I finally found a use for that skinny pocket on the side of my lunchbox!

My morning tea reminds us that “you don‘t need love, you are the love” Agree? disagree? I do agree that we are love but...we also need love. Because if you don‘t know Love, how can you be love? #earlymorningdeepthoughts #yogitea #24b4Monday #MrBook1inaMillion @MrBook @Andrew65
Greetings #readathon ers! It‘s now about 12 hours since I left the house this morning to go to work. I‘m home, in my pjs, and am now ready to work on #24B4Monday and #MrBookOneinaMillion Happy Introverting to all! @Andrew65 @MrBook
I‘m overly optimistic because I‘m also doing #NaNoWriMo and stuff but here‘s what I‘m hoping to tackle for #MrBook1inaMillion #LitsyPartyofOne #24B4Monday #readathon. Not sure on the snacks either because #diet but I don‘t work this weekend so after work tomorrow, I‘m gonna start getting my read on! It‘s been awhile since I‘ve participated so I‘m looking forward to it!
I finished this novella this morning. It was a good introduction to her new series—I devoured her Marked Men, Saints of Denver, and Welcome to The Point series‘. Pretty sure I‘m going to love this one too. #saveahorse @CoverToCoverGirl
Since I‘ve been so out of it lately and I‘ve been missing my Littens, I‘m going to jump on the #WeeklyForecast. I‘m actually about halfway through both Cowboy wolf trouble and Unbroken by Jay Crownover. the Greatest You will take me awhile because I‘m an extremely slow NF reader but with work and #NaNoWriMo, I foresee a few busy weeks! @Cinfhen this is a great idea!
Not too sure about the new nano site and I hate the fact that all my writing buddies didn‘t transfer from the old site but 3 says in and I‘m finally getting around to doing some writing. Anyway I‘m cocoreads70 there if anyone is participating this time around. Wishing I‘d have made a list of Litten WriMos....
Yeah yeah, it too early for Christmas books. But we‘re supposed to get a lovely rain/snow mix tonight, I have a cold and I‘m working tonight and missing Halloween. Having said that, I‘m actually DNF‘ing this book. 4 chapters in and I can‘t stand the heroine. I‘m pretty sure the whole story is her undergoing a transformation but clearly that‘s not what I‘m in the mood for. Also I‘ve been a bit MIA lately and I wanted to check in. 😁👍
Celebrated my birthday a day late with my daughters. Here‘s my gift from them with an unintentional theme. They shopped separately and found out they were both buying me sugar skulls stuff. They know me so well. 🤣🤣
Thank you to everyone for the happy birthdays! I had a good weekend but yesterday‘s actual birthday was pretty craptastic. I wound up working a 12-ish hour shift (because our closing tech had a medical moment—but I think she‘s going to be fine, just with a few extra days off). So by the time I got home I ate my pizza, popped a Motrin, took a shower and went to bed. But hey, I got these great finds over the weekend so it‘s a win for me!
@CoverToCoverGirl @theresidentromantic @Daughter-of-words @LaurenReads look what was in my email! I‘m so excited!!! Pretty sure my weekend reading is all set. Yes, I know it‘s 4 am-my old lady bladder woke me up. Imma trying to go back to sleep for a couple more hours but I‘m too excited!
#BBRC #AtoZPictureBooks I really enjoyed this one-the subject, of course. When you have a book, you‘re never alone and I liked how it mentioned other types of reading as well—Braille, signing. Nothing earth shattering but the illustrations were lovely and I liked seeing all the places the kids were reading. @LibrarianRyan
Had my second cataract surgery yesterday. It went well, that eye is still blurry but the other eye is pretty much all healed. Since I don‘t go back to work until Friday and I can‘t bend or lift anything until then, I‘m just going to chill and work on my book group book. It‘s really good so far.
#BFCr3 final check in. I can‘t believe it‘s over. I keep losing and gaining the same 6 pounds. But that‘s ok. I‘ve built some strength and stamina, I‘ve got a habit going, and I miss it if I miss more than a day or two. This is yesterday‘s sweaty selfie after my workout. Something I NEVER would have posted before. Oh this week I got 6/5 workouts in and read 7 books for a 36/40 total.
