Sunday Post: Apr 5

April 5, 2015 2015, Sunday Post 14


The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I like this meme because it gives me an opportunity to take a look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also like to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading. This is a great meme to take part in every week and I thank Kimba for hosting it!


Last Two Weeks


Cliffs of Moher on the west coast of Ireland in County Clare. These cliffs were used in the movie The Princess Bride (called “The Cliffs of Insanity” in the movie).

I didn’t write a Sunday Post last week since I was getting back from Ireland! We had a wonderful time. It was a whirlwind trip and we were constantly on the go, but so much fun. Our group got home (to Chicago) from Ireland last Saturday night. My husband and I flew home to Maryland on Sunday. He left on Monday for a week working in Philadelphia and Denver. 🙁 So he didn’t have time to get over jet lag. However, I’m the one who got to stay home and rest and I still got an awful cold! That doesn’t seem fair to one of us!

We did get home to find our crocus blooming!

I hope to start feeling better soon and catch up with all the blogs I want to visit and see what everyone was up to in March!

    How exciting to visit Ireland! I’m really looking forward to visiting myself one day though it will be a little while. I look forward to your post on it and your Crombie review. Hope your cold is better!

      Yes, I want to read the Ian Rankin soon, too. We went to Kerry, too–beautiful. I’m loving my crocus. We went to look at plants this weekend and talked about new plants for the yard. Yay!
