Happy weekend! What are your plans for the last weekend in January?! Which is absolutely crazy right? I feel like we just started the month. Regardless, I hope you have a wonderful day 🙂
So Alex and I have had our heat turned off the past few days since our bill was ridiculously high this past month. Well our noggins didn’t think to look at the forecast and it was below freezing outside when we woke up. So we quickly turned the heat back on but talk about a quick wake up call. Luckily a hot shower and cozy clothes warmed me up before I made breakfast. Scrambled eggs and toast because I’m super predictable 😉
During work, I continued reading Day for Night by Frederick Reiken while eating lunch. I started this on Thursday and by the time I got home from work. I was about 60% of the way through. It’s an interesting book. There are a bunch of characters (I want to say 6) that are so unrelated and somehow their stories are intertwined. I’m still trying to figure it out because the characters include a Jewish refuge that came to America before World War II to a fugitive being chased by the FBI to a boy that has been in a coma or two months.
In true Friday fashion, after work I headed to the grocery store. It was a big trip because we seemed to run out of a few staples. Does that happen to anyone else where you run out of staples at the same time? Luckily Alex worked from home in the afternoon so I didn’t have to carry it all up myself. I read on the couch after we caught up on our days.
For dinner, we made buffalo chicken cheesesteaks! This is something Alex always gets when we have takeout from one place so we decided to try making it at home. I had chicken breasts and hot sauce in the crock pot on low all day and shredded it. To make the sandwich, I melted provolone cheese on sandwich rolls in the oven then put the chicken on top. So easy and delicious! We also had some cheese fries on the side.
After dinner, I finished “Day for Night”. Well I fell asleep in the last 20 pages so it was a struggle to finish. Personally I didn’t like the book. I feel like there were some characters who got introduced and had a whole chapter told from their point of view who just dropped out of the story. When I first started, it seemed extremely interesting which is why I continued to read it. It just didn’t do it for me so I wouldn’t recommend.
The second the book was over I went to sleep. I actually fell asleep on the couch first and then Alex woke me up and I headed to bed.
Question of the day: What book are you currently reading?
