Sunday Post: Sep 27

Sunday-PostThe 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

We got home after midnight on Monday morning from NYC so it was a long weekend, but we had a great time. It was so good to see our son and his girlfriend. They have a great apartment–small, of course–but they’ve got three windows so lots of light and even a view of the top of the Empire State Building!

We saw the musical Something Rotten while we were there. It takes place during Shakespeare’s time before he wrote Hamlet. Shakespeare is portrayed as a rock star and the Bottom Brothers are trying to write a play better than anything Shakespeare can do–maybe even a musical?! It’s very funny and has great songs and dancing. The following is a sneak peek of some of the music and dancing.


After we got home we discovered we had a plumbing problem and had to get a plumber to come out. That was expensive, but at least it’s fixed and the water is working again.

We watched some more new shows this week (Heroes: Reborn and Blindspot) as well as the season premieres of Castle and The Big Bang Theory.

Next Week

Home & blog

Hard to believe October arrives next week. We are still having weather around 80 and usually in the 60’s at night so it’s not cold yet. We do need rain though.

October is the beginning of the Blogging Ahead Challenge so I hope to write lots of posts next week! I’m also working on some blog design changes and I hope to have some ready next week.

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

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.

  1. It is hard to believe October is next week. Yikes. I’ll definitely be by to see your thoughts on Guaranteed to Bleed, as I’m looking forward to that one. How did you like Blind spot?

    That musical looks good.

    1. I know, Greg. It always seems like fall happens so quickly. I’m not sure about Blindspot. It seems like each week will deal with a different tattoo. Have to see how that works out!

  2. I love musicals! Funny how as a youngster I couldn’t stand them. LOL They say it’s fall here. Kind of looking like it, but still feels like summer. Good thing, as I enjoy my swimming time in the pool.

    1. This musical is definitely one for people who love musicals, Laura. Lots of references to different musicals. Very fun! Glad you’re still able to swim in your pool.

  3. That play sounds funny and I do enjoy musicals.I’m glad you all enjoyed it. Sucks about coming home to the plumbing issue but as you said, at least it’s fixed. 🙂

    Have a good week!

  4. Something Rotten sounds fantastic! It’s been far too long since I’ve seen a really good musical. I’m glad the plumbing problem got worked out but what a pain. I’ve got Guaranteed to Bleed coming up so I look forward to seeing your thoughts on it. Have a great week!
