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.

My husband is out-of-town on business next week so I’m hoping to get more reading and blogging done. Autumn officially arrives on Monday. It’s one of my favorite times of the year!

What books did you collect last week? What are you planning 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. Good luck with Bloggiesta! I’ve got Red Rising too. I’ve had it for a while and I’ve heard great things about it, but I just haven’t started it yet! Hope you have a great week!

  2. The Audible sales always get me 🙂 I’m glad you picked up Red Rising though, that’s such a great book. Even though I’ve read it already, when I saw the audible daily deal for it I was tempted. Totally worth it!


  3. Looks like a nice evening out and a great place to eat. I’m enjoying the milder weather too, really enjoying the cooler air. Good luck with Bloggiesta- I’ve often thought of a custom overhaul as well. One of these days… –


    1. We had a great time, Greg. Yes, I’m trying to decide about an overhaul. I feel like my design is kind of clunky, but I’m not sure exactly what I want. I’ll have to think about it some more, I guess.


  4. Good luck with Bloggiesta! I definitely need to get caught up on some administrative stuff as well. It looks like you had a lovely night out! You got some great books this week! Enjoy your new books and you reading time. Have a great week!


  5. I’ve not done any audible books in a while. I think I’ll get back to that. I’ve finished Red Rising and am curious what you think when you finish it.
    I did nothing special this week, just work and home each day. The weather is in the 90’s with less humidity so I enjoy my morning cup a tea on the back deck and spend a lot of time reading and swimming. I’m not looking forward to giving up my shorts and bare feet. LOL


    1. I really like audiobooks at times. 90’s sounds a little hot to me! At least your humidity is lower, I guess. I love the cooler days and even the cold winter days.


    1. Another blogger who has already read this book and loves it! Thanks, Kimba. Red Rising is moving up my list… I hope you are having a wonderful week, too!


  6. Wow, you did great at the Audible sale!

    I’m enjoying this nice cool weather, too, and starting to think about baking. I don’t seem to bake as much in the summer, but in the fall I can’t resist. I sense pumpkin bread in the near future…

    Shakespeare at the Folger – what a treat! I’m glad you enjoyed it. Sometime you should give the ASC in Staunton, Virginia a try, too. They’re really good.
