Sunday Post: Oct 18

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!

Eastern Shore, Maryland  and on to Maine

This week was really short for us. We went to the Eastern Shore in Maryland on Sunday and Monday–got home Monday evening. And we’re leaving Thursday evening to go to the airport since we have an early flight Friday morning to Maine. We’re visiting my husband’s sister and brother-in-law. We’re meeting them on the coast south of Portland so we have another weekend at the beach! This weekend it’s going to be colder with temps in the 50’s and lows in the 30’s. And maybe some rain. It will still be a fun weekend.

What we’re watching

Not too much time for watching TV this week!

Blog

I managed to get posts done and some reading done this week. I finally answered my comments, but haven’t had a chance to visit any other blogs. We aren’t getting home from Maine until Sunday evening so I’m hoping to have my Sunday Post scheduled to post, but won’t get a chance to connect to Kimba’s blog.

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. You’ve been busy but all your traveling sounds like such fun! I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend in Maine. I really enjoyed your Guaranteed to Bleed review and am enjoying the book right now. I’m very curious about The White Magic Five and Dime. That was on my radar when it first came out but I haven’t gotten it yet. Have a great week!

    1. Thanks, Katherine! We had so much fun in Maine.

      And I jumped on the The White Magic Five and Dime when it was on sale. It had been on my radar when it first came out, too. Now I just have to find time to read it.

    The White Magic Five and Dime looks interesting; happy reading!

    1. Thanks, Bea! Yes, it was cool especially in the mornings (below freezing one morning) so I was glad I had warm clothes to wear. I should have remembered gloves though. My fingers got cold!

  4. I liked Guaranteed to Bleed a lot after a slightly slow start. Once I got a fe chapters in, it took off for me. Your trip looks great- love the boardwalk pic, and the church looks very nice. Safe travels and enjoy Maine!

    1. Thanks, Greg! I think I saw the cover of the first book on your blog maybe and that spurred me to look for that book. So glad I’ve read both. Always nice to find new authors.
