Sunday Post: Our first frost

October 29, 2017 2017, Sunday Post 20

Kimberly 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 It’s Halloween and November next week. And we had our first frost here in Iowa Friday night so the growing season for most plants is done for this year.

Autumn-themed children’s picture books

Autumn-themed children’s picture books

October 25, 2016 2016, Top Ten Tuesday 6
