Sunday Post: Mar 1


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

The weather continues to surprise me. Snow, sleet and freezing rain last Sunday and we’re supposed to get it all again this Sunday.

I’m trying to get all my COYER eligible books reviewed so I posted four reviews this week and have another four reviews for next week.

Next Week

Home & blog

I’m getting ready to visit one of my daughters next weekend. As usual lots to get done before I leave. We’re going to be going to a wedding and then at the end of the month we’re headed to Ireland for a week with a bunch of other family members. So I’ll be gone most of the month of March, but able to blog at least some of the time.
