Sunday Post: August 31


Happy Labor Day to everyone in the U. S.



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 & blog

My sister-in-law and father-in-law came for a short visit Sunday afternoon–just time for a house tour, meet Bailey and have lunch. That was fun!

We drove to eastern Iowa Friday night for the Labor Day weekend to visit my father-in-law. My husband and older daughter met us there. We’re all having a good time. Bailey has a huge backyard to play in and a new house to explore. It’s great to see all the family members. I’m spending another 10 days or so in Iowa with my daughter and Bailey.bailey-082714
