    I'm up to 20 for the year on goodreads. I hope to work on and get finished Soleri by Michael Johnston today. Tor requested a review. It comes out June 6th, if I remember right.

    1. IQ84 by Haruki Murakami


    I put a review on goodreads, probably not as in depth as it should have been. This is a very long book and it took a long time to read. It's one I set aside several times, but was able to pick it back up and know right where I was in the story. It flashes between a man and a woman who have known each other as children. A lot of the story is fantasy, yet it feels real as you're reading it. I can see why Murakami is a well regarded author. I like long books, fortunately. I kept waiting for the man and woman to find each other, and that was part of the suspense in the story. Definitely a four out of five star read.

    1. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith


    This is one of my all time favorite books. My mom found an old hardcover of it for 10 cents all those years ago when I was about 8 or 9. I loved it then and I still have that book. I've probably read it ten times by now and still take it out every so often for a reread. Francie's love for her dad reminds me of my love for my own and it's easy to relate to Francie. Maybe that's part of it. Having the book also reminds me of my mom, since she often bought me books. I think it was because it kept me out of her hair, but that doesn't make the act any less for me.

    I went in for a workout yesterday and plan another one this morning. If I can do this every day I'm not working, it'll help make progress. I can't always do it on the weekends with Harlan home. My fitbit helps me figure out where I'm at in the workout. Very helpful little piece of tech.

    I went into Anytime this morning and got in a workout before heading off to do grocery shopping. My fitbit should be pleased with me today.

    I have a membership at Anytime Fitness and their new app links to my fitbit so I think it's time to get serious about this.

    This is something I've wanted to do since the series was finished. If I put it as a goal, maybe I'll have the incentive to do it!

      @diamondlightfoot Yeah I can relate, I first started reading the Wheel of Time series in Middle School under the delusion that it was only a double trilogy. I got as far as Lord of Chaos before which there was a long enough gap to the next book coming out that I gave up.

        @celticchristian I have all the books, I think in a box in my utility room (I have four filled bookcases and need to thin those out). One of these days I'm going to get started on this. I remember when I read the first book. I sat there all day and almost finished it. My husband has listened to all the audiobooks. I think that puts him ahead of me. lol

    We're going to do a shorter travel this weekend. Harlan's birthday is on Monday and I took the weekend off so we could go to Oklahoma and play at Winstar. The best thing is that we'll be away from everything and we'll be spending time together. I'll have his undivided attention. 🙂

    I'm not sure how it decides the orders of these things, but traveling is one of my favorite things in the world and I try to do it, even if it's only locally, every year.

      @diamondlightfoot What if I could tell you, you could accomplish your dreams by earning an income from watching adds on your phone? Would you do it?

      @diamondlightfoot Travel is a passion, a wander drug. I've been to 32 different countries (many repeats) and can't stop, never stop. The world is a gift. We must see and experience all we can. Boat, plane, car, or train, whatever gets you there. Enjoy.

    1. Working makes me happy. Bea came in and I got to help her with something. Since I'm working alone most of the time, I don't get to see many of my co-workers.

    2. A small birthday season is upon the family. It's amazing how many birthdays we have this week. One of them (today, actually) is my eldest son, a joy to my heart and a wonderfully good man.

    3. My family in general. I am so blessed with good people! I don't know what more anyone could ask.

    1. A cool and humid morning. It wants to rain, but it stayed away. I guess that's good for the fleas outside. Rain seems to get them excited. I hope they die off soon. Still, nice to have it a little cooler.

    2. One of those days with lots to do and no real ambition to get it all done. Where does ambition sleep? I'd like to find it some days. The dishes got done. The bed got made.

    3. Peanut butter. Where would I be without peanut butter?

    1. Catching up on Dr Who. The season finale is coming! It's kinda sad. I'll miss Peter Capaldi when he leaves. Course, I miss them all when they leave.

    2. Games. I worked on Elvenar and Township and Monopoly. Fun waste of time.

    3. Lyric is beginning to feel like her old self after her flea pill.

    1. A day spent with Harlan is always a good day. He couldn't mow the lawn because of the rain so he was stuck inside.

    2. Watching John Wick for when we get John Wick 2 from Netflix.

    3. Nachos! I haven't made those for supper for ages!

    1. A good trip to the vet. Lyric has gained a little since they last saw her. She's all of nine pounds now!

    2. I've discovered a series on Netflix that I really like: The 100.

    3. Looking at birthday cards for my incredibly awesome son. It's hard to find one that says everything, so you have to make time to go through them all.
