#IMWAYR ~ 10/19/20

Happy Monday! I hope all of y’alls weeks are off to a good start. Things have been hectic here, but moving along. My uncle and my FIL were both released from the hospital this week. After seeing how my uncle has struggled to heal because of his diabetes, my mom has been motivated to start eating better as she is borderline diabetic. So, I spent a lot of the weekend educating her on different foods and making recipes for us to share. I already eat whole foods/gluten free/sugar free, and the rest of my family doesn’t. That means instead of me making a couple meals for myself and making them last through the week, I’m now getting double the options. We’re just dividing all our food between each other. Plus we’re preparing the foods together, so less work. I’m also making bigger quantities, so I can start sharing with my FIL, who is also diabetic and has been eating horribly. We made some cranberry cheesecake bars (5 carbs) and some chocolate bark with pecans & almonds (1 carb), so she’ll have something sweet to nibble on here and there. She was thrilled that she can still indulge in something like that – in moderation of course. Now onto books ~

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at The Book Date. Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.

WHAT I READ LAST WEEK

(Since WWW)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

WHAT I’M READING NOW

I am very close to finishing both Little Bookshop of Murder and The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.

WHAT I’M READING NEXT 

These are just some of the options, of course. I know I want to start Crave today. I had really hoped to be reading The Roommate, but my hold was up, so now I’m waiting on another hold. Hopefully there won’t be any more major interruptions…yeah I doubt that. My hubs is taking his father to meet with the oncologist tomorrow, so we’ll at least have a better idea of what’s in store for us. He’s been healing nicely, though, from having the brain tumor removed. He’s able to walk again. He couldn’t stand up well prior to the surgery.

I’m looking forward to seeing what y’all are reading this week!

Happy Reading

Alison

  1. I’m sorry your family is going through so much but happy to see everyone is doing better now. Ninth house is soo good, definitely recommend. I just finished crave and it was…addicting but also ridiculous haha. Addicting enough to pick up the sequel though 👀. Happy reading!

    • Yes, it definitely makes it easier! I’m really hoping to get to Spoiler Alert before my loan is up, or I might be stuck waiting on another hold. We’ll see. I hope we both enjoy it!!

  2. Your diet is basically how I have to eat with PCOS. It’s going to be a change but at least there is still good things to eat in moderation! I always have a sweet tooth, haha.

    • Yes, there are still lots of yummy foods to eat!! I like my sweets from time to time, too. I just finished baking some pumpkin bread. It’s my first time trying this recipe, so I have my fingers crossed that I’ll like it.
