Another day in quiet paradise.
Started with a long walk with my mom, Anne and Moiya. It was going great until Anne mentioned they are leaving tomorrow:( Awww really? I don’t want to lose the great company, but they have to get in with their adventures too. The walk this morning was interesting as we did the same route as last night. Last night the road seemed perfect- quiet, flat, shady, etc. Today- there was so much traffic!!!! Ugh this will have to be my evening walking place I guess!
I also got a workout in while my parents went to the store. I managed to do more abs so while my cardio may suffer, maybe my abs will improve on this trip. Today, I did: 10 crunches, 20 reverse curls, 30 heel reaches, 40 leg drops, 50 bicycles, 60 v ups, 70 dead bugs, 80 toe touches, 90 static crunch with scissor legs, 100 mountain climbers, 50 squats, 50 plow squats, 1:45 plank.
As I write this, I realize I had screenshot a workout to do today. Ugh I’ll have to do it tomorrow.
I got a walk in tonight too. The same route as last night and this morning, but the road was back to being quiet. I thankfully have another week to explore different routes:)
I have spent a bit of time on my afghan today and am halfway through the first pattern now. It was rather warm knitting for 33 degree weather though:(
Another day, another book. I finished my next NetGalley book today.
The Breakup by Erin McCarthy is the sequel in the Jordan Brothers series. It tells the story of Christian, a local bartender with a complicated family situation, and Bella, a social worker about to be married.
I thought I would find Bella annoying, but her character comes across as sweet and innocent. I also thought Christian would be a jerk, but he isn’t. He takes fatherhood seriously, treats Bella with respect and gives her what she needs whether she realizes it or not.
The pacing is excellent in this book. The story is not insta-love, though there is some insta-lust involved. I liked how they got to know each other and that brought them closer. I have to admit, I could have kicked Christian at the end for messing up, but it all worked out with a lovely HEA. I especially liked how we got an epilogue that tidily finished up both books in the series!
Thank you to NetGalley, the author and publisher for the free copy in exchange for an honest review.
Other than a nap, dangling my feet in the water, and way too much snacking, that was my day:)
