Sunday Post: Jan 25


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

My husband went back to work at the end of the week so that’s good. And I didn’t get the flu so that’s even better! I got some reading done this week which was great. When I’m reading a good book that makes everything great. I also made a few cards this week to send for birthdays and “thinking of you” times.

Home & blog

I hope to keep the reading going as well as putting up blog posts. We have a retirement party to go to today and we’re meeting our son for lunch before that. We have a Winter Storm Watch for tonight and tomorrow–for maybe an inch of snow tonight and maybe another inch tomorrow! I shouldn’t make fun–there are always lots of accidents in the DC area when there’s any kind of bad weather.
