Good morning!  Let’s gather around with our caffeinated beverages to chat about our weeks, our books, and our perspectives.  Join our host at Bookishly Boisterous to see what others are sharing.

When I last posted a Coffee Chat, I was still struggling with the Block Editor.  While it still throws me for a loop or two, things are getting better.  I am finding ways to work around the challenges. 

  • I will be so glad when 2020 is behind us!  Let’s hope we survive it, and that the election doesn’t bury us in more darkness.  Sigh.
  • This week, I have read and reviewed two books so far:  Remain Silent, by Susie Steiner, and Return to Virgin River, by Robyn Carr.
  • Then I started reading The Lost for Words Bookshop, by Stephanie Butland.
  • On Thursdays, I participate in a Books from the Backlog event, and have rediscovered “forgotten” books, many of which I have since read.  Today I added another Robyn Carr to my device…from the backlog:  The Summer That Made Us.  I can’t believe I haven’t yet read it!  Do you ever rediscover books that are languishing on your shelves and wonder why?
  • This week, I also rediscovered freshly ground coffee!  Yes, imagine that.  I inadvertently clicked on coffee beans in my Instacart order, and I was definitely surprised to see those beans when I opened the bag.  I immediately ordered a coffee grinder from Amazon…and it arrived the next day!


  • I am now blissfully sipping on the best coffee ever!

  • In the mood to celebrate fall, I retrieved my autumn wreath from my under-the-bed storage.  My granddaughter Fiona brought it to me last year:

  • So, despite the very frightening world around us, I am finding things to savor and cherish.


How is your week going?  Are you rediscovering/recreating things that bring you joy?



  1. What a happy mistake in ordering the coffee because now you have such tasty coffee. I listened in to a bit of the debate and had a few hearty chuckles at Trump’s claims. He lies with aplomb does he not. No, world leaders are not looking at his handling of Covid in amazement. We are stricken with dismay – well I am not a world leader but… you know what I mean.

    1. Thanks, Kathryn, I can’t believe how he continues to pat himself on the back, and claim how others see him as a competent leader, when the exact opposite is the truth!

      If it weren’t so terrifying, it would be hilarious!

      And oh, yes, happy accident with the coffee grounds.

    1. I am loving the freshly ground coffee, Mary! I am seldom going to the dining room for breakfast these days, as I prefer my coffee…and being able to relax in the morning.

      Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for visiting.
