Morning! This week I shared a fun post with Plum Deluxe Tea and fall reads. There is a special offer exclusively for Caffeinated Tea Lovers, so be sure and check it out. Yesterday, we spent the day at Lauritzen Gardens. Sophia loves their Model Railroad Garden. The whole garden including the bridges for train tracks are made out of twigs, vine, pinecones etc. There a little villages, with Omaha landmarks. It is remarkable. I am looking for promo/review posts the week of October 24-28th for Cecy Robson’s Of Flame and Light. This is the 7th book in the Weird Girl Series, but Cecy assures me it will work as a standalone. Email if interested.  Enjoy the last week of September, and as always stay caffeinated!

    That botanical garden looks very nice, and that model train setup sounds fascinating. How fun. Nice to see the links for the October stuff too- I’ll have to check those out. Bring on the scary movies. 🙂

    I’ll be curious to see what you think of The Burning Page. Love that title, and I have to read the 2nd book yet.

    The railroad garden sounds so fun! There’s a mini railroad here at the Botanical Gardens that isn’t nearly as detailed or as big and the Tornado loves it. I’d never get him out of 1 like you describe! I loved the tea review. I have a couple of tricky people on my Christmas gift list who will love that! Have a great week.

      The tea subscription is such a clever and affordable gift for those hard to buy for folks are your list. Ha,the little Princess cries everytime we leave the garden.

    Oh I love sweatshirt season as well Kimberly, but alas it’s all but ended here. Hopefully our summer won’t be too vicious.

    Did I read somewhere that The Girl on the Train movie has a different ending to the book, do you know?

    I love Gardens!!! Sounds like you had an amazing time!!! Sadly we don’t have Autumn here but still just more summer in triple digit days. You’ve got a great selection of books this week. I hope you enjoy them all as well as your Autumn weather. I can’t wait for it to cool off here. Have a great week & Happy reading!!!!!

        I would take fall to summer in the same week. I’m so over this heat. I would love some rain more than anything. We haven’t had any since March. Poor California is in the drought of just hot hot hot. lol.

    Yay! I did it! My first linkup to The Sunday Post! 🙂

    I’m very much looking forward to your review of A Promise of Fire – that was one that I absolutely loved and I can’t wait to see what you think of it.

    I also see you have the 3rd Invisible Library book incoming – I’m going to have to binge read that series!

    Hope you have a great week!

    I love this time of year, sweatpants and sweatshirts. I can’t wait until the chill really settles in.

    The Railway Garden sounds amazing. I love that it is made of nature. Some people are amazing in what they can create. I also am a huge fan of train stuff. They have on in PA that is HUGE! We took the kids when they were little. Hundreds of model trains. I could watch them all day.

    I am so disappointed with the 31 days of Halloween on SyFy. They seem to have gotten away from the Cheesy horror that I love and replaced it with movies I don’t think are “scary” enough. I am looking forward to freeform’s halloween since I do love all of those but I don’t think I saw Coraline on the list. Hocus Pocus is a must for my daughter and I am we plan to watch it together.

    Have a great week, Kim! Happy Reading! ox

    I am literally sitting here wearing a sweatshirt with my pajama t-shirt on underneath, sans bra. I am celebrate this season like NO OTHER!!!

    OOOOO, you have Well, Hung!! I need me that one!! If I didn’t have Elle Kennedy’s new book to buy on Tuesday, I would be all over Well Hung.

    One book at a time… *sigh* I need to read what I got first…

  8. sherry fundin

    I want to be able to wear flip flops shorts and tshirts all year long. Even in winter, it is rare that I wear anything heavier than a sweatshirt., so I do love that. Hope everyone has a super weekend.

    Isn’t it funny how we so look forward to the next season? I’m thankful for seasons for sure and am done with the hot! Though I’ll never put away my flip flops, I am ready for some cooler temps!! Have a great week and enjoy your new books!

    OOoh nice! Sounds like a fun time! Still waiting for fall to start here in St. Louis. Tomorrow looks like a nicer day though! Temps might still fluctuate between nice and hot for a few weeks still. Sigh…

    Nice new reads too! Still waiting for my copy of Of Flame and Light to be resent from the tour I signed up for. I love Cecy’s books and can’t wait to read this one. Only I didn’t really open the email right away, thinking it was a mobi attachment, opened it last night to finally upload said document to my kindle, only to read that they would be electronically sent to kindles and whatnot and that the email address should be approved. Whoops! Lol.

