I’m writing about a few of my favorite things from the past week.

This week flew by because of the short week due to Easter. Unfortunately Covid cases have risen here in Alberta, so earlier this week more restrictions were put into place. As sad as I am that they had to be put in place, I’m hoping that the infection rate goes down. Vaccines are slowly but surely being distributed here. I have a couple family members who’ve either gotten their first dose or have an appointment to get it. I’m going to have to wait a few more months until I’m eligible to get one too.

The Winter People

I recently borrowed The Winter People (affiliate link) by Jennifer McMahon from the library and finished reading it this week. It was such a good read! I read it in just 2 or 3 days because I just didn’t want to stop reading it. It’s a good thing that last weekend was a long weekend. It’s definitely one of my favorite books of 2021. I have a couple more Jennifer McMahan books on hold at the library because I enjoyed this one so much. It was equal parts creepy and mystery with a touch of paranormal. If that sounds appealing to you I highly recommend you give it a read.

Here’s the synopsis from Good Reads:

West Hall, Vermont, has always been a town of strange disappearances and old legends. The most mysterious is that of Sara Harrison Shea, who, in 1908, was found dead in the field behind her house just months after the tragic death of her daughter.

Now, in present day, nineteen-year-old Ruthie lives in Sara’s farmhouse with her mother, Alice, and her younger sister. Alice has always insisted that they live off the grid, a decision that has weighty consequences when Ruthie wakes up one morning to find that Alice has vanished. In her search for clues, she is startled to find a copy of Sara Harrison Shea’s diary hidden beneath the floorboards of her mother’s bedroom. As Ruthie gets sucked into the historical mystery, she discovers that she’s not the only person looking for someone that they’ve lost. But she may be the only one who can stop history from repeating itself.

Chicken burgers

I tried some new to me chicken burgers this week. For some reason I haven’t ordered chicken burgers with our grocery orders for months. They popped into my head last week so I made sure to order them on Sunday. If you’re in Calgary, I got them from Save On Foods.

I’m so glad that I did because they were really good. They’re a different brand than I have ordered previously, but they’re just as good. I’ve had some pretty bad chicken burgers in the past, so I’m a bit weary when it comes to trying new ones. Chicken burgers are one of my favorite things to cook on the barbeque. THe barbeque adds flavor, and a bun toasted on there too is perfect.

What’s your favorite thing to cook on the barbeque? Share in the comments.

    This comment is actually in regard to another post regarding My Fitness Pal. You stated that the cost is $9.99 per month or $49.99 per year. I decided to upgrade to premium. Your information is inaccurate. The cost of Premium is $79.99 if you pay for a year and $19.99 if you subscribe month to month. Big difference.

      Hi Beverly,

      Thanks for the comment. I just checked and it looks like the cost of My Fitness Pal premium is still $9.99/month or $49.99/year. Check out this link and scroll all the way to the bottom for the prices. Is it possible the price difference is a result of using a different currency? I believe the prices on the link are in USD.


      I’ll make sure to update the info on my blog post to make sure it’s clear that it’s in USD.
