Sunday Post: January 22

January 22, 2017 2017, Sunday Post 12


Kimba hosts the Sunday Post each week. I like to take part because it gives me an opportunity to look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also love to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading.

Home and Blog

We had some freezing rain early in the week. That kept me inside for a few days, but that was fine. At the beginning of the year I moved things around in my craft room and I didn’t finish arranging everything so this week I worked on that. I still have more to do. Every time I move something that means I have to figure out where to put it.

My son arrives for a visit on Wednesday so I need to clean the bedroom. He’s bringing his dog with him so I’m looking forward to spending time with Donnie, too!


I posted my first review of the new year as well as the first review in a long time. That felt good. I hope to post at least one review a week. And I’m hoping to get caught up on comments.

    OH, I hope you like Rebel of the Sands! I thought it was pretty good. I’d love to read the next one right away but no doubt by the time it is released I would’ve moved on and that just kills it.

    Sounds like you made good use of your inside time! I know just what you mean about having to figure out where everything you move goes! It’s such a never ending task. We aren’t moving but I’m trying to re-purpose the girls’ rooms since they have their own places now and I’m pretty sure it’s a never ending task. I’m looking forward to seeing your take on Rebel of the Sands and A Dying Fall. They’re both on my TBR. Have a great week!

      We are using my craft room as a third bedroom so I’m trying to make it neater as well as more usable to me. It’s quite hard for me to keep it neat since I’m quite messy as a crafter. On well, I will keep trying.

    We had that nasty freezing rain here a few weeks ago, so glad it’s gone. Today all it has done is rain, I am so tired of the rain. Hope you have a great visit with your Son and his dog. 🙂

    Have a great week and happy reading!

    I’m really behind in my reading and reviewing as well, though thankfully the books I read in the last couple of weeks aren’t being published until this week and next week, so I’ve got time….
