sparkling ice water
I’ve been trying to drink more water lately. My problem isn’t really that I drink too much coffee or soda, it’s just that I don’t drink much of anything. I know that isn’t a good habit, so I’m making a concerted effort to hydrate more.
I bought a 12-pack of sparkling ice water at Sam’s and was surprised by how much I like it. The water is lightly carbonated and tastes more like juice than flavored water, so I think it would be a great option for someone looking to cut back on or quit soda. I’ve found that filling my tumbler with half plain water and half Sparkling Ice mellows it out perfectly for me and helps me stretch the bottled water twice as far.
I got an early copy of this book on my Kindle through Amazon Prime. I get a book or two each month through that program and am generally unimpressed. I just download them because they’re free and I figured, at some point, I might come across something good.
Well, that just happened. Wreckage is the story of David and Lily, the only survivors of a small-plane crash. They were stranded on an island in the South Pacific for 20 months before being rescued. The story takes place after their rescue, with flashbacks to their time on the island. The premise is that David and Lily have secrets about those 20 months, secrets that bind them together and keep them from fully rejoining the lives they lived before the crash.
I read this book in the span of a few days. It was one of those books that I raced to finish, but when I did, I found myself missing the characters, as if they were old friends. I give this one five stars.