    Hope you enjoy all your awesome new reads!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    I am glad to hear you had fun at the Lauritzen gardens with Sophia. It sounds like a beautiful place to visit. Enjoy your new books and have a great week!

        I do believe that. I think there are things that kids love and adults love … but during those tween and teen ages in between, kids just feel too cool for certain things. 🙂

  12. Berls

    The model railroad sounds so fun! I’m glad Sophia had a good time 🙂 I love fall – just not winter! I wish fall went directly to spring. But gotta love those sweatshirts!! I’m always cold – I even wear them in the house during summer because my family freezes me out with the ac!

    Have a great week Kimba 🙂

    The photo of the train garden looks wonderful. I wonder if there is video footage of it anywhere. You should get Sophia a train for Christmas! I still have to stop back around and hit a couple of your posts from the week before last. My week was a bit crazy and I didn’t get much visiting done. Have.a stellar new week. 🙂

    Sweatshirts are the BEST! And me and my daughter are SO looking forward to the 13 Days of Halloween movies…especially Hocus Pocus. 😀 That Modern Railroad Garden sounds amazing and like something Katie would LOVE. She’s been into trains since she was a tiny thing and had those wooden Thomas the Train sets. Hope you enjoy this last week of September. Happy reading!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Yes, I try to watch Hocus Pocus every year 🙂 Love sweatshirt season, although we haven’t quite gotten their yet. Our temps range from 96 to 70. I never know what the day will bring 🙂

    Once I finish up mu two library reads that I have now I might grab the second Cogman book, I loved the style of it!
    It doesn’t fell like autumn at all here, yesterday it was in the 80’s and today it’ll be in the 90’s. So sweatshirt weather is still far off for us.

    The gardens look amazing. Love this type of place. I am looking forward to the girl on the train movie, though I hope they haven’t changed it too much from the book. Have a good week and thanks – as always- for hosting.

  17. Juli

    It’s still too hot to think about sweatshirts, here. But I’m looking forward to Halloween for just that thing. 🙂 Into the Light looks creepy. I haven’t read that one. And 13 days of Halloween movies sounds like a great idea. 🙂 (Although, 13 days of Halloween reads would be more my speed). Enjoy your week!

    Those gardens are amazing, Kimba! I’m almost tempted to visit Omaha just to see them! And ooh, you got some wonderful books this week — at least they look wonderful! Enjoy the lovely weather; I know I am! It’s finally down in the low 70s; it was only in the 60s when I went to church this morning. Heavenly!

      Agreed, and this is so clever with so many trains. All of the landmarks, buildings and bridges are made from twigs, pinecones, etc..adorable.

  19. Charlie

    The gardens sound so cool! A few years back some of the summer and day camps here were big into building fairy houses. I thought that was pretty cool. The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep is exactly what I need to read! lol

  20. Wendy

    Summer is always my favorite, and it’s hard to see it end, BUT that quote makes me laugh hard, mostly because of all the truth it contains!

    OK so, I thought about grabbing The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep: A New Way of Getting Children to Sleep audio, but I saw that it was like 38+ minutes long. I get it, there is a method to get the kids to fall asleep, but my 6-year-old would just get bored. I have The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep, I got that free through work, and it worked the first two times I read it to my daughter but dang! It took FOREVER to get through. Fortunately, now that my oldest is in school, she is pretty sleepy come bed time. 😉

      It has 2 narrations- one is a male and one a female. I don’t think the acutally story is that long Lauren. The Disc says Track 1 Introduction Track 2 Instructions for the Listener Track 3 Read by Fred Sanders Track 4 Read by Kathleen McInerney. So my guess is the actual story which is only 40 pages is probably only 10-15 mins at best.

  22. Sophia Rose

    That garden sounds really neat. I get why little Sophia likes it. 🙂

    Those Katherine Cheney’s you won look good. I hadn’t heard of them. Devil Crept In looks properly spooky and Well Hung sounds hilarious.

    Oh yay, Cecy’s latest is up. I’ll definitely be contacting you. 🙂

      Good catch on the SyFy..what is weird is the link on their site to get to it, say 2016 31 Days of Halloween, but it takes you to this schedule. Boo, and I see nothing for 2016.

  23. Melanie Simmons

    Thanks so much for sharing the Halloween movie schedules. I love horror movies. DH doesn’t like them for the most part, so I’m stuck on my own watching them. I generally watch them when they get on TV or get the movies from the library. I love looking at well done model railroads. I love seeing how much effort they put into making the little villages and such. It isn’t a hobby I want, but one I love to visit.
