Sunday Post: Oct 25

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!

Maine coast and greeting cards

We stayed at the Maine coast–in a small town called Ogunquit–last weekend and had a wonderful time. The weather was beautiful–cool, but lots of sun. We had a great hotel room–at high tide the water came so close it looked like we could step right into the water! A river runs into the ocean at Ogunquit (and in front of our hotel). At low tide it was easy to see the river, but not so easy at high tide. We could have stayed on our balcony the whole time and watched the ocean, but we helped the economy by shopping, eating and sightseeing!

Once again it felt like a very short week. I did get some cards made. I have a number of birthdays plus autumn cards I want to send. I hope to make and send a few Halloween cards early in the week, too.

What we’re watching

Nothing new this week!


I made a little progress with Bog Ahead, but at the expense of visiting other blogs so next week I need to do both plus keep reading!

  • Julia Spencer-Fleming (author of Through the Evil Days and other mysteries in the Claire Fergusson & Russ Van Alstyne series) one of the writers of the Jungle Red Writers blog wrote a post “Three Ingredients, Seven Hours” about crock pot recipes with just three ingredients. Crock pot meals always seem like a great fall dinner.

Next Week–home & blog

Halloween is on Saturday and I want to send a few cards to friends and family so I hope to get those finished and mailed on Monday.

I want to finish up with Blog Ahead by getting a few posts ready since this is the last week. And I want to visit a few more blogs. And I want to read plenty of books. And . . . .
