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.
Three months ago I began this strange new journey. A journey to reclaim my health and transition to a different way of living, from my residence to the routines I have created. I have fought against some of these changes, but overall, I am beginning to refocus my attitude. This way of living was not one I had imagined for myself, but sometimes we can be surprised by how we can embrace new things, even those that we initially reject.
- I am still waiting for my body to be ready for the surgery that should have happened almost three weeks ago…but didn’t. While I wait, I am starting to read and blog more. I get out and about with old friends and new friends. I look ahead to family and friend events. My #2 son and his wife, as well as my daughter and her husband, are planning a dinner out with me on August 16. My son will see my new place for the first time.
- My granddaughter Aubrey has started the first leg of her New Zealand adventure. Here she is hanging out with two of her brothers on the beach at Jalama before taking off.
- This week I have read and reviewed Dear Wife, by Kimberly Belle, and Someone We Know, by Shari Lapena. (Click titles for reviews).
- Last night I started reading Careful What You Wish For, by Hallie Ephron.
- On the weekend, I binge-watched the seventh and final season of Orange is the New Black...and Season 7 of Wentworth.
- I’ve been going through the smaller collection of DVDs that I brought to my new apartment…watching and enjoying…
- At the end of the month, we will have a popular Elvis impersonator show up here and entertain us: Jeremy “Elvis” Pearce.
- My #1 son, who lives in Prague, is impressed and has elevated my residence here up a notch for bringing in one of his favorite entertainers. (My son has done a little Elvis impersonating himself, in Europe).
So, on to another day and then another weekend. What have your days and nights been like?
