Sunday Post: Sep 21

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

I’m getting back into my routine here at home. The weather is cooler–in the 70’s during the day and 50’s at night–which I love. I’m getting ready to cook more Fall type foods–squash, apples, roasts, bread.

My husband and I went into Washington, DC on Saturday and went to see King Lear at the Folger Shakespeare Theater. Afterword we went to a Spanish tapas restaurant for dinner. We didn’t have reservations so we ended up sitting at the bar and ordering our meal there. That worked out really well. We got great service and we sat down as soon as we came in. (It was good we did since lots of people were waiting.) It was a great night out together!

I’m doing Fall Bloggiesta (18-21 Sep) trying to make a few changes to my blog and do some administrative tasks I had put off. I’m trying to decide if I want a custom update to my blog and if I do what I would want. I changed the header this weekend, but I’m not sure I like it. There’s a mini challenge with Bloggiesta to figure out what to do before hiring a blog designer. I plan to work on that on Sunday and really think about what I want.

Since I’m concentrating on my blog I haven’t done as much reading this week–again.
