Sunday Post: October 23


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.

Birthday and allergies

I didn’t get a Sunday Post done last week. We celebrated our younger daughter’s birthday all weekend. Our older daughter came for the weekend to help celebrate, too. We had a fire in the fire pit in our yard and roasted marshmallows. The next day we had a fun afternoon at a local winery and then a broiled salmon dinner and birthday cake at the end of the evening. We were so busy having fun and that the Sunday Post didn’t get done.

This week I’ve been fighting allergies so not much done several days either at home or on the internet. My eyes are itching like crazy even after several allergy pills. I’ll have to see how this next week goes to see how much I get done on my blog.

The weather is beautiful here especially this weekend with bright blue skies and temps about 70. We took a drive through some of the older neighborhoods in town and the trees and yards are beautiful.

On the road again . . .

My husband is flying to Spokane next week to drive our car back to Iowa. That will take several days, but it will be good to have our car back.
