Hi Blogger Friends,
Well firstly, I am a day late with my update, I was too tired yesterday to sort it all out, but here it is now.
52 Weeks - 52 Things Week 6
I still have not purchased any books (6/52)
From the books I was reading I abandoned Gone Girl for the time being, I just could not get into it and it was a library loan that did not have long left on its issue, so I will probably try this one again later in the year.
I finished reading A Light Between Oceans (2/52) and continued reading Virgin Widow.
I also finished reading the Non Fiction book the 5:2 Diet (3/12). I will not be following this diet but it was an interesting read.
I continued listening to Dragonfly in Amber as my audio book. As it is very long I will probably be listening to it for a few weeks yet.
In the last week I have started reading three books. Firstly A Room Full of Bones by Elly Griffiths. This is the fourth book in a series about a forensic archaeologist called Ruth Galloway. They are crime novels and I have read the previous three which I enjoyed, so I am hopeful I will enjoy this one too.
I also started the first book in a trilogy of young adult novels called Switched by Amanda Hocking. This book I purchased last year because I liked the cover art. Well so far I am enjoying it and comparing to the only other series of young adult books I have read that would be Twilight, at least I am able to engage with the main character I really did not care for Bella in Twilight, whereas Wendy so far hasn't annoyed me.
Finally I have started one of my Kindle freebie downloads and this one is called Ravenscraig by Sandi Krawchenko Altner.
I have continued to read the Bible every day (6/52)
Another week where I have not managed to achieve any of my challenges. I also stated last week that I was going Facebook free from the 12th August, well it will actually be from 1st September until 1st November as I have a few things I am involved with on Facebook and need to see them through before I can disappear for a couple of months.
Still have not added to my Cross Stitch stash - (6/52)
No Magazines purchased (6/52)
Did 3 Granny Squares (in Stitching Update)
Vegetarian day was Friday (5/52)
Well this challenge seems non existent. I did manage an hour in the garden this week end mowing and just tidying up, but my plan to actually make something of my garden isn't happening as yet.
I lost 6.2lbs in the last week, so I am really quite pleased with that, a little closer to my first target weight of 167lbs.
No Chocolate (6/52)
8 Glasses of Water per day (6/52)
My nails are still not bitten (6/52)
I have journaled every day (6/52)
I have decluttered my stash and now have sorted out what I am going to sell and what I will give away or dump.
I have kept Loubie's Lot up to date with at least a weekly post, I think this is the third in the last week (6/52)
I finished my final card in the FWC Card Exchange, below is the result
Bye for now
