Below I have a few books to mention, status on my writing and my fitness adventures.
First I need to take a moment and remember my Uncle Hank, who passed away last Wednesday. I spent the end of the week with family remembering my Uncle Hank at the funeral home, resurrection services at his church, procession to the cemetery (where I got to run 4 red lights, thanks Uncle Hank) and a luncheon. My Uncle Hank was 88 years old, he was married to my Aunt for 60 years when she passed 4 years ago and they had one daughter. My Uncle and Aunt had one of those marriages that leaves the surviving spouse broken-hearted. I think he only survived these last 4 years because of his sweetheart of a daughter. My Uncle Hank was one of those great men, one who could tell a story amazingly well, I’m going to miss my Uncle Hank!!!
Mac is a typical southern girl, or so she thinks. When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae…
Fae Fever (the 3rd book) ends in a very unexpected way and I have no idea where book 4 will go. I’m going to find out soon, because I started it yesterday. Luckily for me the 5th book in the series came out in January, which I’m betting I’ll gobble up when I’m done with book 4. Love it when an author writes a seriously challenging situation and the heroine finds strength she didn’t even know she had, not to mention the very serious sexual tension. Good stuff here, be sure to check it out!!!
As for my writing, I’d actually hoped to be done with my current book at this point in June. Well so much for wishful thinking!! I have not written in over a month. This week that will change, I need it to change, I need this book on the page and out of my head.
My week ended with all workouts intact, I completed my Sunday Pilates and all 5 40-minute workouts. I didn’t get in my Pilates yesterday (I’m going to try for that some afternoon this week, yesterday I was emotionally spent and needed a day to chill out) and I got in another 40-minute workout in this am. I did a lot better with my food decisions, except for the pan-fried chicken fillet and seriously butter filled rice that I ate at the luncheon. Yes I cracked after a pain filled couple of days. Today I am back on the wagon.
