Well I think of this as my first day of holidays as it’s the first day I would have had to go to work. It was a nice day:)
I have definitely gotten into the mode of sleeping more and lounging in bed a bit in the morning. I did finally get myself out for a 7.6km walk though. It was nice in the trails. I had actually planned to go further and for that reason went the reverse of what I usually do. For some reason, I find it more difficult to go further one way than the other. The plan was thwarted however when I got by the mill and looked ahead to see the two coyotes hanging out. I turned around and figured 7.6 was just as good as 8+🤣
I had switched my run and walk today as Dennis had said he wanted to run tonight. We met up at Hyde Creek again and did the first 1.5km together. I then did six speed repeats of 500m and then just ran back and forth waiting for him to return. I couldn’t believe how tired my legs were just from so few speed repeats!!! I was happy I had stayed there when I heard how hot it was the rest of the way. I have to say I was pleased with myself when we were running back. I had it in my head that I only had to push my tired legs until I hit the start of the fence, but instead of going down to a walk, I just slowed my pace:)
I did a little bit of P90X Yoga X when I got home, but I think the 1.5 hour time at the bottom scared me off. Maybe I will do better tomorrow:)
I did get my hour done on the rug today:) Hopefully this will lead to me getting ahead:)
I also managed to get a photo of the simple preemie cap I made yesterday.
I will be spending some time tonight watching a Hallmark movie and knitting something I have knit before (another class requirement for HPKCHC). Mom if you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them. I am trying to get a couple of classes done so then I can work on a sweater for me:)
A few days ago I panicked when I realized I had two NetGalley books that needed to be reviewed by July 10th. Bring me, I sat down and figured out I would give each five days and then I determined how much I had to read each day to finish in that time. Yes I know my nerdy side is showing:)
Well the first book is, How to Keep a Secret by Sarah Morgan. I suppose the fact I finished two days ahead of schedule should give you a clue how good this book is.
Wow! When I started this book it was very quickly obvious that it was different from the other Sarah Morgan books I have enjoyed. I wasn’t sure that I would enjoy this new direction she was taking.
This is the story of the Stewart women- and how one summer sees everything in their lives change.
I have to say that this book gives you all the feels- you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll gasp and you’ll sigh:)
I loved how the people and the situations were realistic and interesting. It wasn’t one drama to another, but just life during big changes.
There isn’t just one secret, but several and I didn’t see them coming! It was great to be surprised!
The pacing of the book was great! There were no instantaneous situations, but it didn’t drag either.
I also liked how the author evenly split the book between the four Stewart women.
If you love family, sisterhood or just want an excellent read, this book should be on your TBR.
Thank you to NetGalley and the author and publisher for the free copy in exchange for an honest review.
I have watched All For Love today. I enjoyed Scott Bacic in this movie:). Now I’m starting on The Perfect Bride so I can watch the sequel:). I have to admit, the lead lady’s hair flapping around when exercising drives me crazy!
Have a great night!
