Sunday Post: October 9

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

Back home

We’ve been home for a week and I’m still tired. We got a few things done.Our house in Maryland finally sold. It was supposed to happen in August, but at least it’s done now.

We spent a lot of time figuring out when our car will be ready to drive home. We still don’t have a date when the car repair shop says the car will be ready. That is irritating since we need to make a plane reservation and it gets more expensive the closer to the date we need to fly.

And on the road again . . .

We decided at the last minute to go see my father-in-law on Saturday. My husband is staying part of next week to take him to doctors’ appointments. Our daughter is also driving over and coming home on Sunday so I’m going to come home with her. A short visit–but only three hours away.

October weather

We are finally getting some fall weather. I love the cool crisp mornings and the bright blue skies in the afternoon. My cats are loving the sunshine coming in windows now that the sun is lower in the horizon.

Meeting people

We’ve not had a chance to meet too many people since we’ve moved here, but in October I plan to start joining some groups. We’ll see how that goes!

The blog

My blog was unavailable for a couple days this week. I finally found out one of my plug-ins was causing problems. I wasn’t able to access my site and no one else could either. That was annoying!

Because I couldn’t access the site I also didn’t get things done on my blog. I’m hoping to get more done this week.

Blog posts

My books

What I’m reading

I didn’t get any books last week, but I made up for that by requesting books from NetGalley, using the new Amazon Prime deal and also buying a few books!

Next Week–home & blog

I’ve got a busy week planned. I want to put away summer clothes and find my winter clothes. They may still be in a box somewhere!
