I haven’t participated in Weekend Coffee Share for a while so here it goes.
If we were having coffee I’d be mouthing off how sick I am of the weather. That April and May have been cold and damp overall. Yes we had a few nice days – enough to get us mildly excited thinking “it might be here”. Only to be freezing within 24 hours. I’d also tell you I had my winter jacket on until the end of May and I wasn’t happy about it.
After our weather rant. I’d like to move onto what we have been watching on Netflix lately. I just finished the Crown and started The Impostors. I usually like to have two on the go as you know sometimes you don’t feel like one or the other. So what are you watching and why? Documentaries? Hmmm…. not my first choice but tell me anyways.
That said. I just finished a book by Michelle McNamara “I’ll be gone in the dark”. It is about the Golden State Killer in the 1970s & 1980s. Michelle was a journalist and wrote about her obsession of the serial killer. The sad thing was she passed away before the book was finished and also before the guy was caught. A friend recommended the book and I am not usually drawn to non-fiction but I really enjoyed this book. It wasn’t gruesome and she just gave enough detail for the reader to get the idea.
Since I enjoy a good book I’d also tell you how much my sister and I are enjoying reading the Louise Penny (Canadian author) Detective Gamache series. They are set in a small village south of Montreal. Each novel is an individual mystery but the main characters’ lives are intertwined through the books. There is also a side mystery that she weaves through the first say five books. Detective Gamach is someone who you want on your side – a compassionate truth seeker. I would recommend if you enjoy mysteries and want to get your teeth into a series. Oh if we’re having coffee I’d be asking if you have a recommendation.
At this point we’d be talking about summer plans. What events are coming? When? What are we interested in? New restaurants? Music? One of us has to pick up the Doers and Dreamers Guide. That lists everything happening in the province over the summer months. So how was is your weekend going?
You can always start now!
