photo of him and his fiancee from their getaway in Hawaii:
- Speaking of books, I went a little crazy with “click to buy” behavior…and downloaded FIVE e-books. I started with two, settled back, and then, almost accidentally, found myself clicking some more. Sigh.
- I am eagerly awaiting the newest season of Grace and Frankie, coming to Netflix on January 18.
- I am avoiding the unpleasant housework that seems to be calling out to me. Now that the Christmas decorations are all tucked away in bins…I need to return to some semblance of my regular routines. Where is the maid when I need her? LOL.
- Seriously, though, I think I will capitulate to the urge for a housekeeper to come at least once a month. If I don’t, this will be what I look like, minus the 1950s style apron and dress:
So…that was my week, a few good things and a lot left to do. What did yours look like?
