Jackie's Forget Me Nots

I started off enjoying a beautiful sunny day on Friday, but then it snowed on Saturday. I hope this week we will see more sunny skies. I’ve been working out à la fitness center. I also bought a new swimsuit and a Nike sweatshirt hoodie that I love. I mostly use the treadmill in the weight room where I can run a safe 2.2 miles adjusting my speed to about a 5.2.
After that, I can’t wait to get into the hot tub for some much-needed pain relief therapy and some underwater stretching in the deep end of the pool. It feels so nice. I fell on my tailbone some years ago at a rock concert and the pain has finally taken a toll.

Fraterfest kicked off this week and I finished reading In Darkness We Must Abide Book One by Rhiannon Frater. I finished The Vampire Stories by Nancy Kilpatrick on audio. I also read a graphic novel Deadly Class.

I purchased In Darkness We Must Abide #1, Death In The Shadows #2, and Ashes in the Night #3 on my kindle for the Fraterfest Readathon!

I received a few arcs from Netgalley
Texas Hold’em by George R.R. Martin
The Witch of Willow Hall by Hester Fox

I also blogged a few posts for Blogoween
Reasons why I love Fall
There’s Something in the Water
Scary Book Recommends

As I blog mostly when I feel inspired and for fun, I can’t say exactly what I will post next because I have none scheduled. I do have some drafts though:/ However, I will probably post favourite horror movies and more Blogoween related prompts. Obviously, we will be wrapping up Fraterfest readathon on Tuesday as well.
Have a great week!

      Yes I have a few little scary looking pumpkins on my bookshelf but nothing too fancy this year. I did buy some flickering dark lights but I need to be able to read my books! lol

    The fitness centre sounds great and you remind me I’ve been lazy of late. Lots of good scary October reads, ha, I can see how you sure aren’t a contemporary reader as you commented on my blog. So many great books to suit us all.

  8. We got snow over the weekend, too. Luckily, it melted enough that I ran 3 miles and walked 1 today. Good luck with Fraterfest! I’m doing that, too.
