Sunday Post: Oct 6

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 and blog

Lots of rain, wind and cooler weather this week and I love it!

One of our nieces had a baby prematurely last week. Luckily, they have expert care and the baby is doing okay so far. We are so relieved and happy for all of them. They’ve given their baby boy an Irish name–Cian (meaning ancient, enduring)–which is such a great name. The hardest part for the Mom and Dad right now is that Cian has to stay in neonatal intensive care for at least a couple months and it’s several hours from their home.

What we’re watching

We watched the first episode of Heroes–Reborn, but weren’t wowed by it. We remembered how much we liked the first season of Heroes (from several years ago) so we’re watching that on Netflix and loving it.

Fall cleaning

I spent some of Saturday going through boxes (yes, boxes) of magazines we moved here from Ohio. I kept a few, but recycled most of them. It makes me feel guilty, because no one seems to want magazines anymore. The cooking magazines were the hardest to get rid of. 😦  But I’ve vowed we’re not going to move boxes of magazines when we move again.

Blog

The Blog Ahead Challenge has started and so far I haven’t done too much. I’ve spent the first few days of the month redesigning my blog. I still have a few tweaks, but I’ve done most of the major updates, I think. Let me know what you think. I still have some more technical things to do plus working on social media.
