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 share.

As usual, I am reading, blogging, and ordering packages from Amazon.  I am determined to fill out more of my shelves with both hardcovers and paperbacks, just so I will feel as though I have a library again.  I’ve even ordered some I once owned and loved.  Below, note how I’ve rearranged the shelves to allow for more books to join my photos.

  • My blogs are also undergoing my rearranging obsession, with some new headers…and a cute little image to capture my thoughts on my reviews.  Below:  an image for this blog’s reviews.

  • I finished reading and reviewing Regretting You, by Colleen Hoover; (click for review).  I am almost finished with The Daughter, by Jane Shemilt (a paperback that will go on my shelf).
  • On Netflix, I started watching Season 6 of Grace and Frankie, and I am beyond excited!  I’ve only watched three of the thirteen episodes, but I have decided to savor them a bit.  It doesn’t take long to binge-watch a whole season.  Sigh.
  • As I read my fiction books, I am also making a little progress on The Reluctant Prince, about John F. Kennedy, Jr.
  • Here is a glimpse of Aubrey in New Zealand…you can see Hobbit Village in the background.
  • Meanwhile, in my apartment, I used my little step stool and rescued my Chez Raine sign from the top shelf in the closet.  Now it lives on the bathroom wall. It was once above the front door of my foothill house, and then spent time in my condo dining room.



How are you spending your Thursday?  Reading, blogging, or adventures?  Come on by and let’s chat.



  1. Isn’t it fun to buy and organize books????

    I am excited to start watching S6 of Grace & Frankie. Lord how I love all the main characters. They are all such phenomenal actors.

    1. Thanks, Jinjer, I love the whole idea of Hobbit Village…and buying and organizing books is my new favorite thing.

      I have been slowly watching Season 6 of Grace and Frankie, as we all know what happens after we binge-watch! It’s over, and yes, there is one more season, but then it will truly be over. Sigh.

      Love those characters!

      1. We finished S6 yesterday. Now the long wait for S7. All those actors and characters are just so great! I’m not sure I can pick a favorite. Of course no one can top G&F, but Sol makes me laugh the most and I love Brianna’s bitchiness.

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Jinjer, I tried to slow down my viewing a little as the long wait for another (and final!) season will be excruciating. I love how the stories touch on such timely issues. I had those same challenges this year, “rising up.” Lol

    Enjoy your week.
