Sunday Post–August 18

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

A look back at my last week and forward to the next week:


Last Week

Around the House

I got quite a bit done this week: read two books, wrote three blog posts, some housecleaning, organizing in my craft room, laundry….


I’m trying out a new type of review on my blog. I’m calling it a bullet point review. As I stated on the review: When UI started my blog I wanted to write fairly short reviews…that’s why it’s called “Notes…lol. I read a blog post at the On Starships and Dragonwings blog about doing list reviews.

My review for The Proposal is my first bullet point review (list review). I plan to do a few more of these reviews before I decide whether to adopt them for all my reviews. Check it out and let me know what you think–even if you hate it!

Next Week

Around the house

My oldest daughter came home this weekend. She’s starting graduate school at the end of this month in Illinois. She’s got an apartment now so she’s coming here to pick up the rest of her stuff including her two cats we’ve been taking care of! They’re great cats and I’ll miss them. I’ll also miss having her closer (she was in North Carolina and spent some time with us this summer).

I’m also starting another online class. This one is about using to set up your own hosted website/blog. The first class I took (with the same instructor) about using was great.
