So I read this earlier in the week, had not had time to post as much this week. This was cute and quick. I do like that this author has a lot of books with diverse couples. #wintergames #teamreadnosedreindeer @StayCurious

Watched this in the morning while I was putting laundry away. Omg, what a bad movie. I‘ll watch anything with a dog in it, but man was this poorly developed. #wintergames #teamreadnosedreindeer @StayCurious

Really enjoyed this. It was a nice switch of pace for me, I‘ve been reading a lot of lighthearted stuff and needed a little spook. This was also part of my tbr for this month. #wintergames #teamreadnosedreindeer @StayCurious

#wintergames #teamreadnosedreindeer #christmastreecontest This year not only did we have a puppy to think about, but we are also taking care of my mother-in-law‘s cat. Hence, we decided to skip the tree. Since I still want some holiday cheer, I got this small one from Trader Joe‘s for our coffee table.

I started read this book about 4 yrs ago and although I didn‘t finish it, the chapters I did read always helped put things in perspective. It seemed like a good time to pick it up again.

Listening to an audiobook and coloring. This took a big chunk of time. It took my mind of our current situation, having said that... not sure I‘m into coloring intricate tiny shapes. This one isn‘t finished, but I am finished with it...

#bfcr4 I spent the weekend without service and got back home last night so here is my late check in for last week.

#bfcr4 @Emilymdxn @jessinikkip @LauraJ @suzie.reads @wanderinglynn weekly check in: I meditated 6/7 days, I worked out 2x. I finished A Discovery of Witches and have a few books started. Where I had some issues was with my sugar intake, the week was rough and definitely ate more sweets than I would ideally want. I also know I have to define this goal better, not sure what that looks like yet. Hope you all enjoy your weekend!

Emilymdxn I think you‘re doing great! I like to keep my goals slightly woolly lol, I get so busy and when I‘m sick or anxious I like to keep it broad so I can count making small efforts and bearing things in mind when it‘s all I can manage 3y
suzie.reads You're doing great! Keep doing what you're doing and don't worry about it 😊 3y
LauraJ You‘re off to a great start! Sugar is a tough one - especially around Halloween. It takes awhile to condition our brains not to crave sugar and we have a finite amount of willpower. Hopefully each week will get a little easier. 3y
wanderinglynn Great week! 🙌🏻 Sometimes it takes some tweaking before a goal works for you. And sometimes we have a week. That‘s why BFC goals are adaptable. 😉 3y
jessinikkip Excellent job this week! One reason I love BFC is you can keep updating those goals to find what works. It might be hard to limit sugar during this candy season, but you can do it! 3y

BeansPage That one's actually six-point sweetheart because it's about Halloween so you get five points for the Halloween book and an extra one for the post. Six points total. 🧟‍♀️ 3y

So I‘m really proud of myself for finishing this and finally being able to complete some of the #scaryscavengerhunt this book checks off a few prompts - with a witch in it, that‘s over 200 pages,is part of a series, and maybe (can be debated) about a vampire that‘s 3-4/13 #scarathlon #teamstoker @TheReadingMermaid that‘s 3pts or is it more? Also really enjoyed this book
