Hooray for Sunday mornings!
I slept okay last night in my old bed. It’s always weird going back and sleeping where you grew up (I didn’t grow up in this house but had the same bed). Dexter couldn’t figure out what was going on and was roaming for most of the night and then the 18 year old brother gets home in the middle of the night….you get the picture. I woke up relatively early for a Sunday and came downstairs to see what in the world was in the kitchen for breakfast! My family are all very healthy eaters, luckily, and I found some frozen Kashi Heart to Heart waffles along with copious amounts of fresh fruit! So, I toasted two waffles, put about a tbsp of smart balance peanut butter (along with a dab of maple syrup) in between, and had a fresh fruit platter with kiwi and mango as well. I haven’t had mango in forever and it was sooo yummy and fresh!
I also had a small cup of my favorite freshly squeezed oj as soon as I came downstairs and was scrounging for breakfast but I drank it really fast and forgot to take a picture!
I left IDOF at home this weekend because I wanted to find another book that I could really “sink my teeth into”. In Defense is good, but not something to stay up for hours in suspense over, you know? My mom had just finished this and gave it to me last night to read:
At first I was adamant. I put Danielle Steel in the same category as floosy romance novels. But…I have enjoyed maybe two of her books. Granny Dan was absolutely amazing. In general though, I think she is very streamlined and not that good of a writer (I’ll just be blunt). But, she certainly knows how to write. Knowing how to catch your audience and actually being considered an amazing writer are two very different things. She knows how to reel in her readers and catch them with suspense but I think her sentences are quite choppy and there’s sooooo much unnecessary fluff. That being said, I will now eat my words and tell you I could not put this book down last night! It was very very catchy and got me intrigued by the first page. A great read for a vacation or just when you need an escape. I’ll probably finish it today though because its such an easy read.
My mom recently bought a treadmill and put it upstairs so I think I will get a good cardio workout on that later and maybe do some abs on the huge ball I saw up there as well. Today I’m just relaxing, reading and probably going out to search for another memory card for my camera (more videos!!).
