Sunday Post: Jan 18


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 got a tiny (very tiny) bit of snow this week. Forecast was 2 inches, we got about 1/2 inch and the schools were all closed! That’s the most snow we’ve had this winter!

My husband got home on Saturday, but he was sick all week while he was working out-of-town. I think he probably has the flu so I’m nursing him and making him take it easy. He’s ready to drink warm liquids and sleep. We both got flu shots last October, but the shot’s not working too well this year.

I spent another week sorting and organizing, but also getting the last of my books from 2014 set up for review. And fitting in some reading, too!

I think my husband  is probably going to be home sick for a few days this next week so what I’ll be doing is up in the air. However, I hope to at least get some reading done.
