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

Home & blogTh-2014

Hard to believe it’s the last day of November! Only one month left for 2014. . .

We’ve been in Iowa all week. Had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration as well as many family activities. We survived it all–even the food (at least so far though I need to ride my stationary bike a longer than normal for the next few months…LOL). I didn’t count how many people we had this year, but it was quite a crowd.

We left for Illinois on Saturday to spend the weekend with one of our daughters and then fly home on Monday. I got a cold during the week (thought it was allergies at first) and haven’t participated in all activities. 🙁

I managed some reading as well as a little work on blog posts in between talking to family and helping with cooking.

Home & blog

We fly home on Monday and I plan to recuperate and get over my cold. My husband leaves on Tuesday for about 10 days on a business trip. I wish he didn’t have to go during the Christmas season, but I’m hoping to work on Christmas cards and presents. And lots of reading and blogging!

    Sounds like you had a fun and busy Thanksgiving week! I hope a couple of days of rest will kick your cold. I’ve been enjoying your Deborah Crombie reviews and I see you got several Charles Finch books. I have the first one and it’s a series I’m really wanting to read. Have a great week and get to feeling better!

    Looks like quite the gathering, and glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. You seem to have a neat tradition where everyone gets together, and it’s nice that everyone wants to keep it going.

    I’m curious about the Charles Finch mysteries and may have to look into those.
