Here we are again, rambling on about our thoughts, our feelings, and our perspectives.  Join our host at Bookishly Boisterous,  to see what others are chatting about.  Let’s grab some coffee and have a chat.


Welcome to another Coffee Chat.  I planned to write it at my Rainy Days and Mondays blog.  I do like changing things up, and since I’m pretty much done with rearranging my apartment, the blogs are the next focus for me.  LOL.  But, I ended up back at An Interior Journey!  This week has brought some good books again.  First, I read and reviewed an Amazon Vine book:  Lifelines, by Heidi Diehl. Next I was glued to the pages of The Lying Room, by Nicci French. (Click titles for my reviews).

  • Now I am intrigued by Demi Moore’s memoir Inside Out. I ordered the hardcover version for the photos.

  • I’ve seen most of her movies, and I even stayed awake for her appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s late show the other night.  I do miss my DVR, though; back in those days, I could record late shows to watch the next day.
  • I have a stack of hardcover books awaiting my attention:

  • On Monday, I went boot shopping.  Yes, time to set aside the sandals, and the boots I already had…well, the heels were too high!  So here’s what I bought, and they’re actually comfortable.

  • Last night, I was trying to shoot photos of the dining room, etc., and nothing was working on my phone.  I was in a state of panic, of course; but then noticed that there was a software update available, so I thought:  why not?  It worked.  But I was nervous, since sometimes those updates mess everything up.
  • Last week I mentioned massive PG&E outages…and I’m happy to report that ours stayed on throughout.  I think the outages helped in the areas with wildfires.
  • I was also waiting for a doll that I “lost” in the move, but the one that came was just as tiny as the previous one.  But I’m thinking they work well together.

  • I still have a collection of dolls in a garage near my daughter’s house.  She has reluctantly agreed to take me there…just to find another old favorite or two.  Then I’ll be done.  LOL.


That was my week…what did yours look like?

    1. Thanks, Kathryn, my doll rescue has become a bit of an obsession…but then again, it’s all part of making my place feel like home again. LOL.

      I keep thinking I should just go ahead and get a DVR, but then I keep postponing it. Sigh.

      Enjoy your weekend.


  1. Love the boots! I’m going to Ohio near the end of November and since I’ve lived in Florida for over 35 years I have no winter clothes. Guess who is going shopping soon.

    Love the dolls! My mom was a doll collector and had a big spare bedroom full of them and had shelves on the walls going around a huge Florida room with dolls sitting on them. She also had a display case for some of the most expensive ones in the corner of the living room.

  2. Cute boots! I love shoes, etc but hate shopping for them.
    We cut out our cable service this summer and I’m still trying to figure out how to view shows that aren’t live. My kids usually come to my rescue but I’d like to be able to do it myself, you know? I’m glad your power stayed on!!

    1. Thanks, Mary, I don’t like shoe shopping either, but my daughter took me, and she ran up and down the aisles picking out possibilities for me. LOL.

      I’ve been watching shows online when I can’t see them live. Some are on Hulu, and others are on CBS-All Access.

      In fact, right now I’m getting ready to watch How To Get Away with Murder on Hulu.


  3. I love your boots, very stylish! I have a hard time shoe shopping because I have a wide width foot, oh well.

    I actually just finished the Demi Moore memoir. I used to enjoy her movies but when she married Kutcher I thought she was trying to hang on to her youth, but you never know what goes on in other people’s relationships. I felt her book, if truthful, redeems some of her questionable actions. Enjoy!

    1. Thanks, Rita, I agree about Ashton Kutcher, but after reading this book, her choice made sense for her.

      Shoe shopping is hard for me, too, but I found a shoe warehouse place that offers many choices. And if I take my daughter, she runs around fetching shoes in my size.

      Enjoy your weekend.


  4. I love the boots – I’ve got a pair pretty much like them and they get a tremendous amount of wear because they look fab with trousers and also are smart if I team them up with a skirt – I tend to wear my skirts on the long side. The dolls are really cute. It looks as though you have your home more or less as you want it.

  5. I like your boots. I went to low heals a number of years ago. I have a nice pair of brown boots but might have to replace my black ones which are a little torn up.
    It sounds like you are getting your favorites set up to enjoy. That is nice.
