Weekly Update for August 31, 2015

I have an affiliate relationship with Bookshop.org and Malaprop's Bookstore in beautiful Asheville, NC. I will earn a small commission at no additional cost to you if you purchase merchandise through links on my site. Read more on my affiliate page.

It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. She’s taking a bit of personal leave so I’m also linking to Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

What. A. Week. I had some huge, surprising changes at work that have left me excited and nervous all at the same time. Yesterday my husband and I ran some errands then we rented a mountain bike for me (hubby already has one) and hit the trails. This was my first time. It did not go well at first, with me pushing the bike and fuming more often than I was pedaling, but as I got more comfortable with the bike, I did better. I’ll give it another chance for sure.

  1. Your biking adventure sounds like when my husband and I go biking! Lol. I am not super comfortable on a bike, and my hubs is a bike enthusiast. I have never ridden on trails before, that sounds like a whole new ball game, but a fun one. (kind of! lol)

  2. I am sure each time will get easier on the bike, and I hope the changes at work are positive ones!

  3. Surprising changes that leave you "excited and nervous" sound really positive. Enjoy!

    What an adventure you had on the mountain bike.

    Have a great week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  4. Congrats on your good news, whatever it is 🙂 I've heard persevering with Shantaram is worth it.

  5. Hopefully work changes will be great when you adjust. Good on you for getting out and mountain bike riding. Would be difficult I would imagine.
