Halfway mark for Dewey’s readathon

Today is the 24 hour readathon. I started it with an audio book as I laid in bed still achy and sore from the day before.  Waking up at 8 am is the hardest especially on painful weeks but listening to The neon Lawyer by victor methos helped kick things off. It was free with Amazon prime membership which is always a plus and life saver for me.

While I prepped everything in my morning routine I continued to listen to this book. I even listened as I prepped for dinner and I think I will continue this habit of listening to books while doing chores and cooking so I can get more books under my belt. Especially trying to met my reading goal on Goodreads.

It felt so good to relax and enjoy reading without flipping threw netflix as I always do when I am stuck home during mister officer’s long days. 

The book I did manage to engulf myself into reading is Purple orchids. Oh my lord! I give it 5 stars, that’s how awesome it was, from the main character Gavin to the wonderful story plot of first love etc. This book isn’t a typical book I would have pawed threw this quickly but I did and I have zero regretts about it being the first book I read during the readathon.

There is still about 12 more hours to go and I am utterly excited to see what other books I have in my kindle to emerse myself into and actually feel words and descriptions because to me thats the valuable part of books and actually visualize it all which Purple Orchids hit it dead on. I always enjoyed reading so much and a big part of me has shyed away from it because being a mom eats up so much of my time (I don’t mind but it feels great to read just for myself).

I have no regrets in taking on this 24 hour readathon headon. I hope I still feel this once its over. Wish me luck!

Read on! And did you know about Dewey’s 24 hour readathon prior to this post? 


I couldn’t resist. . . 

I had purchased a beautiful Websters color crush planner from joanns in the spring of this year 2016. It matched me perfectly, so blissfully I stored it away to be used in 2017 but this month,  I couldn’t resist pulling it off my shelf and set it up. 

I know,  I love my precious Filofax domino but it just wasn’t screaming to me as much as my Websters color crush.  
So here is below.

I printed the year at a glance from pengems.com that is free. 

I love this cute Lil printable I found on pinterest and glued it on to this paper from a recollections paper pad I recently hauled. I’m a coffee junkie and this was beyond fitting and combined well with the planner. 

The remaining months of this year  inserts  from  the  1407 planner. 

Some of my tabs I made that are purple and  baby  blue with  bows on  them. 

Kept the  inserts  from  Websters  pages. I removed the weeklies because I want to purchase some just don’t know from where yet.  

Left the  list that  came  with the  planner and placed my color coding stickers into the slot to always  have  on  hand. 

I love the colors and I’m excited to continue sharing my planners with you via here and my youtube channel. 

Stay blessed.
