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 and blog
It’s November, but it sure didn’t feel like it most of this week. Our warmest day was Friday and it was almost 80 degrees. Saturday it started out warm, but then the temps dropped to mid-fifties with rain. I’m glad of that. Ready for cooler weather for next week.
It’s been a warm fall here with frost only one night so far this fall. Roses are still blooming outside! I brought my hibiscus inside a couple weeks ago and it has bloomed several times. And my Christmas cactus is blooming already, too–a little early!
My husband and I are doing fall cleaning–sorting through things and getting rid of what we no longer use or need. This week it was sorting through clothes. Always good to lighten the load.
What we’re watching
Elementary is back and we really enjoyed that this week. Also thought Big Bang Theory was very good this week. It was funny and bittersweet–poor Sheldon.
I completed quite a few posts this week. That was fun! Lots of stuff scheduled next week, too, since Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon begins and Sci-Fi Month continues.

“Our Hopes and Dreams for TV’s Next Trek” from B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
- CBS TV has announced a new Trek series coming in January 2017. So far there isn’t much information about the series, but the B&N blog post talks about various options for the series.
Next Week–home & blog
Another busy week. We’re continuing to clean out stuff. Lots to do before we leave for Thanksgiving.
Also a busy month with the blog. I’m really enjoying Sci-Fi Month. The book some of us are reading for the Read Along–The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet–is so much fun to read. It’s hard to stop at the end of the week’s reading! And I’m looking forward to the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon and some Christmas reading.
