Sunday Post–April 7

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is where I look back at the last week and look ahead to what I might be doing next week.

Last Week

Around the House

Spring Clean-up in Iowa

We haven’t been around the house too much. We drove from Maryland to Iowa for a quick trip to see some of our family. We’ve been having a great time here in Iowa and though we don’t see flowers blooming or trees leafing out yet it’s in the 60’s. Nice to have some warm weather. We haven’t had more than a day or two in the 60’s in Maryland so far this year and we are quite a bit further south than Iowa. I guess it’s supposed to get into the 70’s there next week. Yay!

On my blog
I signed up for Goodreads this week. I wish I had done it several years ago, but I’m enjoying it now. It’s a great place to connect with other people reading the same kinds of books I do and also to list the books I’ve read.

Even though we spent much of the week traveling, I managed to post some things on the blog this week:

I read several books last week:

I’m excited to read some of these books. Other than the books by Steve Miller/Sharon Lee, R. L. Naquin and Kate Elliott I haven’t read any of these authors’ books. It’s always fun to find new authors and one of my reading challenges this year is to read new authors. I’m doing a good job with that so far!

Next Week

We will be driving back home next week. We plan to get back on Tuesday evening. It has been a lot of driving, but my husband and I enjoy traveling together and it’s so much fun to see family and friends. But it will be good to get back to my cats.

On the blog
I’m hoping to add a couple of reviews.
