Sunday Post–April 13

rp_sundaypostmeme13.jpgThe 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 participate in every week and I thank Kimba for hosting it!

Last Week

Around the house

We are back home. Spring is here–trees, daffodils and forsythia blooming, sunny, warm days this week. The cherry blossoms are at their peak this weekend in Washington, DC. I hear they’re beautiful, but we’ve stayed away because of the crowds of people. We’ve seen them in past years and they are beautiful.

I didn’t get my post up about our Europe travels. 😦 I’m waiting for my daughter to check it out, but she’s had a busy week and wasn’t able to. I hope she blesses off on it today so I can add it to the blog! Here is one of my photos from a castle we visited near Dublin!

What books did you collect last week? What are you planning this next week?

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. I don’t ever really enjoy when Husband goes out of town without me, but I do like him being out of the house long enough for me to get some good cleaning done. There’s just something about an empty house and cleaning!

  2. It’s a little sad to say, but when hubbies/bf are not here, things get done so quicker and so much better, huh ? We’ll wait some more for the pictures, that’s ok. I went to Dublin a few years ago and loved it ! Hope your week will be great 😉

    1. Luckily, my husband is usually only gone for a week at a time. It must have been hard having your husband gone for 3-4 weeks at a time. Thanks for coming by, Jenea!

  3. A Spoonful of Murder looks good and OMG I love the cherry trees in DC when they are in bloom, everyone should see it at least once. It is hard getting back from vacation. Good luck and have a wonderful week!

    1. A Spoonful of Murder does look good doesn’t it. And the cherry trees are so beautiful. Definitely worth seeing.

  4. Looking forward to your vacation post, and the castle looks great. Dublin sounds like a fantastic destination from what I’ve heard.

    I read Green Rider a few years ago, and liked it. Hope you enjoy it as well. I understand there are a couple of sequels I probably should track those down…

    1. Thanks, Peggy. It’s warm here now, too, though I guess it’s supposed to be quite a bit colder tomorrow. Oh, well!
