Sunday Post: Jul 26

rp_sundaypostmeme13.jpg 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

I arrived in Iowa on Thursday. I’m having lots of fun. My daughter’s dog Bailey just got spayed so she had to wear a cone over her head to keep from licking the incision. The stitches are out now so she’s back to her fun and active self.

My older daughter came for the weekend and as well as my brother-in-law and sister-in-law. They are bringing their Great Pyrenees, Emma, with them so we should have fun times! Bailey and Emma are great friends.

I decided to request a few books at NetGalley and I got two of them! I have one more pending so we’ll see if I get that one. I don’t want to get too many and turn it into a chore–which is what I would do…lol.

Home & blog

The week will start out quietly since our guests leave on Sunday, but Friday we leave for northern Wisconsin and a long weekend up there. It is a family reunion with lots of fun activities! I don’t know if I’ll be able to get my Sunday Post up or not. The internet coverage in northern Wisconsin isn’t always the best!