#BFCr3 @wanderinglynn Thanks for leading us through 3 rounds of #BFC It could not have been easy to get us all organized and motivated but you did a great job. I know I was less active this time around but life happened. But even though I keep gaining and losing the same 6 pounds, the habit has been built and I‘m to the point where I miss it if I miss more than a day or two. Thanks for all your work! #TeamLetsDoThis
Finished this on my lunch break. Holy hell does she have some great covers. The story line was pretty good too. 🤣🤣😍😉 #lawenforcementmcromance
So freakin cute, you guys! Haley and Martin Nathaniel Monroe II (there‘s 2 of them-long story) get to know each other by texting but it becomes clear to Martin that Haley doesn‘t have a clue which one she‘s talking to. There‘s a lot of mishaps relating to the 2 Martin‘s and it‘s just a really fun take on the epistolary novel. And it‘s my first book for #BBRC @LibrarianRyan #teenangst #newin2019/2020 #BFCr3 (31/40) @wanderinglynn
Week 5 wrap up—I can‘t believe it‘s almost over for #BFCr3 ! It was a hectic week but I managed to workout 3/5 times. I did read 7 books this week though bringing my total to 29/40. Next week will hopefully be better workout wise-I‘m on almost all early shifts and cardio today kicked my butt making me realize how easy it is to lose the habit and stamina I‘ve built. @wanderinglynn
#BFCr3 check in since I had eye surgery earlier in the week I only worked out 2 days (last Sunday and today) but I read a total of 7 books this week bringing my overall total to 22/30. Went to a baseball game tonight. We have the cubs farm team here and one of our pharmacists arranged an outing for us. Cubs lost btw, but the people watching was spectacular and a good time was had by all. 😁 plus there were fireworks! @wanderinglynn
#bfcr3 (19/30) not much fitness going on here as I had my left eye cataract surgery yesterday. It went pretty well, things are still blurry and it feels like I‘ve got an eyelash in it but I think when it‘s fully healed and the other eye is done and healed that it‘s going to be a life changer. Anyway-this book is a reread but I still enjoyed it. @wanderinglynn
My treasures from the mall yesterday. Going back again in a little bit. I‘m going to try to restrain myself. No promises. 🤣🤣🤣❤️ 📚
#BFCr3 And that‘s a wrap for week 3. 4/5 workouts but lots of steps at work. 6 books for this week (because they‘re short). Next week will likely be dismal because I‘m having my left eye cataract done on Tuesday which means very few workouts. Not sure how reading will go. I am looking forward to better vision though. #TeamLetsDoThis @julesG @britt_brooke @imabusybee @LibrarianJen @Reecaspieces @jb72 @Eeyore031370 @CaroPi @Moony @wanderinglynn
When you come home to exciting bookmark mail from one of your favorite authors....I‘ve got her books on kindle but I feel I need to start ordering in paperback too. Lol. Seriously, it‘s been a super busy day. Work was crazy enough that my lunch was delivered at 12:15 and I didn‘t even really start it until 1:30, finished it around 3. Came home, when to the mall with my kids and now am ready to drop! Happy Saturday!
Book 13/30 for #bfcr3 and it‘s so good, but be prepared with book 2 handy as it ends on a cliffhanger. One, which I have to wait for since book group is Sunday and I haven‘t read that book yet. But the next one, Written With You, is my next priority. 😁@wanderinglynn
Finally getting to my #bfcr3 week 2 wrap up. Exercise wise, it was a rough start to my week but I managed 4/5 workouts (by doubling up one day), had 2 writing sessions, and read 5 books bringing my total up to 9/30. @wanderinglynn #TeamLetsDoThis @julesG @britt_brooke @imabusybee @LibrarianJen @Reecaspieces @jb72 @Eeyore031370 @CaroPi @Moony
My first Beverly Jenkins book but it totally won‘t be my last. I enjoyed her attention to the history, both of New Orleans as well as the time period of reconstruction. I admit, I don‘t know a whole lot about it from either side but this felt very real to me. I also really liked that it was Valinda who didn‘t know what Love was and didn‘t want to marry, and although Drake was in love from the start, he gave her time. 👇
Finally Z and Lilly get their HEA. Yeah, this is book 14 in a series, and the 4th in this particular story arc but I‘ve discovered LOKI is my favorite MC series. But...they def need to be read in order. I still love the Hangmen and the Last Riders but this series has my heart. @CoverToCoverGirl @theresidentromantic
#bfcr3 Week 1 off to a decent start. I exercised (outside of work) 4 days and read 4 books. Stayed pretty positive (by staying off the scale) and occasionally made some good food choices. Heck I even ate a salad at lunch today and only half my calzone. 🤣🤣🤣 @wanderinglynn
I know it‘s not #socksunday but my feet are cold. Are these not perfection?
#bookhaul post 4/4. Ok, these were my non book purchases but I can‘t make a trip without a good pair of Blue Q socks. The magnets are perfection and the soap is fantastic. I mean, I bought it for the label but it smells great as well!
Post 2/4. Some mystery, some historical fiction, plus Savages—violence, drugs... #lowryssturgis
I may have taken today as a rest day on working out but jeez, look at what I did at work today! Also I finished a book this morning (I‘d Rather Not by Lani Lynn Vale). #bfcr3 @wanderinglynn #TeamLetsDoThis @julesG @britt_brooke @imabusybee @LibrarianJen @Reecaspieces @jb72 @Eeyore031370 @Moony
