Sunday Post: April 2


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.

Home and Blog

Last weekend my husband and I visited our daughter in Illinois. Our younger daughter also came along since she had a flight on Sunday from Chicago. She flew to Ireland with some of her cousins for a quick trip (Sunday – Thursday). The group had six adults and four young children (including two babies born last fall). They had a great time, but the children all got sick (vomiting and diarrhea) during the trip and several of the adults were sick by the time they got home. At this point everyone, but one adult has been or is sick! My daughter is back home, but staying in bed. Hopefully, she’ll feel better soon.

I’ve been fighting allergies all week. I’m getting ready to try a new allergy medicine to see if that will help. I guess spring is slowly appearing which is also making my allergies an everyday affair. Our trees are getting ready to leaf out and some trees, shrubs and bulbs in the area are blooming.

My husband is getting ready to start building a fence around our backyard. We got the building permit last week and he plans to buy the materials soon. A fence will make it easier to take care of our kids’ dogs without fear they’ll run after deer or some other animal invading their yard.

I’m going with my daughter to my great niece’s baptism next week. We are both looking forward to that and my daughter will be a Godmother to Guiliana. It will be nice to see some of the family there plus meet the new baby.


I’m planning to change-up my blog a little. I haven’t decided exactly what I’ll do yet, but I’m thinking about it and hope to come up with some more ideas this week.

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. That is horrible that they all got sick on their trip, bummer. Sounds like you have been busy, hope you had a great weekend and have a great week! Happy reading!



  2. Wow, you my dear have been busy. Yes, a fence helps with the wee ones. Your poor sister, that must have been the trip from hell and to Ireland. Boo, that is on my bucket list.


    1. At least they did all have a good time before they all got sick, Kimba! I hope you get to Ireland. It’s wonderful.


  3. Oh, what a terrible, terrible shame:(. It’s always a miserable experience to be smitten by that particular illness as dignity then takes a hike – but to have to endure it when away from home is horrible. Yes – we had a 6 ft fence built a couple of years ago after the former one was destroyed in a storm. It’s great to have a sturdy boundary to the property. Hope everyone feels a lot better this week – I’ve just finished reading From Ice to Ashes by Rhett C Bruno and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I will be looking out for The Circuit. Have a great week, Jan.


    1. Thanks and I agree, Sarah. It had to be about the worst set of circumstances, but they are getting over it finally. And from the sound of things dignity certainly took a hike.
