Sunday Post: Feb 21

Sunday-PostThis 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

Snow again

We had snow when we woke up Monday morning, but then it rained on Tuesday and by afternoon it was all gone like it had never been there! Some warm weather on Saturday (in the 60’s) had me looking at the yard and I found our Lenten Rose blooming. Everything else is still dormant.

The move countdown continues

We took about 10 sacks of books to the library to donate. My husband then bought a half-dozen books from the library including two titles I just packed to take with us! Oh well, it supports the library.

One of the things I found are some old Kindle e-readers I’m no longer using. Amazon is buying back used Kindles right now so I’m getting those together to send to Amazon. That feels great–sell some things I’m no longer using, get some money and I don’t have to move them.

The boxes are beginning to pile up and shelves and bookcases are emptying.

I’m adding things to the to do lists and checking off a few things!

The blog

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. We’ve had snow and then clear ups too, but it did get nice yesterday- sun was out and it got nicer. Hope your weather stays nice. Nice review of Murder in an Irish Village. I may have to get that one!

    I love that cozy mystery list!

  2. The weather sounds crazy! Glad the snow is gone and hope it stays nice and sunny with all you’ve got going. It’s definitely great to get rid of or sell stuff so you don’t have to move it. I did some purging when we moved but not as much as I should have. We ended up doing a 2nd big purge as we were unpacking! Have a great week!

  3. I am curious about Skelton Blues. You husband cracks me up, but it is good he reads and as you said it supports the library. Cleaning up does feel good. I am going to hope the snow is done, done, done! Have a wonderful week!

    1. Thanks, Kimba. Skeleton Blues sounds interesting to me. I hope I’ll like it!

      Of course, I pointed out to my husband we already had those books and he just shrugged!

  4. That’s hilarious that your husband bought two books you packed up! xD I tend to do that when I sell books. Sell books, use money to buy more. It’s an endless cycle

  5. What a difference in weather you have had! Your Lenten roses look beautiful. I remember well the packing of books. They take up more space than you realize, don’t they? I hope your move goes well. I really hate the packing process, but once it’s over, it’s such a relief.

    Admiral is one I would like to read. I hope you are enjoying it! I hope you have a great week!

    1. When we moved here our movers said they’d never seen so many boxes of books–haha! Since then I’ve done a pretty good job of passing along books, but I still have a number of boxes! I’m ready to get moved!

      I finished Admiral and it was pretty good. Lots of action!

  6. This year, always when I see someone posts pics with snow, I feel nostalgic.
    Trust me, I am not a winter person by any means, but this year we didn’t have almost any snow here in Croatia, and now I kind of wish we had…
    I hope you’ll enjoy reading those books you got.

    I didn’t know that about kindle, that Amazon buys old ones…

    Can I ask you a question? I just read your “About me” but couldn’t comment there so I’ll just pop up my question here.

    I read you were on wordpress before on self-hosted site.
    I am thinking about transfering my own blog on self hosted domain, but am afraid I’ll loose my email subsribers (and wordpress ones) and that I’ll have to register again my blog on bloglovin so therefore lose my followers and would have to start again from zero.
    Is that the case or is there a way to keep your subscribers and followers and move them on your new domain with your blog?

    1. We didn’t get snow until the end of January this year (and then it was a blizzard–unusual for the area!)

      I don’t know that I can help too much with your email subscribers, Irena. I must admit at that time I wasn’t tracking subscribers or followers. However, wordpress.com does have a forwarding service (but it costs money to do that) if you move your blog so I did that for a year or two.

      I also posted about my move a couple times and gave the new address to the self-hosted site so I don’t think I lost too many followers, but again I don’t really know since I didn’t track that stuff then…lol.
