Sunday Post: Dec 20


This is a great meme to take part in every week and I thank Kimba for hosting it!

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.

Last Week–home and blog

Wedding–Here we come!

My youngest daughter, my son and I are headed to Wisconsin for a wedding on Saturday. One of our favorite nephews is getting married and we’re so happy for him and his bride.

We are leaving on Thursday afternoon and driving part way stopping in Decorah, Iowa for the night. Decorah is a small town, but is renowned for its Norwegian museum, microbrewery–Toppling Goliath–and Luther College. Quite a lot of renown for a town of about 8,100 people!

Friday morning we’re heading to Wausau, WI where we’re staying. The wedding is in a small town nearby on Saturday afternoon, but we have activities for Friday afternoon and evening. Then the wedding on Saturday and reception and dinner Saturday night.

My husband, son and I are driving back to Des Moines on Sunday. Our daughters will arrive a little later in the week and we are all spending Christmas here in Des Moines!


I watched the first episode of Expanse and liked that. I didn’t have time to watch the second episode or anything else!

The blog

I’m behind on my book reviews so was glad to post three of them again this week. Not much reading or commenting done this week. It’s been a very busy week.

Next Week–home & blogMerry-Christmas

We are in Des Moines for most of Christmas week. We have a special treat during the day on Christmas Eve. We’re going to see Star Wars at the IMAX theater in town! We try to see a new movie every year during the Christmas holidays. We’re super excited it’s Star Wars this year.

My husband and I drive to Illinois the day after Christmas and then fly back home on Sunday, 27 December. I’ve loved my time in the Midwest and spending so much time with my children, but it will be good to get home, spend one-on-one time with my husband and see my cats. I’ve missed them all so much!

Since we’re flying on Sunday I’m not sure I will have time to do a Sunday Post.
