Sunday Post: Road trip


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.

Personal life

A busy week with appointments and getting ready for our trip across Iowa, Illinois and into Indiana. We left snowy Iowa. Illinois and Indiana have no snow!

We’ve visited our daughter in Illinois and had a great time with her. On to Indiana on Sunday to visit our younger daughter. We planned to stay a week and then come back at the end of March to take care of our Indiana daughter’s dogs while she’s gone for a week. I decided to stay the entire time and my husband will go back home to Iowa later in the week. Then we’ll meet in Indiana the first part of April and head back home to Iowa. I hope the snow is gone in Iowa by then!

Elf and Scorch (my two cats) came with us on this trip since I’ve had trouble with pet sitters. They’re staying with my Illinois daughter.

Blog life

I visited some of the blogs I’ve wanted to visit for several weeks. Always good to get reading recommendations and see what everyone has been up to. Still working to get reviews done. A never-ending process for me. It was hard to concentrate on reading this week so nothing finished. My husband and I are listening to a Dick Francis mystery in the car.

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. I got Wishes and Wellingtons and A Mind of Her Own too! I had forgotten about those. A Dick Francis mystery sounds like a good choice for a road trip. I haven’t read anything by him in forever but I’m sure they’d make a great listen. Enjoy your time at your daughter’s. I love the cat pictures. So expressive!


  2. Ooo I love Dick Francis. I’ve read them all and now most of the Felix Francis ones. I have a couple on audio. It’s wonderful you have the flexibility to choose to stay with your daughter. I hope you brought enough clothes and stuff.

    I got the big haul again and I’m working to get a bit ahead on reviews now. But every time I do, I sneak over and read some backlist I can’t resist. I’m not finished with my book for Tuesday’s review and I’ll have NO time tomorrow. So I have to get to it today. Enjoy your time in Indiana.


  3. Looks like you just missed the snow here in Illinois. We still have a little bit on the ground in my area, but it’s finally mostly gone. We’ll see if it stays that way.
