Sunday Post–June 1


The 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 take part in every week and I thank Kimba for hosting it!

Last Week


Around the house

A week to catch up on sleep, the bills, make up with my cats for being gone so long and do a little cleaning! We had sun, hot weather (89 degrees F), rain, thunderstorms, wind and cool weather (65 degrees F–the day after the 89 degrees).

We have a play on both Saturday night (Cymbelline–and it was very good) and Sunday afternoon (Henry IV, part 2) so it’s a busy weekend…LOL.

Around the house

My husband is out-of-town all week on business so I hope to read more than usual! I think I’m staying home for the month of June which is good since I need to catch up on lots of stuff! I’m hoping it’s not too humid since I’d like to sit outside and read.
