Race day! 10k in the books! I ran faster than I've ever run in a race but didn't quite make my 10min/mile goal. Finished at 1:06:41 which gave me a 10:20min/mile average. Considering I had a pretty rough November dealing with some health lows, I'm proud of this. I didn't walk and a couple of those miles I even managed to run under 10 min so progress! Now bring me a book & some hot coco! I'm not going to move for the rest of the night. 😆

This was good. I expected more of the environmental aspect in the book. I ended up enjoying the biographical part of the book best. Much of the 2nd half of the book included her travels to various conferences and counsels to tell the story of the Inuit to put a “human face” on the environmental crisis in the Arctic. Surprising to me, I just didn‘t find that part as interesting. Overall, though, I liked it.

If you are a lover of all thing Anne of Green Gables, you will enjoy this book. I always wondered about the relationship between Marrila and John Blythe. This story explains all and gives us a glimpse into Matthew and Marrila‘s younger years. Read the whole book in one day! Only complaint is that some of the Canadian history is not correct.

omg, I love Beauvoir and Gamache! I was not expecting much from this book, a typical cozy mystery, with the added benefit of being in the much loved Eastern townships, but, wow, this book was above and beyond! It's totally a cosy mystery, but also so much more. Hard to explain, but more interesting, more "deep". I am going to enjoy reading more of this series (I hope!). #cosymystery

Husband and I always wanted to spend one Christmas with his family in Norway but it never worked out. But still I wish I could go somewhere in Norway to see the northern lights.

I read another Det. Gamache book out of order so I decided to start with book 1. It didn‘t disappoint. Here, a complex plot comes together after tiny details are peppered thruout. An artist is killed by an arrow in a small Canadian town, and guilt centers early on a local family. Meanwhile Gamache is trying to mentor an infuriating new recruit. Expect crazy surprises. #wintergames #tmskellington #tbrread

A vivid and unflinching, well written account of the battle for the ridge. It‘s difficult to understand even while reading the words, what these brave young 🇨🇦 men faced before, during and after that chilly day in April 1917 so many years ago. They fought with the hope that it would truly be the war to end all wars — I wish that had turned out to be true. This was a powerful read and I highly recommend it!

😊😂 the author wouldn't use the outhouse because of jinn. This is part of the conversation that followed with her children of about 5 to 8.
