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 brother and sister-in-law left this week to make their way slowly back to Oregon. They headed for the Badlands in South Dakota when they left here.
My older daughter came for the weekend. We’ve had a great visit. We got some things for the yard. It was very hot this weekend–in the mid-nineties. We got a wading pool for my daughter’s dog and Bailey had lots of fun jumping in and out of the pool!
We went to see a movie–You Before Me. A good movie, but I cried! I liked the actors.
My allergies have been in full mode. Lots of sneezing, itching eyes and runny nose.
Another busy week and I didn’t do a lot of reading or blogging.
It’s Sunday afternoon and I was busy all morning. Just realized I forgot to post this earlier!

Free Sync Audio books
Sync is back again for the summer (May 5 – Aug 17). Sync is a program which provides two free young adult audiobook downloads each week. Each set of books are only available for one week.
The Sync books available next week (June 16 — 23):
- How It Went Down by Kekla Magoon; Read by Charise Booth, Shari Poole, Kevin R. Free, et al
- The Auto-biography of an Ex-Colored Man by James Weldon Johnson; Read by Alan Bomar Jones
To listen to these books you must download Overdrive Media Console. It is available free to download at the Sync site.
Note: Some of the books have international restrictions, but some are available even if you live outside the U.S.
Next Week–home & blog
I’m headed to northern Wisconsin next weekend and have several appointments during the week so I expect to have another busy week.
My husband is arriving in less than two weeks! Yay! I’ve decided to fly back to Maryland and help drive out with my husband, my daughter and a sister-in-law. We will have another moving van and our second car so I thought having four people to help with driving would be good.
I have quite a bit to do before I leave for Maryland–some cleaning and a few more boxes to unpack. I suspect the next month will be very busy around here.
