Sunday Post: Feb 12


Kimba hosts the Sunday Post each week. I like to take part because it gives me an opportunity to look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also love to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading.

Busy weeks

My husband had chemo treatments this week. He’s doing great, but it’s hard not to worry. Now he’s in the time period where he feels really tired so he’s not doing too much except rest. The doctor is doing more scans next month. Our son was still here so he helped out a lot during the chemo week. Our oldest daughter came to visit over the weekend and we had a wonderful time with all of our kids here. We went out to eat several times–celebrated my husband doing well and I had a pre-birthday celebration since the kids were all here. So fun.

This last week our son was in LA and Denver and we took care of his dog. Donnie, his mini-dachshund, missed our son and needed extra love and patience so I spent a lot of time with him on my lap which meant I didn’t get very much done–except when I went out somewhere. I had several appointments and those took most of two days. As I said, busy weeks.

Crazy weather

We had days in the 50’s and days of snow all within a couple days of each other the last couple weeks. Our snow melted very fast! Next week we’ll have more warm weather and by the weekend they’re forecasting some 60 degree days!


Not much blogging done. Not much web surfing either. The internet was down again some. We moved the router to a more central location in the house and that seems to help. My year commitment to this internet company ends in April and I’m looking for other options.

Are  you doing anything special for Valentine’s Day? My husband and I went out to dinner this last week to avoid the rush!

What did you do last week? What did you read? What books did you collect? What are you planning?
