Sunday Post: Dec 27


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

My husband, three kids and I were all together for Christmas this year. So nice. Doesn’t happen so often when the kids are grown. We even had a bit of snow for a white Christmas!

We saw Star Wars on Christmas Eve and played Exploding Kittens card game on Christmas! Swedish pancakes for Christmas breakfast, pork loin for Christmas dinner and Mocha Pudding Cake for dessert. We all had a wonderful time together.

My husband and I drove to Illinois on Saturday for our flight home from Chicago on Sunday. Lots of fog and rain. Hard to believe up to 70 when we arrive in Maryland on Sunday.


We caught up on Dr. Who. We don’t get BBC America and my daughter has all the episodes saved so we have watched the current season including the Christmas special. Yay!

The blog

Not much on the blog this week–it was Christmas. I hope to catch up on my commenting next week.

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. Sounds like you had a lovely Christmas but I can imagine it will be good to be home. Your daughter’s lab is adorable! The black labs have always been my favorite and what a sweet face she has! I haven’t watched the Doctor Who Christmas special yet but I really enjoyed this season. I think Capaldi really got comfortable with the character. Have a great week and a happy New Year!


  2. Oh I love Doctor Who and my hubby and I don’t have anything but netflix and hulu so I binge when I can as well!! Glad you got to be with your family for Christmas!


  3. What a wonderful Christmas! It is harder to have everyone together for the holidays once they are grown. I only saw my mother and younger brother for Christmas. I’m not a Dr. Who fan, but I love catching up on my favorite shows I don’t get to see! I hope you have a good flight and happy new year!


  4. Sounds like a wonderful Christmas! How did you like Star Wars? Also, I’m so far behind on Doctor Who it’s ridiculous! I’m still on the Matt Smith seasons haha


  5. Oh my, Christmas Yoda is adorable! A friend and I saw the new Star Wars movie on Christmas day and I liked it. Sounds like you had a lovely holiday, safe travels home!


  6. Your Christmas sounds nice. I think everyone went to see Star Wars. At least it seems so. It was so good! I can’t wait to see what happens in the next one. Enjoy your books and happy New Year!
