Sunday Post: Nov 16

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

We’re continuing our “spring” cleaning finding more to give-away. Plus I went to a Neil Simon play (“They’re Playing Our Song”) in the middle of the week. A good week. We’ve finally had below freezing temps and it’s staying cold for a while. We leave for Thanksgiving next week…can’t believe it’s so close!

I finished up the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon this week. Read and reviewed one book and nearly finished another Christmas book during the read-a-thon. I ended up not doing any of the challenges or being able to do the twitter chat. I was glad to get the books read though.

I didn’t make as much progress on my Blog Ahead Challenge this week, but will post my progress on Monday as I have several posts nearly complete.

I want to make a lot of progress on Blog Ahead this week, because once we leave for Thanksgiving I won’t have as much time. Plus I have much to do to get ready to leave for Thanksgiving.
