Sunday Post: Sep 6

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

Home & blog

Labor Day weekend here in the U.S. Usually considered the last weekend of summer. We’ve certainly had summer weather–in the 90’s–this week. Still no rain, but plenty of humidity. We have a three day weekend with Monday off so that’s great.

Our friend has been here all this week and it has been great to catch up with her on all the things that have happened with us through the years since we last saw each other (about 10 years). We went into Washington, DC on Saturday to  go to lunch at a German restaurant and dinner at a Spanish tapas restaurant and see a Shakespeare play–A Midsummer Night’s Dream–in between lunch and dinner. The play was wonderful and was free on Saturday. We drove around DC to view monuments and stopped a few times to walk through some. We didn’t get home until late, but it was a fun day. Our friend leaves on Tuesday so we have a few more days to stuff in activities!

Since we have a visitor I didn’t do much reading or blogging, but that’s okay. And I got posts done ahead so that’s great.
