No Wednesday Reads and I Cooked!

I’m reading a long book, so of course I’m now behind in my reading goal. Having a release kind of took some of my time, too. So did sending out my newsletter. And then there’s revising Ghostly Interlude (yep, still working on that). Sometimes reading does have to take a back seat, regardless of how much I’m enjoying the story.

And yeah, I’m enjoying it very much. Makes walking on the treadmill much less of a chore.

Hopefully I’ll have that book to report next week!

Yesterday I managed to remember to cook dinner. Almost messed up again, though.

I was smart (or so I thought). I set my alarm for 10am. Problem was, I wasn’t HOME when my alarm went off! Figured, huh?

But luckily I wasn’t far and I managed to get the chicken into the crock pot only 20 minutes late and dinner was yummy! Even Hubby was able to eat it all. That made me extra happy.

Penguins play again tonight. Monday’s game was stressful, but they won it in overtime. Whew! Hopefully they continue playing well, especially now that they’re in Tampa.

So… What are you reading now? I know I ask this a lot, but I figure you’re not still reading the same book. And if you are, how come? J

Happy Reading!

It's funny how stressful something we do for enjoyment (watch sports) can be--I probably lost pounds when the Bruins went to the final in 2011 and 2013!

Currently re-reading "All The Kings Men" by Robert Penn Warren. That's a long one, and dense, but good.

Slow cooked chicken sounds like a great idea. I'm glad your hubby was able to chew and swallow. I'm sure it feels like a long road to him.

Jeff - Oh yes! Watching hockey is WAY stressful. Unfortunately, I'm not losing any weight over watching. Darn!!!

Maria - Yeah, Hubby gets frustrated. Then I have to point out where he was just one week ago and he agrees he's getting better. He's certainly not taking an hour to eat now, so there's that.

Gotta love the crock pot!

I'm reading a little novella called "A Vampire Wedding" at the moment and really enjoying it... :D

Jennette - I do love the crock pot. So easy. And I'm glad you're enjoying my story. **big grin**

I read while on the treadmill, too! And yeah, long books can REALLY cut into your monthly book count.

Stephanie - Sometimes I wish Goodreads reading challenge was in pages read instead of # of books. Then I wouldn't feel so far behind.
