The First Morning

The way the grass was this morning.

there was a slight change of plans. I went home when I got off work last night and was telling my husband about my knew plan for self improvement, and he had to be a buzz kill. He pointed out that I was lucky enough to be off tomorrow. If I got up at 5 I would just be in everyone’s way :(.

I got up at 8. I had cake for breakfast. I did skip the glass of water since I won’t drink out of the tap because it is city water, The bed got made and I started a load of laundry. So I got off to a good start.

As far as how I feel; I can say I don’t feel sluggish or tired. I actually feel like doing stuff.I am not tired and I think I might actually finish my to-do list

Sadly I can’t say the same for Molly Pollock. She seems to be having major doggy anxiety over the multiple storms we keep having here on the Savannah Coast.

My First Read-A-Thon

On Friday I had the pleasure of participating in my very first Read-a-thon. One of the groups on Goodreads that I am a member of hosted the event. It began at 12:00 AM on Friday January 26 and ended  Sunday January 28th at 11:59 PM.

Our goal was to collectively read 20,000 pages over the weekend. At this moment I do not know if we reached our goal or not, but I think we did pretty great.

I read Beautiful Chaos on Friday and Saturday. It’s a book I have been trying to finish for weeks, and thanks to the read-a-thon I did. Once I finished Beautiful Chaos I began reading Stephen King’s Sleeping Beauties. ( I am beginning to see an accidental pattern here).

If you have not done a Read-a-thon before I recommend trying it. It made me feel united with readers from all over as we tried to reach a common goal. In a world separated by so much it is a great and rewarding way to come together. Reading brings people together.
