Sunday Post: August 17



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

Home & blogBailey_081614

My older daughter visited last weekend. She left Sunday to go home. We talked her into a short detour and went to visit the puppies. That also gave us a chance to ask questions and make sure we’re ready for the puppy on Saturday. So exciting.

The puppy–Bailey–a black Labrador Retriever–came home with my daughter and I yesterday. She already comes pretty well when we call her name, rode home in the crate with a minimum of fuss and is so much fun! I’m putting up a picture of her. I’m a proud grandma! I’m sure I’ll be adding photos for the next few weeks while I’m here…LOL

I’ve spent some time reading and blogging, visiting other blogs and getting caught up. I had a backlog of comments I had missed. I think I got caught up.
