Sunday Post: Feb 14


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.valentine-card

Last Week–home and blog

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day yesterday. My husband and I went out to lunch. We don’t do a lot for Valentine’s Day. We try to surprise each other on “mundane” days! But I do like to make cards for him. So this card was for Valentine’s Day.

Sorting, packing continues for the foreseeable future

I’m doing a last sort of my books and have a number of bags to donate to my library. I’ve got a box of mysteries packed and am working on my fantasy and science fiction books. I have more fantasy and science fiction books so this sorting takes longer. I’m trying to decide which books I still want to read. Of course, we still have lots of other stuff to pack, too.

The blog

Blogging and visiting other blogs is a great way to take a break from my sorting and packing!

Interesting on the internet

Molly @ Molly’s Book Nook has begun a new feature called Kick Butt at Blogging. This looks like it’s going to be a great resource for blogging–beginning a blog and continuing to blog. I love to find out new resources for blogging. announces new information about the new Star Trek series! “It will air its first episode in January 2017 on CBS before moving exclusively to CBS’ digital subscription service.” — What does that mean? A CBS digital subscription? If every channel starts charging for a digital subscription where will it end? Jan

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. Your card is gorgeous! How did you do that paper lace?

    I think channel-specific subscriptions are one of the waves of the future, more’s the pity. Though I would willingly subscribe to a PBS channel and possibly a BBC channel (or even better, a best-of-British-TV channel.) But we may have to bite the bullet and subscribe to CBS for the Star Trek series, assuming the price is reasonable. My husband and I have been watching Star Trek together since ST:NG debuted when we were still dating.

    Good luck packing your books. It’s hard to sort and prune, I know. I’m doing some of that myself.


    1. Thanks, Lark. I have a die cut machine and I used a number of dies which had small designs inside them. I cut those apart and then pieced a design together in the shape of a heart. Lots of fun to do. Originally a design like that would have been cut by hand–sometimes freehand by an artist. So I took the easy way…lol!

      I agree about channel subscriptions. I, too, I would subscribe to PBS, BBC, maybe HBO. My husband and I came to ST:NG later. I think it might have debuted when we lived in Germany with the military. Acorn TV has British TV shows and the subscription price isn’t too bad.

      I’m getting my books finished. I work on that a little every day in between other packing projects.


  2. Thank you so much for featuring my blog! That’s so sweet of you 🙂

    That’s a really cute card you made! My husband and I don’t celebrate. Like you, I’d rather “celebrate” our love on “mundane” days haha 😀


    1. Thanks, Molly. I’m enjoying your blog series as well as other posts on your blog.

      Yeah, the mundane days are “better” LOL


  3. All of your new books look fun. Had to laugh at some of those titles:) And such a lovely card. No significant other so I’m watching The Walking Dead all day. LOL


  4. I like the look of some of your new NetGalley books. I’m not allowed (self-imposed rule) to request any until I’ve gotten my TBR pile under control, so having to avert my eyes. A lot!!!


    1. I know what you mean by NetGalley. Deborah. I’m really trying not to request too many because I have a lot of non-NetGalley books I want to read!


  5. Yay, glad to hear you’re donating your books to your local library! At my library we sell donated books to help raise money for the library, so donations are always much appreciated, and it’s such a nice way of giving books a new lease on life, getting them into the hands of eager new readers.


    1. I so agree, Jane. I love libraries and the library I belong to right now also sells donated books and I love that. And I’ve had way too many books. I donated lots of books last year and am doing another purge as we get ready to move next month. Fewer boxes of books to move is a good thing!
