It is my 40th birthday today!
These are all the books I got as gifts!
This book is adorable. I mean that in the best possible way. It is a fantasy story because it has some magic, but it is also about unconventional family and love and trust and hope and it is just adorable.
I'm so bored! I've been trying to read and workout and keep somewhat of a normal schedule.
I work at a school and we are closed at least until April 28th. I have a senior who is so mad to be home and so worried about graduation.
One day at a time, right?
I've actually been reading lots of books this month. Which is kind of weird because I'm busier than usual. So I'm not sure how that math works out exactly, but I'll just go with it.
The last few years of goodreads reading challenges. I'm a fast reader but I don't always have the time. Also, I tend to read long books. I set my number at 75 for this year.
And perfect timing because I just finished a different book today.
Found out yesterday that I have a sinus infection AND an ear infection. Thankfully after my bronchitis cleared up 🙄. I got some antibiotics so fingers crossed I'm feeling better quick.
I came to the Oregon coast to convalesce. But since I'm not a fancy lady who can live in a hotel for 6 months, I stayed a couple days. I don't really feel any better physically. But will you look at that view?!
Today was my birthday!
Friends took me out to lunch, husband took me out to dinner. People bought me flowers and mugs and I bought myself some books. It was a really fun day.
I got a free add-on because my birthday is in July!
Perfect book for camping?
This is the view from my driveway. I live across the street from a park which has a playground and a large grassy area behind it. We have kids and dogs so it's convenient. And pretty.
I was very tempted to buy all of these socks. But then I remembered my sock drawer is currently overflowing 🤷♀️
My husband and I drove to Portland for a concert last night (Jenny Lewis-it was amazing). We got there early so we could go to Powell's. What a great day!
We finished the half marathon!! I'm the one not wearing a hat.
Now I will have time for reading again!
Not necessarily book related but the reason I haven't been posting much: my friend likes to do half marathons but hurt her knee so can't run. She asked me if I would walk it with her and I said yes. It's on Sunday! I've been spending all my time walking (with a friend so no audio books either). I'm starting to freak out a little.
Check out my new chunky #chunkster.
Also I'm watching Game of Thrones and I'm terrified they are making me remember how much I like certain characters just in time for them to die 😱😳😭 or maybe they will all live happily ever after?
@Readergrrl thank you so much! I have not read any of these books but they are all totally books I would (and will) read. I also love the socks, bookmark, and journal. P.S. I think we got each other one thing that is the same!
@Avanders thank you for putting this together! It was a blast.
These quizzes crack me up! Nikolai has too many people trying to kill him. I need less excitement in my life 😂
First book of the road trip done!
I got this book specifically because I have a teenager who has mental health issues. I wanted to read it first to see if would be something he would like. I read some reviews that said it's boring but I did not think that at all. I really enjoyed the story.
