Sunday Post: Apr 5

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!

Home & blog

I didn’t write a Sunday Post last week since I was getting back from Ireland! We had a wonderful time. It was a whirlwind trip and we were constantly on the go, but so much fun. Our group got home (to Chicago) from Ireland last Saturday night. My husband and I flew home to Maryland on Sunday. He left on Monday for a week working in Philadelphia and Denver. 😦 So he didn’t have time to get over jet lag. However, I’m the one who got to stay home and rest and I still got an awful cold! That doesn’t seem fair to one of us!

We did get home to find our crocus blooming!

I hope to start feeling better soon and catch up with all the blogs I want to visit and see what everyone was up to in March!

What books did you collect last week? What are you planning next week?

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  3. That is an awesome picture right there! It’s inconceivable! 😉

    I’m really curious to see what you think of Talon — that book looks really good, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.

    Thanks for stopping by Classy Cat Books!

    1. Thanks, Bea! We are busy. I’m hoping things slow down a little after next weekend! I feel so lucky to have been in Ireland–though it already feels long ago.

  5. I got Talon too recently, but I’m more interested by your Ian Rankin ^^ I went to Ireland many years ago, but mainly in Kerry. Welcome back home, enjoy your crocus and have a great week !

    1. Yes, I want to read the Ian Rankin soon, too. We went to Kerry, too–beautiful. I’m loving my crocus. We went to look at plants this weekend and talked about new plants for the yard. Yay!
