Sunday Post–May 18

May 18, 2014 2014, Sunday Post 6



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 Week

Around the house

I’ve been in Des Moines all week. My daughter and I have packed boxes and delivered them to her new house all week after she gets home from work. Also putting shelf paper in the kitchen and unpacking a few boxes. I’ve been at the house several days for the carpet cleaner and satellite hookup. Saturday was moving day so we were busy most of the day. I did a bit of reading and audiobook listening during my random moments! The house is full of boxes, but it looks great. I think she’ll be very happy!

Internet was connected at the new house on Friday, but when we tried to connect on Saturday evening it didn’t work so I’m finishing up this Sunday Post at Starbucks! I won’t comment or answer comments until we get the internet connection working. I will comment when I can.

Bout of Books 10

I’m participating in the Bout of Books 10 Read-a-thon and hoping to read at least three books plus take part in some challenges and twitter chats. I haven’t had a chance to figure out what I need to do so I’m hoping to work on that!
