Sunday Post: September 25




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

Road trip

We’re on our road trip and as with anything it has its ups and downs–mostly ups. The scenery is beautiful, my husband and I have lots of fun together and we’ve listened to two audiobooks while driving! The downsides–we’re tired since it 20160919_104029is a busy schedule we’re keeping and we hit a deer in Canada.

We were almost to the U.S. border in Washington State when a deer jumped out and smashed in the right front of the car.

The big upside–we were unhurt and wonderful people stopped to help. We ended up having the car towed 120 miles to Spokane, Washington where we could find a repair shop and a rental car agency.

We’ve rented a car and are in Seattle for our niece’s wedding. We’re still trying to figure out what we’re going to do next since the car is not totaled, but will take some time to repair. However, all that is for next week. Right now we’re enjoying the wedding!

The blog

The first week we were gone I had posts scheduled and thought I would get more done while we were traveling, but that has been harder than it seems. Using my cell phone to prepare posts isn’t as easy as I thought and lots of places in the mountains and rural areas have no cell service. The next couple weeks I will see how much I can get done. I do hope to visit more blogs and catch up with what everyone else is doing.

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. Well, it sounds like your travels have been a bit adventurous, but I am glad that you are okay! Hope you enjoyed the wedding and time with family. Have a safe trip back!



  2. oh wow omg! I am so sorry you hit a deer o.o I am actually surprised it isn’t totaled, but it’s likely a good thing.
    Hope you get it fixed quickly, but I guess it’s now a trip to remember. Glad to hear no one is hurt


  3. I’m glad you were enjoying your trip but sorry about the accident. The deer looked as if it did a lot of damage. I hope you’re able to get it repaired without too much trouble, but great you were able to put it all behind you to get to the wedding. And I hope you’ve enjoyed it all!
