Sunday Post: Feb 7


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

A quiet week. My cold returned or a new one arrived so I kept a low profile. My husband is working on a big project at work so he worked all weekend and many evenings. The project is due next week so after that he can slow down a little (and start sorting and packing with me!) All the snow is gone after several days of 60+ degrees and rain. Our move and everything connected to the move are moving forward. Exciting (and stressful) times!

The blog

I added two more reading challenges this week and did quite a bit of reading. Since I rested a lot, I read a lot.

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. Thanks, Laura. I am looking forward to spring at our new house. It looks like there are some flowering trees so I’m looking forward to seeing those.


  1. Oh no! That’s awful about your cold. Hopefully it will finally go away soon. I can imagine getting the move prepared is both exciting and stressful. The last move I had to do was moving about 10 miles and it was stressful enough. I think a big one like the one you’re doing would put me over the edge! I’m a big fan of Elementary so I’ll have to go check out the article. Have a great week!


    1. I have several checklists for our move and luckily my husband is a rock and keeps me steady when I feel like running around like my hair’s on fire.

      I liked the photos he included in the blog post about Elementary.


    1. Thanks, Kimba. My husband is working with a co-worker and the co-worker is super stressed, but my husband just keeps plugging away…lol. Lots to do before we can move. Need to stay with it.


  2. Colds seem to be going around, hope yours goes away soon! And yeah packing and moving- not my favorite thing to do, but nice once you’re settled in the new place. I hope Murder in an Irish Village was good – like the sound of that one. Hope the new books are good as well.


    1. The cold is getting better. So that’s good! I really enjoyed Murder in an Irish Village, Greg. I hope you’ll get a chance to read it.


  3. I’m sorry you’ve had a cold — I hope you feel better soon. Packing is tough enough without a cold on top of it. I hope your move goes well. When does it take place?

    I see you’re enjoying the Mainely Needlepoint series — yay! And thank you for the shout-out for my rabbit hole post.


    1. Yeah,I haven’t done a lot of packing while I’ve had my cold, but it’s getting better. Yes, I’m enjoying the Mainely Needlepoint series. So fun to read. And you’re welcome for the shout-out, Lark!


  4. Your February banner is the absolute best! I love love love it! Especially the heart glasses. You are amazing Mom! I’m so impressed with what you’ve done with your blog!
