Sunday Post: Nov 2


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

This was a busy week. I’m still sorting books and have donated three or four boxes of books to my library so far. It feels good to give away books I know I won’t read again. I still have more boxes of books to go through, but it’s nice I’ve made a start.

We’ve had some strange weather this week. 82 degrees on Tuesday and only 50 degrees on Saturday with rain and wind. I still have some roses blooming which seems strange for the beginning of November! Our leaves are showing more color. I’m glad to have the cooler weather. We haven’t turned our heat on yet, but have turned our gas fireplace on a couple of mornings. And I’m wearing sweaters!

Our son is in NYC all of October and November this year, but he came back to Washington, DC on Halloween and we met him for lunch at a favorite German restaurant that was serving Oktoberfest specials. Yum!

I’ve started on my Blog Ahead Challenge and hope to get ahead a bit with my posts. I’ve been ahead before, but not for awhile. That was one of my goals for 2014. November and December are always busy months for me in my personal life so it would’ve been good if I’d gotten a month ahead before this. . .
