Sunday Post: Rain! And sun and cooler weather


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.

Another busy week. My allergies frustrated me all week since it keeps me blowing my nose even though I take allergy pills every day. My husband worked in the yard a lot this week. He found a few plants on sale including a small tree so those got planted plus the fence addition is finished and he’s working on a new flowerbed for me. I came outside and gave moral support! Luckily, all the plants were planted before the rains came! According to my rain gauge we got about three inches of rain over about three days. Since it was a dry summer it is really good to get rain and more is forecast for next week.

My husband is visiting his dad this weekend and I’m taking care of my daughter’s dogs while she’s out-of-town. They’re lots of company, but I’ve spent a lot of time drying off and wiping mud from the dogs’ feet! My daughter had a trial version of a meal delivery service she hadn’t had time to fix so I fixed the Tomato-Braised Cod. I haven’t tried any of these services before. The cod was good though I had to throw away some of the chard included in the box (received two days before).


We watched more of Ken Burns’ Vietnam. Very intense, but very good. I watched the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals baseball games on Friday and Saturday nights. One win for each team.


I’m still trying to get more blogging done. I am reading some really good books which is great!
