Kimberly 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.

Beautiful weather this week. Only one day of rain. Next week it’s supposed to be in the 80’s and even up to 90 degrees one day. With all the good weather the fence is nearly done. It’s beautiful!
I’ve had a wonderful Mothers Day weekend. One of my daughters and I spent Saturday together first going to a plant sale at the Botanical Gardens, out to lunch, coming home to plant some of the plants, then off to get a pedicure! Such a nice day! As you can see from the photos above the botanical staff has a sense of humor! While we were transplanting our plants my daughter’s dog Bailey had her first swim of the season!
Sunday we plan to just stay in since lots of people will be out and about. My husband has given me a couple of online genealogy classes which start this next week. I’m excited about those. I also got my DNA results back from Ancestry. Now I’m trying to figure them out!
Not a lot of time on the internet this week. Good reading though.

Multiplatform takes on horror with a trilogy that brings Miss Peregrine to middle grade with an online Skeleton Creek twist! Come Play With Us…
Buildings have memories. Places bear scars. We’ve all had those moments–a chill in the air, a sense that something terrible once happened where we stand. But some houses are more than scary. They’re hungry.
Larkspur House has lured five kids inside, and they’re trapped. The five will have to look carefully–there are clues to the house’s secrets scattered all over the grounds, and if they can figure out the past, it might show them a way out of their terrifying present. Will they stay strong enough to discover the house’s weakness and escape? Or will the horrors of Larkspur House scare the five right out of their minds?
Each book in the series is full of creepy photos and objects that tell one story in the book, and unlock exciting, choose-your-own-adventure stories online where kids try to survive the house!

Modern slavery is happening all around you . . . and you can be part of the solution.
Human trafficking is not just something that happens in other countries. Nor is it something that just happens to “other people,” such as runaways or the disenfranchised. Even kids in your own neighborhood can fall victim. But they don’t have to.
Through true stories and expertise from her many years of boots-on-the-ground experience, anti-trafficking expert Nita Belles teaches you everything you need to know about human trafficking in the United States, helping you identify risk factors, take practical steps to keep your loved ones and neighbors safe from predators, and recognize trafficking around you, so that you can help fight it.
What did you do last week? What did you read? What books did you collect? What are you planning?
