It was a lovely day filled with some of my favourite things.

Reading:

I have to admit I laid in bed this morning, but did eventually get up and make it to my book on the couch.

I finished The Summer of Sunshine and Margot by Susan Mallery today. Thank you to Susan Mallery, Harlequin and NetGalley for the free ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This book follows fraternal twin sisters Margot and Sunshine as they both attempt to turn over a new leaf in their life. Margot is getting over a mistake of a man and going to concentrate on her work which is an bold actress who needs to learn to fit into the political world. Sunshine is going to go back to college and quite running off with the wrong men. She’s also going to be the best nanny she can be. Of course, things never go as planned.

I liked how the book constantly went back and forth between the two characters and there was lots of interaction between them. They had a fun and great relationship and it added to the book!

I also liked how the relationships surprised me. Margot’s was the one I expected to be tame, however it developed much quicker than Sunshine’s.

This book had great pacing in that it didn’t feel rushed and there was enough time passing to make the relationships believable.

I enjoyed the book and think people who enjoy reading about second chances and overcoming your own mental obstacles would enjoy this book.

Exercise:

Well I’ve sat in the couch for two weeks and my cold still hasn’t gone away. I decided that f not exercising wasn’t making me healthy, I might as well exercise and be happy. My running buddy Sarah wanted to do a lap of Buntzen Lake for her birthday so today we headed out. It was a gorgeous day and the run definitely improved my mood! We didn’t go fast, but for the first time in my life I ran the loop. Usually I just go to North beach and back.

This picture is from a cloudier day. It was gorgeous today, but none of my pictures turned out well.

Knitting:

I thought I was healthy enough to tackle my April Tank again, but I guess I’m not quit healthy enough to do lace. I made it to row 15 before I screwed up, but unfortunately I didn’t have a life line in. I’ve taken the row out, but will have to look tomorrow to see if I need to take more rows out. I’m supposed to be done by tomorrow:(

Well that’s it for me!

Have fun!

  1. glad to hear you are resting and exercising. I need to get my butt moving again. Sorry to hear that your knitting wasn’t working out, I hope you can figure out a way to make it work. Enjoy your weekend

    1. It felt really good to get out running again! Hopefully I can do a short run each day this weekend to get some mileage in:)

      1. getting out and moving even if it isn’t the rate/pace you’d like will probably boost your mood and therefore help you feel better too

  2. That book sounds great! Thanks for the review!

    Ok the colds are sooo bad this season- they linger and linger. Are you feeling better now? I’m glad that run helped though!

    Hope you had a great weekend, AJ!

    1. Happy to help! This cold seems to be hanging on forever. I’m going to try a decongestant today and see if that helps!
      Happy Easter!
