I was off today for several appointments so not my typical week day.
I managed to sleep in until 8am today and that is very rare! I have to say I enjoyed my night after I got home from my date last night though. I snuggled into bed and watched a DVD on the TV in there. I’m so glad my mom convinced me to put the tv in my bedroom and not get rid of it. It felt so decadent to be able to do this! I still went to sleep at 9:30 though, so got lots of sleep!
I did great at adulting today though. I walked over to my second appointment of the day and managed to mail my ballot and drop off my prescription for filling. On the way back I remembered to stop in and see if the local store had any good coffee travel mugs and picked up my prescription. I also tried to buy the ingredients to make vegan cream of mushroom soup, but the store didn’t have what I needed:(
I would definitely call this trip a success!
After a lovely nap this afternoon, I went out to complete the Squad Runner mission. I once again was running in horrible rain. I think I’m developing webbed feet from running in torrential rain so often! The run went well and was once again very consistent in timing. I just wish that timing would get a little faster!
I found a three colour striped scarf and have started on that. So far I am super happy with how it’s looking as it’s in pinks and cream and is very soft! Hopefully I get it done by November 30th and hopefully it uses up all three skeins!
I finally managed to finish my current book, The Rancher’s Redemption by Melinda Curtis
This is the third story in the series and follows Ben Blackwell, the lawyer. He returns home to battle Rachel Thompson over water rights and perhaps put his past to rest.
I have to admit I had a difficult time getting into this book as the start seemed to be quite depressing to me.
About 2/3 of the way though it grabbed me. I began to like both of the main characters as they had their flaws and their redeeming features.
I also liked the family dynamic on both sides. These families are both very realistic.
I did find the ending a little short. I really thought it was resolved a little too easily, however, the epilogue about Big E will have me reaching for the next book.
Thank you to the author and publisher for the free copy in exchange for a review.
Another date tonight, and hopefully the last of the set ups. Once again I really didn’t want to be going, I’d rather be watching a movie in bed on this rainy, dark night!
It definitely went better than last night. He talked a lot, but I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt that maybe he was as nervous as I was. He can have a second date if he wants one, so we shall see.
Well that’s it for me!
