Sunday Post: I’m back again!

Sunday-Post

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.

Home

My husband and I drove to Indiana this last week where one of our daughter’s has moved. She sold her house in Iowa at the end of June (on the first day it was listed for sale!) so she bought a house in Indiana and signed the paperwork for it this week. My husband and I brought some of the things she had left at our house (including her two Labrador Retrievers!). Bailey and Juneau were so happy to see her!

Once the house was hers we painted her bedrooms, a hallway and living room. She wanted to get them painted before her household goods get delivered (next Thursday or Friday). I’m going to stay here in Indiana through next weekend and then meet up with my husband in eastern Iowa where he is working to get a house ready to sell.

Television

I didn’t watch any television this last week since my daughter didn’t get her internet connected until late in the week plus she doesn’t have a TV since her household goods aren’t here yet.

Blog

I haven’t done a Sunday Post for several months. I struggled earlier this year to get blog posts (especially reviews) written. I think I’m getting a handle on my review books so I’m happy about that. I’ve started just writing a few sentences for some of the books I read. So far that seems to work okay.

Since I’m travelling sometime next weekend I’m not sure I will get to do a Sunday Post and then the next week I won’t have internet for part of the week. I’m going to try to have some posts scheduled.

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. Welcome back! Sounds like you are so very busy right about now! Good luck to your daughter; moving is a horror, I should know.

    We have some books in common this week, yay. I have only read a few Hillerman books, but I did read the first two that Anne took over and am looking forward to the next one.I read Not a Sound and Blood Hollow too, because those are go-to authors for me. I have a book crush on Cork from the WK Krueger series, and the author himself seems like a really down-to-earth guy from articles I’ve read about him.

    Hope to chat again soon!

    1. Hi Rita! It’s good to hear from you. I really like Cork, too. I haven’t read any articles about Kreuger, but I like the series and Cork a lot. I also am reading the Longmire series by Craig Johnson. I feel like the two authors’ main characters are cut from the same cloth! Very fun to read. Not a Sound is the first Gudenkauf book I’ve read and I loved it.

      I agree that moving isn’t fun at all. Plus I’m really missing her not being in the same town I live in. We hadn’t lived in the same town since before she went to college. I remind myself this is a good move for her and we had two years getting to see each other every week. She has a great job and she has a cousin and her family living in Indianapolis. So it’s a good move for her.

  2. Hello! Welcome back. It sounds like you have been very busy. I dread moving again. We have been in the same home for the past 12 years and have begun talking about downsizing now that our nest is empty. Eep.

  3. Welcome back! Moving is always a massive pain. I love the photo of the dog in the box. My dog does stuff like that, too. Have a great week!

    1. With my daughter’s move there are lots of boxes around (and not much else!) so she has been getting into boxes even when she knows she’s not supposed to!

  4. Welcome back Jan! And congrats to your daughter on her move. Nice pics. Ooh I see you reviewed artificial Condition- I’ll have to go look at your thoughts. I’m a fan of that series. 🙂

  5. It’s lovely to have you back, Jan. I hope the new regime works. But small wonder you haven’t been writing much – all that decorating on top the the travelling… And the upheaval of your daughter’s move! There’s a lot of change going on which is very stressful. I hope you soon get a chance to ease up and bit and relax!

    1. Life is good, but stressful. It’s so good to help my daughter out, but I will be glad when the furniture and other household goods get delivered later this week!
