Sunday Post: Jun 14


The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

goldfinches at feeder

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

Summer is here . . . very hot and humid. We had a breeze several evenings though and my husband and I sat outside for a while enjoying the yard. We’re still feeding birds and have had so many goldfinches after the thistle seed. So fun to watch. One time we counted 16 goldfinches at the feeder and in the trees waiting their turn! We also have so many teeny, tiny frogs (toads?) in our yard. I try not to step on them, but they’re very hard to see. At night the sound of frogs (and probably insects) is so loud outside it’s hard to hear each other. I like hearing the frogs and as long as the insects stay away from me I don’t mind them singing at night!

We took more books to the library. The family visit at the end of the month is a great reason to declutter!

Home & blog

We’re traveling to Iowa next weekend for a long weekend. It’s Father’s Day here in the States and we’re spending it with my husband’s dad and other family members. My husband plans to work in the yard. We’re going to the local community theater to see Cats and I know we’ll do lots of other fun things.
