If we were having coffee, we would be indoors some place with air conditioning.  It’s hot here in Portland, unseasonably hot.  Not as hot as it is other places but still hot for us.  Because we don’t usually have more than five or six consecutive days of high heat each year, many people don’t have AC.  I don’t.  So I suffer through it.  My daughter ordered a window unit for me but my windows open side to side so I would lose my window (or half of it).  I thought if something window-like could be put in, like maybe plexi glass, it would be okay.  Or maybe it can be put in so that it can be removed when we get through our hot spell?  I don’t know enough about it and I’d have to find someone who can do it because, although I do have my daughter’s boyfriend that says he’ll do it, he’s unreliable as to time so it could be another couple of summers before I get to enjoy that window AC.  So I think they’ll end up using it for my grandsons’  bedroom when it arrives on Monday (don’t you just love Amazon Prime?).

I suppose you’ve noticed my photo at the top of the post.  It’s a selfie that I turned into this photo using an app on my phone (Pho.to Lab Pro).  I have the android version on my phone (got it in the Amazon App Store) but there are versions for iOS and for use online.  It’s kind of fun to play with.  Maybe we can play with it while we chat over coffee?!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’m more than pleased with the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision declaring gay marriage legal.  Wow!  it is about time.  I’m so happy for many of my friends and a few of my relatives that are ecstatic over this decision making their love legal.  It makes me smile and I’ve also shed a few tears thinking about the happiness it has brought, although there are more than a few people vocally angry about the decision.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am slowly tackling all the clutter in my house.  After years (at least a couple) of not being physically able to lift and carry things,  a lot of “stuff”  accumulated so now I am tackling one corner at a time and carting it to the Goodwill.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am still struggling to learn a new OS, a new browser (Chrome), and the new laptop!  Oy vey!

If you have a few more minutes, I’d like to share my answers to Conny’s Would You Rather Book Tag.  Don’t worry, I won’t tag you!

Would you rather only read trilogies or only read stand-alones?

Stand alones

Would you rather only read male or female authors?

Equality in all things, including authors!

Would you rather shop at Barnes and Noble or Amazon?


Would you rather books were made into TV shows or movies?

Neither.  I think most books should be kept as books.

Would you rather read only 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?

5 per week.

Would you rather be a professional author or reviewer?


Would you rather be a librarian or a bookseller?


Would you rather read only your favorite genre, or every other genre but your favourite?

I’d rather read all genres, including my favorite (which varies from time to time)

Would you rather only read ebooks or physical books?


If you want to, consider yourself tagged, if not no problemo!

If we were having coffee, I’d finish up by asking you what you are up to.  What has been frustrating this week?  Triumphs? Puzzlements?  Challenges?  Tell me!  I want to hear!  Oh, and the answer to the question in my post’s title is here.

That’s it for this coffee share…I’m off to grab some iced tea and tackle clothes sorting!  Enjoy your week!
