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
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there!
My daughter from Illinois came to visit for Mother’s Day. We went to a play and out to dinner on Saturday. So much fun. My kids gave me a fire pit for Mother’s Day! We sat outside Saturday night and enjoyed it. My husband gave me a swing for outside and my daughters are putting it together for me!
Out of my funk
I’m pretty much out of my funk! But now I’m kind of exhausted. Taking care of my son’s dog is tiring. He’s missing my son so he needs a lot of attention. He’s a sweet little dog and almost always happy! His tail wags a mile a minute! I can’t be in a funk when he’s around. But I do need a nap…lol.
I did get posts completed this week and finally visited a few blogs to see what was happening in the book blogging world! However, I still didn’t get much reading done.

Next Week–home & blog
I hope to find time to read in between watching Adonis. I’m loving siting outside with the dogs while they run around especially in the mornings when I can hear the birds singing and the air is cool. Such a peaceful time!
