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.


Some of you may have read about my disappointing surgery outcome…a non-event, except that I had several little incisions, a sore throat from the breathing tube, and assorted discomfort from anesthesia.  The laparoscope camera revealed a risky landscape in my interior, so it is now back to the drawing board.  Sigh.

  • Now I am choosing to consider the days ahead as an opportunity to finish more books…and some other items on my to-do list.
  • This morning, I went to downtown Clovis to have coffee with a friend at La Parisienne cafe, a cute little bakery-cafe.

  • I loved viewing the final episode of Season II, Big Little Lies, but now I’m hoping for another season.
  • Yesterday, my daughter brought over a small case with several of my favorite DVDs (from the hallway shelves on the far right that held around 800 of them at my former place ):

  • Here are around 100 of them, old and new:

  • I do love binge-watching favorite movies.


That was my week so far.  What did yours look like?  Now I’m going to watch today’s episode of General Hospital on Hulu.



  1. I started BLL and really enjoyed it- the setting alone is stunning. I need to finish the first season so I can move on. Sorry to hear about your surgery outcome- it’s so frustrating when it’s our body and we can’t control things. Ugh. Best of luck!

    I’m so sorry to hear about your surgery. I hope they get it all situated for you soon. I will have to check out Big Little Lies soon. It looks really good. Hope you have a great weekend.

    Yeah I was real sorry to hear of your surgery too — but hopefully you can heal up so it can be fixed later.

    I saw the Big Little Lies season 2 finale — it seemed a short season and now I want more! For the most part, I liked it and thought Meryl Streep’s character made the perfect unstable villain. I’m guessing there will be a Season 3, especially if they ended by going to the police, right?

  4. I’m sorry to hear about the surgery, I hope you recover soon.
    Last week, I finished ‘The Shadow of the Wind’ Carlos Ruiz Zafón and I thought it was wonderful. The best book I’ve ever read. Now I’m getting through ‘It’ by Stephen King. It may take me a while! Have a good reading week!
