A busy week. Lots of coffee. Lots of writing. And lots of running. 
Yesterday, we went for a bike ride and did some geocaching for the first time in 2017. (If you don't know what geocaching is: it's basically looking for Tupperware containers with the help of a GPS device, like your phone. A treasure hunt so to speak. Find out more here. Great fun with children or adults like me.) Haven't been on my bike in a few months, because riding over ice and wet leaves isn't that much fun. Ouch, does my ass hurt today!
We're still running every day. I'm very proud of that. 81 kilometres so far in January, a little over 50 miles. If we continue like this we'll hit a 1'000 kilometres by the end of the year and that would be an achievement for little miss lazy, aka me.

I wasn't very adventurous on the cooking front. My two favourite dishes this week were tasty pork meatballs with a home-made teriyaki sauce and pork fillet with a stroganoff sauce.

I've read/reviewed
  • Ursula Le Guin's The Word for World is Forest. It was only a novella so I didn't review it on my blog. 
  • And I read the second book in the Red Rising trilogy, Golden Sun. You can read my review here (no spoilers for the first book.)
  • The Year of The Flood by Margaret Atwood finally got a review.
I've finally started Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch and a bookclub of mine is reading André Agassi's Open.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

  4. I've never geocached but I've always wanted to try it, I know some people who do it. And great job on the running!

    I've only read one LeGuin book but I liked it.

  5. As I happens I really only know what geocaching is because I read about it in a book! (So, an added benefit of reading!)

  7. Coffee, writing, running! It all sounds so fantastic. You're doing so amazingly well! And geocaching sounds fun - I've never tried it.

    I'm coming to read the Red Rising reviews when I'm not half asleep. I'm so interested in that series and I want to see how it's going for you, particularly after the second book!

    Hope you have a lovely week!

  8. hummm I'm jealous. Lots of writing? Show off!
    hummm kidding.. [well only half] glad there was lots of writing :)
    I had NEVER heard of geocaching in my life. I'm gonna google it. Sounds like something my spawns may like. Do I hate when my bike makes my ass hurt though :( so hopefully you don't necessarily need a bike

    Congrats on all that running!

    WHERE are the pork meatballs and pork fillet recipes?? Can't find them! humph!

    1. Maybe I should make a few recipe posts hehe! Also, there's no need for bike when it comes to geocaching, I think most people walk while doing it. Definitely look it up! Thank you for stopping by!
