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!

Hello June! Beautiful June weather. It was cool and rainy the first part of the week which I enjoyed. I don’t want the entire summer cool and rainy, but the week before had been around 90 degrees several days. It’s started warming back up, but the rain helped the new flowers and trees we’ve planted so that’s also very nice.
My brother is coming to visit the last week of June and first part of July. We were hoping the whole family could come, but no one else is able to make the trip. We’re trying to get the house cleaned and we’re sorting and donating things. Plus I’m continuing to sort through books. We took five boxes of books to our library. They run a bookstore for books donated so I hope I’m helping them! My husband took a couple of days off work to help sort and clean. He’s a keeper!
Lots of sports going on right now–women’s world cup soccer, ice hockey playoffs and the first triple crown winner (American Pharoah winning the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes) in horse racing in 37 years. Plus all the regular sporting events.

I’m trying to get caught up on my reviews. We’ll see how that goes. With the weather turning hotter again we will have to water all our new plantings. I also have lots of cards to send for birthdays and anniversaries this month and I need to get more made!
