Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
I'm coming to you late today because I took the day to do some much needed mundane chores such as dusting, laundry, etc., #Goodtimes
Actually it felt good to be physically active and see concrete results, so much of what I do online is less "physical" and requires longer timeframes to see results. (Unlike instantly seeing the laundry basket go down, lol)
The sun came out for a bit but it is still cooler, with more rain on the way! I have hope though as the weather is supposed to become warmer starting Sunday.
I posted a bit more in April and thought I would give you the rundown, if you missed anything...
Quick Book Reviews:
It’s kind of a grey day here in central New Mexico this morning, but I’m not complaining. I am grateful that we are having a bit of rain and the temps are dropping.
It’s been a busy week already and it’s only Tuesday! Lol, I have a couple of baby showers to attend this month and a wedding (well NOT attend in person, but on Zoom), and I’m wrapping gifts for those, reading, painting, and there’s always work…
But I also found time to write up two quick book reviews for you today, both by Neil Gaiman.
Quick Book Review - Tuesday Edition:
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
We woke up to a cooler morning today, a cold front had blown through in the middle of the night. It was a pleasant surprise except for all the wind playing havoc with my new seedings. I used to watch the weather (on several apps) when I was actually leaving the house, but nowadays I enjoy the surprise, lol.
And speaking of surprises I was happily surprised with Pacifica having a 50% off sale. #score
This isn't a sponsored post, I just really like this brand and thought I would show you my mini haul.
Why I love this brand:
I have been using/buying Pacifica items from Amazon for a couple of years now and just recently started shopping from their website.
This time I purchased:
The Glow Work Energy Skin Love kit
Mini Body Butter
Coconut Power Shampoo
Pollution fighting facials masks
Coconut facial Wipes
Coconut Pro Hair Masks
As slow as the mail has become in USA over the last few months, I really didn't except to receive my order before May, but it arrived very quickly. I have been using the products and love each and every one!
All of this came to only $31.20 (including shipping in the USA)
If you are looking for a healthy and ethical beauty brand, I would highly recommend Pacifica.
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...
