Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
It’s a chilly, rainy morning here in Central New Mexico. I thought we were going to beat the rain on our morning walk, but it started just as we got to about the halfway point! But all this rain equals amazing Spring flowers so I'm not complaining.
There's lots to talk about this morning, so I'm just going to dive right in with another book review.
Thursday Short Review:
Deception Point by Dan Brown
This review contains affiliate links, but I never post about anything I don't love.
Okay now I'm off to tackle the laundry and put on a pot of coffee.
Have a great day!
I'm getting a late start this morning because I slept in. It was after 9:00 before I had my first coffee. Of course, the fact that I stayed up till 2:30 chatting on WhatsApp had nothing to do with it, lol.
But regardless, it's a gorgeous day here and I'm going for a lovely, long walk this morning. But before I go run off, I thought I would knock out a few more book reviews, lol. I'm so far behind, that I really should be writing 10 at a time, lol - but we both know thats not going to happen. Today we will have to make do with two, instead.
Yesterday, while I was trolling for books on Amazon I noticed there was an Expanse novella that I hadn't read yet, so I scooped it up. Auberon came out in November 2019 and I have no idea how I missed it then? Oh yeah - I remember now, I was busy writing my book, lol.
Sunday Short Review:
Auberon (An Expanse Novella) By James S.A. Corey
If you read the The Churn novella, you were given insight into Amos Burton and the Baltimore criminals. Erich from this novella is a main character in Auberon and his story is worth catching up on. Also read my review of Book One in this series here.
Saturday Short Review II:
The Churn: An Expanse Novella (The Expanse) By James S.A. Corey
I have paid links in this post, but trust me, I only make a small fee off them and never write about anything I don't personally love.
Okay I'm off for that walk now.
Have a great Sunday!
Hi, friends! Spring is in full swing over here in our part of the world, and I'm doing a bit of Spring cleaning. I admit that I forgot/lost my password to Goodreads and am a bit late in updating my book reviews. (So be prepared for weekly reviews until I am caught up.)
I read Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse Book 1) way back in February 2019 and was hooked on the series. So before I review the entire 8 books in this series, and overload you, let's begin with book #1.
Saturday Short Review:
Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse Book 1) By James S.A. Corey
James S. A. Corey is the pen name of fantasy author Daniel Abraham, author of the critically acclaimed Long Price Quartet, and writer Ty Franck. They both live down the street from me in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I think I have seem them buying tacos, but I kept my cool and didn't fan girl out. lol.
You are still allowed to dream about your next magical destination...
Do you miss traveling? I do!
When you get stuck at home, you start appreciating everything that you can’t have. I am dreaming of being able to get out and explore the outdoors again; it’s spring after all!
These are difficult times for a lot of people, but try to make the best out of the situation you are in. Enjoy the peace and the quiet; breathe, slow down, and reflect. Read those books you added to your stack, and take it slow. We don't have to be productive every moment.
Have a snack and read... and know that soon we will be back out having adventures...
I miss the Netherlands...
My new (improved) bucket list is now about visiting more small towns in this region and exploring more vibrant cities. While we can't travel right now, we can still dream and plan.
While I think Amsterdam is a "must see" there is so much more to this region. What do you think? And what have you added to your bucket list?
Hi Travel Family!
I hope everyone is safe and comfortable as we begin April. The sun is shining and its shaping up to be a gorgeous day here in New Mexico. I know isolation can be difficult, but we will make it through April and beyond.
I have been 'nose to the grindstone', so to speak, working, writing and creating through most of the winter. I'm glad its spring, but it seems March just flew by. We have new projects taking off in April and May, (they do not require me to be 'social' other than posting or tweeting) and for that I am truly thankful.
Work for me hasn't changed all that much. Working from home (or a holiday house) has been my gig for close to 15 years now. (I am as amazed as you are, as I write that!) But traveling has changed greatly...well you know. But it won't always be like this and this gives us time to dream up new adventures and study distant lands we want to explore. Maybe April will be a good month to update your travel bucket list? One of my friends in Scotland shared a nice list of places he wanted to visit and I admit to being impressed...I had never even heard of most of these places! Google here we come!
But seriously, I know it's a rough time right now. But we can get through this. You are not alone. We are all in this together and together we make it through.
Welcome to my (I used to travel) blog, my healthy Vegan lifestyle blog and my life! It's a lot, but it's my passions and I just love to write about it. Here I share tips, stories and photos from my adventures and life. This is the place where people can find daily inspiration to travel and motivation to live healthier lives and laugh a bit too!
