The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is where I review my last week and look ahead to what I might be doing next week.
Around the House
We drove home from Iowa this week. Lots of driving, but fun to see friends and family. My husband helped his dad clean up his yard to get ready for spring.
We arrived back in the DC area and it was summer! The daffodils my sisters-in-law helped me plant last fall are blooming, tulips are growing and the lawn is getting green. We’ve only been in this house a few months so this is our first spring. The soil is terrible–hard clay. The builder destroyed all the top soil and compacted everything so we are just hoping to keep the lawn growing. Our lot has a few trees growing at the end of our very small backyard and we have a runoff pond just beyond that so we have a little more privacy than most people in the subdivision. We’ve put up bird feeders and over the winter had lots of birds…goldfinches, woodpeckers, chickadees, cardinals, and hoards of red winged blackbirds! My cats love to watch them through the windows (as do I)!

Around the web
Kristen at Fantasy Cafe is hosting her second annual Women in SF&F Month. Each day in April she has a post by fellow bloggers or authors, For example, Lois McMaster Bujold has written a post about the women who write science fiction and fantasy and how this conversation is a re-run of many others. Very interesting! I’ve been enjoying all the posts. I’ve found a number of new authors and books to read! Go and check them out.
Around the house
A little more spring than summer this week so I’m hoping to plant some containers with flowers. I’m also hoping to do lots of reading. I bought the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning and am reading the first book. Really enjoying it. I also want to start making more cards. I’ve lots of birthdays and friends and family to send “happy spring” cards to! It should be a fun, productive week!
