COFFEE CHAT: FINDING MY GROOVE…

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.

One of these days I hope to blog three or four times a week!  I am not sure why I can’t seem to find my groove…but it probably has something to do with the whole moving/transitioning thing.  LOL.  My best day this week was time I spent with my granddaughter Fiona.  She helped sort through boxes, hang things on the wall, and shred things!

  • I hadn’t had a mani-pedi since my Big Awful Event…so today Fiona is taking me to the salon.  Yay, Fiona!  Her schedule has just lightened,  now that she has finished massage therapy certification.
  • Even in the midst of all the adjustments and changes, we need to pamper ourselves.
  • I finished Little Beach Bungalow, by Joanne DeMaio (click for review), and I’m already loving my NetGalley ARC After the End, by Claire Mackintosh (NG-6/25).
  • Today is the 24th birthday of my eldest grandson, Alec.  He has grown up so fast!  He is the handsome young man on the far right…next to his dad, my #2 son.

  • It is 6:00 in the morning, and I’ve been awake for two hours!  I try to stay up late to avoid waking up so early…but it isn’t working so far.
  • My surgery has been scheduled for July 22…and while I want it to be over, I had hoped to be more settled before the Big Event.
  • I loved watching the first episode of Big Little Lies, Season II.  It felt too short, though.  Hmm.

How is your week unfolding?  Enjoy!

  1. It has been a really great reading week here. I finished “The Friends We Keep” on Monday. I ended up liking it quite a bit I gave it four stars. Then I read in one day “The Accidental Beauty Queen” which I loved! It was a really fast, read. The book was intelligent brain candy and great fun! I laughed out loud a bunch it was a nice change of pace from my more serious read “The View From Alameda Island” which I am just about finished reading hope to finish today in fact. The book has a serious subject matter, and a very disturbing scene so I am not sure why it is being billed as a light read. So far I have read 4 books on my list of summer beach reads.

  2. So lovely that Fiona could help you get things up on the wall and then take you for some pampering. I’m heading to my color/cut appointment today. Or, as I like to call it, uninterrupted reading time 🙂 I’ve read more this week than usual. Finally catching up to my GR challenge – I’m a few books ahead of schedule, they tell me. I hope you can get your sleeping schedule more to your liking. I’m an early bird but that means I’m in bed most nights by 9pm. Geez that’s a bit early, isn’t it???

  3. I’m listening to Have You Seen Luis Velez? by Catherine Ryan Hyde and loving it.

    It took me a while to get back into the groove of things after my move, and to be honest I’m stiil not 100% there as far as blogging, especially writing reviews.

    Glad Fiona could take you to get a pedi, I’m due for one myself but have been too busy to think about it. I can’t seem to straighten out my sleep either. I can’t go to sleep on time most nights but still have to get up early. I don’t like it.

    Hoping your surgery goes well!

  4. You’ll need a nice nap if you’re waking up so early. We must pamper ourselves when times are tough. I hope you have a great day doing so. I need to watch the new Big Little Lies.

  5. Must be nice to get some of your things sorted and around you, making it feel more like home. Yay for Fiona, she sounds wonderful. A Claire Macintosh book would be perfect from an engaging angle. 22nd of July will come quickly.
