It was a pretty good day- amazing what a good book can do.

Teaching:

I sat on my couch this morning and seriously thought about taking the day off so I could read my book, but I didn’t and work wasn’t that bad, though I did sneak in reading every break I could!

We got through our self reflection for the report card, drained compliment rockets and did a kindness sunshine with our big buddies.

Not a lot accomplished, but no one got punched for a change so I’m going to count it as a success.

Family:

I quickly headed home after work to go pay my utilities bill and then went to pick Gus up at school. We went for ice cream and then looked for material for a new blanket for him. Finally we also hit Wendy’s for dinner. I do love my time with Gus!!!

Reading:

Last night I started a new book, not expecting a lot because I’ve been in a reading slump lately. I read: The Two Date Rule by Tawna Fenske.

It was awesome! This is the story of Grady, a bush firefighter and Willa, a web designer. Both have a lot of baggage, like every adult does, but somehow they find their way to each other.

I loved how complex these characters were. Multi dimensional and interesting! Willa is battling demons from her past and Grady is scared of the future. Their problems seemed realistic and how they dealt with them was too.

The pace was great- moves along without a lot of head games and it had more showing than telling which I appreciate.

There were so many swooney moments, but my two favourites were the excuses he kept coming up with about why their meetings weren’t a date and the calendar he created.

This was a great book that I just couldn’t put down.

Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for the free ARC in exchange for an honest opinion.

Well I’m going to go organize some knitting patterns and then head for bed.

Have fun!

  1. I’m glad you really enjoyed the book, AJ.
    Are you going to post pictures of the blanket after you finish making it?
    Yesterday was the first day I sewed anything on my sewing machine since my cat died. It’s been over three months. He used to sit under my feet whenever I was sewing and I miss him being there so I hadn’t been able to sew. 😔 I made something small, a fabric bookmark, but at least it was something. 🤷🏽‍♀️
    Enjoy your day. 😊

    1. Oh I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your cat. They leave a big hole in our lives! I’m glad to hear you took a step back to something you love doing.
      Yes if I find material to make the quilt I will post what I do
